*Please note i won't be referring much to the artbook for material here, i am only going to talk about things that were 100% developed and implemented in the game at some point or another. Also if you can't be bothered to read all this and just want the deleted speech download its at the very bottom of the post*
A lot of things mentioned here can be seen in a trailer accidentally uploaded online that was meant for internal use only. See the video HERE
The storyline of Alice in London was originally set to be larger. Combat would have been included and Alice would have had to evade Police capture. A tutorial stage would have taught London Alice what she needed to know via accompanying a new Policeman called Carmine on his first patrol. These objectives can still be found in the games files.
TUTORIAL_OBJ_01=Take Carmine on his first patrol.
TUTORIAL_OBJ_03=Shoot 5 bottles.
TUTORIAL_OBJ_04=Use Y look.
TUTORIAL_OBJ_05=Climb over the barricade.
TUTORIAL_OBJ_06=Perform 3 cover slips.
TUTORIAL_OBJ_07=Perform 3 SWAT turns.
After this Alice would set out to meet Pris Witless at her apartment. Presumably as in the final version Alice would hallucinate that Pris was transforming into the Jabberwocky and the player would either see Alice push Pris off the roof, or Alice would simply black out and wake up later with Pris gone (most likely the latter to add mystery to the game). Either way, Alice is now wanted for the murder of Pris Witless and must now evade police capture by way of maneuvering round the rooftops of London. Objectives for this section are also still in the games files.
OBJ_VS_L01=Meet Pris Witless at her apartment.
OBJ_VS_L02=Find out what Pris Witless knows.
OBJ_VS_L03=Escape the Police.
It is possible Rabbit appears to tell the player to run from the Police, however this may have occurred at a later point in the game.
After a walkway breaks and Alice slips off the roof the ground below would break revealing the tunnel to Wonderland which Alice falls down.
Landing in the Vale Of Tears. Here Rabbit would be the first character she meets.
Rabbit would instruct her to find Hatter, who's domain wouldn't be as simple to enter as in the final game. Again these objectives still remain in the games files.
OBJ_VS_W01=Reach the Mad Hatter's domain.
OBJ_VS_W02=Find another way into the domain.
OBJ_VS_W03=Find the Mad Hatter.
The design of the Vale changed, first having large patchwork mushrooms. These can still be seen in the final game, however they are much smaller.
As the development progressed Rabbit was removed and Cheshire added in his place. The new entering the Vale scene changed only slightly from what is seen in the final game, the only changes being slight camera angle shifts, Cheshire textures (not as detailed as final), animations and fade-out (notice his eyes fade out last). Note also there are no floating objects in the sky and no Mock Sparrow. See the video HERE
The design of the Hatters Domain, like the Vale, changed slightly. Early in development note the metal card shaped platforms making a return from the first game.
Further in development, only a small change to remove a Bolterfly Hive. See the video HERE
It isn't clear how the story would unfold from here, other than Alice would continue to drift back and forth between evading capture in London and falling to Wonderland, however it is clear she would still meet with Radcliffe as seen in an objective left in the games files.
OBJ_Chap3_L01=Find the Lawyer’s Office on Cornhill.
She would meet Nan Sharpe and the Mermaid would still burn down, from this we discover Alice had a room which she stayed in at the Mermaid.
Subtitles=(Text="You'll hear soon enough. I hope you didn't leave anything you value in your room at the Mermaid...")
She would also find herself constantly at the scene of gruesome murders, unaware if she committed them or if someone is killing who she is trying to talk to in an effort to silence them, keep her from the truth and frame her.
In Deluded Depths during the HMS Gryphon sequence Mock Turtle would give commands to the player.
Subtitles=(Text="Alice! The ship's taking too much damage. It won't survive!")
Subtitles=(Text="The one on the right! Fire now, or we'll become part of the food chain!")
Subtitles=(Text="Fire the cannons. We'll teach these predators etiquette!")
