American McGee’s Alice

American McGee’s Alice. Third person computer game based on the Alice characters.

Plot:
Alice’s house is burned down by a fire which also kills her family. She tries to commit suicide, and becomes catatonic, so she is shut up in Rutledge Asylum, where she is mistreated by the workers.
After ten years in the asylum, the White Rabbit summons Alice to help save a twisted version of Wonderland, ruled by the evil Queen of Hearts. She encounters rather nastier versions of many of her Wonderland and Looking Glass friends: the Caterpillar, the Hatter, the Tweedles and the Cheshire Cat; who serves as Alice’s companion- appearing to ‘guide’ her with rather cryptic comments.

Alice has several weapons within the game, including some based on toys: jacks, dice, a jack-in-the-box and playing cards. There’s plenty of blood for those that way inclined…

I have both the PC and mac versions: the mac game no longer runs on my newer machines, but the PC one plays fine on my boyfriend’s computer. The mac cover has Alice with a knife rather than the cards shown on my PC copy.

There is talk both of a sequel, and of a film based on the first game.
