Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard

Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard is a game developed by Vicious Cycle Software, Inc. Classic 80’s videogame action hero Matt Hazard gets 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, 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. Eat Lead is the first retail product to use the new, Vicious Engine 2 (Ve2), which is licensed for use for other games. Ve2 features a number of new and improved features, including an updated lighting engine and modern pixel shader technology. Eat Lead is currently rated “T” by the ESRB.
