Seeing from the other side

Lewis Carroll originally wrote Alice’s adventures in Wonderland for entertainment purposes. Alice’s adventures in Wonderland was published on November twenty-sixth 223981865. Alice is a curious young girl who ends up losing sight of her world as she knew it after she followed the white rabbit. Once in Wonderland Alice must help end the evil red queen’s reign with the help of an odd bunch of sidekicks. The mad hatter, Nivens McTwisp the rabbit, and Cheshire the cat all lead Alice through her journey in Wonderland. When Alice was lost on her journey Cheshire gave her some advice that Alice wasn’t so sure of at the time. Regardless, Cheshire said, “In that direction,” the Cat said, waving its right paw round, “lives a Hatter: and in that direction,” waving the other paw, “lives a March Hare. Visit either you like: they’re both mad.”(chapter 5) In this game Alice must befriend as many creatures that she meets on her journey in order to successfully beat the game. To beat the game she must dethrone the evil red queen. 

In the first chapter, Down the rabbit-hole, readers are introduced to Alice and the white rabbit. Alice is seen sitting by the riverbank while boredom overtook her when she noticed the white rabbit in a waistcoat. Alice is a very young girl who has an extremely big imagination. This is the first level to Alice’s journey to defeat the evil red queen. Furthermore, in the second chapter, The pool of tears, Alice drinks the potion and eats the cake which causes her to change size drastically. In this level we will learn that Alice is curious about items even if she has no idea what they are, but she isn’t willing to deal with the consequences. Alice says, “I wish I hadn’t cried so much!” as she swam about, trying to find her way out. “I shall be punished for it now, I suppose, by being drowned in my own tears!” (chapter 2) We also notice more character development in chapter three, A Caucus-Race and a Long Tale, when Alice begins arguing with the Lory which expresses her boldness and assertiveness.

Another character in the video game is the mad hatter. We are introduced to the mad hatter in chapter seven when he becomes angry at the March Hare for his broken watch at the tea party. The mad hatter is seen as an insane character throughout the book and this video game. He loves fashion and riddles, but also has an obsession with tea parties. Furthermore, Cheshire the cat is also an important part of the video game. Once Alice meets the cat he is pictured as grinning and he tries to lead her correctly on her path while never giving her a solid answer. Another important character in the video game is the white rabbit, Nivens McTwisp. The white rabbit literally leads Alice to her journey of Wonderland. The white rabbit can be viewed as a symbol of Alice’s curiosity to gain knowledge as she goes on her journey.

Last but not least is the red queen. The red queen is the villian of this story. The red queen was in constant battle with the white queen for reign of the throne, but also for her husband. The red queen was also referred to as bloody big head because all the power went to her head. She wanted Alice dead during the game becuase it is Alice’s mission to defeat the queen and bring peace to Wonderland.

One thought on “Seeing from the other side

  1. Breanna, “Seeing from the Other Side” presents an intriguing blueprint for a video game set in the fictional world of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Distinguishing the preface from the game design, crafting more graceful transitions, and correcting errors of punctuation and style would strengthen the project. I am glad that I had the opportunity to work with you and wish you all the best with your future endeavors.
