American McGee's Akaneiro: Demon Hunters


We mentioned a while back that American McGee's Shanghai-based studio, Spicy Horse, was developing an ARPG with an odd theme. That theme is Japanese feudalism and the tale of Red Riding Hood. If you're not sure how those two concepts merge, then you can see in a video below for Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, which pitches McGee and chum's proposal to the all-funding eye of Kickstarter. Given that the game is free-to-play the rewards for this are based in in-game stuff, right through to a game-themed tablet. They want $200k, which doesn't seem too outlandish.

So yea, not a bad pitch I suppose. And the game looks rather attractive. I've not had a go on the beta, but that looks like a surefire way to figure out if Spicy Horse's claims about "real ARPG meat" are true, or not.
