Disney Interactive has released this screenshot of a new Alice in Wonderland game in the making. This licensed computer game will be published at the same time as Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland movie in March 2010. The game's developer, a French computer game company Etranges-Libellules, will release this extremely interesting looking game for the PC, Wii and Nintendo DS. Disney will also release mobile games on the iPhone and iTouch later in the year.
The set up looks intriguing; why is the Mad Hatter in despair? Or is he sad? Where do these two paths lead to? And what is the White Rabbit up to?
The game will not be anything like the horror adventure game American McGee's Alice but will follow the new Burton's film plot in many ways. Alice and other Wonderland characters will fight against the Red Queen and try and return the newly named 'Underland' back into peaceful 'Wonderland'.
The scenery looks beautiful; I hope the whole game will feature this kind of carefully drawn scenes. I'm not a big gamer but I've enjoyed 'the Myst' and this scene reminds me of that game. I for one will be exited to explore it's surroundings when it hits the stores!
