Gamers the world over exude opinions and complaints about the games they love, and lament at the fact that developers hardly ever seem to hear them. Mike “Mike Z” Zaimont, Project Lead and Designer on Reverge Labs’ upcoming fighting game, Skullgirls, is just such a gamer. A long time lover and competitive player of fighting games, Mike Z has used his programming expertise and fighting engine in combination with the art and characters of Alex “o_8” Ahad, Creative Director on the game, to create the game he’s always wanted to play. Skullgirls is many things, but at it’s heart it’s what happens when a gamer takes his expertise and makes a game out of it. Of course, that could mean anything, that could mean making another Marvel vs. Capcom 2 just because that’s one of the games Mike Z loves, but instead Reverge Labs has taken it one step further and is implementing a myriad of conveniences and thoughtful design changes that fighting game enthusiasts such as myself have been clamoring for, unwilling to be complacent with the traditional fighting game design and features. Check out the Q&A after the jump and find yourself exclaiming “That’s amazing! Why hasn’t anyone done that yet?” all the way through the interview.

During this panel at Evo 2011 much was discussed including all of the characters, game mechanics and features, and we’ve gone through and picked up as much of the relevant info as possible provided below the jump and cut into neat, cheweable pieces. Let us know if you need more steak sauce with that:
Upcoming fighting game Skullgirls got some love at Evo 2011 recently and Reverge Labs has unveiled a new character, their fourth to date, Parasoul. Parasoul is a very large …
Skullgirls is looking to be an interesting 2-D fighting game coming out on XBLA. With eight characters and hand drawn art by Alex Ahad (of Scott Pilgrim fame), it shows off really smooth animation that feels like a cartoon fighting game. There are knives with happy smiles to hair capable of demonic abilities. It all looks incredible, yet weird. Be sure to keep a lookout for this title in the summer and to enjoy some new screenshots after the break.
