Watch American McGee's Gritty Take On Red Riding Hood In Action With Akaneiro

Spicy Horse, the developers behind Alice: Madness Returns, have released a first gameplay look at the action-RPG Akaneiro: Demon Hunter.

In much the same way that Spicy Horse took the tale of Alice in Wonderland and turned it into a dark fantasy where Alice brandished a large butcher knife for the majority of the game, Akaneiro is a more twisted vision of a different fairy tale.

In the video showing off an alpha build of the game above, you'll see a mixture of references to Red Riding Hood, as well as historical Japanese influences that set the tone of danger as players face off against the main threat of yokai.

I'll throw money at them because they did Alice: Madness Returns (IMHO the best reimagining of the Alice in Wonderland concept in living memory).

If I get a fun Diablo-style game in the bargain, all the better.
