New 'Alice' Game From American McGee In the Works, Here's How to Get Involved With 'Alice: Asylum'
American McGee's Alice franchise took the beloved Alice in Wonderland series and turned it into a horrifying nightmare that fans couldn't get enough of. Though the mechanics were criticized for being stilted, the game as a whole was praised for its immersive narrative and unique twist to a well-known tale. Back in 2017, the studio reached out for help convincing EA to back a new game in this twisted version of Alice and now it looks like a new project is well underway.
"American is hard at work on design, art, and story for the next chapter in Alice's adventures," reads the latest blog post from the studio. "Alice: Asylum will present the story before American McGee's Alice, with young Alice fighting through the trauma of losing her family."
