FIGHT! zine Kickstarter launches this week!

Hey guys! I started the FIGHT! zine project back in 2013 and I am finally ready to launch the Kickstarter campaign to get this zine made. I was really ill for a majority of 2014 and it pushed the book onto the back burner while I dealt with other stuff.

For those of you who don’t know what the project is, FIGHT! is a zine which invites artists to create an original female fighting game character. The zine is curated by me, (Jenn Woodall). Each artist is assigned a page of a spread with a direction to orient their character towards, and the rest is up to them! So each spread of the zine is a versus match between 2 amazing female fighters. I am incredibly excited about this project as it is basically everything I love put into a zine. The artist line-up is really amazing, including the talents of:

Sam Bosma, Ze Burnay, Kali Ciesemier, Madeleine Flores, Andrea Kalfas, Guillaume Singelin, Stefie Zohrer, Kat Verhoeven, Stefan Tosheff, Patrick Carson Sparrow, Jenn Woodall, Trevor Henderson, Annie Stoll, Kevin Stanton, Schnekk, Kristen Acampora, Abby Boeh, Caitlin Rose Boyle, Alan Brown, Jenny Zych, Rachel Kahn, Baptiste Pagani, Kyle Fewell, Babs Tarr, Julian Callos, Jeanne D’Angelo, Jimmy Giegerich, Joanna Krotka, Dilraj Mann, Ralph Niese, John Lang, Paulina Ganucheau, Jordan Rosenberg, Valentin Seiche and Mathilde Kitteh!

The zine will be available as a reward for backing the Kickstarter campaign or you can pick up a copy from TCAF this May! This volume is titled ROUND 1 which will be followed by ROUND 2 and FINAL ROUND.

Thank you to all the artists for their fantastic contributions and their support! And thanks to everyone who is excited for this project and has gotten the word out!

Bastien Vives, Michael Balak and Michael Sanlaville have created Last Fight, a 3D indie arcade fighting video-game created for PC and consoles, based on their Last Man comic series (the first book releases from First Second in English this month). Influenced by games such as Capcom’s Power Stone and Smash Bros, Last Fight will feature a roster of 10 characters from the comic, with up to four able to fight at any one time. I really like the look of it, especially how the art style mirrors the comics so closely, and it looks pretty accessible too, which makes me want to give it a whirl once it’s out. You can view a teaser trailer, and more details, for it here.

Beast’s Fury is a beautiful 2D fighting game inspired by Skullgirls and Street Fighter with anthropomorphic characters and some fantastic hand drawn animation.

This build is still VERY early in development, so the fighting systems are a little basic at the moment, but the real allure of Beast’s Fury is it’s aesthetics, with smooth hand drawn animations, interesting characters, and awesome soundtrack.  The full game will not only involve action, but also feature engaging story lines, conveyed through some beautiful hand drawn cut scenes.

Beast’s Fury will feature a selection of interesting animal themed characters, such as a cyber-raptor and a boxing horse, while the Pre-Alpha Demo lets you play as a shark in a suit and a cat man.  

The character animation is a painstaking process but having successfully completed a Kickstarter campaign, development has now been able to kick up a gear so we can look forward to be seeing more of this gorgeous 2D fighter in the future.  Beautifully animated fists of furry.
