Sixth champion revealed and Greenlight campaign!

Hey everybody! It’s time to kick this thing into high gear, and we have just the Key Keeper to help. She’s the fastest and most furious in Fœnum and we can’t wait to get to working on her.

Fighting game music and you

  Fighting game music and you: a guide to all things dynamic. Hi there. My name is Stuart Ferguson, but you may remember me by my old alias; RC88.

The Big One

It took longer than we expected, but we have conquered the trademark system with our mighty battle-lawyers. Losses were heavy, the cost was high, but we’re finally ready to announce the big news. “Them’s Fightin’ Herds” will be crowdfunding through Indiegogo in less than one month. We’re aiming for a September 21st start date. We […]

Mane6, Inc.

Q: So!, It’s mid May now. What have you guys been doing?, Why the long silence? A: Well, that’s actually a pretty good example on why we don’t usually give out very specific dates: Stuff has a very constant tendency to go FUBAR when we do. We’ve been wrestling the procedures to get the legalese […]

2013: An ungulate Odyssey – 2014: Ungulates strike back

2013 – The year in review Has it really been one year since we started this project already? Well, technically it’s one year in February (or April), depending on when you start counting, but let’s pretend it has been one year for now, shall we? Back in February 2013, our first project, “Fighting is Magic”, […]

Just a small reminder

Hello everyone! Just a small reminder that we’re: a) not dead and b) still working on this. And that you can check out (or follow, if you want!) our twitter to catch small bite sized updates that don’t warrant a full article in this site! For example, this is a thing I was working on […]

Engine get and three short stories

You guys rock! Well, turns out it took us a whole two (or is it three?) days to get over the initial shock, surprise and excitement at Skullgirls’ Indiegogo campaign having reached the 725k mark (And beyond!), but we’re back with a (mostly text) update of what’s going on and what comes up next. But […]

As you might know already, the Skullgirls’ Indiegogo campaign is now in the final stretch, time and money wise. With a bit over 33 hours to go at the moment of this post, […]

Skullgirls engine FAQ + teaser

Hey everyone! We’re gonna go over some of the questions regarding the Skullgirls engine licensing drive that’s going on RIGHT NOW. Won’t this be a tonne more work? The bulk of the work (and as labzero can tell you) is going to be art. Concepts, poses, animating, stages, gui. Music, sounds, voices. All of that […]
