Drawn to Life, Run Roo Run, and Scribblenauts developer 5th Cell has turned to Fig to find funding for its new title, Anchors in the Drift

The studio is looking to raise $500,000 to finish Anchors, a free-to-play action RPG that lets players craft their own special abilities by collecting and combining ability cards. 

Fig, founded by former Double Fine COO, Justin Bailey, lets developers raise cash through conventional crowdfunding, but, unlike Kickstarter, it also gives users the chance to invest in projects and receive a cut of the sales. 

It might be a new approach to crowdfunding, but its one that convinced 5th Cell Fig was the right platform for Anchors

"We're very excited to be partnering with Fig, and love that they've created a platform for crowdfunding as well as investment," said 5th Cell CEO, Jeremiah Slaczka. 

Currently in pre-alpha, Anchors in the Drift has so far raised $73,500 after launching earlier today.
