Spicy Horse Games, the creative force behind Alice: Madness Returns, BigHead BASH, and American McGee’s Grim announced today the launch of the Open Beta for Akaneiro: Demon Hunters.
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.
The open beta will include new developments such as advanced character training, weapon improvements, and the still-under-development Shivering Pines, which brings a new environment style to the game along with a new tribe of imps wielding frost magic.
To play, prospective hunters need only visit the official Akaneiro website and click the Open Beta button to sign up. Open Beta will run until January 16th and will consist of various stress tests designed to ensure the servers and infrastructure are ready for the launch of the game.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
