    Reminds me a bit of the direction American McGee took with Alice. Twisting children's stories into something creppy and adult is a sure fire win. Coupled with a truly awesome steam punk look is making me extremely excitied about this.

    I was kind of hoping it was based on the new Tron, but this looks good too.

    Twisted Tales



    I always thought that Disney was the one to twist the children's tales. Fairy Tales were originally designed to put fear into children, not entertain them, so in fact, McGee was closer to the "original" than Disney.

    A lot of Disney's cartoons are Grimm Brothers stories made tame!

    Enough useless information tho, the art direction looks great, might make Walt turn in his grave tho!:D

    You're right, but it actually goes further than that. The Brothers Grimm books were actually tamed, modernised versions of even older stories. Often they didn't even have a moral or a point, they were just folk-tales. I'm actually reading a facsimile of the original translation of Hans Christian Anderson's fairtales, and I tell you, some of them are just weird beyond belief. No real beginnings, middle, or ends, and certainly no message, just a bit of a snap-shot of an event.

    That said, I'm afraid Mickey Mouse was always just designed to entertain.
