Alice: Madness Returns outed by EA

Trademark names American McGee's Alice sequel

Alice: Madness Returns could well be the name of American McGee's upcoming EA sequel.

That's if an new EA trademark application at the United States Patent and Trademark Office is anything to go by - which it usually is.

We brought you news that developer Spicy Horse and EA have reunited for the next chapter in American McGee's Alice back in February last year.

The original game is set in a considerably more disturbing rendition of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.

If you want to read the influences behind the story for Alice 2, we reported on it all the way back in April.

Be careful though because by "influences" we mean some heavy concepts and philosophy. There's an actual thesis in there.
