Did You Know?


American McGee came up with the concept for Alice when he heard the song 'Trip Like I Do' by Crystal Method on his car radio. The lyrics "In the age of wonder", particularly reminded him of discussions with his then friend Marilyn Manson, about creating a twisted version of the Bible. In these conversations they'd also talked about alchemy and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Piecing these concepts together, McGee then pitched the idea to EA. See more »


The official 2-minute trailer for American McGee's Alice opens with a dialogue which apparently takes place between Alice and her physician at the Rutledge Asylum. Although Alice's story is known to take place in England, both Alice and the male voice in the trailer speak with American accents. The in-game Alice does indeed speak with a British accent.

The Queen of Hearts: Off with her head. Off with her head. Off with her head! Off... with... her... head. Off with her head. Off with her head. Off with her head. Off with her head. I rule Wonderland alone. Your interference will not be tolerated. This realm is for grown-ups. Raw, well-ordered, ruthless, careening off the jagged edge of reality. Self-pitying dreamers are not wanted here; they cannot survive here. You... fear the truth. You live in shadows. Your pathetic attempts to regain your sanity have failed. ...

Step through the glass, enjoy the nightmare
16 May 2006 | by sketchyninjaSee all my reviews

I finally beat it on Nightmare....oh the pain the pain. Had 40 saves by the end. Jabborwock sequence was the hardest though and i had to put the gamedown for a month or two to retain my sanity. A most excellent game but the jumping could use a little work especially during the end boss, gosh.

Definitely among the top ten video games of all time in the atmosphere and soundtrack department. Kudos to American Mcgee and Chris Vrenna. The only time I've ever bought the soundtrack to a video game he he. I love the way the moon looks in one of the scenes through the window. It looks just like the Cheshire Cat grin and now every time i look at the quarter moon, i think of the cat. Superb scenery throughout with shifting illogical puzzle like backgrounds. Combine that with the sinister yet eerily beautiful soundtrack and you have yourselves an experience that puts yourself in a nightmare version of Wonderland. Simply wonderful.
