Skullgirls developers have been hard at work on new builds of the game to fix their publisher woes and also add a cool new feature to the popular fighting game. Skullgirls Encore will get a Typing of the Dead style minigame added to it as well when the game is released in 2014.
Additionally, Mike Z revealed an interesting addition to the updated version of their indie fighter that he has been working on in an effort to occupy his time while waiting for Lab Zero Games’ most recent issues to clear up. Dubbed The Typing of the Skullgirls Encore, this new mode turns every super into a typing mini-game to determine its damage; perfectly spelling the word or phrase will grant you 150% damage, finishing with errors provides no bonus or penalty, and failing drops the damage to 10%. As such, meter builds constantly and damage on everything else has been lowered tremendously to place more importance on those moves.
