Micro Applications releases KiPulKai in France


Micro Application, the leading software publisher in French-speaking countries, has started sales of its KiPulKai title, a magic adventure game for young players. The game is available in both online and offline versions. The renown publisher again uses the anti-piracy technology from StarForce.

The professional team of game developers at Gibcom Multimedia has managed to create a wonderful universe which amazes the user’s imagination from the moment he hits the Play button. The game totally captures attention with its adventures, magic inhabitants and rich landscapes. Young users can enjoy the real fable with its serene and deliberately non-violent atmosphere. Exciting adventures are available offline, or can be played online featuring an opportunity to exchange ideas and impressions with other players. According to the developer, KiPulKai was created to stimulate intelligence and develop imagination of a player.

The publisher has recommended the developer to use a protection technology for KiPulKai: the offline version of the game is released on CD discs with an advanced anti-piracy technology from StarForce, the renown software security solutions provider. The player does not have to bother about entering the disc key – the Keyless technology by StarForce automatically verifies the disc in the drive.

"As we had developed our own Internet-based protection earlier, and believe it cannot be cracked easily, we looked for a product that could protect an offline game", comments Bernard Claudinon, Vice President Development of Gibcom Multimedia. "StarForce was recommended by our publisher, Micro Applications. And it was an excellent advice! StarForce is easy to implement and seems really hard to crack. It fits perfectly into our own protection strategy and we would of course recommend StarForce to others. To attain better usability, instead of protecting the installation module, we have chosen to use an approach in which all protection checks are performed at first launch of the application. No manual key entering is required."
