About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Alida' Goes Gold

Got Game Entertainment today announced "Alida" for PC has "gone gold." The PC version of the critically acclaimed first person 3D graphical adventure game begins shipping to North American retail the first week in August.

Following on the heels of this spring's release for Mac OSX, and hailed by the Mac gaming press as "absolutely a triumph", this intricate first person 3D graphical adventure, 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 the island. Soon thereafter band member Arin leaves for Alida and is not heard from again. You are secretly dropped off on the island where you must search for the missing musician and bring him home.

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

"Alida" for PC is rated "E" for Everyone by the ESRB and will retail for $29.99 USD. For more information, visit
