Having finally nabbed film rights to his Alice series (following the cancellation of his most recent Kickstarter campaign), American McGee has launched a new Kickstarter campaign to fund the creation of the much-talked-about Alice feature film.
American McGee’s twisted take on Alice in Wonderland has been capturing the imagination of fans since the original game debuted back in 2000. The movie rights to his vision have been bouncing around for nearly as long. Now McGee wants them back, but he can’t do it alone.
While in a Reddit AMA, game designer American McGee said that EA wanted to “trick” gamers into thinking Alice: Madness Returns was as dark as its marketing and called this tactic part of a “race to the bottom”.
