Alice: Madness Returns is a psychological action-adventure video game developed by Spicy Horse and published by Electronic Arts. It is the sequel to the 2000 game American McGee's Alice. The game's story is set in the 19th century, following a young girl named Alice Liddell who suffers from a severe case of post-traumatic stress disorder, as a result of the tragic death of her family in a fire. The game follows Alice as she returns to the fantastical world of Wonderland, a place that holds many memories of her past, in order to uncover the truth behind her family's death and to find closure.

The gameplay of Alice: Madness Returns is a combination of third-person action, platforming, and puzzle-solving. Players control Alice as she navigates through the game's twisted and fantastical version of Wonderland, fighting off enemies with a variety of weapons and using her shrinking ability to access small areas. The game's combat system is fast-paced and action-packed, with players able to chain together different attacks and abilities to create powerful combos. The game also features a wide variety of enemies, each with their own unique abilities and weaknesses, requiring players to adapt their tactics and approach accordingly.

One of the most striking elements of the game is its visuals. The game's art style is heavily influenced by the original works of Lewis Carroll and the illustrations of John Tenniel, as well as the Victorian era, resulting in a unique and striking visual style that sets it apart from other games. The game's environments are richly detailed and diverse, ranging from the dark and twisted versions of familiar locations from the original story, such as the Mad Hatter's tea party and the Queen of Hearts' castle, to completely new and original locations.

The game's development was led by American McGee, the creator of the original American McGee's Alice game. The development team aimed to create a game that would be a worthy successor to the original, while also expanding upon the core elements of the original game, such as its story and gameplay mechanics. The game's development was not without its challenges, with the team facing a number of technical difficulties and delays, but ultimately, the game was released to critical acclaim, with praise directed at its visuals, story, and gameplay mechanics.

Alice: Madness Returns was released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in 2011, and it was also available for Mac OS X in 2012. The game received generally positive reviews from critics, with many praising its visuals, story, and combat system, although some criticized it for its camera angles and platforming.

Overall, Alice: Madness Returns is a game that offers a thrilling and engaging experience to players. With its fast-paced combat system, rich and diverse environments, and striking visuals, it offers players a unique and memorable gaming experience. The game's story is also well done, exploring dark and mature themes while staying true to the source material. The game's development was challenging, but the final product is a game that is worthy of the Alice legacy and it's a game that will stick with players long after they've finished it.
Alice: Madness Returns is a 3rd-person action-adventure platform game from Spicy Horse, published in 2011 by Electronic Arts. Madness Returns is a sequel to American McGee's Alice from 2000. The game follows Alice Liddell, a girl suffering from unusual trauma, caused by a family tragedy. Alice lives in an orphanage for mentally traumatized orphans, and is under supervision of Dr. Angus Bumby. To get rid of the trauma, she once again falls into Wonderland, where a new evil force has corrupted it.

Alice believes that she is responsible for a fire that consumed her home and family, so she escapes into a twisted version of Wonderland.
A couple of years earlier, Alice was held at Rutledge Asylum for treatment, and she was actually able to conquer her doubts and fears. She was then released from the ward, and placed in the orphanage instead. This is where Madness Returns takes place. The year is 1875, the place is Victorian London. Alice still suffers from hallucinations and visions of Wonderland, but they are kept in check by doctor Angus.
One day, as Alice is walking outside of the orphanage, one of her hallucinations, a white cat, takes her to Wonderland once again. She arrives in a beautiful and magical forest with strange plants and flowers in vivid colors. Everything seems peaceful, but as moves through the landscape, the beauty becomes corrupted and twisted. Alice must fight several weird beings and she encounters all kinds of environments, both beautiful and scary.
