The thought of having 5-6 new characters actually really makes me want to play this game again. The original cast is nice, but it is WAY too small for a fighting game. I hope they get the additional funding for the 6th character, but I doubt it'll happen.

I think that at best we'll get the second mystery characters stage.

I challenge you to make Adam look like a badass.
Hear Hear!

That actually wouldnt be difficult. I could do that in a ten minute sketch.

I mean, I made Jar Jar look badass once. This is something I do.
Noh! Pic?

Hnnnnnnnggg all the characters are so cool, it's going to be really hard to pick three. Right now I'm leaning towards Umbrella, Annie and Feng.

Also, have we heard anything about Juju? I love her name and design but I haven't seen any info on gameplay or backstory.

Downloading Skullgirls right the fuck now, I'm super hyped and maybe I'll finally get good at a fighting game!

Writing up a post-campaign update right now, but thought I'd throw this out there...

Non-disclosure agreements with the powers that be prevent me from getting too specific, but in the last week one of our character development line items has evaporated. This means we’ve got an additional $40,000 to play with now.

Naturally we’ll be using this money to give the 2nd fan-selected Mysterious Character a stage and story mode.

Awesome!! I'm so glad all of this worked out so well for you guys, you all seriously deserve it.

It also just came to me that this is the first and probably only kickstarter campaign I've participated in.

I'm not sure what evaporated means in this context, seems like the takeaway is good news though!

Now we can end the side discussion about scrapping Robo-Fortune's story mode, we'll get our cake and eat it too damn it!

Snailmail contracts are being passed now to handle her legal issues.
Overnight that ish, UltraDavid!

I'm guessing even if she doesn't get voted, a successful agreement will still allow Alex to keep her in the Skull Girls universe.
Therefore, a win-win for me.

You know, it's very easy to guess at what the "evaporated" item is if you're looking at the cost breakdown, and extending it out to 4 characters.

Speculation Time!

$48,000: Staff Salaries - 8 people for 10 weeks

$30,000: Animation and Clean-up Contracting

$4,000: Voice recording

$2,000: Hit-box Contracting

$5,000: Audio Implementation Contracting

$20,000: QA Testing

$10,000: 1st Party Certification

$10,500: IndieGoGo and Payment Processing Fees

$20,500: Manufacturing and Shipping Physical Rewards

This is what we have a breakdown of. I want to say that the two I've crossed out definitely can't go anywhere.

Alright, what's most likely to have been given some leeway, or maybe Marvelous stepped in and offered to pay the costs for something?

I'm thinking QA Testing, myself.

I'm imagining her holding the giant handset and it's making me smile.
I can see her holding a walkie talkie the size of egg carton and still not getting a clear signal.

Congratulations on the amazingly successful KS, btw. I'm glad you guys were able to catch fire and educate a little bit at the same time. Very cool

My best guess was that one of the reward tiers had a middle man that they were able to cut out in order to develop them. Doesn't seem to mesh when NDAs get involved though.

Maybe Microsoft refunded some of the money they've spent on testing? I can't imagine they'd suddenly waive whatever they plan to spend on testing in the future nor do I believe the testing fees themselves are going to get cheaper.

Cert. costs looks like it fits.

Fantastic news.

This means yet another Yamane track!
