Lab Zero Games raises more than $800,000 from Skullgirls’ Indiegogo campaign
Posted on March 28, 2013 by Oscar Gonzalez

After the dust has settled, the “Keep Skullgirls Growing” Indiegogo campaign has raised $829,829 which means that Lab Zero Games will be able to release 4 DLC characters (Squigly, Big Band, and 2 mysterious characters), story modes for 3 of the four characters, a hell of a lot of extra DLC, and the guys at Mane6 will be able to use the Skullgirls’ engine. Not bad for 31 days of fundraising.

The original goal of the Indiegogo campaign was to pay for one DLC character, Squigly. The cost for that character was $150,000 and that amount was reached in a less than a day. As mentioned on the Indeigogo page, the original publisher Autumn Games was going through a legal battle that cut the funding for any additional characters for the game.

A surge of funding came after the announcement that Lab Zero Games would give the game’s engine- called the “Z Engine” named after Design Director Mike “Mike Z” Zaimont- to Mane6 who is currently developing an original fighting game after their My Little Pony:  Fighting is Magic was stopped by Hasbro.

Now comes the hard work for Lab Zero Games of completing all the promised content with the money raised. New characters and content will be making their way to Xbox 360 and PS3 in the coming months with the PC version of Skullgirls coming out this summer.
