The Village of the Doomed is the first location in American McGee's Alice. It, along with the rest of Wonderland, has been corrupted by Alice's insanity and the Queen's rule. Torch Gnomes are the main inhabitants, but they have been enslaved and forced to work under harsh conditions. Houses and huts have been destroyed; and the waters are toxic to Alice. This area, in a way, acts as a tutorial; the Cheshire Cat and Torch Gnomes help Alice along her way. Here, the Vorpal Blade and the Playing cards can be collected, as well as a key that was used to get to the Elder Gnome's blimp.
