American McGee's Alice is a game released for Mac OS and Microsoft Windows that is based directly off of Lewis Carroll's classic book, "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland".

Story[edit | edit source]

Following what took place in the story, Alice's house is burned down in a fire, killing her parents, and causing her as the only survivor to feel guilty and suicidal. She is taken into Rutledge Asylum where, years later, she is summoned by the White Rabbit to aid a radically altered Wonderland that is under the despotic rule of the Queen of Hearts. The Cheshire Cat serves as her constant companion through a Wonderland that has been corrupted by Alice's insanity, appearing to guide her with cryptic clues.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The game takes place in nine provinces which comprise the horribly corrupted Wonderland, with Alice starting off in the Village Of The Doomed. Along the way she encounters characters that include altered versions of those from Alice's Adventures In Wonderland, and picks up weapons to use against her adversaries which include Jacks O'Death, Demon Dice, razor-sharp cards, and Jack-in-the-Box bombs.
