Will fans back an Alice 3 Kickstarter, asks American McGee

Publisher EA holds the rights to American McGee's Alice, a darker and crazier spin on Alice in Wonderland. McGee has taken to Facebook asking if fans would chip in their pledges if he could get the IP back.

The last entry was Alice: Madness Returns in 2011 which didn't perform well commercially. Earlier this year McGee remarked EA has 'mis-marketed' the game, before shortly retracting his comments.

The premise behind American McGee's Alice is that, if Wonderland exists solely within Alice's mind, what happens to it when she goes mad? A delightful romp ensues!

Here's what American McGee posted on his Facebook:

Alice Fans,
Questions for you:

1) If we could get the rights from EA, would you play "Alice 3?"
2) If you'd play "Alice 3," would you back it on Kickstarter?
3) If you said "yes" to those two things, make some noise - I'm trying to gauge interest in case I happen to discuss this with EA during GDC in 2 weeks. The more interest there is, the more seriously they'll take the conversation.


Spicy Horse is McGee's studio and it has recently launched a free-to-play action-RPG by the name of Akaneiro: Demon Hunters after it was successfully funded through Kickstarter. It blends Japanese culture and Red Riding Hood.

Depends whether he would take the franchise somewhere new or simply make a remake.
Good platformers with a classic spin would be nice and not having EA or Origin would be great as well. And I liked the old games enough to be ready to chip in - I just one of those that don't like to like anything on Facebook...
