Fox has a background in digital marketing and was most recently Director of Client Engagement at VMLY&R. "Daniel’s experience in game development and digital marketing make him a perfect fit for this role," AMP’s Melville said of the hire. In the newly created role, Fox will create and acquire RPGs and related products and work with new and established AMU creators to identify opportunities for extending their brands into the world of games. AMU publishes collections of top daily strips including Zits, Dilbert, Mutts, Baby Blues, FoxTrot, Sherman’s Lagoon, and many more, as well as top middle grade graphic novels such as Big Nate and Phoebe and Her Unicorn.
In addition to the IPs that might create fodder for new RPGs, Fox made clear that bringing in design talent is also a priority. "There are a growing number of RPG designers looking for the right partner to bring their games to life in the broader RPG market," he said. "We intend to be that partner at AMU."
