Spicy Horse (simplified Chinese: 麻辣马; traditional Chinese: 麻辣馬; pinyin: Má là mǎ) is a Shanghai-based independent video game developer started by American McGee, Anthony Jacobson, and Adam Lang in 2007.
Spicy Horse employs more than 70 people at their studio in Zhabei District, Shanghai. The company's development process utilizes a "core team" methodology and 100% outsourced art asset production to conserve energy directed at the core competencies of game development. 
Spicy Horse spawned a childcompany, Spicy Pony, for creating digital mobile media games for the iPhone. Their first title, DexIQ was released in early December 2009. Their second was a Little Red Riding Hood adaption for the iPad called Akaneiro. Their next project was to be an adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, OZombie, financed by a Kickstarter campaign. The campaign was cancelled on July 14th, 2013 in order to focus on a series of Alice short films and due to lack of support for the OZombie project.
