American McGee's indie studio Spicy Horse has announced that their take on the popular Grimm fairy tales has now made its way to Steam
, with the game includes 23 half-hour-long episodes based on fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood, The Golden Goose, Cinderella, Pinnochio, Sleeping Beauty and Jack and the Beanstalk.
The developer stresses that the contained episodes can be enjoyed in any order, so players that are eager to see the much more dark twist on Red Riding Hood can do so at their own pleasure.
Once upon a time, fairy tales were valuable cautionary yarns filled with dire warnings and sage advice. However, over time, the stories have become so watered down with cute woodland creatures and happy endings that they have lost their true meaning and purpose. No more! This is American McGee's Grimm, and Happily Ever After ends now!
The 23 episodes are available for 99 cents apiece, though Spicy Horse has offered up the first episode for free as a taste tester. Those looking to buy the game may feel slightly confused with the Steam store page
listing two buy options, either the complete package for $9.99 that does include all episodes or the "add all DLC to cart" option coming in at $21.78 that includes all episodes as well. Odd.
