Back in the summer of 2008, a game called American McGee's Grimm debuted on GameTap—an episodic action-adventure written by R. J. Berg, who also worked on American McGee's Alice. In the following one and a half year period, Grimm received 22 additional episodes. And now, it's on Steam Greenlight.
Like most stories, this starts with a girl. Rather, this starts with a boy chasing a girl — to Hong Kong. The boy wasn't a boy, but developer American McGee. And the girl?
GameTap has just launched the first chapter of the first volume of American McGee's Grimm, the twisted fairy tale adventure series from America's most similarly-named developer. The first episode is called "A Boy Learns What Fear Is", which in the context of twisted fairy tales gives me chills just thinking about it.
Once Upon A Time, American McGee decided to create an episodic game based on fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Beauty and the Beast with a dark twist.
