Antichamber is the seventh title to receive the financial backing of Indie Fund, who has recently helped in the success of such titles as Q.U.B.E. and Dear Esther. Antichamber has won almost as many awards as the number of years its been in development — casually since 2006 and full-time since 2010 — and has been nominated for three more than that.
