Eleven years after we first ventured to Wonderland with Alice, vorpal blade in hand, American McGee is releasing a sequel to it’s blood, bloody take on the tale down the rabbit hole. Alice: Madness Returns finds Alice no longer at the asylum but still tormented by the memory of her parent’s deaths. She escapes to Wonderland only to find it under the influence of a new evil.
American McGee’s Alice was only released for PC and MAC but this sequel will be finding it’s way to consoles as well (XBox 360, PS3). Personally, this is one of the most anticipated games of the year as it is reported to releases late 2011. The first Alice game is to blame for dragging me into third-person adventure titles, and maybe making me a little obsessed with blades. Something about a knife-wielding chick battling insanity connected with my 13-year old self. And honestly, I’ve never needed a minute of therapy. At least that’s what the voices in my head tell me…
Check out the trailer and judge for yourself, but it looks like Alice will have her work cut out for her cleaning Wonderland up, again.
Wonderland looked fine before Alice came along. She ruins everything. Eh, at least HOT TOPIC has another reason to stay in business.
