Stargate SG-1 has filled many a long sci-fi void on a dull Sunday afternoon. The TV follow-up to the classic 1994 movie took a groovy idea - semi-magic Egyptian portals which transport you instantaneously across the universe - and ran with it.
The result? A more than passable way to while away an hour as the SG-1 team grappled with being sucked across time and space, various moral dilemmas (well it is a US show), and a whole universe of weird aliens.
Almost perfect material of course for a game and in one of those 'why didn't we think of that before?' moments, publisher Jowood has teamed up with MGM interactive and Australian developer Perception to produce a game of the series, in the form of Stargate SG-1: The Alliance.
Few details have emerged, other than it will appear on PC and all major console platforms and will feature: "a spectacular interactive game experience that puts players in the action packed universe of the hit Stargate SG-1 television series."
Hm, that's okay then, but SG-1: The Alliance is also set release in the Autumn of next year, and taking a wild stab in the dark, we'd predict there might be some kind of alliance with someone or possibly something in there somewhere.
The official site might know more but it's not telling much - other than there'll be further info and an update next month.
