Apple gamers may not be able to play Alice: Madness Returns when it comes out for consoles and PC, but that doesn’t mean we can’t read about it. EA announced today that Spicy Horse has launched the Alice: Madness Returns interactive storybook for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
Alice: Madness Returns is the continuation of American McGee’s Alice, which…cripes, was it ten years ago that I played that and reviewed it for Applelinks? That game reached the Mac thanks to Aspyr. I suppose a Mac version of Alice: Madness Returns is still possible, but until then, the interactive story book will have to hold you over.
The app tells the story of Alice’s time at Rutledge Asylum, where barbaric psychological treatments sent her spiraling into madness and have summoned visions of Wonderland. This app gives players the opportunity to discover a brand new chapter in Alice’s story through a truly unique experience.
The Alice: Madness Returns interactive storybook is now available as a free [wireless fees may apply] app on the iTunes App Store and is coming soon to the Android Market. The app also includes an offer for a $10.00 discount code [North American only] to players redeemable with the pre-order of Alice: Madness Returns for console or PC at the EA Store. For players without a mobile device, visit facebook.com/alicemadnessreturns to experience the full interactive storybook.
The Alice: Madness Returns app was penned and illustrated by the team at Spicy Horse, and developed in collaboration with PadWorx Digital Media.
Even if you haven’t played American McGee’s Alice and have no intention of turning in your MacBook for a PS3 so you can play the new game, Alice: Madness Returns is worth a look just for super creepy and very cool artwork.
