Should be interesting if they take me up on that!

BTW, Ravidrath, did you guys ever get the final amount of donations given after IGG ended? I'm a bit curious on that front.

I also made her two color palettes:



The first is based on a character called Rain so I thought it would be cool if she controlled water.

The second is a tribute to her Darkstalker influence combining both her as Morrigan and Sekhmet as Jedah.

Dude these are awesome! Can't wait to see what the Skullgirls team can come up with, concerning Eliza palettes when she obviously takes the crown.

Added Lilith because it didn't take time + her colors are more similar to Jedah.

I did not even conceive of the idea that Eliza's blood could be recolored to look like water. My hydro character's been staring me in the face this entire time and I didn't even realize it.

She must win this poll.

Edit : Totally throwing my hat in for Feng/Annie/Minette/*One of MikeZ's demos* in the next round.

Not really... it's not something that's easily separated out. If I had to guess, I'd say it was under $10k?

We're going to keep selling the Digital-only tiers through a Humble Store widget, which will go up when we're ready to roll out the first of the digital rewards.

Oh, cool, Humble's been on the ball recently with regards to indie pre-orders.

Talking about the digital rewards, any ETA for them yet?

Catching up from page 51 or so, SMH at the guyts asking for spoilers. We've gone this far without them, we'll go all the way without thinking about it.

...is what I want to say ideally, but I'm just afraid of lowered expectations/getting sniped by hubris/seeing who's actually dominating that isn't our Queen.

I'll vote Annie next round though.

Done and done.

Interestingly enough, looking at GAF, there seems to be a bit of an overlap between Eliza and Annie fans. GAF makes Team Bloody Stars proud.

Dude these are sick. You should take a shot at a Crona (Soul Eater) color alt. Half because deeper shades of purple into black (blood) is awesome and half because everytime I think of Eliza's fighting style, I think of Crona + Maka + Soul('s piano power). :lol

We're distributing all the digital items through the Humble Bundle store. We'll also be collecting credits names, T-shirt sizes and shipping addresses there.

When new tracks are added, we'll update the file and make an announcement so you can go download it again.

The digital art compendium will work the same way - when we have new character frame dumps and art to add, we'll release a new version of the compendium.

We intended to have the first batch out with this stuff, but the interns had some things they wanted to try out, so we figured it was best to just wait and make them as good as possible.

I'm still hoping someone can do a Gloria from DMC4 palette.

Man, I'd love to intern for you lot. Glad to hear you found some solid workers. :P

How on earth do you even get to intern for something like this? Send out an email and hope the folks you are applying to have a reason to give you a shot?

Eliza would totally fit the incoming new casino stage, but if by some unfortunate turn of events Beowulf and Scythana don't make it, that brofist pic above could turn into a cameo in that new rooftop stage or something.

Also, the guy said "I've been hearing a lot of things from other departments... did you mention this on Twitter or something?"

Sounds like some of our fans took it upon themselves to complain to Paypal. Not sure if that helped or not, but definitely appreciate the support. And good to know that I can count on our awesome community to nuke our contact's Inbox should it never come to that. :)

Great to hear! Congrats! Though, I'm disappointed it even came to that. I was appalled by some of the comments on shoryuken.com and eventhubs.com.

To be clear, I don't think there's any actual connection between Paypal's stuff and the jackholes saying they would ask for refunds because they're unhappy with the vote.

I think it was just a timing coincidence.

Gotcha. Well, regardless, I'm glad it worked out. And hopefully Paypal or whatever won't actually let them pull their payments... I always thought that they needed a semi-legitimate reason to do that.

Sorry you had to deal with it in any case. You would figure big companies which move around billions of dollars a year would be more used to this kind of stuff.

I'm really of the opinion that Eliza is the best design in Skullgirls. It's very simple with a safe-ish color pallette but something about her is very appealing. I'm blaming it on the oversized Ankh.
