Disney is to test the market for digital distribution by offering a range of casual games for PCs.

Partnering with Macrovision, The Walt Disney Internet Group will digitally distribute titles based on Pirates of the Caribbean, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King and Aladdin.

"Disney Game Downloads is a good example of our continued success in leveraging new technologies to deliver unique entertainment experiences," said Myles MacBean, vice president of technology for WDIG.

Games can be previewed on a trial basis before being purchased and once bought, consumers can share trials with other PC users on an unlimited basis.

"Digital distribution is a key focus for Macrovision and we enjoy working with our customers when they enter the online distribution market, seek to reach greater audiences, and move into new and different digital distribution areas," said Fred Amoroso, CEO of Macrovision.
