Atari and Fig, the video game division of the Republic platform, have released the Atari GamePool crowdfunding campaign.
The group aims to raise between $1 million and $15 million by August 6 to fund the creation of future titles. In its first 24 hours, the campaign raised $100,000.
With the capital raised, Atari intends to attract third-party developers to create new titles from its IP library that include Pong, Centipede, and Asteroids.
The minimum investment sponsors can make is $500 and the maximum is $1 million.
Fig’s crowdfunding campaigns offer investors the opportunity to receive payments based on the success of endgames.
Two or three of the biggest games will receive a budget of $1 million to $5 million, with the hope of generating $10 million to $25 million in sales.
In addition, four to six smaller projects will have budgets of $500,000 to $1 million, with sales targets up to $10 million.
The game publisher is already working with other creators on new titles for their classic game franchises.
