Dungeons and Dragons is set to be adapted for video games based on the unpublished work by Gary Gygax.
Fig, a community funding and publishing platform has signed a deal with the Gygax Trust (in charge of the late Gary Gygax intellectual property). Gygax was the co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons who passed away in 2008 at the age of 69.
The two plan to find developers for Gygax’s IP, launch Fig campaigns to raise money, and publish several titles. Additional information about those games will be announced later this year.
Fig is a specialist fundraising platform that allows people to invest in projects as investors with a share in the resulting profit if the project is successful.
Gail Gygax released the following statement:
“The worlds and characters to be discovered in my husband’s unpublished intellectual property are an incredibly important part of his legacy. Therefore, it was paramount that we partner with an advanced and innovative platform such as Fig that gave us complete control of his creative vision.”
