The Wonderland that you knew from childhood has gone horribly wrong ... again. This is the follow-up to designer American McGee's twisted take on the classic Lewis Carroll tale. Designed with the same dark style of the original, but now featuring entirely new visuals, story and game design, Alice: Madness Returns follows Alice on a journey through a wildly corrupted and shattered Wonderland to uncover the truth behind her haunted past and tortured psyche.
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.

This has to be the best storyline to a 'fairytale' game ever!

Honestly, if the game is any where near as good as the original- the graphics really don't matter.

It is stunning, in the same way that the original is stunning, and how the original Tomb raiders are stunning, however, in terms of graphics, i think they are not final, i am not saying their bad... just not as good as I expected them to be. However, the art direction is fantastic

But I just find an urge to like the twisted demented sotryline and design. So unique, and actually sort of makes sense...
A girl who "magicically" finds this fantasy like world full of odd creatures and mushrooms. Sounds very much like a phsycological illusion to me :pi: How was the gameplay like in the first?

... very much like the classic Tomb Raiders, in some sense. Well, it the same sense as Resident Evil to the classics... you'll get what I mean if you play it. :p

It's a beautiful game- with fantastic gameplay. I adore it. :D

I fail to see how that's a problem.



Do not resurrect a dead thread.
→ [I]Here on TombRaiderForums, we have something called the 'Three Month Bump' rule - basically, a thread is considered dead if it hasn't been posted in for three months. If you stumble upon the thread but haven't anything worthwhile to contribute (such as a comment that isn't really necessary or to respond to someone on the first page of the thread), it's best to just leave the thread alone. However, if you've something worth contributing such as news (if it's a video game thread) or another active discussion, it's all right to go ahead and continue the thread, just as long as you inform members why you're bumping it.

I did .:wve:

If there can be seperate threads for different sub-genres or categories for games, then once a thread dies I see no problem with creating a new one to induce hype once again, an official title of the new game is going to bring in more posts than a topic that people have already went through. A new Dead Rising thread was recently made, but I didn't bat an eyelid towards linking my previous Dead Rising thread.

With such a hypothesis there wouldn't be a third Resident Evil or Silent Hill general threads :wve:

What surprises me though, it's the fact that one month ago it was the E3 and we heard nothing about Alice... And now, all of a sudden, in the middle of July, we start having informations...

And I can't say I'm impressed with the storyline revealed so far... I read the information we have and all I see is : More of the same with better graphics. Alice goes back to Wonderland because of mental issues... Again? So all we've been through in the first game to save her mind meant nothing?

The game's website is up.
alicemadnessreturns.com

The trailer is in better quality there and the game info is a bit different.

Eleven years ago a horrific fire took Alice’s family from her and left her terribly burned—and her mind terribly scarred. Afterwards she was confined to Rutledge Asylum, struggling to come to terms with her demons by slipping into her fantasy world of Wonderland. Now, after ten years, she has finally secured her release--yet she still bears the heavy psychological burden of that tragic event.

In Alice: Madness Returns, Alice is released from the asylum to a London psychiatrist’s care. As nightmarish hallucinations continue to haunt her and invade her reality, she seeks to understand her torment in order to recover herself. Her mind in tatters, she is unable to resolve the fear and neuroses prompted by her strange memories, dreams, and visions. Her relocation to London seems only to add to their number and intensity.

Perhaps she’ll do better in Wonderland. She always has. She travels there, seeking what the “real” world can’t provide: security, knowledge, and the truth about the past. But in her absence, Wonderland too has suffered. Something has gone horribly wrong, and now a great evil is descending upon what once was her beautiful refuge.

Can Alice save Wonderland—and herself—from the madness that consumes them both?


Can't wait! :jmp:

Isaac
22-07-10, 20:42
It confirms what I said : More of the same.

Don't take me wrong, I love American McGee Alice, I still play it from time to time... But from what I see, all the trouble we went through in the first game to save Alice from her own demons meant nothing. We all saw her leaving the Asylum happily like if she was saved... Yet she's still tormented? lol.

