Random Games was founded by Tony Harman in September 2017. He has previously held executive positions at Nintendo, DMA Designs (the gaming company behind Grand Theft Auto), and Wyeth Ridgway who worked on Star Trek and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Random Games announced that it is creating a “community-owned” gaming franchise called the Unioverse. This will allow fans and developers to use in-game assets to create their own games, comics, or T-shirts. You can also sell your creations and keep the cash.

Tony Harman, co-founder of Marvel, said that he imagined if Marvel released 3D models and character art and encouraged fans to make and profit from their fan films and comics. This is how huge this idea really is. The Unioverse is being built by a group of top-class writers, artists, and developers. We are giving it away.
