American McGee Confirms Unreal Engine 3 'Twisted Tale' Project
Spicy Horse co-founder American McGee has confirmed that his Chinese-based studio has a second game in development in addition to the (pictured) episodic American McGee's Grimm
Though relatively low-profile thus far, the designer has only revealed that the early in production game is a “[Unreal Engine 3] based, big publisher, multi-platform, twisted tale project”.
As part of a post on his official weblog
, McGee reveals that the Grimm
project, being produced for online game subscription service GameTap, is at "the half-way point", commenting: "we’re 12 episodes in, with another 12 to go."
He then goes on to reveal basic details on the next project, which is Unreal Engine 3-based and therefore presumably destined for next-gen consoles including Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 - though platforms are unconfirmed at this time.
McGee, who created American McGee's Alice
while at Electronic Arts and whom Gamasutra recently talked to
about his plans for Grimm
ends the call for developers to work on this new franchise by noting that "...an official announcement will come when the time is right".
