Peter Bartholow, CEO of Lab Zero (formally known as Reverge Labs), has taken to Shoryuken’s forums to discuss pricing details for Skullgirls‘ upcoming first DLC character Squigly. The development team will be holding a fundraiser to help fund development cost of the character. As a reward, once she’s completed, Squigly will be made available free of charge for the first three months (or so) after her release. After this free period, she will be available for a meager $5.
Peter explained that releasing Squigly for free for everyone to download is much cheaper than providing DLC codes for everyone that donates. Instead, those who donate will be treated to beta access for the game’s forthcoming PC version and or other rewards. If funding is sufficient, the team would be interested in releasing a male DLC character for the game after Squigly is done and dusted.
A male Skullgirls character? That sounds very interesting. We’ll keep you posted on the donation drive details as they’re finalized.
