Lab Zero Games to donate engine to Fighting is Magic if Skullgirls reaches $725,000

Lab Zero Games will give Mane6 a free Skullgirls engine license to use in Fighting is Magic if the Skullgirls IndieGoGo campaign reaches $725,000, Lab Zero Games' tweeted.

Hasbro killed the development of the My Little Pony fan-made fighting game in February and it still refuses to grant Mane6 permission to create a game based on the franchise.

The development team announced last month that Lauren Faust, the creator of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, is teaming up with them to help make the game a reality. To skirt the problem, Faust is creating new characters and a new setting for the game.

"It means that with Lauren's help, we are going to finish this game, but it will no longer be based on the MLP franchise," a post stated on the Mane6 website. "It will be all new characters in a new setting, while keeping the moves, mechanics, and style of the game we wanted to make from the start."

Mane6's Fighting is Magic was revealed as a finalist for inclusion in the EVO 2013 fighting game tournament earlier in the year.
