GameTap Officially Announces McGee's  Grimm

GameTap Officially Announces McGee's Grimm

May 29, 2007 | By Brandon Boyer

Turner's GameTap service has officially announced it will be publishing Grimm, a 24 episode fractured fairy-tale action-adventure series from Alice and Bad Day LA creator American McGee, following an earlier report via McGee's weblog.

GameTap says Grimm will be a story-driven action-adventure game featuring a "compelling collection of vividly drawn characters inhabiting a world built around twisted takes on the best-known tales in Western fiction."

Promising a "sandbox world" in which players will take on missions in episodic fashion starting in 2008, GameTap says the title will feature traditional adventure game exploration and questing, and a fighting mechanic that it says is based on the notion that "words are weapons."

The game is being developed by McGee's American-owned and Shanghai-headquartered studio Spicy Horse, specializing in what it calls "boutique games for the PC and next-gen console markets."

Said GameTap content VP Ricardo Sanchez, “American McGee is one of the best known and most dynamic developers in the industry today and Grimm is the perfect fit with our GameTap Originals brand. American is really exploring the potential of episodic game development. Adding this exciting new title to our list of already successful episodic game titles shows our commitment to this proven format.”
