Is Klingon Academy canon?

Hello Klingon language speakers,

I am wondering how "canon" are Paramount-licensed computer games?
Obviously Star Trek: Klingon added a lot of canon words.  
Interplay is putting out a new game "Klingon Academy", and 
I am wondering what y'all think of this?

"on the first mission, the load screen details the Klingon 
assault groups as they move accross the neutral zone, with 
close-ups of the asteroid base and probe net. We have to 
coordinate with the scripters and designers to make sure 
that the information is accurate. And of course its all 
written in Klingon, which if you have enough time you can decifer. "

"The ship warps out, and the screen switches to the galactic 
map while the next system is loaded. Durring this time, you 
will be able to decifer the klingon language on the maps and 
learn some information about the mission or secrets that 
are hidden in the game. "

If the developers arbitrarily make up words or misuse/abuse 
tlhIngan grammar, should speakers of tlhIngan Hol consider it canon? 

Just curious.
