It seems Electronic Arts isn't quite sure what it wants to do with the rights to Alice .
At least, that's the vibe we're getting from developer Spicy Horse's latest newsletter (as cited by Joystiq ).
According to the information, EA and Spicy Horse are still in the process of negotiating:
"It still comes back to our negotiations with Electronic Arts for a licensing agreement to produce a new Alice title. Should we reach an agreement, then come July, it's full steam ahead on a Kickstarter for Alice. If we cannot, to Oz with Dorothy we shall go."
So when and how will Alice: Otherworlds see the light of day? Well, it's going to be funded by a Kickstarter campaign that will commence in July, so concrete details are TBA. We just don't know exactly which project will be moving forward until they launch that campaign, and that decision apparently hinges on EA. The last series installment, Alice: Madness Returns , was decent, but it had a few too many mechanical issues.
We still want another twisted Alice adventure, though.
