OZombie developer Spicy Horse would like to secure the film rights to American McGee’s vision of Alice in order to produce a series of short animations or even a feature film based on Otherlands, the studio’s other major potential project. To further this aim, Spicy Horse has announced it will use some of its OZombie Kickstarter funds to seal a deal, because “doing so will increase awareness about OZombie and put us in a position to secure and develop the Alice property as animated shorts and eventually feature film”. In other words: Alice fans pay (or rather, help pay) for OZombie, OZombie earns enough to pay for Alice.
