It’s been a long time since I wrote anything about American McGee. In the matter of fact, the last time that I did that was back in November of 2015 (that’s when I wrote my “American McGee stands up for freedom of speech and artistic freedom once again” OP). Well, guess what? I just found out that not only will I get a chance to do an interview with McGee. I was also told that McGee is going to launch a Kickstarter campaign for his new game “Out of the Woods” (the Kickstarter campaign is said to kick-off on the 18th of July at 10 AM):

“Out of the Woods is my latest project – a selection of 10 fairy tales turned into a card game, book, and collection of art prints. I’ll launch a Kickstarter mid-July, 2017 and am busy at work getting everything ready”American McGee

“Out of the woods” is a physical card game that revolves around ten classic fairy tales.

So what exactly is “Out of the Woods” then? Well, it’s a mix of a card game and classic fairy tales. You don’t have to take my word for it though, because here’s the actual game description by American McGee himself:

“Out of the Woods is… A card game, book, and collection of art prints. Based on ten of the most loved classic fairytales. Bluebeard, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, 3 Little Pigs, Red Riding Hood, Little Mermaid, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, Pied Piper.

Could a collection of classic fairy tales with a dark (re)-presentation serve to help parents convey life lessons, warnings, and common sense to their kids? Hell, I know a few adults, myself included, who could use a reminder of those lessons!

For the narrative theme, I’ve recently been thinking a lot about morality and behavioral development in a world less and less influenced by religion. While I myself am an atheist, I believe important life lessons must be passed to us by some method – religion, literature, and/or caregivers. This was the original purpose of fairy-tales – to scare children into acting morally and cautiously as they matured into adults.
