The Chill-out Pack: The best games for the entire family, hassle-free!

Metaboli launches its Chill-out Pack in June 2009, offering a selection of over 200 casual games that are easy to pick-up and play, without the need for a high-end PC. The Chill-out Pack is composed of games which have been chosen for their high quality content, such as movie licenses, TV spinoffs and more: The Chronicles of Narnia and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, for example. In addition, a new game will be added to the Pack every week, making it fantastic value for money, and keeping the content at the cutting edge of PC gaming trends.

Aimed at children as well as adults, the Chill-out Pack caters to the entire family and provides for every taste (all of them are classified under the PEGI classification of 12+): Puzzles, Adventure, Brain training, Cards, Mahjong, Management and many more.

The parental control system: Keep an eye on what your kids are playing

The revolutionary parental control system that Metaboli has devised gives parents control over what their children play and enables them to do so in a secure and safe environment. Parents can create sub-accounts for each of their children, establish play-time limits, monitor the time spent gaming and define which games their children are allowed to play.

Thanks to their sub-accounts, children can play on their own PC's without requiring constant supervision, and within the limits set by their parents.

« Parents are more and more aware of their need to regulate their children's use of video games» explains Olivier Decrock, Metaboli's CEO.« The Chill-out Pack, with its integrated parental control system, answers that need directly. It is important to establish the game time planning with the child and explain the reasons for the limitations to help the child understand and accept them.»
