Well here we go folks. Two days ago several websites (mine included) posted a teaser for Alice 2. I wasn’t entirely convinced if was official but it was enough to raise my hopes up. Now American McGee has posted on his website that the teaser is a fake.
Here’s what he said:
“Yesterday, a few sites picked up a video of Alice made by one of our fans and confused it as an official trailer of Alice 2, I wanted to clear up any confusion — as I mentioned in my post it was unofficial, and does not represent any of the final art direction or story elements in Alice 2. We look forward to sharing information on the game in the future.”
The one positive is the last sentence in that post. Let’s get hoping!
I had pretty much given up on this but I guess Tim Burton’s upcoming remake of Alice in Wonderland helped greenlight the project.
Today though we were given the first (official looking) teaser for the sequel to the 200o cult hit. Details are still few but we know the game is supposed to hit in 2011 and it looks like it will be based on Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to the original book by Lewis Carroll.
The look is very different with a sort of stop-motion feel to it and we don’t know much about the sound. I really hope Chris Vrenna returns for the soundtrack because Alice’s is still one of my all time favorite. The voice of the Cheshire Cat doesn’t sound the same but I really hope it is because, again, Alice had some of the best voice work ever made in a game.
Anyway enjoy the teaser and cross fingers!
This week I take a look at some spooky and moody tunes just in time for All Hallow’s Eve… Well not exactly just in time becaue it was a bit delayed in posting but one can still enjoy darker tunes all year long
