Spicy Horse originally intended Akaneiro to launch on Steam today, January 24, but only if it was approved in Greenlight's January round, which it was. Akaneiro has nine days left of its Kickstarter campaign and needs $95,000 to reach its goal and polish off the game.
"For Steam, integration and testing are taking longer than anticipated," McGee writes in a Kickstarter update. "We could be ready for launch by 7th of February, but because Chinese New Year starts on the 9th, we're forced to delay until the end of the month, meaning launch on or around the 28th of February. We're being extra cautious about launch timing to ensure a balanced and bug-free experience."
