American McGee's Alice: Sequel News

Alice is still my favorite PC game of all time. Earlier I came across some news that's about two months old and ten years overdue. There's a sequel in the works (see the artwork preview below) that would be released for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Here's the blurb:




REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb 19, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Electronic Arts Inc and Spicy Horse today announced that they have signed a publishing deal for an all-new title based on EA's 2000 classic, American McGee's Alice(TM). The game reunites EA with American McGee, the creative visionary behind the original game. The new title is in development for the PC, PLAYSTATION(R)3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360(R) video game console.

"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."

It's about time. Thanks for making us wait ten years to control Alice as she salts giant evil snails wearing steampunk devices in the darkest of realms.
