IMG Reviews Alice
11:23 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

Today IMG has posted a full review of the dark and alluring adventure American McGee's Alice published for the Mac by Aspyr and ported by Westlake. Here's a sample:

'Who are you?' said the Caterpillar.

This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, 'I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'

'What do you mean by that?' said the Caterpillar sternly. 'Explain yourself!'

'I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, sir' said Alice, 'because I'm not myself, you see.'

'I don't see,' said the Caterpillar.

'I'm afraid I can't put it more clearly,' Alice replied very politely, 'for I can't understand it myself to begin with; and being so many different sizes in a day is very confusing.'
This quote from Lewis Caroll's 'Alice In Wonderland' does a good job of introducing the style of the game, with gorgeous yet twisted graphics and music from Nine Inch Nails member and co-founder Chris Vrenna. For more details on how you can help Alice battle with her psyche, be sure to read the full review. Alice is also carbonised, so will work under both OS 8/9 and OS X, straight out of the box.
