Alice’s Madness Returns
Yes, that Alice. The Alice from American McGee’s Alice. For realzies. We’ve known for a while now that a game probably was in the works at Mr. McGee’s Spicy Horse, but here is the legit official word. Oh, and here’s a teaser, too.
So that’s that, and here’s this: the game is targeting a 2011 release, and it’ll be out on the PC, PS3 and 360. Press release!!!
“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.’ “
WOO!! Let’s just hope this is better than Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland abortion. Yes, I know they have nothing to do with each beyond the brand, and, yes, I just but that in there so I could say something mean. Sue me.
