It’s (re-)official now! Chuck Osborn at PC Gamer has written the first preview of the new game we’ve been secretly developing for Gametap: “American McGee’s Grimm” (And apparently now it’s OK for me to talk about it.)
After (justifiably) taking me to task on Bad Day LA, Chuck expresses excitement at what will be a “spiritual sequel of sorts to Alice” and then dives into some previously unreleased details about the game. I’ll share a bit of the news with you here, and suggest you purchase a copy of PC Gamer if you want to learn more.
I’m really happy to be once again working on twisted fairy tales. And I’m especially excited about having R.J. Berg involved with the project. He was the Executive Producer on Alice and that project’s head writer. On Grimm he’s serving in the same role, which means you can expect more beautifully written story and dialog.
RJ and his wife recently came out to China for some work and some adventure. We took a trip down to Hangzhou and I posted some images from that trip on my Flickr.
At this point that’s all I can say about the project, but stay tuned for more information in the coming months.
