The Antigua based copy protection specialist SlySoft has now
acquired Game Jackal from Australian software company Jacal
All further development of Game Jackal has been taken over by SlySoft.
Giancarlo Bettini, CEO at SlySoft: "Due to new Australian copyright
law, Jacal Consulting had to take down the Game Jackal website
in January and SlySoft took this opportunity to complement our
software portfolio. Game Jackal is a perfect addition to our range
of product offerings."
"The first release of SlySoft Game Jackal will come at the end of March", SlySoft's Marketing Director, Tom Xiang, said. "We will be adding a few new features and some more languages. However, for our first release, our main focus will be the changeover to the SlySoft license system, with free lifetime updates. Old Game Jackal users can be easily upgraded to a SlySoft license, for no more than 10 USD."
Game Jackal is a Windows software that allows users to play PC game
titles without the need for the game's media to be in the CD-ROM
or DVD-ROM drive, similar to a virtual drive. Instead of
standard disc images, Game Jackal uses a proprietary format which
takes up considerable less storage space by working to only capture
data the game requires to run.
