Spicy Horse Games, the studio behind the upcoming action-RPG Akanerio: Demon Hunters, announced over the weekend that the closed beta phase has begun.

Sadly, only one thousand players are headed off to Edo-era Japan to engage in battle as a Demon Hunter, against the untold horrors based on Japanese folklore and mythology. The studio is reportedly only letting a small number in, initially, to help test server stability and game content. Once the Spicy Horse team gets cozy and comfortable with having just a thousand onboard, an additional five thousand players will be added to increase server load.

It appears from there the frequency of additional waves of testers will be increased as needed, with the eventual launch of Open Beta to come in the future. If you haven’t signed up for this decidedly dark beta, you can do so now by visiting the game’s official site.

    • Then this must be the only browser based rpg you’ve ever seen,
      Either that, or you’re completely blind.

      And please don’t come up with “my opinion” excuses, I can respect your opinion and all, but that doesn’t make it any less stupid.

      My point? Only the art style and smooth movement makes it better than most browser based games posted right here in this page’s top 10 browser based games.

      Your point? None.

  1. im in the beta, the game is browser based, sadly they aren’t putting us together yet, but in overall the game is way better than i expected 😀

  2. My My, aren’t you accomplished… Little “FIRST” person… Anyways…. The game looks interesting, I sense a lot of grinding though… Anyone else agree? No? …………
