In-game Ideas/Suggestions

Game Play

  1. A dog companion based on the puppy from the original Alice book. The dog will level up with you as you play and be called on to attack your enemies before vanishing/running away. The dog can gain armor as he's upgraded, so along with growth he appears more and more armored to the player's liking.

  1. People who breathe hot air and fumes end up having a swollen and blistered throat. Shadow Alice could be struggling to speak/have a very hoarse voice;
    • When the fire reach human muscles, they get dried out and contract. She could be moving weirdly/have spasms
  2. Areas in the game in which Shadow Alice and Alice merge to take on larger enemies.
    • Can have multiple endings depending on choices the player made, having Shadow Alice be an evil entity that taunts her for the loss of her family and being weak, or being an understanding and compassionate entity that takes over for Alice and allows her to heal.
  3. At the beginning of the game Alice does not kill any of the enemies she fights unless in Rage or Hysteria mode and as the story progresses she begins doing darker deeds. However, the more dark things she does, the stronger Shadow Alice gets.
  4. Shadow Alice is an unlockable character, having different moves and skill sets than regular Alice. Could also be a multiple ending scenario where Alice's actions results in shadow Alice. (e.g Lawful good, Neutral, Lawful evil, ect.)
  5. Occasionally when passing mirrors, Shadow Alice is standing behind Alice, unbeknownst to her.
  6. Wonderland becomes grey and lifeless and it crumbles away as Alice enters the depression stage where her ruined house is. Moving through the house could lead to the anger stage where we find the Jabberwocky.
  7. Rabbit holes could act as portals to transport you to different parts of Wonderland.
  8. Parts of the game can switch to be played from the White Rabbit's perspective to get to places Alice can't go.
  9. The mermaid from the circus(see story ideas) could grant Alice a power up for swimming, she would release a fish that swallows Alice's legs and acts as a mermaid tail, allowing Alice to swim and breathe underwater.
  10. Vending machines that allow Alice to upgrade her weapons. Chaos coins used as currency.
  11. Characters in Wonderland should be representations of the character's Alice knows in London like Bumby's representation as the Dollmaker. Such as Nan Sharpe as the Dutchess and Wilson as the Caterpillar since he is trying similarly to fix her broken mind. Nurse D would be represented as the White Queen since she was one of the few people that showed Alice kindness during her stay in the asylum.
  12. This game could continue exploring the concept of Alice: Otherlands where Alice would venture into other people's, such as Verne, minds as chapters. This could potentially be a DLC.
  13. Alice arrives to Depression and she finds that all of the denizens of that world of grief stricken. The Mock Turtle is a prominent character he explains to her that Humpty Dumpty has been wanting to have a "Great fall" ever since he lost all of his family members because he wouldn't come down off his wall to help them after they all became omelets for the Duchesses dinner. He fell into a despair and now Alice must save him from falling. But the Hatter has given Alice a quest he needs a piece to a machine but the only way she can get it is if Humpty falls and she can retrieve it from his innards. So she can either let him fall and destroy himself so that she get the necessary pieces or save him and the denizens of that world from drowning in their tears which seem to rise higher and higher each moment. (Morality choice)

Cutscenes/Specifics (Do these fit in the game, and if so, where?)

  1. Have adult Alice begin the journey of “Alice: Asylum” by going into a coma.
  2. Shadow Alice and Alice both believe they are the “real” Alice but in the end they realize they are two parts of a whole and they need to exist together.
  3. At the end of the game we see old Alice in a wheelchair, talking to the Cheshire before a nurse comes to wheel her away.
  4. A flashback to Alice pushing Bumby in front of the train but Alice is in the form of Shadow Alice.
  5. A concept where Alice is to play croquet outside of the asylum playing with the croquet mallet.
    • Alice walks into a battle boss “Flamingoon” where she lands in a tournament with most of wonderland watching in the stands, possibly just more flamingos.
    • The Croquet mallet comes alive and transforms into an upgraded evil flamingo mallet called a “Mallet Ringer” after a combo attack.
    • The Mallet Ringer keeps it's flamingo shape, feathery body, legs and feet with electricity coursing through the entire weapon for a limited time with Alice also gaining immunity during.
    • Alice is able to turn the Mallet Ringer around holding the neck and propel the legs and feet as another means of secondary damage.
    • After the Flamingoon boss battle is over, Alice retrieves a flamingo dress that can allow her to fly short distances while wearing it.
  6. Alice meets a group of Freakshow type characters at the circus based on children in her asylum ward; they all look like failed experiments.
    • One is a mermaid of a girl and boy, Siamese twins that are sewn together/connected at the head. She looks also as though she’s being swallowed by a giant fish from the waist down.
  7. Alice comes across train tracks with an abandoned train familiar from Madness Returns. She enters it and notices Cheshire on a nearby seat and the train begins to move backwards. Looking through the windows, she sees and hears the amusement park (circus) straight ahead.
  8. After the accident in the Hatter's lab, he uses a chemical to heal himself which makes him immortal and changes his skin green. This chemical could also be what the Hatter uses to put the Jabberwocky back together after Alice defeats him. The Jabberwocky before being defeated would look more grey and closer to Omri's image. (The Watcher, The Self, The Shadow)
  9. A section in denial the is reminiscent of London. It's dark and raining and all the buildings are made up of doors that do not open, representing indecision.
  10. A cutscene where the inmates are called to go out to the courtyard, and we watch in third person as Alice’s roommates shuffle out of the room. All except herself. As various patients walk past Alice, they mumble and murmur about her. How she never gets up, how she never attend roll call, etc. As the last one leaves, Alice sees a white rabbit hop into view, it stops in the middle of the hall and looks back at her then runs off. Desperate to follow it, she quickly scrambles out of bed, this will be an out of body experience. The players will then be able to explore the asylum as Alice's conscious.

Tarot Cards

  5. A shield that able to be upgraded like her weapons, and various things like fire needing higher upgrades to block/deflect.
  6. We should have some time to play around in Denial for a while before things really get started. Alice would start off with some of the more toy-based weapons in the first chapter and combat (such as is) would be more childish until about half-way or two-thirds of the way through Denial at which point the Vorpal Blade arrives (or we arrive at it), and then combat would become bloody and far more violent and remain that way going forward.


  1. Cranky the bear explodes in a suicide bomber manner
