  • The OST for the game is a massive one: there isn't just one stage theme for each stage, there's one for each stage depending on the character you're playing. The composers managed to place small reflections and variations of each theme depending on the character you're playing that reflects that character's main theme, creating a massive OST for an indie fighting game.

The Indiegogo campaign

  • Up until the final week, the Indiegogo campaign was struggling to reach even the initial funding goal. Then the floodgates opened and pledges start to pour in until all the announced stretch goals were met and surpassed. The final amount raised from the Indiegogo campaign was a whopping $587,026, a full $27,026 beyond what the final announced stretch goal required.
