Unlike several other crowd-funding sites, Fig also functions as a publishing platform. Fans of the gaming projects on Fig can support pojects through either rewards-based campaigns like on Kickstarter, or through investing in shares tied to a game project's securities, i.e. Fig Game Shares™.

Back in 2016, Fig hosted four of the year's top ten crowdfunded games including Psychonauts 2, Wasteland 3, Jay and Silent BobL Chronic Blunt Punch, Consortium: The Tower, Kingdoms and Castles, Make Sail, and Trackless. Fig has a 78% campaign success rate, which is higher than most other crowdfunding platforms. So, if you're sick of watching your favorite Kickstarter campaigns fizzle out, maybe you'd want to consider a switch over to Fig.
