Left Brain Games, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of a new interactive game for personal computers featuring musical artist and cult hero Weird Al Yankovic and thousands of pesky computer viruses.
Virus Alert 3D features Weird Al as the new Information Technology employee at Companytechco Inc., LLC. His job is to hunt down and exterminate computer viruses that are plaguing the firm. Users get to control Weird Al as he works his way through the building eliminating viruses, protecting computers, unlocking secret doors, and securing the help of drone like co-workers.
The trial version of the game is available for download and is compatible with both Macs and PCs. The full game features 25 levels of play, though the free version includes only 5 levels. A registration code can be purchased for $16.95 to unlock all levels. Animated vignettes appear after every fifth level introducing Al to a cast of zany characters working at the company.
In conjunction with the launch of this new product, Left Brain Games has made available a Virus Alert 3D download website for the free trial version. The site located at www.virusalert3d.com includes screen images of the game along with links to Weird Al's website and the animated music video.
