American McGee wants to know if gamers would be interested in Alice 3. Writing on Facebook, the game designer asked fans if they would support a Kickstarter campaign for the game, provided the rights could be acquired from Electronic Arts.
McGee said fans should “make some noise” if they want the game to become a reality.
“I’m trying to gauge interest in case I happen to discuss this with EA during [the Game Developers Conference] in two weeks,” McGee said. “The more interest there is, the more seriously they’ll take the conversation.”
Last month, McGee bemoaned EA’s marketing of Alice: Madness Returns. On Reddit, he claimed EA intentionally created trailers for the game that would “trick” gamers into thinking the game was a hardcore horror title.
If McGee can obtain the Alice rights from EA for a Kickstarter campaign, it won’t be his first stab at the crowdfunding service. The developer and his studio, Spicy Horse Games, successfully funded free-to-play gameAkaneiro: Demon Hunters through the platform.
