Aspyr Media has announced that it has acquired the rights to publish American McGee's Alice for the Mac, a third-person 3D action/adventure game which uses the Quake III: Arena engine. The game will be ported to the Mac by Westlake Interactive after already successfully porting another Quake III-engine title, Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force. "No release date for Alice has been set, but it should be a fairly quick development, given Quake III's excellent Mac version and Westlake's prior knowledge of the engine," notes Westlake's web site.
Alice is a twisted, wild game that Mac users will appreciate not only for its gameplay but also its stunning visuals. This is probably the most atmosphere-rich game ever made," says Michael Rogers, President of Aspyr.
Join Alice in her return trip to a twisted Wonderland, evilly altered by anger and dread. Confront the Queen of Hearts and her evil minions, including Ferocious Card Guards, Demonic Fire Imps, Ravenous Jabberspawn and more, who enforce her evil will. They're all mad! A fierce and nasty fight for sanity and control turns into a lethal struggle for survival.
Alice includes the most Devious Puzzles and Labyrinthine Mazes. Visit levels reminiscent of the Pool of Tears, the Caterpillar's Garden, the Mad Hatter's Tea Party and more. Familiar characters are mysteriously transformed. Witness an arsenal of the most mischievous toys ever imagined.
