Double Fine's new space roguelike comes backed by big indies
Double Fine has announced that Spacebase DF-9
, a sci-fi roguelike, is heading into alpha release with the help of funding from some big names in the independent game development community.
Initially developed as part of Amnesia Fortnight 2012, Double Fine's annual internal game jam
lists among its supporters Humble Bundle, make all LLC, Hemisphere Games, AppAbove Games, Adam Saltsman (Canabalt

"We are all very appreciative of the food and supplies sent by our generous indie benefactors," said Spacebase
project lead J.P. LeBreton in a statement.

represents one of these proposed titles. The other has not yet been named.
