Spacebase DF-9 was one of several ideas presented for voting for Double Fine's Amnesia Fortnight 2012 project, where users would be able to vote for the game concepts they felt they would want to play the most. Spacebase DF-9 was an idea presented by designer-programmer JP LeBreton. The title received the second most votes and was one of five other titles that Double Fine stated they would develop into full games.[1] A full commercial version of the game was announced on October 15, 2013, with an alpha version being available to purchase through Steam Early Access.[3]

Double Fine announced on September 17, 2014 that the full game would be released in October, 2014. In addition, they promised to release the game's LUA source code to allow the community to develop new content and features independently.[5]
