Series creator American McGee has confirmed that Alice Madness Returns will include a free-to-download copy of the first Alice, as DLC.

Mr. McGee went on to explain to [surl=http://www.computerandvideogames.com/298527/news/alice-madness-returns-to-include-original-alice/]CVG[/surl] that his latest project doesn’t feature online multiplayer, and isn’t well suited to other “perks” that generate longevity for popular games. Instead, he’s promising a decent amount of downloadable content, to keep your interest.

“There will be DLC in the form of dresses that the player can download and Alice can wear. Those dresses come with special abilities and enhance how you play through the game.

“There’s also going to be pretty significant release which is the original Alice brought over to the consoles so that a person who’s purchased Madness Returns gets a download code and is able to bring Alice 1 onto their console and play through the entire original game alongside playing Madness Returns.”

So, if you’re into something a little bit dark, a little bit twisted, and a little bit different than the fairy tales you grew up with, this might be your answer. Don’t run around trying to find a copy of the original game (Alice was first released for Mac and PC in 2000, you may have troubles getting it to run, if you can even find a box copy). Just wait for Alice Madness Returns, and get your fix in one big double-dose. Mmm.
