The Art of Alice: Madness Returns

The Art of Alice: Madness Returns: edited by Dave Marshall.

Introduction by American McGee.

Published by Dark Horse Books, 2011. Hardback.

ISBN-13: 978-1595826978

From the publisher:

Legendary game designer American McGee created one of the most visually arresting games of all time in Alice. Eleven years later, McGee returns with a sequel just as groundbreaking as his critically acclaimed classic – Alice: Madness Returns! Just in time for Madness Returns, Dark Horse and Spicy Horse Games invite Alice fans to take a journey through the wonderland of American McGee’s imagination for a look at this magnificent and disturbing world. With text by Madness Returns lead writer and executive producer R. J. Berg, and featuring an introduction by McGee, The Art of Alice offers an intimate look into the artwork behind this blockbuster interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s enduring masterpiece.

There’s some beautiful artwork in here, and it makes me want to go and play the game, but it’s PC. Bother.

Artists involved include Ken Wong, Sun Guoliang, Luis Melo, Hong Lei, Wu Yuehan, Ben Kerslake, Nako, Tyler Lockett, Fellipe Martins, Pu Jinsong, Wang Shenghua, Yuan Shaofeng and Jin Lei. I like the text explaining how the Chinese artists unfamiliar with Alice dealt with the project.

There’s a video review on Amazon if you want a look inside, and it’s buy-able on there of course: The Art of Alice: Madness Returns

    It’s also on Xbox and PS3 – with the added bonus of getting the original Alice game thrown in for nothing! I have the PC version. The art (and the dresses!) are very beaufiul, but the game is terribly done.

    I just bought it for the dresses……
