Alice: Madness Returns debuts

I fondly remember the PC game American McGee’s Alice, a little game by, amazingly enough, American McGee way back in 2000. The odd take on Wonderland and its containing cast of characters is set to return next year in Alice: Madness Returns, melding the original game’s style with totally new visuals — as seen in the trailer above and screenshots in the gallery — and a brand new story.

Set to launch on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, Madness Returns makes an adventure out of Alice’s attempts to uncover the truth behind her haunted past. Picking up 10 years after the ending of the original game, battles will ensue, weapons may be wielded, villains shall be vanquished, and oddball characters will be encountered. Just a day in the life of Alice and her mental struggles.
