Default American McGee's Grimm

I don't think there's a thread about his upcoming project. American McGee's Grimm. After doing a bit of looking around and it's going to be developed by McGee's yet new studio, Spicy Horse Games, and will be using Unreal Engine 3 and will be 24-part episodic game series based upon Grimm's Fairy Tales. Grimm will be warped fairy-tale style like Alice. It'll be on Gametap (just like Sam and Max) however McGee said once they have done few episodes, they may consider alternative format (Xbox Live was mentioned) so maybe we'll see completed set of Grimm on PC in the future. Personally, I'm really excited.

Here's his blog, so you can check some artworks and what he has to say also there's an interview on Grimm at Gamespot.uk. He mentioned about Oz (sadly it's all gone) also a bit on live-action of Alice.

I love anything McGee.

Scrapland, Bad Day LA, Alice... All incredibly fun and characteristically unique games that I had nothing short of a ball playing through (yes, even Bad Day LA :P ).

Can't wait for it, the more the better.

Likely correct,Alice was a damn good game I still play from time to time (still have it installed.)

Wow, you liked Bad Day L.A.? I guess that makes...one person.

Alice and Scrapland were classics.
