Skullgirls puts players in control of eight female warriors in an extraordinary "Dark Deco" world, where they battle for control of a mysterious artifact known as the Skull Heart. Legend says it has the power to grant a woman's wish, but those judged impure will have their wish twisted and be transformed into the new Skullgirl! The Skullgirls team is led by renowned fighting game champion Mike "Mike Z" Zaimont and artist Alex "o_8" Ahad, whose work has been featured in many publications, including Lava Punch and Girls of Gaming.
