The wonderful, wonderful people at Lab Zero games have officially launched the Skullgirls fundraiser via Indiegogo. The initial goal of the fundraiser is $150,000, and the proceeds will cover the development costs of the first DLC fighter for the game, Squigly. To better explain the goal of this fundraiser, the developers have released the below video. The video is very informative, and it includes a full breakdown of where your collective $150,000 will go, as well as an in depth look at Squigly and an explanation of her limited time free distribution. I am loving her animations so far!
Over $93,000 has already been donated at the time of this writing. That’s nearly two thirds of the initial goal.
This overwhelming support just speaks to the game’s very passionate fan base, and that amount is even more staggering when you consider that the fundraiser has only been live for less than 24 hours. If you are interested in donating to the fundraiser, or just excited by this very ambitious undertaking, head over to the Indiegogo page. There you can check out some of the long-term fundraising goals (we get Big Band – the game’s first male fighter – if we raise $375,000), as well as the donation rewards (donate $30 and you get a PC version of the game) and learn even more about Squigly.
