Alex Petraglia over at Primotechnology.com has posted a lengthy and informative interview that covers topics from my past, such as Oz and Alice, my present project, Bad Day LA, and a range of other subjects. Worth a read. A truly impressive Bad Day LA concept art/screenshot gallery goes along with it.
McGeeâ€™s most current and prolific venture is a title called Bad Day LA. The game, scheduled for release this year, is currently being developed by McGee at Enlightâ€™s studios in Hong Kong. Ever wonder what happens when the most self-indulgent city in the United States gets hit by every natural (and unnatural) disaster ever conceived? McGee banked heavily on the nationâ€™s fear obsession, a condition we have both the government and media to thank for.
In other news, McGee has hinted at a possible movie tie-in for Alice since the game was released in 2000. Those plans are finally officially confirmed. The movie will be directed by Marcus Nispel (the 2003 rendition of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and star Sarah Michelle Gellar as the title character. If all goes according to plan, the movie is on track for a 2006 wide release.
We caught up with the man and myth himself to answer some questions about his past, BDLA, and the future of the industry. Read on.
