Independent game investment group Indie Fund has revealed that it's backing first-person puzzler Antichamber, financially helping Alexander "Demruth" Bruce finish developing the award-winning title.

Indie Fund has so far supported the development of seven independent projects, many of them recipients of prominent awards. Antichamber previously won the Technical Excellence category at the Independent Games Festival, grabbed a top spot for the mod category at the Make Something Unreal Contest, and took home many other accolades.

Other award-winning titles Indie Fund has backed include Facepalm Games' The Swapper, Pocketwatch Games' Monaco, Toxic Games' Q.U.B.E., and Thechineseroom's Dear Esther -- the latter two have already released and recouped their Indie Fund investments not long after their debuts.

Bruce has been working on Antichamber (previously known as Hazard: The Journey Of Life) on and off since 2006, and began developing the title full-time in 2010. He's expected to use Indie Fund's cash to complete the title, and release it for Windows and Mac some time this year.

A news post published on Indie Fund's site reads, "We've played the game multiple times over the last few years, at various states of completion, and each time the design and feel of the game shifts, and feels more refined. Kudos to Alex for iterating on his work and incubating it until it's really ready."

I really respect what the Indie Fund guys are doing. It's a great thing to leverage your own success to help out other indie devs.
