Autumn Games and Reverge Labs to Unleash Skullgirls in 2011; Additional Details to be Revealed at GDC

Los Angeles – Feb. 3, 2011 – Prepare for the fight of your life! Autumn Games, a premier publisher of interactive entertainment, is working with game developer Reverge Labs to develop Skullgirls, a new fast-paced 2D fighting game that puts players in control of fierce female warriors in an extraordinary Dark Deco world. The team is led by renowned fighting game champion Mike “Mike Z” Zaimont and artist Alex Ahad, whose work has appeared in many publications, including Scott Pilgrim and Lava Punch. Using advanced graphical technology never before achieved in a game of its type, Skullgirls is currently in development for a 2011 release on high-definition home consoles.

“We believe that Skullgirls has the chops to be the next big 2D fighter – it has amazing art, tight gameplay, and a rich and deep backstory,” said Jason Donnell, president and COO, Autumn Games. “Working with the talented group at Reverge Labs is an added bonus, particularly with Mike Z’s expertise in the competitive games arena and Alex Ahad’s phenomenal art style. Together we’re delivering a challenging and competitive – and really fun – game, wrapped in the convenience and easy expandability of DLC on the two leading gaming services.”

“We’re aiming to create a new take on fighting games, drawing on our own experience as competitive gamers to combine the best elements of classic fighters into something with intense action, an engaging story and the most advanced 2D fighting engine ever created,” said Richard Wyckoff, CEO, Reverge Labs. “Autumn Games is quickly making a name for itself in the industry as a publisher of fresh and exciting games and a true partner to independent game developers, and they were the ideal choice for us to partner with on Skullgirls.”

I think it's good IMO. But the combo system feels horrible to me. I just can't imagine that burst thing to evade infinites. As lolmechy said in MI, looks like they're lazy with the combo system and they want to go for the easy way to implement it.

Hah!  I was wondering if I was ever going to see this again.  An old housemate of mine worked on the sprites for the black-haired chick in OP.

EDIT: So it makes infinite combos a gameplay mechanic..?  That's a unique way to not betatest a game.
If you're hosting your stuff on 4Shared, you might as well not release it at all.

I like that they have infinite detection that doesn't stop the infinite, it just makes you aware that it's happening.

The sprites and graphics look pretty good, but the game itself looks quite boring and not very enjoyable.  Who knows just yet....

I'll play it just for the fact of the art being so damn good, not like it'll be the absolute worst fighter I ever played.

For a game in development, it doesn't look THAT bad really.

It's been in development for like, ten years.
The artist/designer basically jumped in with no idea how to make a game and hired people who didn't know either.
