If you are looking for a darker and more twisted take to the family friendly Disney Alice in Wonderland. Then the sequel to the dark and twisted American McGee’s Alice will probably exactly want you need.
The game is set ten years after the conclusion of the first game and introduces us to a tormented Alice, coming to terms with the dark and twisted events that transpired. We follow Alice as she journeys through a wildly corrupted and shattered Wonderland to uncover the truth behind her haunted past and tortured psyche.
As always there are lots of promises of amazing environments and cunnings puzzles to solve, all nicely sprinkled with fun characters and cool weaponry. Of course the will question will be if it lives up to these promises.
“Alice is a classic fiction, infinitely rich with memorable characters, places and experiences. Our approach to Alice: Madness Returns takes this colorful world and reinvents it with psychotic personalities and pervasive insanity” said American McGee, Spicy Horse Games Co-Founder and Senior Creative Director. “We can’t wait to share our vision with Alice in Wonderland fans and gamers around the world.”
Alice: Madness Returns takes place 10 years after the conclusion of the original game, with Alice struggling to recover from the emotional trauma of losing her entire family in a fatal fire. After spending a decade institutionalized in an insane asylum, she is finally released to the care of a psychiatrist who just may be able to help her conquer the nightmarish hallucinations that still haunt her. Alice embarks on a mission to root out the true cause of her family’s mysterious death, jumping from a gloomy and stark London to a rich and provocative Wonderland.
“In 2000, we launched a cult hit on the PC with American McGee’s Alice. Ten years later, I’m pleased to announce American is back on board leading the top-rate talent at Spicy Horse Games to create this sequel,” said David DeMartini, Senior Vice President and General Manager of EA Partners. “The Alice in Wonderland fiction continues to be a fan favorite all over the world. We can’t wait for them to experience the next chapter with Alice: Madness Returns.”
