Human Head’s former COO Ash Monif has formed a new studio called Grimm Bros. in which the classic fairy tales of the same name will be made into games featuring the “humor of Monty Python and the darkness of Evil Dead”. The art in the RPG titles will be directed by artist Randis Albion. “I grew up reading the classics like Grimm, Chaucer, Tolkien – and I feel that today’s games gloss over a lot of the richness that can be found within these great works,” said Monif. “Our goal is to create classic and immersive RPG and adventure games, set in a persistent world for a community of core gamers.” The first game from the company will be announced during GDC next week. Thanks, Joystiq.
