Hello monsieurs and mesdames,
a great game appeared in 2011 and it was shamefully underrated and overlooked - Alice: Madness Returns.
It's a beautiful 3D platformer with an intriguing story woven around the original Alice in Wonderland and masterfully presented with regard to graphics, dialogues as well as voice acting.
On the surface it looks very cute but there are some dark undercurrents beneath the facade - Alice's guilt about her family's death, her abuse in the asylum, a drunk nurse blackmailing Alice.
I've been playing it for quite a few hours now and apart from a bug that was remedied by a direct .INI edit this game is flawless.
There is a similar praising thread on Steam Forums
Where someone compares Alice to Psychonauts.
