SAN FRANCISCO - Sept. 29, 2016 - Fig Publishing, Inc., the only crowdfunding and publishing platform allowing non-accredited investors to financially support video game development and publishing, has been approved by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to offer Fig Game Shares—PSY2 for Psychonauts 2. With this qualification, Fig will be the first and only company to allow all fans the opportunity to support and earn a return based on a single game’s sales through Fig Game Shares. This qualification paves the way for Fig to create and register new Fig Game Shares for its 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,” said Justin Bailey, founder and CEO, Fig. “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 Psychonauts 2 Fig crowdfunding campaign garnered more than $3.8 million in rewards funding and investment reservations from 24,100 fans who rushed to back the sequel to the critically-acclaimed title from developer Double Fine Productions, pledging their support for rewards or registering their investment interest. Now that the SEC has qualified Fig Publishing, Inc.’s offering statement, fans who registered their investment interest will be able to buy their Fig Game Shares. Fig Publishing, Inc. will soon reach out to investors with details to complete their investments online at fig.co. Backers should review or re-review the offering circular for Fig Game Shares—PSY2 that will be available on Fig’s website and the SEC's website.
As demonstrated by the success of Fig campaigns for Psychonauts 2, Consortium: The Tower, Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch and Outer Wilds, Fig has the power to rally players behind devs and their passion projects.
Fig has also released “The Story of Fig,” a new video introducing viewers to the company’s origin story, the team behind the Fig braintrust and their mission to turn great ideas into great games. To view the video, please visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?

A unique nautical-themed adventure game where players construct their own seafaring craft, Make Sail is the latest title from acclaimed developer Ziba Scott (Elegy for a Dead World, Girls Like Robots). The Make Sail fundraising campaign is live today on Fig at fig.co/sail, with a goal of raising $50,000.
