    igLoader selected by Miniclip.com for delivery of Windows-based browser games.

    Poole, Dorset UK - Febraury 7, 2006 - Independent UK-based software developer INDIEPATH announced today the successful completion of a licensing deal with Miniclip Ltd. The deal gives Miniclip.com access to igLoader: a secure and consistent platform for browser-based game delivery. Now miniclip.com customers can play "Premium" online games using the browser of their choice. This means that game delivery is no longer reliant on ActiveX and Internet Explorer.

    "igLoader is new to the market, and like all new products, gaining acceptance is the most difficult task", said Tim Fisher Indiepath's owner. "Now that igLoader has been licensed by miniclip.com - the biggest player in the online game industry - we expect the adoption rate to gather significant momentum. It is significant that our first major client is the leader in this industry."

    igLoader is a cross-browser plugin that delivers and operates Windows-based software within a browser window. igLoader is unique in its implementation and simplicity, because it is not based on ActiveX technology and so is compatible with browsers such as Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera. igLoader is secure, so only licensed software can be installed and launched by the plugin.

    Early adopters use igLoader to deliver computer video games, but the software also delivers complete applications across the Internet, and/or internal networks.

    A free Development Edition is available to "Ready" and "Test" applications. To find out more, and to download the Development Edition visit www.igloader.com

    Congrats Tim! Having Miniclip use it will certainly boost the "market acceptance" of igLoader quite a bit. Good Luck to you.

    ***** Not at related to the Miniclip deal.

    FYI, we have just successfully tested and delivered a whopping 60MB game, what will come next?? A browser version of Doom3???

    The software, once delivered, was launched using the new decryption code, it decrypts and launches the executable from memory, not disk! This new feature prevents the client from launching the application locally, making this a great solution for Subscription based and tournament sites that charge for game plays!!

    For those who mis-undetstood, the whole application is still cached on the client machine. The executable is decrypted and launched from memory. You are not required to re-download the application everytime you use it; you can however only launch it with igLoader via the correct web page.
