Akaneiro: Demon Hunters opens beta sign-ups, shows off gameplay

The action-RPG Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, from American McGee's dev house Spicy Horse, is edging closer to release, and developer Spicy Horse has opened beta sign-ups and released the first gameplay trailer. The game tells the story of Red Riding Hood, infused with elements of Edo-era Japanese folklore. For example, your story of Red Riding Hood probably didn't involve an order of feudal hunters searching for karma shards among dead demons.

You can register for the beta on the official site now. Check out the trailer below to see the first bits of the moody dungeon-crawler in action.
