With Prey 2 still being held in limbo by Bethesda, it is understandable that members of Human Head the team that was working on the game, may want to move on to other projects. Both Chief Operating Officer Ash Monif and artist Randis Albion have announced that after leaving Human Head they have started their own development company called Grimm Bros.
The new studio will supposedly focus on making a RPG that is based on the Grimm fairy tales, but mix it with some Monty Python humor and add a little darkness from the Evil Dead series. Monif went on to say that many game developers skip over a lot of the classic literature that he grew up with like Grimm or Chaucer.
Monif finished by saying that the goal of Grimm Bros. is to create “classic and immersive RPG and adventure games” that are intended for “core” gamers. This new game will be shown off for the first time at the Game Developers Conference later next week. No word yet on whether the game will be a huge triple A title or a downloadable game, but an RPG that combines Monty Python, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, and the Evil Dead sounds good to me.
