Just days after saying they would welcome a time when their services aren't needed, the folks behind the Indie Fund have announced the fifth game they'll be backing. This time it's Kachina which is being developed by Ben Esposito who was the level designer of last year's The Unfinished Swan.

On the game's website, Ben describes Kachina as a "physics-based toy that evokes Katamari Damacy's sense of order and scale." From the screenshots available, you can see the same bright, colorful aesthetic and that exploration and interacting with various animals will be key.

Maybe the most interesting tidbit of information comes from the Indie Fund website which reveals that Kachina was devised during the Molyjam, the event that challenged developers to create games based on the infamous Peter Molydeux parody Twitter account. I'd be interested to know what tweet gave Ben the inspiration for the game; maybe that's something we'll learn soon.

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...more

SteamWorld Heist's first screenshot leaves me wondering

While I tend to get annoyed when studios put out a lone screenshot, I can tolerate the practice depending on the circumstances. Image & Form doesn't have much in the way of assets for SteamWorld Heist, its turn-based foll...more
