Akaneiro: Demon Hunters meets funding goal

Spicy Horse's Akaneiro: Demon Hunters reached its Kickstarter funding goal this weekend, raising $204,680 of its $200,000 goal.

The success of the campaign means the studio can now devote its time to porting the action role-playing game to Android and iOS tablets and Linux, as well as implement co-op multiplayer, an equipment crafting system and improved community support.

Additional features that the development team will implement include: lockbox items and additional consumables, expanded weapon and armor varieties, additional Spirit Helper Pet varieties, leaderboards and a rank-based achievement system with rewards.

The game fell short of its $233,000 stretch goal, which would have given the game an Ouya version, new expansions and even more armor and weapons.

Akaneiro is out now and was also recently greenlit for Steam. It is free-to-play here.
