Alice Doesn’t Live Here: BigHead Bash

Why is he shooting a ghostly copy of his own face?

There’s probably some irony in the latest title from a man whose name appeared in big huge letters on the front of so many game boxes involving the word ‘BigHead’, but I’ll be damned if I can tell what it is.

BigHead BASH is the latest move from American McGee and his Spicy Horse studio, and it’s a forthcoming social network game. I don’t know whether this means Alice: Madness Returns wasn’t the hoped-for success or just that McGee fancies a go at the Facebook goldrush before it dries up, but I do know that it’s a side-scrolling 3D shooter with tons of shooty-jumpy activity.

Rabbiting On: The Pretty Madness Of Alice 2

She puts horses heads in people's beds. Also, on sticks.

I believe we’ve only been wandering the dark realms of pre-rendered and weakman footage for USA McWow’s belated sequel to olden wierdo-actioner Alice until now, so ’tis a fine thing to finally present proper in-game videos of Madness Returns. It is it wonderland or ponderousland? Oof, that didn’t work at all.

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. Spoiler!

It’ll be swell if this game is good, both because we’ll be able to have fun poking through these wonderful environments, and I’ll be able to use “Carroll Singing” as a headline. Screens after the jump.

Alice: Madness Returns, McGee Comments

In ten years she hasn't learned to wash a knife.

More details have emerged about American McGee’s sequel to Alice, Alice: Madness Returns. It’s only stills, concept art, and rendered trailer at the moment, as Kieron broke down last week, but it’s looking pretty interesting, with some smart design, and here an interview with creator McGee by Gametrailers. It’s below.

Alice Returns New Trailer, Notes, Make-Up

The trailer's much more messed up than this.

More on Alice: Madness Returns from the Tokyo Game Show. It’s been quiet since its announcement, but the there’s new “stuff” including a genuinely somewhat messed up trailer, which you’ll find below. And since it’s been ages since I’ve done one, I’ve written a second-by-second analysis of the trailer for your delectation. Also, linked to someone doing Alice Make-up. And the Sisters’ of Mercy, because I just can’t stop myself…

Debbie American McGee’s Alice Returns

Excellent bighairosity

EA just did a thing with some guys, and at that thing they totally said they were making some new some stuff with some other guys. One piece of said stuff is a sequel to “cult hit” American McGee’s Alice. The man who always puts his name on the box now seems to not be putting his name on the box – this will be called simply Alice: Madness Returns.

Details and a rather icky, but also slightly silly, teaser trailer are below.

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.

There’s not much more to go on at present, other than the teaser site, and a brilliantly creepy teaser trailer, posted below.
