Them's Fightin' Herds started life as My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic, a fighting game created by My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fans and starring characters directly from the show. That project was shut down when Hasbro sent the developer, Mane6, a cease-and-desist order in February 2013 -- but it was reborn when Friendship is Magic producer Lauren Faust and Skullgirls studio Lab Zero Games hopped on board. Now, Them's Fightin' Herds is a serious fighting game starring a cast of original characters designed by Faust and running on Skullgirls' engine. This week, Mane6 launched a $436,000 Indiegogo campaign to fund 18 months of full-time development on Them's Fightin' Herds, and in two days it's raised more than $100,000. This time around, it looks like crowdfunding is magic.
