Publishing group believes indie development is 'much better'

Some of the founders of the Indie Fund publishing group have spoken about the state of indie development in 2013 and how they would welcome a time that they're not needed. Speaking to GamesIndustry International, Aaron Isaksen, Nathan Vella, and Matthew Wagner said that indie developers have more avenues open to them this year compared to when the fund commenced. 

"If we become irrelevant because there are better deals elsewhere, either via Kickstarter or direct through people's communities, then great," says Isaksen. Indie Fund, which also includes Ron Carmel, Jonathan Blow and Kelee Santiago among its members, offers funding to developers with few strings attached. In a refreshing move, the terms of their investment model are available for all on their website

Four games have published via the Indie Fund: Dear Esther, Q.U.B.E., and Antichamber, along with the upcoming co-op heist game Monaco. The first three games recouped their investment in a few days of going on sale, with Antichamber even doing it in a few hours. The Indie Fund has got a great record in successful games but here's hoping it's not going away soon.
