The Alice: Madness Returns Storybook is a free-to-download application that was developed by Spicy Horse to promote Alice: Madness Returns. Presented as an interactive book, the app was released in the iTunes Store on May 20, 2011 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A port for Android phones is currently in development.
The Storybook is a prequel to Madness Returns, covering the ten year period that Alice Liddell was treated in Rutledge Asylum, finishing around the time of her release and move to Houndsditch Home for Wayward Youth. As well as covering the events that happened during American McGee's Alice in Wonderland, it also shows what happened to Alice in the asylum.
To progress through the story, the viewer must interact with the illustrations, either by pressing buttons, moving objects around the screen, or reading newspaper articles.
There are eight astronomical symbols hidden throughout the Storybook. Locating the symbols and pressing them correctly will result in unlocking preview screenshots and concept art for Madness Returns. These images can then be saved onto the viewing device and be used as background wallpaper.
