Akaneiro - Launched
 
Amercian McGee's Akaneiro has launched according to Bluesnews, though you still have three days to plonk down some money for the Kickstarter, if financing already-released F2P games is your thing:

January 31 2013. Shanghai. Spicy Horse Games, makers of "Alice: Madness Returns," "BigHead BASH," and "American McGee's Grimm" announced today that "Akaneiro: Demon Hunters" is now available for play via SpicyWorld and Kongregate for Mac and PC.
Based on the Little Red Riding Hood story combined with Japanese folklore and myth, and illustrated in Spicy Horse's unique dark fantasy style, "Akaneiro: Demon Hunters" is an action-RPG that lets players hunt legendary monsters in Edo-era Japan.

Akaneiro launches with 20 maps of content with more options on the way, including Steam integration. If the now-running Kickstarter is fully funded, Linux and mobile versions and additional systems including co-op gameplay and equipment crafting will be arriving in the near-future. To check out the Kickstarter plans and reward tiers, please visit: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/…-demon-hunters

The game is free to download and play, with a $20 "unlock all maps" one time purchase option for those who'd like to get all the content in one shot as well as various options purchasable with the in-game currency, karma, for those planning to buy things piecemeal.

To play Akaneiro now, players need only visit the official site.
More information.

They launched the game for which they're running an as yet unfunded(!) Kickstarter with 36 hours to go. Who the heck is going to pledge to an already released game? That is the weirdest decision I've seen by a game company yet this year.

I've already said that the game feels like rip off. Also linked to a red r. hood vs mobs youtube video made by Monty Oum.

From American McGee, this is a huge disappointment. And I'll not pledge.
I mean… Kickstarting a MMO… I can only wish them good luck with it.

I downloaded it yesterday and played for about 15 min. It's ok, but I just don't see the value added for this game. There are simply too many other games out there with the same premise. I don't see how this will be successful…
