Kickstarter for American McGee's OZombie canceled

Spicy Horse hopes to nab the film rights to Alice instead

The struggling Kickstarter campaign for American McGee's OZombie, an action-adventure title set in the Oz universe, has been closed by developer Spicy Horse. Based on current tracking, it looked as if funding would be out of reach, though this was only part of the reason for the project's early termination. McGee and his team are also interested in securing the film rights to Alice, but cannot run two campaigns simultaneously per Kickstarter's rules.

"For Oz, we can always launch another campaign in the future," writes McGee. "On the other hand, the Alice film rights are only within reach during a rapidly closing window of opportunity. We’ll sacrifice Oz today in order to have a real chance with Alice." Thankful for the feedback given, he says "It's been an interesting ride and one that has taught me a multitude of valuable lessons. While we’re ending it early, we're certainly not walking away empty handed. When Oz makes a return you can expect it to be better and stronger.

"Now we turn our attention to Alice. Securing these film rights would be nothing short of a major coup. We'd control a significant portion of Alice's future. Being able to produce animations, feature films and related merchandise means keeping Alice’s world fresh, no matter what else might happen with the game portion of the property. I hope you'll join us in making this a reality."
