Minette, Molly, Stanley, and Feng for me, only voted Feng because my boyfriend couldn't donate in time, so no voting for him!

But i doubt Feng will make it... she doesn't seem as popular as the others, if i hadn't voted for Feng i probably would've used my 4th vote for Aeon or Umbrella.

Still have yet to receive my email to vote on the characters. This is starting to piss me off a little.

I also read that Juju should be available to vote on for the fifth character poll because they should hopefully have the potential legal issue resolved by then.

@ZeroSuitify

I had the same issue. Search through your email for indiegogo@labzerogames.com. It might be either in the Spam folder or in the Trash folder. Good luck!

Gimme that Roxie/Valentine rushdown with Molly support, please.

#12
HooliganComboFTW said on April 1, 2013 at 3:49 p.m.

It begins

Voted

Isaac (time travel gameplay looks fun + his aesthetic and inspirations is just too good)

Annie (Sol Badguy personality + Jojo stuff easily claimed a spot)

Umbrella (Important character of the plot + May inspirations)

Marie (game could use another projectile character + she is a necromancer which appeases me)

#13
meowmeowkittenz said on April 1, 2013 at 3:53 p.m.

Vote Beowulf! :D

#20
Jmonster129 said on April 1, 2013 at 4:23 p.m.

I hope Stanley wins!

My votes are going to Stanley, Panzerfaust, and 2 of either Beowulf, Illium, or Scythana

Maybe hubrecht

#21
Cammystrike said on April 1, 2013 at 4:25 p.m.

Voted for
Eliza (Her design is just too sick)
Scythana (I play a big body team in marvel, and she's a huge bit@h)
Molly (This game is missing mech suits)
Brain Drain (Just hoping for finger lasers and footdives)

#22
liddell1988 said on April 1, 2013 at 4:32 p.m.

I didn't donate so I can't vote, but I'd say Aeon, Eliza and Annie :)

#23
Jmonster129 said on April 1, 2013 at 4:36 p.m.

I'm surprised no one has spoken of Ileum

I think her design is simple but her play style sounds interesting
Stretchy acid limbs that conceal drills and needles
Sounds monstrous and cool
And her story background sounds good too

I voted Stanley, Panzerfaust, ileum, and scythana

#24
Guybrush20X6 said on April 1, 2013 at 4:36 p.m.

My votes

Ileum (I like the contrast of her motherly personality and her terrifying powers)
Minette (I played TVC Roll)
Feng (My brother's choice)
Beowulf (Wanna know more about this guy)

#25
HMora76 said on April 1, 2013 at 4:51 p.m.

Unfortunately I can not vote, but if I had a choice it would go towards Brain Drain, Ileum, Panzerfaust, and Stanley.

#26
NDRL said on April 1, 2013 at 4:55 p.m.

y'all better vote for my waifu, or else

#27
lvk96 said on April 1, 2013 at 5:01 p.m.

Go Minette and Isaac!

#28
Jiggeh said on April 1, 2013 at 5:02 p.m.

VOTE FENG!

#29
Unknown_Unknown said on April 1, 2013 at 5:13 p.m.

I voted

Black Dhalia: because characters with guns in a fighting game is so dirty but pragmatic... and I love it. also because I love characters with faceless masks and her inspiration is B.B. Hood and Cable, two of my faves.

Annie: The little girl who's not really a little girl sounds cool, Sol Badguy is dope and that Bunny is BAWS. Plus her backstory.

Panzerfaust: He has a frickin tank on his arm.

Isaac: For character design and his mechanics are too cool.

#30
KINGodfather said on April 1, 2013 at 5:16 p.m.

Voted Dick Violet, Molly, Samson, Isaac. That's all I want.

#31
Draga said on April 1, 2013 at 5:18 p.m.

Isaac, Stanley, Hubrecht and Panzerfaust were my picks.

#32
KataM said on April 1, 2013 at 5:30 p.m.

I like so many of them. Hope at least Minette or Molly make in.

#33
Vandal_Vortex said on April 1, 2013 at 5:37 p.m.

I can't vote but I would definitely pick Scythana, Panzerfaust, Samson and Yu-wan, all of those fit my playstyle while also looking beast.

#34
irondragon said on April 1, 2013 at 5:47 p.m.

#17: The character isn't inspired by Kanji, in fact, in the descrip it even says "Not Kanji(P4U)" LOL. And he's mostly inspired by wrestlers like Tizoc and R. Mika.

I can't vote but if I did it'd be for Regina, Brain Drain, and Isaac. Regina just sounds too good to not want her in. Half screen instant startup sword normals a la Hibiki? YES PLEASE. Strider and Ruby Heart animals to go along with it? PLEASE GIMME ;_;.

#35
paralyzing said on April 1, 2013 at 5:50 p.m.

Personally just want Feng to make it as DLC

#36
Novax99 said on April 1, 2013 at 5:58 p.m.

Aeon, Isaac, Feng, Stanley
these are mine hoping one of em makes it.

Stop being such a party pooper :P Let a man dream.

#38
Squallixer said on April 1, 2013 at 6:07 p.m.

YES! So much love for Minnette, Feng, and Molly on this post! My fourth vote went to Taliesin because with him, Big Band and Squigly, I could have an all musical team. I am also looking forward to seeing what Robo-Fortune will play like, that'll be hilarious I'm sure.

