American McGee's Oz: Ozombie is Revealed and Could Replace Alice 3
Today American McGee left us with concept art not for Alice: Otherlands, but for a title known as OZombie along with a short message:
"Oh my... what's become of Dorothy? Definitely not in Kansas anymore, Toto.
Teaser art for a larger announcement we'll make later this week.
Depending on how discussions with EA wind up... We're off to Wonderland or Oz.
Which might you prefer?"- American McGee via Facebook
How do you feel about this sudden possible departure from Alice after all the petitioning done by fans? It seems a bit saddening for most, as the comments section showed many fans preferring Alice over Dorothy. Why not do both? Probably due to funding issues.
Oz was a project that was previously abandoned many years ago due to funding issues, before the time of Alice Madness Returns or it's potential sequel Alice: Otherlands.
On a side note, American discussed sending Alice into the minds of the great minds of the Victorian Era, and potentially to France to explore the minds of the famous painters of the time. He also released more Alice: Otherlands concept art, this time of the London Alice will be visiting.
With so much hype surrounding Alice: Otherlands, it seems like a bad idea to turn back to Oz. The Alice in Otherland petition has already reached past 12,000 signatures, with a planned closing to the petition when it reaches it's one year anniversary. With the Alice Kickstarter planned for July much is still left up in the air as American talks with EA.
Let American McGee know what you think on his official Facebook page, or the Alice in Otherlands page, he directly communicates with fans so your voice will be heard! If you want to see Alice return to Wonderland, or want to see Dorothy go to the new world of OZombie don't be afraid to speak up. American has shown time and time again that he really listens to the fans, so be vocal guys.
