American McGee is creating Games

patrons

I've been developing games since 1994 and have a long list of credits which include classics such as "DOOM" and "American McGee's Alice." Since 2000 I've worked as an independent developer and founded several development companies, most notably Spicy Horse in Shanghai which I ran until 2016. 

These days my work is contained within a company called Mysterious. I've gone back to basics with a twisted fairy tale project called "Out of the Woods" which presents ten classic tales as a tabletop card game, illustrated book, and collection of art prints. 

Mysterious is also where I'm starting work to present a new chapter in the Alice series with "Alice: Asylum." My goal is to build a production/design plan, have that plan approved by EA, and then raise funding to develop a new game.

I'm aiming at October 2018 for the launch of the crowdfunding campaign and will spend the months leading up to this date preparing art, writing story/design, and sharing all of this with the Alice community. This is where YOU come in...



Join me and the Alice community in shaping the visuals, mechanics, and narrative of Alice's next adventure. Via Patreon, YouTube, and other sharing platforms we're working as a team to make sure the next Alice game is everything you want it to be. Here on Patreon you'll get early access to our creative output and have a direct line of communication to me and the community!

How do I use the funding? The production of art and design materials related to new projects like "Alice: Asylum" requires a time/money investment. Each new concept image can cost between $750 and $1200 depending on the style, complexity of the image, and artist in question.

Your support helps me and my team maintain development momentum and share our art, designs, and games with the world.

Development updates to the various projects being created at Mysterious will be posted to Facebook, YouTube, and other social media channels. 

As a Patron you will get:
  • Early access to art, design, and production updates.
  • Your questions and comments addressed directly during live streams.
  • Your name/credit on screen during live streams.
  • More fun stuff TBD!
