As you've already read, American McGee is returning to the twisted world of Alice with Madness Returns. The plot sees Alice released from the Rutledge Asylum and put into the care of a London psychiatrist. Alice still has her demented hallucinations so she returns to Wonderland as her last salvation. Unfortunately for her, something has gone wrong with Wonderland while she was away so she has to save it as well as herself through her adventure.
American McGee and crew aren't really ready to talk specifics, but he did state during his presentation at the EA Showcase yesterday that "like the first game, [Madness Returns] is going to focus very heavily on amazing art, awesome story, interesting puzzle, adventure and action gameplay." RJ Berg, the writer on the original game, will be back for the sequel too.
So yeah, this sounds pretty amazing. Along with the teaser and screens, Electronic Arts and developer Spicy Horse have launched the official website, Facebook page and Twitter account called @The White Rabbit that you can follow (HAR HAR) for updates to the game. What do you all think of the new Alice game?
Alice: Madness Returns is set to come out next year for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
