Skullgirls DLC crowdfunding page hits $190K in a day

Campaign page also details new DLC character Squigly as well as other potential characters via stretch goal details.


The developers at Lab Zero Games have opened a Skullgirls DLC fundraising page over on crowdfunding site Indiegogo, with the sole purpose of using the money to release DLC characters for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC fighting game.

The target goal is $150,000 with 30 days left before it closes. The page has so far raised $191,175.

Not only does the campaign page feature a breakdown on one the upcoming characters (the undead opera singer Squigly), but also a list of stretch goals if the campaign’s target reaches beyond its goal. These include potential new DLC characters like Big Band and B.Dahlia, and new stages and story mode missions based on the DLC characters.

The perks for contributing varies: $5 will net gamers exclusive Skullgirls wallpapers while $400 will net contributors a limited edition of the game’s soundtrack, a random postcard-sized sketch, a “booster” title in the contributors credits, a Steam code for the PC release, and other benefits.

Squigly will be available for free for a limited time if the campaign is fully funded. For even more information, check out the Indiegogo page.

Skullgirls was praised by critics for its fighting system, distinctive characters, beginner-friendly tutorials and GGPO network options.
