Cereal Killaz pits your favorite off-brand breakfast mascots against each other in a hyper fighting game that you never knew you wanted

I'd definitely main Toucan Slam

Picture this, you wake up one morning only to find Tony the Tiger and Cap'n Crunch duking it out in your kitchen to determine which cereal you'll be eating for breakfast. That may sound like something out of a fever dream, but it could soon be an actual fighting game.

Cereal Killaz is an indie fighting game currently on Indiegogo with a fundraising campaign looking to bring together all of the off-brand breakfast mascots in a parody-filled hyper fighter.

The development team led by Mikhail Dingle currently have two characters in the works with Terror T, a man transformed into a buff tiger, and McLucky, who uses his charms to trap the souls of his opponents.

It's described on the campaign page as a four-button fighter with light, medium, heavy and special attacks with a fast-paced flow similar to Marvel vs. Capcom except it's 1v1.

As for the campaign itself, the team is looking to raise $50,000 to produce a full demo build of Cereal Killaz with stretch goals planned to add more characters, stages and story modes.

There's already over a dozen more designs on their page which are all obvious references to other cereal mascots with the likes of Toucan Slam, Choc Von Cule, Lo-Cocoa, Commadant Crush and Sonnie 2 Shanks among other funny takes of this unique roster.

Prospective backers will need to contribute at least $12 to obtain an Early Access version of the fighting game or $25 to receive a full game reservation among other perks like a digital comic and soundtrack.

Currently, Cereal Killaz sits at $15,000 raised out of its $50,000 goal with 28 days left to go with a flexible goal option which'll allow the devs to keep the contributions and go forward with development even if they don't reach their ultimate goal.

With some of the designs appearing quite close to the originals, it's fair to be worried about the project facing legal issues in the future like Them's Fightin' Herds did which the team addresses in one of their recent updates.

You can take a look at the campaign video for Cereal Killaz below along with some pieces of art and screenshots of the early build. More information can be found on the game's Indiegogo page.
