American McGee’s Alice was one of the most appreciated (and clearly one of the strangest) games released in 2000 and even now, nine years after the game’s original launch, fans are still talking about this masterpiece. Starting today, they will have even more reasons to talk, since Electronic Arts and American McGee’s studio (Spicy Horse) have signed a deal do bring Alice back to our homes.
“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.”
The new American McGee’s Alice is in development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. No estimated release date was announced, but we can wait. For such a game, yes, we can wait.
