Skullgirls IndieGoGo Campaign is finally over with jaw dropping results
$825,000 Stretch goal as been reached.
Skullgirls is getting 5 DLC characters.
After the game's release, Reverge Labs laid off "the entire" Skullgirls development team for unknown reasons. However, after about five months of silence the team revealed they had started their own studio, Lab Zero Games, to continue development on the PC port as well as future patches and DLC. This was only possible as the IP rights fully rested with the original publishers, Autumn Games, who are "fully behind the new studio".
Lab Zero Games said they will release a PC version sometime this summer.
On February 25, 2013, Lab Zero Games set up an Indiegogo page for Skullgirls, in an effort to raise $150,000 for the development of the game's first DLC character, Squigly. Contributor rewards included desktop wallpapers, the game's soundtrack, a Steam key when the game is ported to PC, Steam keys of another Marvelous AQL title, Half Minute Hero, ringtones from the voice actresses of the game, and the chance to add a background character to the game, among others.
Within several hours, the crowdfunding page received one-third of their goal, and reached its initial goal within one day along with Squigly's story and stage. The new stage will, of course, feature an all-new track from Michiru Yamane
The guys at zone-archive.com who are fans and supporters of Skullgirls (and hired on as an animator for the game) made a little flash of Big Band being successfully funded.
Continuing on with DLC characters, if $600,000 is raised they will start working on another character. This time the character will be fan voted, to spur fans to this goal they are releasing images of a new character which fans would then be able to vote on at every $20,000 raised.
Anyone who contributes at least $1 will be eligible to vote for the 3rd DLC character, so be sure to tell your friends to contribute before the campaign ends on March 27th!
Voting will go as follows:
- Four rounds of voting
- 1st round: All characters, 3 votes
- 2nd round: Top 16 from 1st round, 3 votes
- 3rd round: Top 8 from 2nd round, 3 votes
- 4th round: Top 3 from 3rd round, 1 vote
Polls will be e-mailed directly to all contributors.
We’ll be keeping an eye out for suspicious votes. Any votes deemed suspicious will be thrown out, and will not count toward the results of the poll.
