From the overall style and design of the game, the author borrowed from the famous children's work "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland) and used it as a model for creation, but the outstanding point of the work is not only the weird and reasonable integration into traditional cognition, bringing the experiencer a new look, but also it shows a complete and profound plot line, seriously discusses some of the real problems in the current society, and is thought-provoking.
A twisted kingdom, a different landscape
Stepping into the game, it is very easy to find a lot of familiar fairy tale novels, through processing, they are well integrated into the atmosphere of the whole "madness", this sense of commonality is also easy for players to remember these characters, reducing the burden of reading
1. Smiley cat to Cheshire cat
Shortly after the story begins, our protagonist encounters the first "odd species": the smiley cat, whose half-smiling face made of fangs and the whole body wrapped in a mysterious cloak are particularly terrifying, which makes me think of the original Cheshire cat who can only appear and disappear at any time, always with a calm, seductive smile to hide his timidity, and they are different in many characteristics.
2. Rabbits chasing together
Alice, a cute little English girl, finds a talking white rabbit with a pocket watch when she is bored. She chases it and accidentally falls down a rabbit hole, thus falling into the magical underground world, which is what Alice encounters in the book.
In this game, the heroine also found a white rabbit, although he did not have the cute attributes of being an original creature, and the blood stains on his body were particularly terrifying, but he still ran through the chapter as an object to be chased, and every sudden appearance of the white rabbit was announcing that the content had entered a new chapter.
3. Bread wars
While searching for food in the mall, Yalizi meets two strange "bread men", called granular filling on one side and bean paste filling on the other, "everyone is brown and bald." The skin exudes an inexplicable glow, and the body is very firm. "But such a philosophical description makes me laugh, and they even fight over which taste (that is, their body) is better, which is quite funny.
Shape-shifting mind, deformed spiritual sustenance
As we approach the final chapter, we may be able to glimpse the original appearance of the story, and what is presented to us is not a childish fairy tale. The bloody truth is shocking enough, but the storm will surely rise before it, and all the details are already unspoken.
"Force majeure accidents can suddenly change a person's fate, neither man nor bread can resist. In the dark box, dreaming of the impossible 'someday'" savor this sentence from the discarded bread that has lost its edible value, since everything in this kingdom comes from the thoughts of one person, then these words are just her self-talk, reality has long been shattered, hope has withered, why not fend for yourself in the wasteland of fantasy?
The process of accompanying the smiling cat is the release of the heroine's heart. In my opinion, the smiley cat is the embodiment of Aliko's real-life view of her mother: the early loss of fatherly love and domestic violence ("Young Alice was beaten by her mother and fled into the incredible world. "Let the smiley cat become the guide of this world, it always smiles but there is no gentleness to speak of, and hides its figure, which may be related to the way Alizi's mother treats her child deformities in life, she did not handle the fire correctly, let it take root in Alizi's heart, go crazy, and even collapse and kill." The more I unleashed the cruel blade, the more it hurt the smiley cat, the more it bounced back and hurt myself. This realization finally erased the mustard between the two, but it was too late.
Mr. Rabbit, who chased all the way, loomed from time to time, and it was the fatherly love that Aliko longed for, vain and ethereal. After the disaster, loneliness and guilt caused this dark country to rise, "The more futile things are, the more important they are." "Mr. Rabbit" is never available, but the chase is directional, at least it can give her a little comfort in this cold and lonely world.
The characters in the story have no real voice acting and often require their own imagination to bring in, and the single soundtrack weakens the appeal of the game and often makes me sleepy in the first half. But overall, the flaws in the work are not hidden, the sense of rhythm is good, the direction of the plot far exceeds my expectations, unexpected and reasonable, and the variety of branching options and a large number of different endings are also additions to the work, which is worth playing.
I wrote a thousand words, but like a person drinking water, the taste is only self-aware, and I am afraid that the paranoia I wrote will mislead everyone, so I stop writing here. The story ends in tragedy, and the protagonist may not be "redeemed", and my eyes are full of big dreams. But in the face of the present, the tolerance and communication part of family affection and friendship should be the issue we should think about and pay attention to now.