All of this because of her black cat.

I managed to get a hold of the first game, and despite seeing the thing in it's entirety through youtube videos, it holds nothing in comparison to playing it first hand, I absolutely love the art style, the characterisation...just everything about it. I'm not too far in, about halfway through The Skool, but I've always wanted to experience a twisted Wonderland, and here it is! :D

Needless to say I don't have the original game, but thanks to the wonders of the internet... Still haven't finished the game, though...

I'm mostly impressed with all the physics that her clothing and hair has!

Alice's model makes TRU Lara's model look like absolute crap. Just compare Alice's hair to Lara's ugly ponytail.

If that's what Alice will look in-game, then I'm really happy she's not ugly. I was affraid they would make her extremely ugly for some reason. :o

It was Caterpillars Plot revisited. It was that area, though I'm not sure of the name. It was after *spoiler* you defeat the Jabberwock *spoiler*.

And I agree with GenyaArikado, Alice looks uglier in this game, her face is too round.

Well, somebody at the American McGee forums got the magazine, but can't post scans on the forum itself.
This is what he/she posted instead of the scans, summarizing the article and providing some input.

A new Toy
The Vorpal Blade returns as your primary weapon, the combat apparently heavily inspired by Legend Of Zelda. However, there is another weapon that is used in the demo that was shown. A Pepper Grinder that functions a s a sort of cannon is described as a rather powerful weapon. Perhaps this means we get to see the Duchess again, this time gain her Grinder as a prize for her Defeat.

Speaking of Fighting, Alice had two defense moves to be spoken of. The first is the butterfly move we have been told about, the other, she can shrink down, avoid attack, and then grow back to her her normal size. This was demonstrated as she fought off card gurds, tho another enemy was described. Black slime things that represent Alice's fears. Also, the Executioner Card Guard who is invincible and stalks you through the rotted meat and crumbling Queensland, where, i might add, the queen is heard, demanding Alice me chopped into pieces. There is also a giant chess piece that is part of a puzzle were i suppose you have to move it.

Also, a collection system has been introduced to game play. You have to collect memory fragment that will reveal what truly happened the night of the fire that killed Alice's family.

One other mechanic that returns from the first game is Alice using her dress as a parachute to fly about.

Uhmm. Guys. You may want to check AmericanMcGee.com

At long last, the media blackout has ended and we are finally able to talk about the greatness that is Alice: Madness Returns (http://alicemadnessreturns.com/). Except… we’re not really going to talk very much about it just yet.
You see, there is still a pretty good span of time between now and the launch date. There are still levels to be built, testing to be done, and tons more things to do. (Yes, that means the vague rumors of its completion are false. Sorry, Charlie.) To tide you over until the Big Day, we have lots of events you can take part in.
For instance, if you happened to be on our forum (http://www.americanmcgee.com/forum/) this past week, and your registration included the option to receive newsletters from the administrators of the forum, you would have been one of the first to get a special clue – a riddle, if you will – that promises to take you on an enormously fun ride even before the launch date.
And by “fun”, we mean “mind-bending”, “challenging”, “frustrating”, and “immensely rewarding in both a personal and material sense”.
If you know what we mean. >wink<
Your best course of action is to make sure that you are following both American (http://twitter.com/americanmcgee) and the White Rabbit (http://twitter.com/thewhiterabbit) on Twitter, that you’re signed up on and properly have Liked the Facebook pages (listed to the left), that you have registered on the forum (of course), and also that you know who you’re dealing with. (Yes, that’s a Hint.) Know your story well, and you may just come out a head.
Check back regularly with our snazzy new format to find out the latest. You never know what you might find here that you won’t find anywhere else.
Now, the weird part is, when I typed in the words in the quotation marks into google, i got shutupanddance.com/american. Which I find very weird.

EDIT: Also, the shutupanddance site has a photo which the americanmcgee.com site didn't? I'm slightly interested...

