"It's Hazard Time!" The classic 80's videogame star, Matt Hazard, is back in Eat Lead: The Return of Matt HazardTM.   Eat Lead sees Matt Hazard, voiced by Will Arnett ("30 Rock" and "Arrested Development"), get his chance to prove once and for all that he is the king of shooters when Wallace "Wally" Wellesley, new owner of mega game publisher Marathon Megasoft, voiced by Neil Patrick Harris ("How I Met Your Mother" and "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog"), gives Matt his comeback role starring in a new title for Xbox 360 and PS3.

In the world of Eat Lead, however, everything stops being a game and becomes reality when it is clear that Wally is using the new game to bring about Matt's death once and for all.  With only the mysterious "QA" to help him, Matt must fight against zombies, cowboys, space marines and more to keep his game from being over.

With an original storyline by 2008 Writers Guild of America Videogame Writing Award winner, Dave Ellis, Eat Lead's unique blend of comedy and action will provide gamers with a shooter experience like no other with hardcore gunfights intersperced with wickedly smart humour.


  • Comedic Storyline
    Written by 2008 Writer's Guild Award winner, Dave Ellis, Eat Lead is a side-splitting ingenious storyline and setting that's never been explored before in the shooter genre.  Both Will Arnett and Neil Patrick Harris deliver perfectly timed punch lines that will make gamers laugh in hilarity with their solid voice performance as Matt Hazard and Wallace Wellesley.
  • Spoofed Retro Characters Fight Back
    Help classic videogame stars such as Master Chef and Captain Carpenter redeem their dignity against enemy foes like Sting Sniperscope and Sonny Tang and get to the bottom of why all these iconic characters' worlds converge.
  • Intense Combat Action
    Attack enemies with everything from plasma rifles, to sniper rifles, old-west six shooters and many other favourite weapons of choice, or use a number of different interactive melee moves to help Matt destroy Wally's legion of back-catalogue videogame characters.
  • Unique Level Design
  • An expansive level environment design reflects years of videogame history in a next-gen package including levels that are radically transformed via precisely timed "hack effects" to challenge Matt Hazard with new scenarios throughout each battle.
  • Strategic Point-and-Cover System
    Eat Lead uses a strategic point and cover system that allows gamers to go far beyond simply hiding behind walls when they can move up to, over, between, and around any cover objects with a fluidity never before seen in a game.
  • Intelligent Physics System
    Eat Lead makes use of the intelligent physics system that includes destructible items and smart objects, where items can be destroyed or moved to blow through cover or act as temporary safe havens throughout the game environment.
