Hazard/Arnett/Harris ’08 — The
Change Gamers Need!

D3Publisher (D3P) today announced
that award-winning Hollywood actors Will Arnett, best known to audiences for his
roles on television’s “30 Rock” and “Arrested Development,” and Neil Patrick
Harris, currently appearing on television’s “How I Met Your Mother,” will voice
the main characters in Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard™, an original
third-person shooter with a sense of humor for the Xbox 360® video game and
entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment
system. Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard is anticipated for release in Q1

In Eat Lead, Will Arnett will bring
to life classic 80’s videogame action hero Matt Hazard. Matt gets his chance to

Wellesley, new owner of mega game publisher Marathon Megasoft, voiced by Neil
Patrick Harris, gives Matt his comeback role starring in a new next-gen title
that pits him against all of his memorable foes from videogames past. In the
world of Eat Lead, however, everything stops being a game and becomes reality
when players discover through the original storyline and Arnett’s and Harris’
voiceover that someone is using the new game to bring about Matt’s death once
and for all.

most beloved genres of games and pop culture, so it was important that we find
the perfect voice talent to bring both Matt Hazard and Wallace Wellesley to
life,” said Pete Andrew, vice president of product development, North America,

games combined with their comedic genius and superb voice talent will make Eat
Lead a must-have title for the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 system.”
