There is an interesting entry on Americana McGee's blog, concerning the third installment of the Alice series, entitled Alice: Asylum. Although we heard about this project some time ago, its creation is still not certain. The developer is said to be working on the title in full swing – he's currently involved in graphic design and screenplay – and encourages fans to show their support through e.g. social media and Patreon. Below you can see some attractive concept arts.
It is worth noting that Alice: Asylum is to be a prequel to the previous installments (the action will take place before the first part).
"American is hard at work on design, art, and story for the next chapter in Alice’s adventures," reads the latest blog post from the studio. “Alice: Asylum will present the story before American McGee’s Alice, with young Alice fighting through the trauma of losing her family," as we read on the blog.
American McGee's Alice is a series of action adventure games inspired by Lewis Caroll's novel Alice in Wonderland. The games are characterized by an extremely twisted, dark style and a high level of brutality. So far, the last title in the series was Alice: Madness Returns, released in 2011.
