The Game On A Guitar, "Alida" Heads To Retail This May



Got Game Entertainment today announced "Alida" for Mac OSX will begin shipping to retail in May. The PC version will follow this July. The intricate first person 3D graphical adventure game created by Australian musician and artist Cos Russo is set on Alida, an abandoned island theme park ten miles out at sea. Originally built and inhabited by a wildly successful rock band, the island is actually a gigantic guitar, replete with wondrous and ornate graphics, unique and bizarre locations.

When the band split up, Alida was abandoned. But, now, several years later, the band's manager suggests a reunion on Alida. Soon thereafter band member Arin leaves for the island and is not heard from again. Players must search the island for the missing musician and bring him home.

"I wanted to combine my love of music and games and so ‘Alida' was born," said Russo. "I believe I've created a game that is a total sensory experience from the soundtrack to the sound cues used in the puzzles - one of the true trademarks of the game – all within the context of the very idea of what it would be like to live inside a guitar."

Featuring clever and thought-provoking puzzles, all backed by an entrancing original music score, in their search for Arin, players will soon find themselves lost in "Alida".

"Alida" is rated "E" for Everyone by the ESRB and will retail for $39.99 USD. For more information, visit
