Exclusive Insane Character Art and Screens – Alice: Madness Returns

Wonderland has never looked more deliciously depraved than it does in EA Games’ upcoming Alice: Madness Returns! Don’t believe us? Then feast your eyes on our exclusive character profiles for The Executioner and the Card Guards.

Get lost in Wonderland like never before in Alice: Madness Returns. Explore the highly detailed and beautifully distinct visuals as you wander around Wonderland with Alice. Experience the insanity as you travel down the rabbit hole through Alice’s dark and twisted memories.

Eleven years ago a horrific fire took Alice’s family from her and left her mind horrifically scarred. Afterwards she was confined to Rutledge Asylum, where she struggled to confront her demons by slipping further into her fantasy world of Wonderland. Now, after ten years, she has finally secured her release — yet, she still bears the heavy psychological burden of that tragic event.

With her mind in tatters, she is unable to resolve the fear prompted by her strange memories, dreams, and visions. Perhaps she’ll do better in Wonderland. She always has. She travels there, seeking what the “real” world can’t provide: security, knowledge, and the truth about the past. But in her absence Wonderland, too, has suffered. Something has gone horribly wrong, and now a great evil is descending upon what once was her beautiful refuge. Can Alice save Wonderland — and herself — from the madness that consumes them both?

Alice: Madness Returns delves deep into the dark and violent side of the imagination, creating a nightmarish Wonderland where Alice must face the demons that haunt her visions. Visit the grim reality of Victorian London, and then travel to the beautiful yet ghastly Wonderland to uncover the root of Alice’s madness and discover the truth behind a deadly secret, kept hidden for years.

• Intense 3rd person action: Use multiple upgradable melee weapons, including the explosive Teapot Cannon, the punishing Hobby Horse, and the classic Vorpal Blade.

• Explore a dark and shattered Wonderland: Encounter familiar but now strange characters, including the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar, and the Red Queen.

• Magical abilities: Obtain peculiar abilities in Wonderland such as floating with Alice’s dress, shrinking, or growing to towering sizes in order to crush enemies.

• Interactive puzzles: Intuitive and rewarding puzzles such as transforming obstacles, musical memories, chess, and picture blocks.

Card Guard
Without weapons, the Queen’s reckless guards aren’t much more than “fodder,” in a fight. They were never really good with their hands; but this current bout of clawing demands caution. There are so many of them! And they’re eager to give up their lives. Even dead, their corpora delecti and remnants can cause a problem.

Armoured Card Guard
The wicked staff they carry makes them dangerous, but ponderous. Still, were their weapon to hit its target, they wouldn’t need speed to deliver the coup de grace.

With less intelligence and imagination than a wind-up toy, this brute does the bidding of the Queen. Her creature, its orders out of date, is certain to fall hard—when he falls. But until then, he’s so much more than a heartache.
