American McGee’s next project, Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, has hit its Kickstarter goal of $200,000.

Akaneiro is a free-to-play action-RPG that casts Little Red Riding Hood and her buddies as demon hunters pledged to the professional demon hunting Order of Akane, who must hunt all the demons in a local village.

The Kickstarter campaign racked up over 2,600 backers, and managed to squeeze in another $4,000 past the goal.

The next step on developer Spicy Horse’s side is the delivery of campaign rewards, such as virtual items, like Karma.

“The development team will begin work on their planning and we’ll post info about delivery dates ASAP,” said American McGee on the Kickstarter page.

When MyGaming asked American McGee what the Kickstarter initiative was focusing on, McGee said that it was to “accelerate delivery of key features and platforms – like adding co-op multiplayer or bringing the game to Linux.”

McGee also said that the success of the Kickstarter campaign now allows for “the core development team [to be] focused on Akaneiro longer while they work to deliver the new platforms, devices and features outlined in the campaign.”

A beta of Akaneiro: Demon Hunters is currently free to play on the Spicy Horse website, with the game set to arrive on Steam after being Greenlit by the community.
