So who here's a fan of Skullgirls? Excited about the indegogo? Any special characters you want to see make it in the next 8 days?

I for one am busy being hyped out of my mind for Big Band.

Skullgirls is one of the two fighting games I've been actively interested in lately (the other being Capcom classic Vampire Savior). I have it on both platforms it's on now (and just bought a new fightstick for my PS3 so I can actually play it on there again), and pledged $30 for the Indiegogo campaign as soon as possible after it went up. If Indiegogo's pledging system didn't suck, I would have pledged another $20 as soon as I found out about the "drunk commentator" stretch goal.

I'm hyped for the new characters, not necessarily because I plan to play as Squigly, Big Band, or the mystery character, but because it's a reason I'll be able to play against certain #tmk people who don't have any interest otherwise.

It's too well-animated to be porn.

At the time of writing, the funding campaign is at just over $721K.

At $725K, they'll expand the Robo-Fortune bonus voice pack into a complete playable character, along with donating the Z Engine to the Mane6 team.

Right now, these are the add-ons confirmed to be funded from this campaign:

-Squigly (character)
-Big Band (character)
-Mystery third character (character to be determined by voting from funders)
-Republican Double (voice pack)
-Robo-Fortune (voice pack, possibly character)
-Female Announcer (commentator pack)
-Salty Parasoul (voice pack)
-Drunk Commentator (commentator pack)
-Valley Girl Painwheel (voice pack)
-Saxploitation (voice pack)
-Anime Peacock (voice pack)
-Real Soviet Announcer (commentator pack)

So everyone except Filia, Cerebella, and Squigly will be getting new voice packs. Cerebella's VA (who's also the VA director for the game) donated an announcer pack instead, and Squigly and Filia each have two VAs, which causes some logistics problems.

The Indegogo campaign was so, so much more successful than I ever dreamed it would be. I couldn't be happier with the results. There is literally not one stretch goal they didn't meet, and that blows my mind.

The fanvotes are now over, and Eliza (an Egyptian diva/vampire) and Beowulf (a wrestler who wields a chair called the Hurting) are going to be added to the game.

Woo! Beowulf wins! Which is pretty cool by my standards.

PC beta's out. I tried it, but my laptop's just a tad too weak for it, so I get slowdown, and I'm out of town visiting relatives, so I can't test properly on my desktop.

Bummer. Is there a way to obtain the PC version if you didn't get access to it in the kickstarter?

I think what he's trying to say is that more satisfaction can be drawn from the game's basic animations than any amount of pornography that third parties would attempt to provide of it.

That's not what "Rule 34" is though. He was just trying to be clever and failing at it.

While well animated and porn are not mutually exclusive, the game is really about a lot more things than titillation.

That being said, one of the contracted animators for Skullgirls got hired because he did a pornographic fan animation, notable for being well animated.

Except that Lab Zero and ZONE have maintained for some time that his hiring had nothing to do with the porn stuff.

He never made sense to begin with.

Didn't hear about that. It's a bit surprising that animation didn't factor in to his being hired as a contractor all things considered, but I can imagine why they would discount it when hiring him to sever any possible ties to an unofficial bit of fan porn.
