American McGee and Spicy Horse Games have cancelled their Kickstarter campaign they had running for their twisted Wizard of Oz themed game called OZombie, although that name was going to be changed to something else. This game was to feature Dorothy and friends who were out to stop a rather angry Scarecrow who was taking his anger out on everyone, turning them into zombies and draining all the imagination and creativity from the land.
While the decision was made official that it would not be another Alice game that Spicy Horse would be making with the appearance of the OZombie Kickstarter campaign the other day, at least not at first, the company has seen a bit of a bumpy road with the OZombie game as well.
We’ve been following the saga that is Spicy Horse Games in regards to what their next title is going to be. At first it was going to be a rather cool and twisted sounding Wizard of Oz themed games called OZombie. Then news came out that if Spicy Horse Games and EA could work out the licensing issues that the next game would be a new Alice title. If they didn’t work their issues out then Spicy Horse Games would do the OZombie game instead.
American McGee’s Spicy Horse Games studio will be hitting up Kickstarter for funding their next game, they just don’t know what game that will actually be just yet. The company will be going onto Kickstarter in July to either fund the recently announced OZombie game, the Oz themed zombie game we reported on recently, or a new Alice game called Alice: Otherlands. However they will not make both.
American McGee’s, who developed the Alice: Maddness Returns game and owns Spicy Horse Games studio, has released a few more details about their upcoming new Oz game that we talked about only a few days ago. At the time the company didn’t even know what genre the game would be in or what it would all entail. Now we know that there will a Steampunk theme meshed into it as well as zombies.
