)Well, this is a little exciting.
American McGee’s Alice, and it’s sequel Alice: Madness returns, are cult games, and it’s a series that has been in desperate need of more entries!
The first game in the psychological horror series painted Wonderland in a much more macabre light. Wonderland, created in Alice’s mind after she has witnessed the fiery death of her family, has become corrupted and Alice must save it, and in doing so, save herself.
Alice: Madness Returns sees Alice, now 19 and living in an orphanage,
under the care of Dr. Angus Bumby, a psychiatrist who uses hypnosis to help his child patients forget their memories, suffering an hallucination and slipping back into Wonderland, which has been corrupted by an outside force known as the Infernal Train.
And now, American McGee has confirmed in a blog post on his site that game number 3, Alice: Asylum is in the works!
” American is hard at work on design, art, and story for the next chapter in Alice’s adventures. “Alice: Asylum” will present the story before “American McGee’s Alice,” with young Alice fighting through the trauma of losing her family. “American McGee – www.americanmcgee.com
This game will rely heavily on support of patreons and fans. By supporting the game on Patreon you can get directly involved in the feedback process.
The game has now hit over 3,200 backers on Patreon and I am very, very excited to see this come to life. There’s no release window just yet, and because this is a fan-backed game, it may be a long wait, but that’s totally ok with us!
