Fig, a San Francisco, CA-based gaming crowdfunding platform, raised $7.84m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Spark Capital and Greycroft.
The company intends to use the funds to expand operations.
Led by CEO Justin Bailey, Fig is a platform for funding and developing games from well-known independent studios as well as ones from up-and-coming indie teams with the direct support of a community of passionate gamers.
The company works with developers at every stage, from providing development advances to publishing and distribution and marketing support when games are ready for launch.
In the meantime, the community helps Fig publish games through crowdfunding and investment campaigns. When games that complete campaigns on Fig start selling, the developer, the company and the shareholders from the community all share the revenue from the work done together.
