EGWORD Pure (イージーワード ピュア) is a CD-ROM-based word processing application for the Pippin Atmark console. It is a simplified version of Ergo Soft's EGWORD application for Macintosh.
EGWORD Pure was released in Japan for Macintosh and Pippin on June 7, 1996 by Ergo Soft and Bandai Digital Entertainment, respectively.
A full version of EGWORD 6.1 was included with the Pioneer MPC-LX200 series, which was released in Japan on July 1, 1996. Pioneer, like Bandai, was among the few Japanese companies that obtained a license from Apple Computer to build Macintosh-compatible systems.
Internet Kit version 2.0 used the EGBRIDGE component from EGWORD for Japanese input support on Pippin consoles instead of Apple's own Kotoeri software, which is normally included with KanjiTalk.
Ergo Soft discontinued its products on January 28, 2008 and withdrew from the software publishing business in January 2009.
