Alice: Madness Returns Shots Are (Yes!) Mad

Cloud computing, right there

I’ll just do a little checklist here. We’ve got enormous teapots pouring out molten metal, a glutinous tar baby, Alice poking around a Victorian imagining of the Orient with a unicorn on a stick, and a Chesire cat who’s stayed largely unchanged from how he appeared in the first American McGee’s Alice even though he was killed in that game.

Alice: Madness Returns Footage Is Gorgeous

Alice pays a visit to The Fortress of RPSolitude.

Back in the year 2000 (which was ELEVEN YEARS AGO, fact fans), I enjoyed American McGee’s Alice comprehensively, like you might a bacon sandwich.

Finally we have some in-game footage of this summer’s sequel, Alice: Madness Returns, and it gives me great pleasure to say that it’s looking swell. Follow me down the rabbit hole, ladies and gents.

It’s Dreamy Weather: New Alice Teaser

Like most teenagers, Alice didn't react well to being carded.

American McGee’s Alice 2, aka Alice: Madness Returns has a new teaser out, which I spotted during my morning patrol of VG24/7. You can watch it below. Hurry! You’re late! You’re late, for a very important date! No time to say hello, good-bye! You’re late, you’re late, you’re late!
You’re late and when you wave, you lose the time you save!

McGee’s Alice: Teaser Site, Trailer, Date

EDIT: Turns out the trailer is fan-made, and not official in any way. Which is kind of a shame, because it’s awesome.

The new Alice game, which will be called Return Of American McGee’s Alice, is miles off, being set for release in 2011. It is being developed by Shanghai studio, Spicy Horse. There’s not much more to go on at present, other than the teaser site, and a brilliantly creepy teaser trailer, posted below.
