New Crowdfunding Platform Fig Closes Investment Portion of “Outer Wilds” Campaign

Just one day after Outer Wilds campaign was launched, new crowdfunding platform Fig has closed the investments portion of the project after the game secured $50,000 from investors (and $500,000 in investment interest).

Outer Wilds 3Outer Wilds, which was created by Mobius Digital’s creative director, Alex Beachum, is described as a space exploration game that pitches the player headfirst into an alien world of campfire tunes and time loops, a place where planets are always changing and curiosity is your compass.

Outer Wilds was originally created as a thesis project for the USC Game Program. As a result of its popularity, Beachum and his team are determined to bring the game to a much bigger audience. The alpha version even won the Seamus McNally Grand Prize and Excellence in Design awards at the 2015 IGF awards.

The company shared:

Outer Wilds 2“Equal parts astrophysics simulation, narrative adventure, and backpacking in space, Outer Wilds is Majora’s Mask meets Apollo 13, putting you in the cockpit of a fledgling space program and daring you to discover the secrets of a wild, constantly changing solar system. Strap on your hiking boots, check your oxygen levels, and get ready to venture into the unknown.”

Fig announced in a recent email:

Outer Wilds 1“The investor interest was overwhelming and much more than we anticipated — in just the first two days, we received investment interest exceeding 10x the maximum limit on this opportunity. Unfortunately, [that] means this investment opportunity is closed.”

Since its launch, the campaign has successfully raised $75,000 out of its $125,000. It is set to close at the end of September.
