Well this is an interesting turn of events…
OK first thing first, the indie fighting game Skullgirls, after much trouble that I won’t go into, is back on track. They are currently porting to Windows and Linux and are running a donation drive on Indiegogo to fund what will be an initially free DLC. The total amount raised will determine just how big the DLC will be and as of last night enough has been raised for two characters and their story mode and stages with a stretch goal for the third character still some way away.
So, there has been quite a break in service for the TWitU feature, but this week has been so big for fighting games that it needed to make a comeback for this special edition. This is a video heavy post on these big announcements and happenings so stay with me as we delve into the world of fighting games.
Another one of my “one to watch” posts, this time a small indie freeware title, but one that looks to be having more effort put into it per team member than any of this year’s AAA titles…and Modern Warfare 3.
You see, this is why I love PC Gaming, there is no way this could ever be done on a console, the whole idea of being an open platform means that just about anything can, and indeed will, be made by bedroom coders and small studios. There are people who make things because they want to, not because it pays their wages or the shareholders dividends, but I digress, the drawbacks of capitalism in what is an artistic industry are not what I am here to discuss. I am in fact here to tell you about Mane6’s upcoming game, My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic.
