Wired.com writer Chris Kohler did an interview with myself and RJ Berg where we talked about Alice: Madness Returns. From the article:
Wired.com: Since this will probably be many peopleâ€™s first experience, Iâ€™m guessing youâ€™re crafting the game in such a way that you donâ€™t need to have played the original to enjoy it.
McGee: Yeah, but thereâ€™s a definite need for us to honor and answer to the existing audience, people whoâ€™ve been loyal fans to the property over the years. Weâ€™ve done our best to blend together into the story elements from the first game. This is a natural sequel, a narrative sequel to the first game. So we get back in there and people who know the first game are going to have a lot of reward in terms of seeing locations that they may have seen before, characters that they knew from the first game. But itâ€™s certainly not a requirement, bringing this game to console for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 players, for them to have played the PC one.

GamePro is going all-out and featuring our very own Alice on the cover of their September 2010 issue. Â According to the article on their website, Will Herring will be discussing the early previews of the game during his 14-page feature. Â Will visited with us in China recently to get the scoop straight from the Horse’s mouth.
In addition to the overview of Alice: Madness Returns, Will also delved into the complex world of tracking the evolution and permutations of the intellectual property of Lewis Carroll’s slightly-addled heroine from the original stories penned in 1865 on through the movie treatment at the hands of Tim Burton.
For us, it’s excellent to be able to talk about the game finally, and even better to listen to everyone else talking about it, too. Â If you missed the original announcement this past Tuesday, EA released the first teaser – and we’re all in agreement that it does tease! Â If there was any question about it’s impending rating, we’re hoping that clears it up.
Get ready to snatch up your copy at the end of July.
