5TH Cell

Today 5TH Cell, the folks that brought you Scribblenauts have announced they will unveil a new IP on October 21 by way of Fig, a crowdfunding platform for gamers. Basically, today serves as an announcement for an announcement, but that seems to be all the rage these days. Sometimes we even get a teaser for a teaser, which is silly and awesome at the same time.

“At 5TH Cell, we’re excited about our latest original IP, which introduces new gameplay innovations and is set in a deep and engaging universe unlike any other. We look forward to bringing on investors who want to share in the future financial success of the title, while helping us to bring the game’s unique universe to life,” said Jeremiah Slaczka, CEO and Creative Director at 5TH Cell. “We watched Fig’s first campaign, Outer Wilds, attract over $800K in potential accredited investment and felt that of all the funding platforms, Fig’s was the perfect fit for our new IP.”

Exciting stuff for those of us that have enjoyed Scribblenauts titles over the years. After all, the franchise has sold over 13 million copies giving us new ways to solve puzzles in games. We’re looking forward to seeing what 5TH Cell brings to the table in the coming weeks.

Fig’s investment crowdfunding model provides an opportunity for accredited investors to participate in the potential success of a particular game title by investing in a co-publishing company created exclusively for that title. Fig’s co-publishing company holds certain distribution rights to the title, while the developer retains the title’s IP rights.
