Music videos of the band will be featured throughout TuacaCon including songs from their upcoming album that have not been heard anywhere else before.
From EA and Spicy Horse, Alice: Madness Returns updates their story of Alice in Wonderland with a twisted and mentally ill Alice, 11 years after the original game, American McGee’s Alice.
Based solely on this trailer the images are dark and disturbing, and this game is definitely not for kids seeking out Disney fun and images. It’s also far more gruesome than Tim Burton’s movie, with blood, gore and violence aplenty. That said, for the appropriate player, the graphics are fantastic and true to the American McGee image of Alice in Wonderland.
Release date: June 14, 2011
Platform: Playstation3, XBox 360 and PC
