Developer Ska Studios
, the fiendish minds behind The Dishwasher
games, have revealed a new character for their upcoming XBLA title, Charlie Murder
The new character, named Kelly Skitten (or Skelekitten to her friends), is the band's manager. She also dabbles with the horn section and occasionally provides back-up vocals. Don't think she's a pushover though, as the band's song about her claims, she's “Pretty, Crass and Mean”.
We also get a glimpse at the development of the character, including the apparent decision for her not to be half-naked.
Originally essentially a reskin of Charlie, as Kelly's role in the game has developed, she has become a unique playable character with new skills and abilities. She acts as the hypnotist of the group - known as a Mesmer - and can force enemies to hurt themselves with the 'Iron Maiden' ability or cast a spell twice in quick succession with 'Echo'.Charlie Murder
