Well....

I didn't find it amusing or really that enjoyable. There is a slight amount of completion satisfaction when you are making everything dark. But honestly it was pretty bad/boring.

I love this game! It's funny and very simple gameplay that you can hop in and play when you have nothing else to do. The art style is excellent and different. I like how they make it like a muppet play or something. This reminds me a lot of katamari (the style). I'm surprised how dark and twisted it is (especially in one scene where little kids' being hanged or impaled. Screenshots doesn't show the game any justice. You just have to play it to see by yourself.

I can't wait for upcoming episode. I also am a fan of Grimm's tales.

Bad Day LA was the same, might be the same engine. There was a workaround for it but stuffed if I can remember. I actually liked Bad Day LA by the way, it was fairly poor quality and the voice acting was beyond retarded, but I liked the environment and setting. It just appealed to me as an everyday shooter.

Work around? Just go into the options menu and select your desired resolution... Theres nothing that needs to be done.

Right, but Bad Day LA had set resolutions and you couldn't change them, had to use some outside trickery to force it to what you want. I haven't played Grimm yet but some of the previous comments led me to think it had the same 'problem' as Bad Day LA.

Clearly it doesn't, so goodie.

I could change resolution but didn't see options for AA or AF. Bad form.

I wanted to try it but it won't let me install it on another drive other then C: so I guess I won't be trying it. I do not install any of my games on C: on the OS and some programs hames go on my other drives.

Yeah I found that a little strange too. The installer just shows a progress bar and then disappears, leaving a shortcut on the desktop.

No start menu shortcuts, nothing in the game browser...
