According to Kotaku, game designer American McGee and his company Spicy Horse Entertainment need more money to finish the development of their free-to-play action-role-playing game set in ancient Japan that combines role-playing and Japanese culture with a grim retelling of the Little Red Riding Hood fairytale. The game is called Akaneiro and McGee needs about $200,000 to finish development, according to this Kickstarter appeal.
"We desperately want the final form of Akaneiro to represent the great amount time and effort that's gone toward getting it this far," the Kickstarter appeal reads. "To finish what we've started and present Akaneiro to our players in a truly final state, we need to deliver our promised features to all target platforms. The problem is we're out of time and money to do so. That's where you come in."
As of this writing Spicy Horse has raised $11,444 of its $200,000 goal from 270 backers with 29 more days to go. If the Kickstarter campaign is successful, the game will be released for Windows, Mac OS X, Android and iOS tablets. The game will go into open beta this month for Web and PC platforms.