#39
AlgeKevin said on April 1, 2013 at 6:39 p.m.

"Here is what each round will look like:
- Round 1: 31 characters, 4 votes
- Round 2: 16 characters, 3 votes
- Round 3: 8 characters, 2 votes
- Round 4: 4 characters, 1 vote"

Straight from the e-mail.

I'm surprised so many people are voting for Umbrella haha, and even Annie got mentioned. To each their own.

Feng, Yu-Wan, Aeon and Venus for me. I figured Isaac and Stanley would already be getting tons of votes so I shifted towards others that I really wanted. More people should vote Feng and Yu-Wan. :(

Snow said on April 1, 2013 at 7:09 p.m.

Beowulf seems fun as a grappler who is very focused on spacing thanks to his chair. I imagine he can launch quite a few unique attacks with it, and some of his moves will change depending on if he has his chair in hand or not. This plus his somewhat "slender" frame make me think we might get a speedy grappler or at least a few natural chain grab combos. That said I can see him being very fun to play.

Isaac is an interesting one. While I'm not too sold on his gimmick as we've seen it thus far, the phasing in and out of time while converting supers to specials later on make Isaac very mindgame and planning heavy. Using him I can see you'll need to think like a chess player to be successful, always thinking ahead. This could be quite fun, however it could also be a very large entry barrier for newer players.

Stanley really appeals to me as a toolbox type character from his description. He has boxing for CQC as well as super science for long range. This, plus the "laser skates", burrowing, and jetpack ideas make me think Stanley could fill the roll of a much needed mid-range character with great movement options who can switch between zoning and rushdown as needed. Not to mention his themes could generate some fun looking attacks.

Venus is my last pick. From what I've read about her my brain has put it together that she would play like a fusion of Wesker and Dormammu with a paint coat of Venom (for some reason). Basically able to do some ranged mix-ups, followed by a quick teleport to get in close. Her "mouth portals" sound like a very interesting theme to me that I can see the team really tapping into their full potential. Of course it might just be because I absolutely love cosmic space horrors...

No matter who you vote for though, please give it a lot of gameplay consideration to help keep Skullgirls fresh, interesting, and varied.

/my two cents

No_Surrender said on April 1, 2013 at 7:50 p.m.

Ultimately I voted for Panzerfaust, Black Dahlia, Stanley, and Issac. Wish I could vote for at least 2 more (Brain Drain and Aeon). So many awesome character concepts.

#42
Gailim said on April 1, 2013 at 7:54 p.m.

Minette-Isaac-Stanley-Adam

#43
Batmang said on April 1, 2013 at 8:13 p.m.

umbrella pls shes so cute!!!

#50
PutridBeing said on April 1, 2013 at 10:46 p.m.

I voted Black Dahlia, Taliesin, Eliza and Aeon myself.

Black Dahlia just plain looks cool. The other three I picked because they all have unique quirks in the gameplay department.

#51
gaston said on April 1, 2013 at 10:46 p.m.

Voted purely based on who I want to see in the game:
+Panzerfaust (hope he has Clark's Autoguard command grab from KoF13);
+Beowulf (love the chair but I love more the idea that MikeZ can make Tizoc a viable-competitive character)
+Isaac (just love his character design and it seems like Mike has put in A LOT of thought regarding his mechanics)
+Andy (he probably won't make the cut but I love me my Dudley/Akihiko rushdown-mixup characters)

#52
Speakertag said on April 2, 2013 at 3:06 a.m.

No one loves Hubrecht. That lovable teddy bear gets my vote. With Panzerfaust, Stanley and Isaac. Voted yesterday.

#53
KatzuyaSagara said on April 2, 2013 at 6:03 a.m.

I can't vote...
But I would vote for Taliesin, Brian Drian, Adam and Beowulf...

#54
KINGodfather said on April 2, 2013 at 6:56 a.m.

It seems, from these comments, that Isaac should be in the next DLC. We'll see, I guess.

#55
BarrelRoller said on April 2, 2013 at 8:14 a.m.

I don't even own Skullgirls, but I gotta say, Hubrecht looks awesome~

#56
JDdelphin said on April 2, 2013 at 8:49 a.m.

Yeah, I have to say- if some of these characters were in the game from the start (or instead of a few that were on the roster to begin with) I might have picked up the game. -and I'll totally get it myself if enough characters that interest me are put into it. Very pleased

#57
Kamehamehadouken said on April 2, 2013 at 9:22 a.m.

Andy looks hilariously awesome.

#58
Kawainic said on April 2, 2013 at 9:24 a.m.

I freaking want UMBRELLA !!!

#59
PijamaLlama said on April 2, 2013 at 10:43 a.m.

I'm rather undecided, but I'm definitely voting for Hubrecht. If you help me out on this then we're bros for life

#60
Atemu69 said on April 2, 2013 at 5:09 p.m.

Eliza please. We need more Egyptian-themed characters in fighting games. And she just looks hella sick in general.

#61
J_Talbain said on April 2, 2013 at 5:47 p.m.

I voted only for scythana and stanley they are the only characters I want.

#62
Gemakai said on April 2, 2013 at 8:45 p.m.

Voted for Minette, Molly, Panzerfaust, and Feng myself.

I'm actually really surprised Feng is getting as much support as she is.

#63
feralwolf72 said on April 3, 2013 at 9:47 a.m.

annie, stanley, beowulf, molly
