Video game crowdfunding and publishing platform Fig Publishing has received SEC approval to offer “Fig Games Shares – PSY2” for Psychonauts 2. The achievement allows Fig to be the first company to offer fans the chance to earn a return based on a game’s shares through Fig Games Shares. Fig can now register Fig Game Shares for other games.
“Enabling fans and communities to directly support and financially benefit from their favorite games is transformative to the publishing of interactive entertainment and beyond,” Fig founder and CEO Justin Bailey said. “Fig is committed to evolving video game publishing and crowdfunding in this direction that benefits fans, communities and developers, and ultimately to the making of great games.”
The Pyschonauts 2 campaign attracted close to $4 million in rewards funding and investment reservations from 24,100 fans.
