* Something that struck me is the gameplay itself. The whole game is a journey through Alice's mind to recover from the traumatic events of the fire. Since this is Alice's imagination, this journey could have taken any form at all, so why does Alice (or her subconscious, rather) choose to gorily slash and hack her problems to bits with a knife? It seems to me that she may have [[AxCrazy other issues]].

This page is for both ''AmericanMcGeesAlice'' and ''AliceMadnessReturns'', which being [[{{Grimmification}} insanity-based games inspired by a]] [[Literature/AliceInWonderland creepy children's classic]], are naturally full of horrors.

* It gets worse when you read the manual and find out that the whole thing is taking place in Alice's head, whilst she is trapped in her own mind in an asylum, undergoing the brutal "treatments" of that era. Also, the "Quit" screen was truly horrifying.

Added DiffLines:

* The Army Ants can be unnerving. They wear 18th century military uniforms and carry around bayonet-equipped muskets, but on the other hand they're massive ants with huge mandibles. Talk about creepy.

** Which is not to say that the Asylum is devoid of less subtle imagery. After the cutscene in the Trepanning room, [[spoiler:giant bloody screws are sticking through the ceiling and walls]]. And the Bloodletting room [[spoiler:drips endlessly]]. (Thankfully, the Ward has a pretty amusing conversation.)

* It's a minor thing but there are a few implications that Alice's lawyer, Radcliffe had spent quite an amount of Alice's inheritence on luxury items (the Eastern vases and other objects seen in his house): who knows how much money is left now? What if Alice finally gets well enough to take her money, only to discover it's all gone? [[FridgeHorror Who knows how she will end up taking care of herself with no money...]]

* The Jabberwock. Not only is he terrifying enough in the original books, but in this game he is the embodiment of Alice's guilt for accidentally causing the fire that killed her parents. You first encounter him in a replica of her own house, perched in the middle of a boiling magma land. Then he mocks Alice, saying that ''she'' smelt the smoke and ''she'' felt the flames, but was too busy having tea with her friends to bother to save her parents as they ''burned alive screaming'' upstairs. And just to nail it right home, you fight him in the burning remains of Alice's house.
