Created by independent Australian developer Cos Russo, this Got Game-published point-and-click adventure takes place on a giant guitar. Alida is actually an island, altered years ago to take the shape of a huge guitar, under the direction of a young and successful rock band. When the band's success — and bank accounts — began to dwindle, however, its members became defensive and paranoid, each claiming a different part of the island as his own and shunning the others. Yet after a long period of fear and isolation, the former rock stars all ended up abandoning the island and returning to civilization.
As is so often the case though, a nostalgic reunion of the group is eventually deemed a worthwhile proposition, and the band's manager suggests it take place on the almost-forgotten island. So Arin, a former band member, leaves for Alida and is not heard from again. Arin's wife is soon in contact, and she sends the player off to search for her missing husband. Once on the island, players will need to explore each of the areas once claimed by the young and paranoid musicians, and conquer whatever tricks and traps may still be left there. The island of Alida is designed to feature intriguing puzzles, strange machines, and graphics and sound that convey a true sense of the island's odd magnificence. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
