OBS Staff member Gigi has written up a blog about Alice in Wonderland:
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland MMO Announced for Mid 2010Virtual Fairground announced yesterday that it is developing Wonderland MMO, a virtual world and MMO game for teenage girls based on the famous story Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.
Wonderland MMO started development in 2008 and is set for launch mid-2010. As is the case with Virtual Fairground’s other MMO game production Club Galactik, the world and game are entirely Flash-based and will run directly from any browser.
With Wonderland MMO Virtual Fairground aims to create an online hang-out with a darkly romantic and mysterious style. We really want to create a different kind of online game experience for girls, says Ilja Goossens of Virtual Fairground. There are already so much sugary sweet virtual worlds for this demographic or those that are just about shopping and buying things. We believe girls have more varied interests and preferences. Something that is clearly proven by other media such as books, tv-shows and movies.
â€œAs a company we have a philosophy of building worlds and MMO games based on existing brands and stories, continues Maarten Brands. So we looked at some of the classics and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was one of the stories that popped out, something that we could really use to create our vision of an alternative online game for girls.
