American McGee's Alice 3: Welcome to Otherland

A little over a year ago Alice: Madness Returns hit stores, the sequel to the popular game American McGee’s Alice. It received mixed to positive reviews, and was very popular among fans of the original game. In the end, Alice: Madness Returns was a successful game. Upon completing the game I only had one question left in my mind, “So what comes next?”. After a bit of research I found out that the possibility of a third Alice game has been addressed by Alice’s creator, American McGee."-Rantgaming.com (Alice in Otherland, Alice: Madness Returns, American McGee, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I really hope so! I Love these games!

The weird thing is that he wanted to do Alice 2 for a while and it took EA FOREVER to finally let him friggin do it. This is why I hate publishers these days, they want money, they dont want fun games. Alice 2 was easily one of the best games I played the entire year it came out, and yet EA blew it off to hype up their FPS titles....

Like he said, EA (and any third party publisher) doesn't care about innovation or the game itself, they just care about how much money it'll make....It sucks. Just put the minimum amount of money into this, you know it'll make it back, look at Alice 2. Whats the problem with releasing fun games? Not everything needs to be the next blockbuster title.

I wish McGee owned the rights so he could shop the idea elsewhere, then suddenly EA would wake up and publish it.....I have a feeling the only reason EA greenlit Alice 2 was because of Tim Burtons movie, so unless they make another movie I think this one is screwed....

Madness Returns was hands down my fave game last year.

That and the fact that McGee's studio is quite specifically about casual and mobile gaming...

Their next "mobile and online platforms" game looks like it'll be interesting. Set in Japan, a sort of Red Riding Hood game, with fighting demons, wolves and mythical monsters. Love some of the concept art.

I loved Madness Returns. Not so much the first one that came with it, because controls felt awkward. Looking forward to 3rd instalment nevertheless.

Alice 2 was indeed a great game!

EA is just so stupid!

Media failed the game . They nitpicked it to death , while it's plot and art direction was easily as good as their Enslaved darling , even better WHILE sporting an actually way superior gameplay and some challenge .

What does Enslaved (a game that's ripped to shreds every-time Ninja Theory is brought up) have to do with Alice 2? It was hardly anyone's darling. You seem bitter.

Actually the press loved it and overlooked any of its flaws . While they ignored Alice a game with the same storytelling qualities and a gorgeous design . That's all

Would be awesome to see another one.....& just to have the platformer genre represented a bit more with another Alice game, as nobody makes platformers anymore, I mean apart from Nintendo & there hero character Mario, there really is no PS3, 360 & PC representation in this genre anymore. It's sad, for consoles, this genre is what made home consoles & what made home consoles popular.

Hehehe sounds like Psychonauts, not that its a bad thing :D I'd loved Psychonauts to bits and to have a similar mechanic in an American McGee's Alice game, it'd be wicked!

Btw, there was even a lil nod to psychonauts in Alice Madness Returns. Too bad it was a dead Raz.

Alice 2 was an amazing game. However my only gripe is that game definitely dragged on longer than it should have. If they can nail the pacing and length in Alice 3, it'll definitely be a GotY contender.

Very underated game

Loved the world they created with Alice: Madness Returns, it was simply surreal and thought the gameplay was appropriate and having the original American McGee Alice was a great bonus.

I hope so too that an Alice 3 would be a reality.
