Return of Alice trailer 'unofficial,' says American McGee

When you consider the professional level of quality of the trailer, you can see how the mistake could have been made

Back in the old days, when you put a trailer on a game's official website, said trailer would also be deemed official. Turns out that's not the case for the Return of Alice video that I got all giddy over earlier in the week. American McGee, the lead developer on Return of Alice, made this comment on his blog:

Yesterday, a few sites picked up a video of Alice made by one of our fans and confused it as an official trailer of Alice 2. I wanted to clear up any confusion -- as I mentioned in my post it was unofficial, and does not represent any of the final art direction or story elements in Alice 2. We look forward to sharing information on the game in the future.

While McGee did indeed post a message on his Twitter page stating the trailer was unofficial, the trailer had been on the official site for many hours beforehand. When you consider the professional level of quality of the trailer, you can see how the mistake could have been made. Nevertheless, we apologize to any readers who were misled by our previous Return of Alice story.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
