Would You Care For Some More Alice, Sir?
American McGee should be no stranger to most gamers. I mean, what the hell kind of name is that anyway? Not the kind you soon forget. Well, McGee posted this picture up on his Facebook yesterday, with the attached caption saying:
"Alice Fans, questions for you:
1. If we could get the rights from EA, would you play Alice 3?
2. If you'd play Alice 3, would you back it on Kickstarter?
3. If you said "yes" to those two things, make some noise - I'm trying to gauge interest in case I happen to discuss this with EA during GDC in 2 weeks. The more interest there is, the more seriously they'll take the conversation."
In other words, he asks his fans to hear if they are interested in another game in the Alice franchise, and if so, are they willing to dish out for a Kickstarter campaign in order to get it.
McGee is no newcomer to the Kickstarter concept. A few months ago he launched a project for his Action-RPG Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, combining Western fairy tales with a bit of Japanese mythology thrown in for the sake of originality. The project lasted for a month, and barely made it over its goal before time ran out. So that begs the question. Were you a fan of the two previous Alice games? Are YOU willing to heed the call of (Kickstarter) duty, when the time comes?
