Cary,
NC, June 09, 2000

Shrapnel
Games is proud to announce a partnership with online e-tailer
EZGamer.com,
which allows our customers to order a CD with all of
our
demos and patches on one CD, potentially saving up to a day of
downloading.
Details for ordering can be found on our website at
http://www.shrapnelgames.com.

 

Richard
Arnesen, Director of Covert Operations for Shrapnel Games,
said,
"We have heard a great many of our customers complain about
the
costs of downloading our demos and patches, due to the higher
costs
of being online, especially internationally. With this
partnership
our customers will be able to go to one place and order
a
CD with all of our demos and patches, for all of our games, for
one
low price. We are very excited about this new opportunity to get our games
into as many of our potential customers hands as
possible,
no matter what their internet connection speed or cost
may
be."

 

"EZGamer.com
provides an excellent outlet for publishers and
developers
to offer their games and software on CD with a simple
outsource
solution," explains Jeremy Kagan, President and CEO of
Volatile
Media Inc, which operates EZGamer.com. "Most publishers
realize
that much of the world connects to the Internet at slower
speeds
and values the option to skip time-consuming downloads."

game
publisher who has published such hits as Horse and Musket
(86%

of
such award winning games as Wages of War and 101: The Airborne
Invasion
of Normandy, it continues to bring bright new games to the
forefront
with promising games such as Steel Beasts (Over 50,000
downloads
of the demo in the first 10 days) and Combat Command 2:
Danger
Forward (the first modern wargame to highlight exciting WWII
air
and sea operations) waiting in the wings. As Shrapnel Games

to grow and develop we are always looking for new developers,
programmers,
