That picture never ceases to freak me out.
As previously brought to our fine pages by way of Anthony, the Indie Fund is a system in which a handful of successful, kind-hearted independent developers help fund up-and-coming indie games that seem like they could really catch on.
The Indie Fund has opened its doors as of today. There’s a call for submissions, with emphasis put on having a unique game, playable prototype, living-the-dream-style development team (lots of ramen consumption), and the chance to earn the investment money back. Sounds sensible enough.
“We raised enough money to fund 5 or 6 games over the next 2-3 years and we are convinced that we will see more promising games than we can fund. If all goes well we will raise a second, larger round when this one comes to an end.”
This is grand news for hopeful devs, sure, but it’s definitely something everyone should be happy to see.
