It Will Blow Your Mind To See How Much It Costs To Add ONE New Character To A Fighting Game

Lab Zero Games, the guys behind 2D fighting game Skullgirls, want to add a new character to the game's roster. To do this, they're going to set up an IndieGoGo on February 25. And ask for $150,000. (Dev)

Wow, if that's the case for all fighting games, I'm more than happy to pay 5-7 dollars for a character DLC in MK or Blazblue lol.

wow, if thats the case then i can sort of understand it, i mean you have to make a character with its set of moves and specs plus add the balance to it against the other rosters something has to be done about those to work with a new fighter on a scale

Or they could just put in all the characters without dlc. Or start making a new game.

And yet other indie guys who make MUGENS can add thousands of characters free of charge.
Because they do it for free. Companies hire people to do this. Artist, animators etc...

Know if mugen guys will work for free at capcom then that would cut cost.

If you can't tell the difference between Skullgirls and MUGENS, you should probably just shush.

Skullgirls features original characters, Art, animation and is tested. This all costs money, the idea that you think you should get characters that match the quality of Skullgirls for nothing is just silly.

The link definitely demonstrates the quality of "free".

Are you kidding me ? Almost no one even bother balancing out characters on Mugen , and even for the sprites it's usually just lifted and ripped from work previously done by others . Almost no one in the mugen scene create their characters and moveset from scratch ...
80% of them just use modified old models and sprites from the 90s IN 2013 !

While the dedication is appreciated , it's definitively amateur hour and irrelevant to the argument here

Means nothing, if the game is complete I buy it, if not I wont bother. "But the developers" you're supporting the publisher not the developers and because of it the game itself its actually a disposable diaper...
