Former Human Head COO starts new studio Grimm Bros.

Grimm Bros. is a new studio being formed by Prey 2 developer Human Head's former Chief Operating Officer Ash Monif, with artist Randis Albion taking on the role of art director. Prey 2 is currently in limbo. The developer plans on taking Grimm fairy tales and mixing them with the "humor of Monty Python and the darkness of Evil Dead" in an RPG.

"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 studio has started work on its first game, which it plans to announce at next week's Game Developers Conference.
