Akella - Signs DRM Deal With Byteshield
Here is some good news for all you Disciples III fans out there. Akella signed a deal with Byteshield to provide DRM for their products. While many gamers would love for all DRM to just up and vanish, I doubt that will ever happen. You can read more about it here at Gamasutra.
While many gamers object to the use of DRM, Byteshield has made efforts to reach out to gamers for input on creating the technology. DRM watchdogs Reclaim Your Game approve of the DRM, calling Byteshield "safe, transparent, and non-invasive on your PC."
Byteshield describes its technology as an account-based copy protection model that "enables users to run games on multiple computers without limiting their ability to use the product they purchased."

Akella - Revamped English Website
Since Akella is involved in the publishing or development of a lot of the games we cover (Disciples 3, Hard to be a God,etc ) it may be worthwhile to note that they have completely redone their website to make it more user-friendly, with quick links to all their games in development or released, as well as a clean-looking newslist. You can take a look at the result here.
