Didn't they already show this on The Escapist? I can't wait for this, looks so cool! And i wonder what she has done.

Ah, I find it looks a bit like Folklore. And a bit of music from unexpect wouldn't go bad with this one, like wine with a good steak.

Looks interesting if it turns out well excuted. Nice to see something different - or at least an attempt at it :).

Tim Burton, pay very close attention.

My thoughts exactly sigh.

Hmmm... completely uninformative of the actual game, and I hope it atleast doesn't ruin the original game it was based on.

But what the heck, it looks freaky and might turn out okay.

what did i just see XD i dont even know if that was a game

I'm excited for this game, but this particular teaser/trailer is my least favorite so far. Does anyone else feel like the end was just tacked on to say "hey, we have blood in this game!" ?

Pretty sure it was already posted on the Escapist

The effects of Second Hand pot Smoking

Nope, that's actually one of its main draws. It's a dark version of the Alice fairy tale. And a sequel to a very awesome, albeit dated, game:

THEY NEED TO MAKE A MOVIE OUT OF THE ORIGINAL GAME.

Now that the most obvious statement has been stated by me - I can't wait for this game!

Omg cant waaait! i just loved American Mcgee´s Alice! hopefully this will be equally good!

.........holy crap!

That was the creepiest thing I've ever seen!

Cant freaking wait, loved the first one so much and this looks to continue the series atmosphere

Certainly looks like my kinda game...

AssassinJoe:
.........holy crap!

You have been living under a decidedly uncreepy rock most of your life if that's the case.

Soz double post

Huh, this is a follow-up to an fairly old game if memry serves...

Hmm, that doesn't really look as dark as the previous, I hope it's just the trailer.

That's definitely not the intention, considering how they have to FIGHT to keep the blood levels DOWN.

No, I think they went for a sudden round of Eye Scream to unsettle and scare the viewer. It worked. [shudder]

AssassinJoe:
.........holy crap!

That was the creepiest thing I've ever seen!

I can fix that if you want...

11 years.
I am seriously hoping they do not ruin it. I am back to playing the first one now.

Take a well loved fairytale and make a dark twisted spin on it. That's already so cliched it hurts.

But make a second game... which is just the same crap all over again? There's a word for that.

It's pathetic.

Do they really think we haven't seen the little girl grinning with blood splattered on her face about a thousand times before? Do they really expect us to be surprised that the world gets hellish when the girl already looks like she's just been refused entry to an alternative/emo club? Do they expect us to believe that caterpillars sound like that? or is that a taste of what their attempt to pass of as 'atmospheric music' is going to be like?

Thanks but no thanks. I like my games with some originality, and this game doesn't even know how to read a dictionary.

The original game was 11 years old, hardly a cliche back then. In fact I don't remember very many video games so pitch black and comical in those days. You can't remake a game and expect it to be original, it's impossible.

I think this envisioning of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is supposed to be more like an close adaption of the source material, concerned primarily with providing a more accurate depiction of the series than Disney's portrayals of the license. The original Lewis Carroll story was basically a "fuck you" to the evolution of advanced mathematical concepts and the "logic" that followed them, taking the idea of a stable, logical universe, and turning it on its head until barely a shred of reality remained.

If that isn't adult and "twisted" already then I don't know what it is...

"If that isn't adult and "twisted" already then I don't know what it is..."

A donkey show...now that is both "Adult" and "twisted".

But seriously, I can't wait for this game; it will be great if it is just 1/2 as good as the last one. It is nice to see that the new Alice is a goth, and I can't wait for the sick, twisted things they they do to a story that is already a metaphor for hallucinogenic drugs, insanity, and the most evil thing of all...Disney. I almost wish disney had a hand in this; I would love to remove Mickey's eyes with a rusty knife...while he is still alive and kicking.

JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEsus fucking christ XD

why does everyone interpret her adventures as scary ? XD

shes a little girl obserbving wierdass shit XD

i blame the fucking ..... dude who made nightmare christmas vid.. tom burton XD

JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEsus....

I want this game sooo bad.

I dunno about this trailer though. The mood set by the other teasers were totally different. And in my opinion, better.

Captain Placeholder:
THEY NEED TO MAKE A MOVIE OUT OF THE ORIGINAL GAME.

They were going to a loosely based movie of American McGee's Alice a couple years ago using Sarah Michelle Gellar as the lead, but the project lost steam once Disney decided to do THEIR Alice. I can't even find the IMDB site for it anymore, that's how dead the project is.

I've got a good feeling about this one. Hell, I STILL play the original Alice from time to time.

Almost right.

But if we're going for monstrous face mutilation, then...

Check out the mid 60s Czech movie "Alice"
It is all stop motion with strange visuals. Has no soundtrack and just loud background noises. veeeerrrry unsettling. It is on netflix.
Worth a watch IMO
