Alexander Bruce's Blog


I'm the creator of Antichamber, a mind-bending psychological exploration game set within an Escher-like world. In April 2012, Antichamber was announced as the 7th game to receive funding from the Indie Fund.

Antichamber was first presented at the Tokyo Game Show for Sense of Wonder Night 2009, and has since gone on to win awards in major competitions including Make Something Unreal, the PAX10 and the 2012 Independent Games Festival. 

You can follow me on Twitter as @demruth, where I'll often talk about the day to day development of the game, or you can email me personally at [email protected]
