"Akaneiro is complete; but Spicy Horse still need funding? How much and why? And how long?!"

Recently the group has been neglected and I promise that I will definitely update later if possible and throughout the oncoming weeks. This week we have a lot of topics to get through! Including the Steam Greenlight, the Akaneiro fund and the closed and open BETA!

So recently, Akaneiro has been greenlit on Steam, which means the Steam community have shown a large interest in Akaneiro, and that Akaneiro is reaching out to Spicy Horse to make it available on their site. If you don't know what Steam is (which you should!), it is a site run by Valve Corporation, who created games such as Portal, Left 4 Dead, Half Life and Team Fortress. It is a host for hundreds of games, including Alice, which you can buy and download to play, along with a few free-to-play games as well. See Akaneiro on Steam here!

Secondly, we'd like to announce that the Akaneiro Kickstarter only has 8 Hours to reach its final goal. The Akaneiro kickstarter has reached a massive $195,452 out of $200,000 and only has a final 8 hours to reach the goal! If you would like to donate, please donate here! If you miss this, you're obviously being silly!

There are also several Alice Tiers for any fans of American McGee's Alice and Madness Returns, including several Autographed lithographs, Authographed Cardguards and Alice figures, Authographed Femme Fetale Alice Statues, Autographed Phantom City Posters and Autographed XBOX360 Editions of Alice: Madness Returns! Don't pass this offer down, because you've already missed Autographed Teapot Cannon Teapots, The Signed Japanese Art Book of Alice and several other tiers! If you've already donated, you have a place in both AkaneiroDemonHunters heart and SpicyHorseOfficial's!

Now, you're wondering why it needs funding? The game is complete, and BETA is even open, but frankly American wants the funding purely to improve the game so that it can be a better experience of artistic endeavours and beautiful game-play for everyone!

The game could seriously use some help on kickstarter:( is there any activity here?
Ghostdoe Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Indeed there is! I've been on hiatus, though, but we could always use more Staff! If you want maybe you could, but that's a little out-of-the-blue, but we accept almost anyone as Admin! We always need help with the group :)

I would love to do that! However, I don't know how I'll be with my free time. But I'd like to try, of course^^
Ghostdoe Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It would be fine, we're quite a slow group, anyway :)

What is this game about? It looks quite interesting.
Ghostdoe Aug 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Not much has been confirmed yet but it appears to be about a Japanese Little Red Riding Hood who, as the title would state, hunts "demons". These appear to take the form of wolves.

Spicy Horse did release a concept art video: [link] - On Youtube
