Indie Fund adds more investing partners

Changes to structure will help scheme support more games

Indie Fund, which has helped support games like Dear Esther and Antichamber, has recently made some organisational changes to allow it to add new investors.

"Last year we started partnering with individual investors outside of the fund with good results. More people got to participate, which meant developers had access to more capital, ideas and advice," said Indie Fund in an update.

"With this more ad-hoc model, investors could vary the amount they wanted to put into each game, allowing more flexibility depending on life changes, interest in the specific projects, and how much money is available. Games like Future Unfolding, Duskers, and now Armello have been funded with this more flexible model."

But the update also made clear this change wouldn't affect the principles that Indie Fund was founded on, and it would continue to be selective about the games it supported and transparent about its processes.

"We're now fully adopting this model, and Indie Fund will be managed by a much larger group of investors moving forward. We're especially pleased that some of the new partners are developers we've funded that are now looking to invest in the next generation of developers."

The current investors in Indie Fund are:

  • Ron Carmel
  • Aaron Isaksen
  • Kellee Santiago
  • Matthew Wegner
  • Nathan Vella, Capy Games
  • Kyle Gabler
  • Jonathan Blow
  • Tommy Refenes
