Alice: Otherlands Asset Drop


Contained in this post are links to digital assets for Alice: Otherlands.

This content was made possible by generous support of those who backed the Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter campaign. My sincerest thanks to all those who backed, supported, and worked on the campaign.

Otherlands represents a narrative exploration of Alice’s journey after the events of “Madness Returns.” Being fan-funded and deriving from the property’s film license, Otherlands carries an unusual, rogue-like status next to the “official” content contained within the games published by EA.

It’s uncertain whether we’ll see Alice continue to explore Otherlands (in film or games), or if her adventures will continue along a different path. Despite the magical nature of these explorations, their existence requires real world funding and planning – a fate controlled by mysterious corporate and legal doings.

For now, we have two short films and supporting art to sate our appetite for psychological adventure. Directors Troy Morgan and Ed Goin take us on journeys as unique as the characters whose minds Alice invades. Their visions add to the growing collection of art and storytelling that’s grown out of the Alice series.

Linked below are digital assets produced by the Otherlands project. These can be used to recreate the physical rewards from the Kickstarter – Art book, DVD, and BluRay – as they are the same files we used for physical production. Due to legal constraints we are unable to sell physical rewards outside of the Kickstarter campaign (now ended).

If you just want to watch the videos (not download the video files), you can do so via my YouTube Channel.

These assets may be reproduced and distributed freely, but not offered for sale in any format.
