Sang Woo Park, CEO of SouthPAW Games was asked about Skul and this is what he had to say:

“Skul is no ordinary skeleton, and we can’t wait to share him with the world, […] We’ll be actively collaborating with our community throughout Early Access to utilize their valued feedback as we reveal new content including new levels and bosses, additional playable characters, and more.”

Skul tells the tale of a diminutive, yet powerful skeleton that goes on a quest to save his King from captivity. In his path stands the dastardly Caerleon Empire and a famed group of Adventurers who would like nothing more than to wipe out Skul and his Demon brethren once and for all. But Skul has something special up his sleeve, the ability to transform into an array of different characters by changing his skull. Each character has its own unique attack combos and abilities, which provides dynamic gameplay and tons of replay value.

The Early Access version will support English, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and German, with additional languages to be available at full release.
