Developer American McGee has made a career out of taking classic children’s tales and turning them into dark and stylish games. Well, it appears that McGee and his Spicy Horse team plan to add yet another iconic character to their reimagining ranks, which already includes Alice from Alice in Wonderland, and a wide array of characters from the Grimm's Fairytales. And that character is Little Red Riding Hood.
McGee posted a couple pieces of concept art for the game on his Flickr page (via Games Watch), and explained that he’ll be pitching the game, which appears to be called Red, at this year’s Game Developers Conference next week.
"If we’re lucky,” McGee continued, "an interested publisher will help us move it into production. It’s an idea that Ken Wong and I have been toying with for years."
I really dug Alice and Grimm (which actually included a chapter based on Little Red Riding Hood), so I’m obviously pulling for this Red Riding Hood project. I mean, taking an axe to giant wolves’ necks as a kick ass girl on her way to see her grandmother? Um, yes please.
