American McGee gauging interest for Alice 3

Developer asks fans if they would support a Kickstarter campaign for a third entry in series if rights can be obtained from EA.


American McGee wants to know if gamers would be interested in Alice 3. Writing on Facebook, the game designer asked fans if they would support a Kickstarter campaign for the game, provided the rights could be acquired from Electronic Arts.

McGee said fans should "make some noise" if they want the game to become a reality.

"I'm trying to gauge interest in case I happen to discuss this with EA during [the Game Developers Conference] in two weeks," McGee said. "The more interest there is, the more seriously they'll take the conversation."

Last month, McGee bemoaned EA's marketing of Alice: Madness Returns. On Reddit, he claimed EA intentionally created trailers for the game that would "trick" gamers into thinking the game was a hardcore horror title.

If McGee can obtain the Alice rights from EA for a Kickstarter campaign, it won't be his first stab at the crowdfunding service. The developer and his studio, Spicy Horse Games, successfully funded free-to-play game Akaneiro: Demon Hunters through the platform.
