American McGee's Grimm: The Girl Without Hands

[edit] Background

Once upon a time, fairy tales were valuable cautionary yarns filled with dire warnings and sage advice. However, over time, the stories have become so watered down with cute woodland creatures and happy endings that they have lost their true meaning and purpose. No more! Happily Ever After ends now!

In this episode five of Vol.1, the devil tricks a lowly miller into trading his daughter for the gift of wealth. Each time the devil comes to collect, the girl is so soaked with tears of sadness that the devil decides to come back another time. Accordingly, the miller cuts off the girl's hands so that she's constantly crying and therefore unwanted by the devil. The girl ultimately ends up marrying a king, but when he goes off to war, the devil returns and tricks the girl into thinking that the king has ordered her execution, driving her out of the castle and back to her father. She's, of course, grateful to return to a place of safety until Grimm reminds her of the soon-to-be-famous phrase "an arm for an arm."
