As I've mentioned before, I do not play computer games very often However, one of my favourite of the few that I do play is American McGee's Alice.
Although Alice is a fairly standard platform game, the incredible, beautiful, stunningly creepy artwork and Chris Vrenna's spooky soundscape elevate it from a mere game to something akin to a piece of animated art.
And now I find that it is being made into a film. It is the kind of film that would have benefitted from the talents of Dave McKean—my very favourite artist and obvious influence on much of my work—as brought to bear so beautifully on Mirrormask.
Alice will probably be absolute horseshit, but I very much hope that it might live up to the potential of the game...