Subtitles=(Text="Mind the mines, Alice. They'll scuttle us faster than the sharks.")
There was an encounter with a King Crab who would protect the Oysters, subtitles of the speech are still in the games files. It is unclear from what he says whether or not Alice is aware of the Walrus and Carpenters intentions for the Oysters.
Subtitles=(Text="Do you always follow the orders of a deranged authority figure? We must protect our friends.")
Subtitles=(Text="He has only his own interests in mind. He and the Walrus. And you are their tool. We will protect the Oysters, vain and silly creatures, who will not protect themselves. We won't give way without a fight.")
Once defeated the Oysters would wonder what happened to them.
Subtitles=(Text="Where are my crabs?")
The Ghost Captain would get irate with the player if they messed around instead of freeing the souls of his ships crew.
Subtitles=(Text="What the fuck are you doing?")
There was also a swimming section cut from Deluded Depths.
In Mysterious East there would have been a clearer distinction between East and West, which would have to be visited to free each area from the tyranny of the Daimyo Wasps as seem in the leftover objectives.
OBJ_Chap3_W01a=Sub-Objective Defeat the Daimyo of the East.
OBJ_Chap3_W01b=Sub_Objective Defeat the Daimyo of the West.
In either the Dollhouse or Queensland there was a cut character named Jack who Cheshire would tell you to meet. He wouldn't be pleased to see you. This is the only line left of Jacks in the games files, and the only line in which Cheshire mentions him.
Subtitles=(Text="You're not alone in this. Join up with \"Jack\". He can help.")
Subtitles=(Text="What's she doing here? Hasn't she done enough damage?")
In Queensland the chess pieces from the puzzles were meant to speak. There may have been a minigame in which you had to keep the rooks apart as alluded to in the deleted speech files from Cheshire.
Subtitles=(Text="I suppose you'll want to play our little game. Everything will be tickety-boo as long as you keep me away from that dreadful rook.")
Subtitles=(Text="Says you dear. And you don't run out of turns, or we'll have to start all over again. And that would be tiresome. ")
Also in Queensland the Queen would frantically shout at the player as they progressed and shout commands to the Excecutioner.
Subtitles=(Text="It's her! She's come for the toys. She wants my dolls. She'll take my kingdom, my crown. Find her. Kill her.Just, just... Off with her head! Off with her... everything! Guilty of... guilty of, of... Guilty as charged!")
Subtitles=(Text="She's aimless; shiftless; pointless; fruitless; ambiguous. Run her down; run her off; make her take out the rubbish; make her sad. Unwelcome visitor: return from whence you came! Where is whence? Ask for forgiveness? denied! Ask for pudding? Request denied. A perfect guest does not overstay; a perfect guest stays home. Remember what happened last time this started? No forget that! I mean remember the first time? Rember how frightened you were? Be afraid now! I'm the Queen, grown and awesome. The Queen will have your guts for garters.")
Subtitles=(Text="Seize her you awful creature. Be my wrath. Give her no comfort. No succor, no relief. No place to hide. No peace. Run her down. Slice her into tiny bite-sized titbits.")
Subtitles=(Text="Harm her, maim her. Grind her bones. Chop her into tiny bits... Give her a stomach ache! Gouge her eyses out! Stick pins in her ears. Stomp on her fingers. Pinch her cheeks! Protect the Queen from this intruder. Sacrifice for the sake of the kingdom. Damn and blast! More damage, more hurt, more pain... more madness. Bloody her; slash her. Off with... her toes! Her head!")
Perhaps by a bug in the final game, or perhaps by choice, in the Launch Trailer for the game you can see Giant Alice stomping around in her Queensland dress, however in the final game when she becomes giant the dress switches to the Classic dress. Even selecting an alternate dress from the Equip menu doesn't change the Giant dress. See the video HERE
The Dollhouse design was changed in the final game, and there were also Dollboys which were cut leaving only the Dollgirls in the final game. Cheshire would also appear small in the Dollhouse domain.
