Developer Spicy Horse Games has sent word that upcoming free-to-play Akaneiro: Demon Hunters has been selected in the latest group of successful Steam Greenlight games, which enables it to be sold on Steam and access to complete Steamworks support. In the action-roleplaying game Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, players will adventure and hunt monsters in a world that's a combination between Japanese folklore and the Little Red Riding Hood narrative.

Once on Steam, the game will support both installation on Windows PC and Mac with possible Linux support based on goals reached through its Kickstarter campaign. The developers have celebrated the game's Steam Greenlight status by adding another Kickstarter reward tier that will include the Valve-inspired Karakuri Gaben pet, which is pictured below.

Demon-Hunting Action RPG arriving on Steam for Macs and PCs

January 15, 2013. Shanghai. Spicy Horse Games, makers of "Alice: Madness Returns," "BigHead BASH," and "American McGee's Grimm" announced today that "Akaneiro: Demon Hunters" had been selected in the latest round of Steam Greenlight for inclusion on Steam.

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 Steam version of the game will include Mac and PC versions and, if the now-running Kickstarter hits its stretch goals, a Linux version will also be available.

In celebration of the game's arrival on Steam, the Spicy Horse team has added a spirit pet known as Karakuri Gaben, inspired by the legendary head of Valve Software, to its Kickstarter rewards. Players eager to have their own Karakuri Gaben need only pledge in the $30 or more reward tier and, should the Kickstarter be successful, they will be granted the pet as well as all previous reward tiers.

"Akaneiro: Demon Hunters" is currently in Open Beta, with an anticipated launch this month on Steam and for the web. Players looking to join the hunt need only visit the official site at http://www.angry-red.com and sign up.
