What is GameTap?
GameTap provides subscribers an “all-you-can-play” gaming service accessible from up to two household computers. To access GameTap, players securely download and install Turner-developed client software from www.gametap.com that acts as a gateway to the GameTap library.
Because games reside securely on the PC, not across a network, they act just as if they were still on the console or at the arcade. Fast response times, 3D effects, colors, and characters are all present and accounted for.
GameTap supports navigation and game play using both keyboard and mouse, as well as most USB peripherals. For GameTap, Turner has licensed nearly 1,000 games from 17 publishers. The service will launch with 300, and then roll out new titles and programming each week.
Programming is created expressly for GameTap – coming attractions and behind-the-scenes peeks that introduce the games and provide background information.
