Skullgirls dev wants $150,000 in crowdfunding for new character:

Mike Zaimont and Peter Bartholow of Lab Zero Games recently unveiled plans during a Twitch.tv stream to crowdfund a new character for Skullgirls, Shoryuken reported. Zaimont and Bartholow’s goal is to raise $150,000 starting February 25 to develop the “Squigly” character, her story and stage, in addition to stretch goals for two other characters.

“I know that $150k sounds like a ton of money, and it’s only that cheap because we’re taking huge paycuts to try and make it happen at all,” Bartholow told Shoryuken. “A full cost breakdown will be provided so that people can see how their money will be spent.”

Once the Squigly character is completed, she will be available free for three months on all platforms, regardless if players have contributed to the developer’s crowdfunding efforts.
