Alice 3 Possibilities Raised

American McGee has taken to Facebook to poll fans about their interest in supporting a Kickstarter for Alice 3, a new installment in Spicy Horse's take on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This would not simply involve funding the game, but to also securing the rights to do create it. Here's word:

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.

Sad to say, but I would rather they skipped it. Or had somebody else do it.

I liked the first game, though it had its share of rough edges. But the second game was...just boring and kind of tedious. It had the usual nice Alice design, but it started slow, felt small, was a bit clunky, and loved pointless combat.

I paid full price for the first game and beat it with fond memories. I bought the second game for $5-$10 and never finished it.
'Nuff said.
Wondering if there will be any surprises with the S4,

Eh? This is rose-tinted glasses if ever there were such a thing. The first Alice is pretty terrible compared to the sequel. The sequel has better traversal mechanics, better writing, better presentation, better level design and better combat. Seriously, every criticism you made towards Madness Returns can be applied ten-fold to the first game.

Really, go back and try the first game again. I had fond memories of it too until I played it again (it came bundled with MR). The game hasn't aged well at all, whereas MR is still pretty entertaining.
