Multiplay founder invests $125,000 into indie publisher Raw Fury

Indie publisher Raw Fury has the backing of Multiplay founder and vet Craig Fletcher.

GamesIndustry.biz and MCVUK report that the Swedish firm has benefitted from $125,000 from Fletcher's new investment firm Wicked Sick.

This was actually part of the $600,000 investment Raw Fury announced in December of last year. All the team at Raw Fury bought in as part of the funding round, with Unity founder David Helgason chipping in also. 

Fletcher will be advising the publisher as an angel investor, with the cash being used to "bolster Raw Fury's operations".

"Thanks for the money, dude"

Craig Fletcher is best known as the founder and CEO of Multiplay, the esports and digital infrastructure firm that was sold to UK High Street retailer GAME in 2015.

After the £20m deal, Fletcher was eventually promoted to SVP for esports and competitive game strategy before leaving at the end of 2017. The esports part of Multiplay has remained at GAME, with the retailer selling off the digital infrastructure aspect of the business to engine firm Unity for £19m.

Apparently, he makes a "killer full English breakfast" which he is welcome to demonstrate at any time. Just give us a call, Craig.

In real cool Raw Fury-style, CEO and founder Jonas Antonsson said in the announcement: "Thanks for the money, dude".
