Them's Figthin' Herds, the barnyard brawl fighter you never knew you wanted, is now available on Steam Early Access and Humble Bundle for $14.99.

The two-dimensional fighting game features a roster of all-female ungulates that pits six playable characters, such as a cow, reindeer, alpaca and unicorn, against each other in traditional fighting game fashion.

Originally a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic-based fighter, plans for what would become Them's Fightin' Herds would be redirected after Hasbro shot a cease and desist order developers' way. Though they'd have to change direction, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Producer Lauren Faust offered her services to the Mane6 team as they created all new characters.

Skullgirls owners on Steam get a 25% off coupon that expires in 2 weeks, as Herds uses the Skullgirls fighting engine, and the teams go back to their respective crowdfunding days.

While most of the game is fully ready, the Story Mode is still a few weeks off as unexpected bumps in the development road have led to setbacks. There are plans for future DLC characters, so you can expect the roster to grow with time.

Here are a few stills depicting game play as well as the 16-bit menu area. You'll find the game trailer after the jump.
