Hey, let’s take a look at some indie fighters that are coming down the pipeline!
First up is a new alpha release video of Wolfire Games’ bunny beat ‘em up, Overgrowth. The team reached a big milestone recently and began working on the game’s combat engine. To celebrate, they’re throwing a Beard Drive to get fans to subscribe to their YouTube channel.
Skullgirls is an all-girl fighting game that’s the brainchild of indie artist Alex Ahad. The game has been around in some form or another since at least 2006, but things seem to be picking up these days. Mike “Mike Z” Zaimont, an ex-Pandemic employee and veteran of the fighting game scene, is handling the programming for the game, so hopefully it will end up being very competitive.

Finally, here’s an obscure one: Gomanna (also known as Don Quixote?) is a brutal fighting game by Park Pyoung Lyong that also features an all-girl cast. It sounds like it’s a big pain in the ass to run the demo (for some reason it involves installing a Korean instant messenger program), so the word is out on how good the game actually is, but hey, I really like the look of this short clip! Head over here for more information about Gomanna, including how to run the demo (lemme know if it’s fun!).
