New media: Farscape

Simon & Schuster releases a new screenshot and some video footage from its upcoming game based on the popular sci-fi television series.


Simon & Schuster has released the first screenshot from its upcoming game based on the popular sci-fi television series Farscape, as well as a video trailer comparing the actors from the show with the game's character models. Like the TV series, the game will follow the adventures of an American astronaut named John Crichton, who finds himself among a group of escaped renegades aboard a living ship called the Moya. The game begins as the Moya is stranded on a small planet in the corner of the universe. The ship is caught in the middle of a war, and the crew must stop a mysterious threat to the stability of the galaxy before it's too late. The third-person game involves both character interaction and fast-paced action. Players control every main Farscape character, each of which has different skills.

For more information, watch the video trailer linked below and read our previous coverage of the game. Farscape is being developed by Scotland-based Red Lemon Studios, and it is scheduled for release in early 2002.
