Wikia's Fandom is getting into the game publishing business

The Wikia-owned media platform Fandom is expanding its entertainment business and getting into video game publishing, starting with Thorium Entertainment's UnderMine.

Newsbrief: The Wikia Inc.-owned media platform Fandom is expanding its entertainment business and getting into game publishing, announcing its first signed project, the early access roguelike UnderMine by Thorium Entertainment, alongside the reveal. 

In a press release, Fandom’s VP of gaming Ben Robinson notes that the move is a “natural extension of the strong gaming community we’ve cultivated on Fandom.”
