The former chief operating officer at Human Head Studios, Ash Monif, and artist Randis Albion have co-founded a new game studio named Grimm Bros. This new studio will focus on mature, fairy tale-themed games with the “humor of Monty Python and the darkness of Evil Dead”.

“I have always been a fan of complex subject matter,” Monif said. “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. Our goal is to create classic and immersive RPG and adventure games, set in a persistent world for a community of core gamers.”

The studio has already started working on its first game, to be unveiled during next week’s Game Developers Conference. Below you’ll find some concept art, probably from that very game.
