[Book] The Art of Alice: Madness Returns

I’m now watching several game walkthrough videos on youtube. I’ve been wanted to play those games but never have a change to do so. The best way to enjoy the games without playing is to watch gamecasters play them! 😀 Anyway, i’m not going to talk about where to watch the video (because obviously they are on youtube) but i’m going to review the art book of the game, “Alice: Madness Returns” by American McGee.

The game is awesome as well as the book! I love the distorted Wonderland and how dark it can become.The designers of this game are very good at taking “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through The Looking Glass” books by Lewis Carroll and drove them into madness. After Alice got released from the asylum, she went back to Wonderland for the 4th time and the Wonderland has changed according to her mental state. (Alice went to Wonderland for the 1st and 2nd time in the original books and then the 3rd time in the previous game, “American McGee’s Alice”)

What i like the most in this book are the costume and weapon designs for Alice. In my opinion, i think they should add more concept artworks. Anyway, it’s great and i love it to the max! Highly recommended for Alice’s in Wonderland fans who also like Gothic and dark theme. 🙂