IGN have also added a preview (http://pc.ign.com/articles/112/1120722p1.html) of the demo they saw [No Video]
It's been 10 years since American McGee's Alice was released on the PC, but now it's finally getting a sequel. Announced for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC back in July, Alice Madness Returns was present at EA's Tokyo Game Show showcase and we actually got to see some of the game.

Madness Returns follows the events of the previous title but since it's been ten years here's a refresher: Alice's entire family is killed in a horrific fire and she's driven mad by the tragic loss. Ten years after checking into an insane asylum for treatment she then tumbles down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, which becomes even more twisted due to her mental state. Distressed by the condition it's in, she sets out to save Wonderland and herself.

In the sequel, Alice is back in London, released from the asylum under a psychiatrist's care. A year has passed, but she's not doing much better, and neither is Wonderland. The demo began with a plain-Jane Alice on a rooftop in London. The city's landscape reflected the dark tone of the game as the buildings were plagued by a monotone color palate and slightly twisted architecture. A few short moments later the heroine was falling into Wonderland as a transformed version of herself with brighter green eyes and longer hair. McGee explained in the presentation that Alice can be an "idealized version of herself" in Wonderland, so she's more beautiful and stronger there than in the real world.

The dreary cityscape of London is a stark contrast to the vibrant delusions of Wonderland. From a lush jungle decorated with dominoes, dice and jacks to an industrial factory overflowing with lava, it's clear that a lot of effort has been put into creating every section of Wonderland. You'll traverse each area with relatively simple platforming until you stumble across an enemy. Alice still wields her trusty Vorpal blade in the sequel, but a pepper grinder, teapot and hobby horse are also added to her arsenal. The idea is that every enemy is its own puzzle and you need to determine their weak points so you can destroy them. The example I saw was a bunch of homicidal teapots that infested the factory level. Like a strange miniature tank, the teapots were taken down with a mixture of ranged (the pepper grinder functions as a machine gun) and close-up (with the Vorpal blade) fighting that was aimed at a glowing red eye in the center of its body.

Apart from fighting, Alice also has other abilities she can acquire in Wonderland. During the demo Alice ran across a giant version of the iconic "Drink Me" bottle that was forming a pool of purple liquid in the forest. As we all know at this point, Alice can't resist following directions, so she gulps down some of the concoction and shrinks. This obviously unlocks the shrinking ability, which is useful when Alice needs to journey through tiny tunnels.

It's far too early to pass any sort of judgment, but I did leave the presentation more impressed with the art style than anything else. Still, the fantastic visuals are a good enough reason to keep an eye on Alice Madness Returns. You can expect to return to Wonderland sometime in 2011.
They don't say much about the gameplay itself, rather the graphics+art style. But the game doesn't come out until next December, so they have plenty of time to polish things!

I heard about this being in the works quite some time ago, I'm so glad to see it is finally coming around! I didn't actually play the original until 2007 lol... When it came out my parents wouldn't let me play it and when I was old enough I forgot about it for a long time. First time through I really fell in love with it, it's really what a dark Alice should be. I heard they were going to make a film based off American McGee's but I'm not sure if that's still actually going to happen if it was at all in the first place.

Anyway, I'm really excited for the next game, it ought to be absolutely stunning with today's graphics! Even though I still really love the visuals of the original too, no matter how old it was lol. The artwork is just brilliant, I love it. :D

Blonde again? Her hair was never blonde, other than Disney's interpretation (and that crap of Burton's). I'm so glad they're sticking to the true original version.

I have to say, Wonderland is looking beautifully stunning, and then horribly hellish. :D So excited for this game.

I definitely agree... I am not a huge fan of Disney or Burton's interpretation. I definitely hated Burton's most though lol...

I really loved the original Alice game by American Mcgee so I'm really looking forward to this! I'm a little late to the party but, is there an expected release date yet?

