Forgive me for asking a stupid question, but...

I've owned Skullgirls for about a week. Heard of it before, never dabbled much in it, bought it, played it, loved it, and now I'm hearing about Mike Z being a douche and losing the rights and now LZ is dead...?

What happened? I'm lost.

toxic work environment, treating employees like shit, leveraging his position to pressure the company into paying him out with a huge sum. 

the gaming industry's usual.

I probably should ask this in a separate thread, but what is it with the gaming industry and treating the workers like crap.

Not just in America, I heard similar stories happening in Japan.

I'm surprised an American asks this question. The answer is pure and simple, Capitalism.
Let me quote my former boss, he said this to one of my coworkers:
Quote
I can replace you with a click of the finger, I have over 30 resumes lined up here [in HR]. You go away now, you will replaced tomorrow. So what you're being overworked? so what you're getting underpaid? without us you would still be unemployed, so be grateful for what you have.

This is how those assholes think too, If it means more money in their pocket and they CAN get away with, why wouldn't they do it?

Ubisoft has been protecting multiple sexual predators with no consequences for years, they think they're some sort of superior being, treating people "below" them like garbage in every way.

This is not exclusive to the gaming industry, and isn't really a problem of Capitalism but society as a whole. This has existed for centuries, and will continue to exist for centuries more.

The game industry is exploitative because they have an endless supply of starry-eyes naive idiots fresh out of college who think they'll climb up the ladder and become the next Shigeru Miyamoto or Sid Meier. You see the same phenomenon in the animation or entertainment industry to differing degrees, businesses that target people with "dreams" have a lot more leeway in treating their employees like shit than a conventional, "boring" job would have.,

The game industry is exploitative because they're pieces of shit who want to keep their rich and powerful position at any human cost, don't shift the blame to people who want to follow their dreams, because its not their fault in any capacity.

Also, we're getting quite off topic, I know abuse has been a big thing in Skullgirls' development, but a discussion about the industry itself is already far enough, we could have a topic speficially about that.

This is very interesting.

I recall that there are still a bunch of characters from the Indiegogo campaign that did not get selected, especially Umbrella, since she happens to be a rather major plot character.

I wonder if the season pass characters will draw from that pool of characters, or will be never seen before characters?

So, long time ago, in 2016, I sent a PM to the Skullgirls official Facebook page about which characters they needed to make a canon story mode, and they answered:


It would make a lot of sense if the pass included Marie, Umbrella and Dahlia. The only one of those who wasn't very popular in their campaign was Umbrella, but I'm sure they can add her if they seek to make a big story mode.
