What is 'American Mcgee's Alice'....?
American Mcgee's Alice is a videogame franchise created by American Mcgee in the
year 2000. The first installment of the series was released for the PC, simply titled "American Mcgee's Alice", with fair sucesss.
The plot of the franchise follows the life of Alice Liddell, shortly after the events of the original Alice in Wonderland books by Lewis Carroll,
as she deals with the trauma of being the sole survivor of a deadly house fire. The event leaves her mental state in shambles, and she's commited to an
asylum, where she retreats back into the "Wonderland" of her mind.
The games take place in this twisted version of Wonderland, which Alice has to navigate in order to process her mental illness. Familiar characters from
the fairytale have been re-imagined, such as the Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter. Since the release of the first game, the Alice franchise has had a sequel in 2011
("Alice: Madness Returns"), and animated shorts in 2015 ("Alice: Otherlands"). The world of Wonderland still seems to be growing: there's been several proposals
of movie adaptation, planning for a third game in the works, and a growing line of merchandise.
