Softwrap™, today announced that Logique Eclectic, which develops sports and society simulation software, has chosen Softwrap to encrypt and distribute GM Hockey, the first hockey simulation game of its kind, in which the player takes the role of a team manager.
Jean-François Cabana, Director and Software Engineer, Logique Eclectic, commented: ”We felt that the take-up of broadband has now reached a level where we should give serious consideration to using a digital distribution solution. Having asked the developer community for recommendations, Softwrap came top of the list.”
Cabana continued:”I believe that games belong to their creators. Independent developers have a better chance to bring breakthrough ideas onto the market because they don't have to follow the tendencies of the market. Their games may look different from those released by the major publishers in the industry, but they generally feel far fresher. The problem for independent developers is that there is often no distribution mechanism available to them. But that's exactly what Softwrap is providing us with.”
Craig Sims, Business Development Director at Softwrap said: “GM Hockey is a tremendously addictive game and we’re delighted that Jean-Francois has chosen Softwrap’s technology to help to distribute the game and at the same time protect his intellectual property. This is a prime example of how Softwrap is as relevant to individual developers as it is to the largest publishers, peer-2-peer networks and portals.”
