Alice: Asylum’s ‘narrative outline’ might be the closest fans get to American McGee’s Alice 3

It’s been a long time since anything substantial was heard about Alice: Asylum, otherwise known as American McGee’s Alice 3 – the dark fantasy action-platformer take on Alice In Wonderland. Now creator American McGee has released a full ‘narrative outline’ for the game, so fans can experience Asylum’s entire story – which is great, because the game is a long way off.

The two Alice games were released by EA in 2000 and 2011 – the tenth anniversary of Alice: Madness Returns was last June – and were well-regarded by fans, despite being relatively straightforward action-platformers. The dark and unique take on the Alice stories were a big part of the appeal, for sure.

American McGee has been working on a third game – Alice: Asylum – since around 2017, and has been steadily releasing pieces of artwork and info on the Alice Patreon since then. This weekend McGee put out possibly the biggest update yet – a full narrative outline of Alice: Asylum, complete with script extracts, artwork, and the game’s entire story from start to finish.
