News: If you say 'American McGee' 3 times in front of a mirror at midnight, Strawberry Shortcake will jump out and kill you.
Almost ten years ago, Electronic Arts published American McGee's Alice, a reimagining of the Alice in Wonderland story that recreated the events as Alice's delusions after she was committed to an insane asylum. Since then, American McGee, a former id Software employee and one of the driving forces behind the classic Quake, has done little of note. But Alice is still remembered fondly.
And because of that he is returning to his most famous creation by announcing his Spicy Horse development team will be creating American McGee's Alice 2 for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
"This new project is a dream come true for me and the fans who've kept the Alice flame alive,? said American McGee, senior creative director at Spicy Horse. ?EA gave us creative latitude and support on the original game which resulted in something beautiful and daring. This trip through the looking glass promises to be even more exciting.?
?EA Partners is thrilled to team up with American McGee and Spicy Horse on the next installment of the Alice franchise,? said David DeMartini, senior vice president and general manager of EA Partners. ?American McGee's interpretation of Alice was an instant classic, and EA Partners is ready to help him bring his innovative vision for the franchise to even darker, more exciting places.?
No release date for American McGee's Alice 2 was revealed.
