Justin Bailey, founder and CEO of Fig explains the new feature of game shares and its relation to Wasteland 3:
“As other crowdfunding platforms continue to struggle, Fig continues to transform the entire video game ecosystem, from the way fans interact and support their favorite games, to the way games are published. Fans now possess the ability to support the development of their favorite games and financially benefit from their success.”
