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.

Assuming any interest, the big company with the rights will pick up on it, then:

Alice fans
Question for you
1. Would you like to see console-like gameplay fun? Alice is held. Quick, squeeze right trigger, I mean tap shift, fast fast fast!

"Console-like" gameplay is a bit vague. Both games were platformers, a genre traditionally associated with consoles. If you enjoyed either of them, you probably enjoy "console-like" gameplay.

As for EA making another one, I seriously doubt it. MR didn't sell particularly well. The only reason EA even made a sequel in the first place was because the devs were in China, making the budget significantly lower than it would have been otherwise. The big publishers are only interested in small downloadable games that cost less than $1 million to make or huge, AAA games that cost $20+ million. Mid-budget games (like another Alice game would be) are of no interest to them.
