The lights are on
The downloadable fighting game Skullgirls launched back in April 2012, but the developers aren't quite done with it. The indie studio behind the game is on a crowdsourcing mission to raise money for an additional character.
Lab Zero Games (formed by the team who created the game) are trying to raise $150,000 on Indiegogo to add Squigly to the character roster. Lab Zero says she's about 1/3 of the way complete, and that additional money (up to a projected $625,000) could help pay for new story modes, stages, and even possibly more characters. If Squigly is funded, she'll initially be available at no charge on all platforms (PC, PS3, Xbox 360), and then three months afterward will cost $5.
The team acknowledges in its Indiegogo page that $150,000 sounds like a lot of money, and they've provided a breakdown of how all the cash will be spent.
