American McGee's Alice adds a thrilling and distinctive chapter
to the classic Lewis Carroll fantasy, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
In this unique adaptation, players take on the role of a wiser, more
resourceful Alice as she tries to free Wonderland from the domination
of the deranged Queen of Hearts. Only Alice is skilled enough to overcome
the capricious challenges of the Queen's sinister and demented Wonderland.
P.O.V. category veteran American McGee is the creative force behind
this 3rd-person 3-D action game. His Alice will expose an array of nasty
toys, vicious creatures, horrifying settings, compelling gameplay, devious
puzzles and numerous strangely familiar locations.
Players will explore more than 15 levels of the game. Each will teem
with ambient life and surreal effects. Based in part on the nearly limitless
potential of the classic Wonderland environments, each level will have
a distinctive feel and flow. McGee and his development partner, Rogue
Entertainment, have created a world of vivid interactivity, paying particular
attention to those details of character and location that allow for
the widest range of situations and conundrums in which to place the
As Alice moves through Wonderland she will be able to leap off ledges,
walk on walls, jump gracefully and work through a list of exotic specialty
moves based on environments or locations. Alice will also encounter
areas of Wonderland where she'll tower over objects and creatures, and
conversely, where she is but a speck on the landscape.
There will be over 30 active characters in American McGee's Alice.
The enigmatic Cheshire Cat will be Alice's confidant and guide through
Wonderland. A demented Mad Hatter, astute Caterpillar and the hostile
and abusive Tweedledee and Tweedledum are a sampling of "traditional"
characters Alice will interact with. McGee will also introduce some
new denizens that will range from the amusing to the bizarre. Alice's
creatures will not only be intelligent, but also cunning and agile.
Each character will act, react and interact as realistically as possible
and feature a large and diverse number of death animations including
burning, crushing, drowning, freezing and vaporizing.
American McGee's Alice is being built on the incomparable Quake
III Arena™ engine to achieve excellence in overall design and performance.
