Double Fine has announced that Spacebase DF-9, a sci-fi roguelike, is heading into alpha release with the help of funding from some big names in the independent game development community. Initially developed as part of Amnesia Fortnight 2012, Double Fine's annual internal game jam, Spacebase lists among its supporters Humble Bundle, make all LLC, Hemisphere Games, AppAbove Games, Adam Saltsman (Canabalt), The Behemoth (Castle Crashers), Morgan Webb (G4's X-Play) and Rob Reid (Listen.com). "We are all very appreciative of the food and supplies sent by our generous indie benefactors," said Spacebase project lead J.P. LeBreton in a statement. Double Fine announced in June that it would be receiving backing from Indie Fund and other professional sources for two then-unannounced projects. Spacebase represents one of these proposed titles. The other has not yet been named. Rock, Paper, Shotgun has a larger feature on Spacebase DF-9, including the video presented above.
