Softwrap today announced that it has partnered with Funcom, to provide it with antipiracy technology, allowing them to sell games directly from their eStore and through any of their affiliates, starting with Dreamfall: The Longest Journey.

"Funcom chose Softwrap for its robust security and ease of use both from an end-user and developer's perspective", commented Trond Aas, Funcom CEO. Trond continued to say, "Softwrap has been extremely efficient, friendly and professional to deal with. We look forward to many titles being distributed electronically with the Softwrap technology."

The sale of Dreamfall will be processed by ask|net AG, a leading provider of global e commerce outsourcing solutions. Softwrap has integrated its technology with ask|net AG allowing the game to automatically unlock on successful purchase, ensuring a seamless end user experience.

The protected game can be shared with friends or family who will also be given the opportunity to purchase from within the application if they wish to play the game thereby creating viral sales.

Dylan Solomon, a spokesperson for Softwrap commented, 'This is one of the most innovative companies in the games space. We are very excited to be working with Funcom to release Dreamfall in electronic format.'
