Pew! Pew! Preview!: American McGee's Grimm: A Boy Learns What Fear Is
by Justin Villasenor

Have you ever found yourself thinking that fairy tales are just too damn happy nowadays? If so, then you may just find a kindred spirit in Spicy Horse Games, a developer that is creating a new franchise that focuses on giving these tales a much darker makeover.

American McGee’s Grimm: A Boy Learns What Fear Is serves as the introduction to a new episodic videogame series that will be exclusively distributed on GameTap. Taking a cue from the previous American McGee-branded game, Alice, Grimm takes the fairy tales we’ve all grown up hearing and puts a much darker spin on things.

These stories won’t start out grim, however: it will be up to the player -- and a horrid little bearded man named Grimm -- to gradually corrupt them, chapter-by-chapter. By properly utilizing Grimm’s foul aura, colorful landscapes will quickly be transformed into spooky, foreboding wastelands, full of lava, black skies, and barking hellhounds.

Hit the jump to get a detailed look at the corrupting revision process that American McGee’s Grimm employs.
