Both Squigly and Big Band are in the bag, and there's now funding for a 3rd character. Which character that is, you'll be able to vote on sometime later. Here's a page with profiles on all of the choices, it's fun to read even if you're not going to donate: [link]
Now there's two days left to fund the 3rd characters story mode and stage, which I'm pretty sure will happen at this rate. They've actually added a goal for a 4th community-voted character, which is much further away... but stranger things have happened in two days.
