We designed 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. I'm very pleased that Developers see the value in our product and began purchasing it as soon as we went live."
