American McGee latest fairytale mashup—in this case, a cocktail of Red Riding Hood infused with a feudal Japan flavor—is now playable on Steam through its Early Access program. With the free-to-play Akaneiro: Demon Hunters having undergone a successful Kickstarter campaign, it may seem weird to pay $10 for the privilege of playing the Steam beta, but Spicy Horse swears you'll get some cool stuff out of this deal.
