Alice: Madness Returns Game Trailer Is Emo Epic


It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 11 years since PC and Mac gamers first tripped balls on American McGee’s Alice, but it’s true, it’s been that long! And with a visual motif that was unlike anything players had seen before, not to mention the creepy ass musical score from NIN’s Chris Vrenna, it really is kind of a mystery why it’s taken so long for the gaming industry to venture back into Lewis Carroll’s warped Wonderland, with a sequel. Better late than never, I suppose.

Well here it is, finally, the game trailer for Alice: Madness Returns – yet another excuse to hide inside all day talking to cats. The story’s narrative takes place 11 years after the original game’s story, as Alice struggles with a flood of repressed memories that send her spiraling back down that infamous rabbit hole. Developed by McGee’s Spicy Horse company, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions of Alice: Madness Returns will contain a single-use download code that will allow players to embark on the original adventure of the first game. So really, it’s kind of like a video game Happy Hour: on console you’ll be receiving two drinks for the price of just one.

Due out June 14th, don’t miss American McGee’s Alice: Madness Returns -I mean, where else these days do you get to smoke hookah with a giant caterpillar besides my mom’s house?
