'Fig' is a unique crowdfunding platform that allows users to finance new computer games. For indie developers, funding a brand new game can be a difficult process. This new site changes the way computer games are financed by allowing players to contribute to the development of new content.

The new platform operates by releasing one major studio game and one independent title each month. Fans can then fund the new computer games and earn rewards such as downloadable content or the opportunity to meet the game's developer. Users who provide a significant financial contribution can actually share in the game's revenue over time.

While there are a number of other crowdfunding platforms available, computer games have largely outgrown sites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo. 'Fig' therefore gives game developers an independent platform for funding their latest projects.
