Tablety Information!

Greetings backers,

This is just a quick update to say we're busily creating the tablet version of Akaneiro, and we can't wait to send you a copy!

Currently the tablet version of the game is in Alpha stage, which means we have all basic functionality working with our internal server. While we are still creating a specialized experience for touch screen, the team has just finished optimizing the maps. Attached is a short video of our concept artist Joey Zeng playing through the first mission.

There are still a lot of kinks to work out, but we plan to hit our first Beta milestone in October meaning the game can connect to the live server. Once we have this build ready, we'll regularly supply a download link for the install file for you to play.

I will name him George, and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him...

Pets are here! 

Backer pets have arrived on the scene and your redemption codes are waiting for you in your BackerKit accounts. Once you've redeemed the code, go to Summoner Shimizu in town (the pet summoner) and you will find your new friend waiting for you.


Tablet progress, finally!

This is Muhammad. He's come to rescue Akaneiro on Android tablet. Prior to his arrival, work on the tablet version of Akaneiro had slowed to a crawl - mainly because the mobile engineer previously assigned to it was on extended personal leave. Circumstances had developed out of his (and beyond our) control. But things are now back on track!

As you can see, Muhammad has the tablet version up and running. His main focus these days is on optimizing the game so it'll be a smaller download and run smoothly at all times. That involves code and assets - Muhammad on code and our 3D and 2D art team on assets. Their combined efforts will continue until everything is humming beautifully and you're playing Akaneiro on your Android tablet!

Within a week we should have exact dates for delivery of upcoming milestones. Then we'll work to get early build APKs (Beta versions) to all you backers. We could send out a pre-Beta build right now, but your tablet might burst into flames trying to run it. We know it's been a long time coming, but this is definite progress and we think it should be smooth sailing from here on out!

From Shanghai with Muhammed,

There's a New Alice Kickstarter!

Greetings Hunters!

If you've not been following the drama here at Spicy Horse, it's been a whirl wind kind of week! Due to well, many things we found ourselves needing to cancel our OZombie campaign in favor of an Alice: Otherlands animated film short campaign. (Did you just feel the wind pass by as your head spun?)

The Alice campaign is rather short - only 20 days - as we've got a limited time frame in which to option the rights to make the animated shorts. So, we're here asking everyone who loves Alice as much as we to head on over and contribute. This one is short and sweet.

Early next week (after the producer returns from vacation) I will have an update for you all on your exclusive backer pets and player-created items. They are completed and waiting to go in game!

The Art of Akaneiro

Greetings Hunters!

I just received word from Dark Horse about the Art of Akaneiro art books. They are due to ship October 16! We should receive ours maybe a week before that and then we need to ship them all out. Expect to start receiving them in early November.

We will also receive keys for the digital art book that same week which will arrive in your BackerKit accounts.
