Spicy Horse Games, makers of “Alice: Madness Returns,” “BigHead BASH,” and
“American McGee’s Grimm” announced today that “Akaneiro: Demon Hunters” is now available for play via SpicyWorld and Kongregate for Mac and PC.
Based on the Little Red Riding Hood story combined with Japanese folklore and myth, and illustrated in Spicy Horse’s unique dark fantasy style, “Akaneiro: Demon Hunters” is an action-RPG that lets players hunt legendary monsters in Edo-era Japan.
Akaneiro launches with 20 maps of content with more options on the
way, including Steam integration. If the now-running Kickstarter is fully
funded, Linux and mobile versions and additional systems including co-op
gameplay and equipment crafting will be arriving in the near-future. To check

The game is free to download and play, with a $20 “unlock all maps” one time
purchase option for those who’d like to get all the content in one shot as well
as various options purchasable with the in-game currency, karma, for those
planning to buy things piecemeal.
