GarageGames and Green-Ear Team Up to Bring Voice to Torque

Akron, OH, September 17, 2008 --( GarageGames and Green-Ear are proud to announce the availability of Green-Ear’s Torque integrated Software Development Kit. The new partnership allows game developers to easily add voice and text chat, voice morphing, private channels and more into their games. Complementing its affordable cost, Green-Ear’s voice network eliminates expensive integration costs and costly server rentals.

“Green-Ear technology was a natural fit with Torque. Providing independent developers with affordable tools to make great games is a mutual goal of both companies,” said Derek Bronson, Director of Third Party Development, GarageGames.

Green-Ear and GarageGames will showcase the extensive voice capabilities of Green-Ear technology working in the Torque Game Engine September 15 at the Game Developer Conference in Austin, Texas. The integrated SDK will soon be available on with prices starting at $49.95.

According to Mike Rojas, Green-Ear CEO, “Torque has made it possible for ordinary people to develop sophisticated games and we fit in perfectly in this space. We developed Green-Ear in a way that greatly simplifies adding voice to your game. And if you have Torque, it’s even easier. There’s no need to download external software, rent servers or buy bandwidth, just plug and go.”
