In development by Spicy Horse, creators of Alice : Madness Returns, Akaneiro : Demon Hunters is an action role-playing game for PC. The world and art of Akaneiro is “inspired by Japanese themes and the Red Riding Hood tale.” Different from other Kickstarter campaigns, this product already exists. Why the Kickstarter then? To make the game bigger and better, basically. Another one of the reason for the Kickstarter is to obtain the funds to make Android/iOS tablet/phone versions. Akaneiro will be free-to-play with money coming in from cosmetic purchases players can make. The business model of Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, mentioned in a press release, is below.
