If you enjoyed American McGee’s Alice: Madness Returns, then you might be interested to hear that American McGee’s studio, Spicy Horse, is currently working on a new game dubbed Akaneiro: Demon Hunters. Just like with Alice, Akaneiro appears to have taken Little Red Riding Hood and has given the character a darker twist, throwing the character into a Feudal Japan setting. Your character will be part of the Order of Akane, a group that has been charged with demon slaying. The game is expected to adopt the free-to-play model and will be playable on the PC, tablets and the web. Early screenshots of the game have suggested that it could adopt a similar game style to that of Diablo, Torchlight and other dungeon crawlers, but admittedly it does look good. No word on when we will be seeing the game’s release, but a beta is planned for later this year, so head on down to its website for the details.
