American McGee Interview - Alice & id Software

September 7, 2022

American McGee is a hugely respected video game designer who created the infamous Alice titles. He started his career in gaming at id Software, working on numerous DOOM and Quake games. Out of the blue he got sacked, which led him to join EA and fall down the rabbit hole to create the highly acclaimed American McGee's Alice!

American reflects on his amazing career in this honest and fascinating interview. He discusses how his childhood helped shape his career, what he learned from John Carmack at id Software and how his sacking was a blessing in disguise. 

American also reflects on his new life in China, and how it compares to the US. He also discusses the latest developments on his third Alice title: Alice Asylum.
