The long-running science-fiction TV series, Stargate SG-1, is moving into the game sphere and lead members of the cast have signed on to lend their voices and likenesses to the production. Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping and Christopher Judge will reprise their popular roles for the console title Stargate SG-1: The Alliance.
In the game, as with the show, Andersons character, Jack ONeal, will use his extensive military training to lead the team to otherworldly adventures. The title is being developed by Sydney, Australia-based Perception for JoWooD Productions Software AG and MGM Interactive.
Stargate SG-1 originated on premium cabler Showtime before finding a new home on SCI-FI channel. The hit series about interstellar military travelers is now into its 8th season with a 9th currently in production. A spin-off series, Stargate: Atlantis, premiered on SCI-FI last year and has also established a loyal following.