That didn't come from Disney. Alice was portrayed as a long-haired blonde girl ever since the first publication with illustrations by John Tenniel, who was asked to illustrate the book by Lewis Carroll. There was always speculation about whether or not Alice is based on real-life Alice Liddell (one of the girls who Carroll first told the Alice story to), who indeed had dark hair, which might be the source of the idea of a 'brunette' Alice in American McGee's vision.

Either that, or McGee made her hair dark simply to complete her 'goth' look, which wouldn't be convincing if she had blonde hair.

No official release date is confirmed, but it is planned to be a 2011 (the ultimate year of gaming) release.

EDIT: @Dustie, I knew about Alice Liddell, but I didn't know about those illustrations. Then again, it would have cost and used a lot more ink to have filled out the dark hair for each picture.

And yes, a blonde, gothic, dagger-weilding Alice doesn't come across as a particularly menacing or realistic either. :D

I recommend checking out americanmcgee.com the recent posts there provide links to different articles (the msnbc one is the original source of the trailer, andas thus has a few new screens.

What's with the new outfit Alice is wearing in some of those screens? :eek: It looks gorgeous.

It's like she wears her normal blue dress during beautiful, luscious Wonderland, and the red dress during Hellish Wonderland. Perhaps there will be switches between the two, or it may be a change that occurs in the game as the story reaches more of a climax.

17-02-11, 02:04
I heard on American McGee's forums that you can earn new dresses (possibly while collecting teeth, it's been confirmed that Alice will be collecting teeth, which can be used to buy weapon upgrades and the sorts).

You weren't the only to suggest that, and I personally think a motif like that would add a lot to the psychoanalytical aspect of the game (which was so much fun during the first game).

There doesn't seem to be evidence that Alice was meant to be a brunette, so one can't blame Disney for making her hair blonde. They might have sweetened her up, but the hair colour wasn't a part of the process, contrary to what American McGee's Alice fans seem to believe.

American Mcgee specified that there would be three teaser trailers. To me that means that any new trailers we see will actually have gameplay. (but there's no confirmation on that)

18-02-11, 08:01
^ I see. Well, I'm personally satisfied with what we've been given. Most games usually get only one good quality CG trailer and that's it. Having three is a real treat. :)

I like that it looks like EA is taking this game seriously and pouring money on the project. By the quality of the trailers you can tell they are really trying to push this game and create hype.

I really don't have a good opinion on the super long jumps, but I can't really say it just from the demo. :D

I remember that at the time that the original came out I thought this game was not my cup of tea. However since then I have spoken to many people who thought it was a great game. So I picked up the original in the box on Ebay (cost me almost $100). I just got it in the mail and loaded it up and will post a video or two of it if you guys would like to see what the original was like.

I would love the play the original first, but yeah $100... I am not gonna spend that on a game especially one that old.

I think once a game is not being sold anymore by the developer and they are not making money off of it then they should release free to download. Not like they are losing money and it might draw more people in especially with a sequel coming out. Or they should re-release it in HD or just for the newer OS as a digital download for a cheaper price or something. Even more so when it is a game like this where there is a huge gap in years between the first one and its sequel.

Though that is just my opinion on the matter.

To be fair though, most every game that old is not worth more than it was when it was released. This one, Daggerfall, Planescape:Torment and some others are priced quite high in relation to the vast majority of the older games. I buy a lot of old games on ebay and get many (in the box and sometimes new) for less than $10.

And so far the game is very interesting, and very strange (in a good way). I am at this time uploading a video to youtube of the opening cinematic and some brief, early game play.

True. And yeah I have seen older games for under $10, hell I got tr1-6 for like $0.25. It also depends on how rare the game is too. I'm sure the price will continue to go up for Alice especially with the sequel coming out.

I personally would love the play so many older games, that are just dead and long gone, and hard to find for sale. Or they just don't work on current OS systems. Like the elder scrolls games, I would love the play the first 2 just to see what they are like.

I did play the demo for the first Alice and I liked it, it was fun, I love the darkness of the game.

Youtube is always an option if you want just the story to watch someone play through the game.
