The Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn has wrapped up its funding campaign with US$473,884 in pledges, surpassing its required $450K on its final day, securing the continued development of a peculiar reboot of the terrible 1994 fighting game staring Basketball celebrity Shaquille O'Neal.
SHAQ FU IS HAPPENING! This is just the beginning. Now that the game is funded and will be seeing PC and console release it's time to start production. We'll soon be putting together a platform where our team (that's you!) will be able to contribute ideas and suggestions, as well as help us reflect on our own choices.
If you missed the details on this the first time around, here's the general concept:
There are two, and only two, similarities between our Shaq Fu, and the abomination that was born in the nineties: The name, and the starring character.

We are gamers, not executives. We know what’s good and we know what stinks. This isn’t about trying to make a quick buck, it’s about creating something that both we and Shaq can be proud of. We want to make a slick, fun, rock-solid game.

Most celebrity games take a well known face and build a crappy game around it, knowing it will sell. We want to build a game that would kick ass even without Shaq. As the main character, however, Shaq, really wants to be a part of this and we love that he’s onboard. He's going to have a huge involvement in this and he is not about to let the same mistake happen twice, and neither are we.
