Simon & Schuster announces Farscape game

An action-adventure game based on the science-fiction TV series is in the works.


Farscape: The Game

Simon & Schuster Interactive has announced plans to publish a game based on the science-fiction TV series Farscape in early 2002. The series airs on the SCI-FI channel, and it is produced by the Jim Henson Company. The show, which is now in its third season, follows the adventures of an American astronaut named John Crichton, who finds himself among a group of escaped renegades aboard a living ship called Moya.

The game, which is being developed by Scotland-based Red Lemon Studios, 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, which each have different skills. Simon & Schuster plans to give a public demonstration of the game at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) this May.
