Indie Fund backs Kachina, a game about a hole in the ground

Kachina, a game about manipulating a hole in the ground, is being backed by the Indie Fund, according to a post published today on the organization's blog.

The game, which is in development for Windows PC, Mac and iOS, began as part of Molyjam and is being developed by Ben Esposito, who worked recently at Giant Sparrow as a designer for The Unfinished Swan. Kachina was featured at GDC's Experimental Game Design Panel last month. For more on the game, be sure to check out our hands-on impressions from Indiecade 2012

Indie Fund is an organization designed to "support the growth of games as a medium by helping indie developers get financially independent and stay financially independent," according to its official description. Co-founder Aaron Isaksen of AppAbove Games recently said that the Indie Fund becoming irrelevant would be "kind of a success state."