The weapons originally were based upon Tarot. Alices dress would change colour depending on which weapons were equipped. Also note the debug text on the final show "You feel ethereal". It is unknown what this means, possible a power up of some kind or just a reference to a boost in health?
Attacks were also different, some combo attacks appear to have been in the game.
Alice had the ability to "dash" through objects breaking barriers to continue.
Alice underwent a redesign through the games development.
Alice may have been friends with Charlie, the little boy seen in the intro of the game.
3_M_1_Charlie_01=That 'Salvation' cow on the High Street says Jonah's another word for 'jinx'. Man's saved from certain death with nothing worse than fish stink on him. Lucky bloke, I'd say.
Subtitles=(Text="I hate that cow! Thinks she's always right. So authoritative; so judgemental; so bossy! Leaves no room for argument or defense.")
Some memories did not make it into the game, some were slightly re-written.
SpokenText="We’ll all roast in our beds, Alice, for the sake of your father’s voluminous notes on Greek irregular verbs"
SpokenText="I learned to play without music, Alice. Teacher could never find it in the Library"
SpokenText="A tee-pee’s a wonderful hidey hole, Alice. An underground cave"
SpokenText="should be confined to the stove, girls"
SpokenText="Papa, must your devotion to photography make the Library stink like a pickle barrel?"
SpokenText="And with gas laid on, that dim-witted coal-heaver will never again darken our door. A blessing!"
SpokenText="Put the roses upstairs, Alice. There’s never room in the Library"
SpokenText="I’m sure fabulous creatures think us fabulous, too"
SpokenText="Don’t confuse mad with angry, Alice. We’re all mad here"
SpokenText="There’s no room to swing a cat in here"
SpokenText="Amanita muscaria, Alice, is a fancy name for a foul-tasting toadstool"
SpokenText="Eat your soup, girls. Young cows gave their all for it"
SpokenText="Loaded collier lost at sea. Fire on board. No survivors!"
SpokenText="You never liked trains, Alice. Noise and smoke like snakes and snails?"
SpokenText="Brixton couple with budgie survive plunge over Victoria Falls!"
SpokenText="I only take tea with friends, your Majesty"
SpokenText="Bad Train! Won’t stay on the tracks!"
SpokenText="Must that wretched rabbit go everywhere, Alice?"
SpokenText="Bugs are fascinating, aren’t they, dear? Lizzie hates them"
SpokenText="Father napped in the library before the couch became a table"
SpokenText="Remember, Alice, no deity decides who’s to live or who’s to die?"
SpokenText="Chains and locks are worthless, Alice. Where are you when you can’t find the key"
SpokenText="A pretend tea-party is fine, Alice. But you’ve ruined our best china. Your father won’t be pleased"
SpokenText="The time has come to put away childish things, Alice"
SpokenText="No need to lock the doors, dear. We’ve nothing to steal"
SpokenText="Exotic beasts demand special attention, Alice"
SpokenText="Like Gibralter, Alice, the house is impervious to earthquake, fire, typhoon, and Barbary macaques"
SpokenText="Some bees makes honey; some bees are just busy"
SpokenText="Small and special rarely go together"
SpokenText="Industrial progress is overvalued, Alice. Should we go farm in Australia?"
SpokenText="Stuff comes in many forms, dear; but it’s nearly all rubbish"
SpokenText="Off with his head . . . Sentence first. Verdict later"
SpokenText="A gentleman without a hat has clearly lost his head"
SpokenText="Would you like to hear about Humpty-Dumpty, again, Alice?"
There were many cut lines of dialogue in the game. Most of these belonged to Cheshire, including one ironically heard in most trailers ("Now it's time to put your blade to work"). It would appear as in the first game the player was able to call upon him whenever they chose, why this was cut is unknown. To hear these lines, and many others, here i present all the cut dialogue from the game. Download HERE
