Update: Thank you for all the kind words everyone, we are reading them all. If I missed your review or didn't write you a response it isn't personal, I'm just overwhelmed by the sheer volume of them right now. I'm going to try to get to as many replies as I can throughout the week.

MAKE SURE you've played Episode 1 or you will be lost.

Impending Riot: Well after a long wait, Episode 2 is finally here. It was a blast to make, and we're really proud of how far it's come.

Yes, I know this one is short too, but we really added a lot compared to the first one. Our goal is to continue to tell a story, and we've done that and I'm really proud of where it is. I'm so pleased with Hyptosis art, Andie's music, and Tomamoto's voice.

This project really is a result of collaboration and Newground's immense pool of talent. I want to especially thank Tom and everyone else at Newgrounds for sponsoring this episode. This place has felt like an artist home for me for the past 5 years, I'm glad Alice is Dead can call it home too.

And last but certainly not least, I'd like to thank the fans. I'm sorry if I didn't respond to your messages, but I read every one of them and they motivated me to push on when things go difficult.

Hyptosis: I had a lot of fun doing the art for Aid2 and it was a blast exploring this dark, semi-real world, and trying to find interesting ways to splice it with the insanity that is Wonderland. I think by doing this, I hope, it makes it more easy to relate to, and more unnerving to explore.

The Mad Hatter just started as a sketch. I did a couple, but the one you meet in the game was the first tiny little sketch of him I did in the corner of a piece of notebook paper. I wasn't totally sold on him until tomamoto sent us the voice clips. Then I was all teary-eyed like a mother looking at her newborn insane person. It just felt good, thanks for doing such a good job bro.

I felt like I personally learned a lot in the making of Aid2, far more even than when we made the first one, and that feels really good. I got to add more crisp art, more thought into each piece, it was a very enjoyable experience. And of course, working with my good friend Mike, damn, so much better than working for a boss you know? It's really nice that we can agree on so much and we both seem to know how to compromise, which I think is super important in any business relationship.

I don't know what else to say other than 'woohoo' glad it's done, sorry it took so long but life stuff happened and we didn't want to cut corners, and so on. Hope you guys enjoy it.

Eh..

It's a lot easier then the first one. It seems more story driven then game play driven as well. :( Needs better balance on that. Luckily, the story and the atmosphere are awesome! For some odd reason i think of bioshock(I think it's the music) but much much darker, more sinister(because of the theme) and mooore.. fantastic? I think that's the word.

I love the series and look forward to more! I hope to find how the hatter broke out.. was he really helping you, or did he just use you to create a diversion? Is he really mad, or is everyone fooled? I just hope the next one is more of a brain teaser.

Superb.

The overall game had a very 'creepy', 'weird' but amazing feel to it. The art was intense, and very nicely done.
The voice acting was awesome, but what else could we expect from Joshua?
The music was great, and it really added a lot to the game. The story itself is getting more and more interesting that it already was, so thats a big plus.
It was pretty much perfect if you ask me.

I'm really looking forward to part 3!
