Akaneiro: Demon Hunters Kickstarted

The Kickstarter for Akaneiro: Demon Hunters has concluded, just barely hitting the $200K funding goal for enhancing this action/RPG from American McGee and Spicy Horse Games. The game is currently available through the Akaneiro: Demon Hunters Website, but the kickstart will help enhance the game's support for co-op and other platforms such as Linux. Here's word from the announcement:

The $204,680 pledged means that the Spicy Horse team can speed development time and devote more resources to features like co-op gameplay, crafting, Linux support, and the much-anticipated iOS and Android versions of the action RPG.

"We spent most of the weekend on the Akaneiro launch and helping push the Kickstarter over the finish line, so we haven't had a chance to work out an exact roadmap yet, that's something we'll be looking at in the next few weeks" said American McGee, CEO of Spicy Horse Games.

"However, during the Kickstarter, we asked the players what they wanted and they decided: They want co-op and crafting now and Linux and tablet (iOS/Android) support as soon as possible. While we didn't make our stretch goal, we heard the 'don't forget us!' from Ouya supporters loud and clear."

McGee added, "Over the coming weeks, we'll be taking a look at what it takes to implement these features and get them out in a timely manner. We've also still got contributions coming in on the Paypal page, which may influence which features wind up where on the plan."

Read: We never even bothered figuring out if this is enough money to do these things. We just put up a number and hoped American McGee's name was enough to get this much money to American McGee.

Sadly, it was... This KS has been a fucking travesty, but hey, if foolish people want to support it, then go right ahead. :-shrug-:

Yeah, this was another example of (IMO) something that should have never been KS'd. The product was done, and this was for enhancements.

The fact that it was F2P with microtranactions, but then they ask people for money through a KS says wonders about the future of it...

Read: "Okay, the game's already out, but that doesn't mean that you have to stop giving us even more money!"
 
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.
