Virus Alert 3D Features Weird Al
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Left Brain Games, Inc. recently announced the availability of a new interactive game for personal computers featuring musical artist “Weird Al” Yankovic in a battle against computer viruses. Virus Alert 3D puts players in control of Werid Al, a new employee of Companytechco, as he makes his way through the building eliminating viruses, protecting computers, unlocking secret doors, and securing the help of his co-workers.

Based on a song on Al’s recent album, “Straight out of Lynwood”, Virus Alert 3D marks the second time that Left Brain Games and “Weird Al” Yankovic have teamed up. The album was released with an animated music video of the Virus Alert single, which was also created by Left Brain Games.

“We love working with ‘Weird Al’ and his team. They are extremely creative and always give us free reign to try new things,” says Andrew Keplinger, President of Left Brain Games. “There’s no doubt that devout Al fans are going to love this game but I’m also convinced that there’s something in there for anyone.”
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.
