Where is Alice 3? – Will there be an Alice 3? – New Alice? – Alice Sequel?

“Where is Alice 3” “Where’s the new Alice game?” “Will there be an Alice 3”

I get this question constantly. Several times per day. Across YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and via my InReach satellite messenger. My dog has even learned how to ask this question via Morse code farts.

My hope is that this post will become the top search result for this question on Google and that you’ve arrived here after a Google search. Reading this, you won’t need to send a message to me directly asking any of these questions. That would be great.

So, to answer the question:

1. EA own, control, and decide the fate of the game rights to Alice. That means any new game must be green-lit, funded, produced, published, and distributed by them.

2. No, EA will NOT allow me (or anyone else) to crowd fund, raise investment for, or otherwise self-develop, self-fund, or self-publish any interactive version of Alice.

3. I HAVE NO CONTROL over the Alice rights, EA’s decision-making process, or anything at all related to Alice, Alice merchandise, Alice adaptations, etc, etc.

4. EA are aware that you’d like a new Alice game and that RJ Berg and I would be happy to assist in the design, writing, and development of such. We simply need to wait until EA think the time is right for a new game.

5. There probably WILL BE another Alice game before we all die, but your requests, ideas, and harebrained schemes to make that happen faster should be sent to EA, not me.

6. No, I cannot put you in touch with “that person” at EA. Tweet at them. That’s what I do.

7. Please, stop asking me this question or questions in general related to a new Alice game. Again, I have no more control over this situation than you do. Tweet at EA.

Hope that clears that up.

While we’re on the topic of Alice, many of you write expressing your confusion about Alice: Otherlands. That project used the Alice FILM rights, which are not controlled by EA, and was funded via Kickstarter. All goals were achieved and all rewards delivered. If you’d like more info on this film/animation project, please check out the Kickstarter page.

NO, I do not have a demo of Madness Returns. I don’t have access to any of the removed content. And I am VERY frustrated with the small group of fanatic trolls who continue to bring up this topic and pester me with questions about it. Please, stop. At this point, I’ve begun blocking any person who persists in questioning me on this topic, so you’ve been warned.

Last thing: I REALLY appreciate the passion everyone has for the Alice series. I want to see a new game as much as you do. Apologies if this message comes out sounding frustrated or angry, but the amount of traffic I get on these questions literally impedes my ability to put effort towards new ideas and new projects. I don’t want to ignore the questions, but I do wish the volume would lessen. I appreciate your understanding.

PPS: “Out of the Woods” is my NEW GAME! A table top card game, illustrated book, coloring book and collection of art prints inspired by ten classic fairy tales. You should back it on Kickstarter because doing so will make EA think more about a new Alice game!

The Mysterious Vorpal Wallet

I had no idea what to expect when I decided to open an online store with my girlfriend, fashion designer Yeni Zhang. We’d talked for ages about finding a way to combine our talents – her fashion and design skills with my story writing and marketing abilities. We decided on “Mysterious” – a place where people can collect unique fashion items inspired by my twisted fairy tale interpretations.

The first product we offered, The Vorpal Bag, was a huge hit with collectors around the world. In less than 2 months we saw 160 of the 200 limited edition bags vanish like a Cheshire Cat. And feedback from customers couldn’t be more positive. Here’s an example from Daniel S. in the USA:

“Just letting you know that I received my Vorpal Bag today. The packaging was great, it seems like a lot of care was taken to keep the bag in pristine shape. I thought the white box was handsome, and appreciated the canvas bag as well. All the protruding metal parts of the bag were covered so as to prevent damage, which was a nice touch.

All the stitching was perfect. I looked all through the bag with an eye towards that but couldn’t find a single problem stitch. It really speaks well towards the professional skills of the crafters that this bag came out so well. I could easily see a bag of this quality and aesthetic design being worth $300 or more. If you would, let Yeni know that I’m very pleased with the bag and I feel like it is worth more than the price I paid for it. It is obvious that it was produced with a lot of love.”

The next product we introduced was The Vorpal Wallet. Sales of this high-quality leather collectible wallet have been insane! In less than a week we’ve sold over 125 of the 200 that were produced. If you want to collect one of these limited edition wallets, you’d better move fast!

Very excited by the positive reaction we’ve had from collectors around the world. Now we’re scrambling to get more bags, wallets, and accessories designed and added to the Mysterious shop. We had no idea these first items would go so fast or that this side project would be so much fun!

What’s next? Yeni’s just put finishing touches on designs for a smaller, less expensive Vorpal Purse. We’re also working on design ideas for a line of umbrellas and scarves featuring twisted fairy tale prints. There’s also a Red Riding Hood themed “Big Teeth Bag” in the works!

We’d love to hear your feedback. What kind of items would you like to see added to Mysterious? Let us know by sending a message via the Mysterious Facebook page, or Mysterious shop page.
