PLYMOUTH, Mich., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Attention World Cup fans! Sick of listening to the sound of horns during the World Cup? The Devuvzelator is here! Stardock, developer and publisher of upcoming strategy game Elemental: War of Magic, has released a new, free app for World Cup fans streaming the matches on their PCs. The Devuvzelator is the only "run it and done" solution for cancelling out the sound of the popular vuvuzela horn heard during World Cup matches and requires no installation  (  

"We're huge soccer fans at Stardock and want to be able to enjoy the World Cup matches without the sound of the Vuvuzela," said Jeff Bargmann, Chief Architect at Stardock. "This is by far the simplest de-vuvuzela app for the PC, just click it and go. That said, go U.S.A.!"

Stardock's next PC title, Elemental: War of Magic, is currently under development and will be released on August 24 alongside a novel, "Elemental: Destiny's Embers," published by Random House and written by the game's executive producer and CEO of Stardock, Brad Wardell.
