Just a pair days after Alice: Madness Returns disappeared with out warning from Steam, it is again on the storefront, and it seems that—as anticipated—the entire thing was a giant mistake.

It’s been a wild trip for American McGee’s twisted tackle Alice in Wonderland. It was delisted from Steam in 2016, apparently due to some verification issues with writer Electronic Arts. It returned earlier this yr however final week went poof but once more, this time with no discover or clarification. 

Even American McGee, founding father of developer Spicy Horse (and whose title adorns Madness Returns’ predecessor) wasn’t certain what occurred, though he speculated that someone, someplace, had seemingly simply pushed the flawed button.

As it seems, he was right. “One of our team mistakenly instructed Support to ‘shut down everything’ when the topic was ‘Akaneiro’—wrongly thinking other games (like A:MR) had been moved to a Mysterious Inc account,” McGee tweeted. “Yikes.”

Mysterious Inc. is McGee’s present “business headquarters,” which gives merchandise like books, artwork, and different merchandise on the market. Spicy Horse closed its doorways in 2016.

While Madness Returns is returned, American McGee’s Alice continues to be not out there on Steam (though it wasn’t out there there within the first place), and sadly McGee doesn’t know where to get it nowadays. Grimm continues to be listed, however it’s not being provided on the market; it is not clear whether or not that is linked to the Akaneiro accident, however it’s a comparatively current change, because the Wayback Machine signifies that Grimm was out there for buy as not too long ago as April 7. (It ‘s nonetheless out there for buy on GOG.) Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, the game that began this complete factor (and which I truly moderately preferred in its pre-release days) can be nonetheless listed on Steam however not truly in the stores.
