With so many different renditions, variations and adaptions of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland available in all different forms of media, you'd think people would have had enough by now. Not so; but American McGee has.
Famed for his work on the early-2000s psychedelic entry of 'American McGee's Alice' (among Doom and Quake), EA went on to commission a sequel in the 2011 with Alice: Madness Returns. And while the game didn't exactly break records, it garnered a cult following. A following who really want a third game.
Taking to both Twitter and his own Blog, American McGee wrote "I HAVE NO CONTROL over the Alice rights, EA’s decision-making process, or anything at all related to Alice, Alice merchandise, Alice adaptations, etc, etc. EA are aware that you’d like a new Alice game and that RJ Berg and I would be happy to assist in the design, writing, and development of such. We simply need to wait until EA think the time is right for a new game."
"I REALLY appreciate the passion everyone has for the Alice series. I want to see a new game as much as you do,”. Breaking the hearts of his fans and piecing them back together by the end, McGee a squashed hopes by saying how he has no access to cut content or a potential demo build, but that he would be more than willing to make a new game should EA allow it.
Essentially, he's telling everyone to go vent their wishes and frustrations at EA. They're the ones who need to know. American McGee is powerless until they give him power.
