30w ago - Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow announced that Skullgirls color DLC are incoming today complete with some new characters as outlined below.
To quote: Since Skullgirls was released last year, our fans have loved the flexibility our powerful 3D engine provides us when it comes to character color palettes and have been clamoring for more. So we're happy to announce that after a long wait, Skullgirls will finally be getting DLC character color packs today!
Each character color pack is $1 and contains four new color palettes. We're also offering a bundle of all 8 color packs, which can be purchased for the discounted price of $5.
So, let's take a look at the character packs - chances are some of these new color schemes will seem awfully familiar, as we created them with extensive fan feedback.
40w ago - Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow unveiled a new Skullgirls update today which includes a free character and stage with details below.
To quote: Last week, Lab Zero Games, the new developer of Skullgirls, started an Indiegogo campaign to keep the game growing with the addition of new characters.
The results have simply blown us away – our amazing fans raised $150,000 to fund Squigly, our first DLC character, in under 24 hours. And now, a week later, we've more than doubled that and are well on our way to funding a second character.
So sometime this summer, all owners of Skullgirls will be able to download Squigly free! Not only will you get this awesome, parasite-infested opera singer to play with, you'll also get her story mode and a new stage.
In addition to Squigly's stage, we'll also be developing a new stage, the River King Casino, that will be also be released free. Check out this early concept sketch:
I did say it was early. But in the coming weeks, you'll see that rough sketch turn into a beautiful, hand-painted 3D stage.
In addition to an all-new track by Castlevania: Symphony of the Night composer, Michiru Yamane, this stage will feature our "Patron Saint" contributors'...
