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.

I liked it, but I don't really feel it improved on the flaws of the first. The first one was a little too easy, this one was a little too easy as well although the challenge was upped a notch, but not by much.

Also, although it did introduce new story elements (I found the secret message, foreshadowing?) and of course a new character at the end it didn't really answer any questions that we were left with in the original.

All the same questions we had the first time around are here, floating about unanswered, and there are obviously new questions that need answering. That's fine in regards to the fact that mystery is something that will keep players compelled to play, but when you have a bunch of unanswered questions you should leave the player with a handful of answers as well as a handful of questions, it makes things feel balanced; however instead you left us with two big handfuls of questions and not a single answer, which also drags down the plot a little.

Still, it was good and there were some very interesting concepts at play here. Never thought I'd see Mafia in Wonderland. Will there be a Mafia through the Looking Glass as well? :P

Still a secret :(

Great game! I love escape games like this. I can't get the secret achievement though, does anyone have any advice.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Nice work!

I like the detail you placed into this and the puzzles were very interesting and not too hard to figure out. The database gave me a bit of a laugh as well.

Well done!
