3,389 backers pledged $222,377 to help bring this project to life.

Release the Hounds!

Posted by American McGee (Creator)

Woof! 80% and racing towards a heart pounding finish! Are we going to make it? I'm on the edge of my seat here. I've said the "horse race" aspect of Kickstarter is what makes it so much fun, but this??? This is too much fun! 

To celebrate our latest milestone, another brilliant mind! This time a revealing looking into the mind of Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle, prolific writer and creator of Sherlock Holmes

Another beautiful illustration by Spicy Horse artist Joey. And, as with many of the previous illustrations, we'll be adding this to the campaign as an add-on at $65 + $10 for international shipping.

      Ok, up goes the pledge.

      A little comment that I hope won't bore people. I just wanted to say how much this means to me. I wish I was able to pledge much more.
      @ American: you rock, you are absolutely amazing and a genius in capturing Alice's essence and forming her character that much through the first two games. I'm sure you've heard congrats and praise from many but I always considered you an incredibly talented artist even from the days of Scrapland which I played on the x-box. Alice series surpass everything else... you have my gratitude and respect.
      @ to everyone else. This might get a bit emotional here, but I wanted to thank all of you for supporting this amazing project... it means a HUGE lot to me, because to me it's not just a good game but it's what it hints at that makes it what it is... I cannot explain it much better but I'm overwhelmed and excited, hoping that we will make it! It's not just for us.... it's for ALICE! Let's make the world know of this! Let's post, rave, tweet, like and do what we can. It's a battle of wills, and a small part of our soul lives in Alice...otherwise we wouldn't be here in the first place. Come on, we can make it!!! Spread the word!

      Just upped my pledge for the second time. Those canvas posters are too good to not get at least one! Go, Alice, go!!!

      Things are looking pretty good guys. It was about as close of a call (so far) as the goon kickstarter was. Just put how much you're willing to spend down, spread the word of the project, and hope this awesome project makes it

      I'm doing my best to share this with my friends and people on tumblr.
      I hope you make it.
      I loved the drastic change from the first game to the second. The music, the gameplay, the scene of it all, it was such a beautiful and amazing change, showing Alice's development as her London self but also as her Wonderland self.
      I shall do my best to see if I can't find more who want to support this.
      Good luck with everything :D

      I'm trying to come up with more money so that I can add a couple more things. I keep posting this to Twitter and G+. Come on Alice, you can do it! Not on Facebook, but a friend of mine who is did post it. Still keeping my fingers crossed. I would be THRILLED to pay for this, it's a product I've loved since Day 1.

      @Olivera, If a Kickstarter campaign (this one included) doesn't reach its goal, then it does not fund. None of the backers are charged. And for Otherlands... it will mean the end. The film rights will be released to the open market and I assume some faceless corporation will snatch them up. End of story.

    8. Rewak on

      @Olivera If the goal isn't reached then Spicy get no money (no ones credit card gets charged unless the goal is reached by the end time)

      It says that the project will only be funded if it reaches the goal of $200k. What will happen if it doesn't?

    10. Matthew Nigrelli on

      @American, Thanks for the answers!

    11. American McGee 3-time creator on

      @Vicki, Lucian, others... A couple of problems with a post-campaign-campaign...
      1) If we announce that right now, then I think a lot of people who are currently pledging or thinking about pledging will say, "well, they are just going to do another campaign later, I'll wait for that one."

      2) I'm burnt out on Kickstarter and would prefer to give it a rest for a while. Can you imagine if we tried a fourth Kickstarter in 2013? Aye yay yay! Seriously, I need a REST.

      3) I am in the process of lining out outside sources of funding for the animations and the feature film. Not certain yet, but I think if we can show the interest people have in the Alice: Otherlands project, then we should be able to secure some additional (outside) funding to help with things like VO and additional animations.

      Hope that all makes sense. Appreciate the passion and creativity you're all showing here :)

    12. Nathan Camp on

      Id be behind such a suggestion. I have put forward what I can for now, but should this be successful I'd put forward for another campaign as a way to get lithographs etc that I am unable to pledge for currently.

    13. LockVII on

      @BLINK:
      I think Lucian is talking about having a separate campaign for the stretch goals of the Voice Actors. We'll finish the Otherlands movie rights ks first (this current one) and if/once we make it and secure the movie rights, hopefully start up a separate ks that will become an extension of this one for more $$ to bring in the VA (and maybe longer/more shorts)

    14. Cameron (BLINK) on

      @Lucian they can't do another campaign for Alice. The reason this was set to such a small timeframe was because American only has a limited time to buy the rights to Alice before they sell it to someone else.
      If this campaign doesn't reach it's goal, Alice: Otherlands won't exist! :(

    15. Lucian Cruor on

      Oooh, I really like this one, too! You know, if we don't get the extra 50k for our favourite VAs in time for this to be over, we should really have another KS with all the rewards and prints and stuff from this one that goes at least two months. We can TOTALLY do 50k in two months and it will give everyone the time to get paid and pick up things that they wanted, but couldn't afford.

    16. Kyle Schroeder on

      I'm getting nervous. I wish there was some demon that could be summoned to ensure success.

    17. LockVII on

      Haha, so many prints!
      Just want to double check, will all these prints be in the artbook as well? The reason i ask this is because in the AMR Artbook, there's no "Mysterious East" page, despite it being in print/lithograph form :(

    18. Jason Woods on

      Since we're so close to the end, and as a final motivation, can you have one of your artist draw Alice inside of her own mind? Make it like Londerland or something similar.
