Farscape computer game slated for June debut

March 15, 2002

Simon & Schuster Interactive, in association with Jim Henson Interactive, a division of The Jim Henson Company, announced today additional details about their anticipated Farscape PC game.

Titled ``Farscape: War and Peacekeepers'' (Rated: ``RP'' by the ESRB; Shipping: June 2002), this game for the PC (Windows® XP, ME, 98) is a character driven, team based, 3D action game played from an isometric perspective. The game is being developed by veteran game developer Red Lemon Studios of Glasgow, Scotland.

THE STORY

FARSCAPE: WAR AND PEACEKEEPERS is set in the first season of the series (between episodes 10117: ``Through the Looking Glass'' and 10118: ``A Bug's Life). Moya is under fierce attack from Prowlers and Marauders from a nearby Peacekeeper outpost. Moya's defenses are breached and she is boarded by Peacekeeper commandos.

Moya retaliates and she and Pilot isolate the control systems trapping the Peacekeepers aboard. But D'Argo and Aeryn are captured and imprisoned on the ship. Rygel evades capture by lowering himself to crawl through Moya's ducts. John Crichton and Chiana escape to a nearby planet. Zhaan escapes separately in another shuttle.

John Crichton and Chiana crash land in a strange blue desert environment, with no idea of their location or the fate of their fellow crew members.

The scene is set for an epic adventure with the crew trying to return to Moya and free her from the Peacekeepers, but become embroiled in a feud between the warring factions of the planet's inhabitants.

All is not what it seems and an evil plot unfolds that threatens the stability of the Universe involving both old and new enemies of Moya's crew.

CHARACTERS

Players control a team of up to three characters at any one time, taking direct control of any of the team members whenever you wish. Characters not under direct control will act intelligently by defending the player, using items and behaving according to their personality.

The game features five playable characters offering unique skills that encourage team play. They include: Commander John Crichton, Officer Aeryn Sun, Ka D'argo, Chiana, and Pa' U Zotoh Zhaan.

ACTORS TO VOICE GAME

Actors from the hit TV series will be lending their voices to FARSCAPE: WAR AND PEACEKEEPERS, including:

Ben Browder.... "Commander John Crichton"
Claudia Black... "Officer Aeryn Sun"
Anthony Simcoe... "KA D'argo"
Gigi Edgley.... "Chiana"
Lani Tupu... "Crais / Pilot"
Jonathan Hardy... "Rygel XVI"
Virginia Hey... "Pa'U Zotoh Zhaan"

Recently named one of the year's ten best programs by New York Newsday, Farscape is now entering its third season on the SCI FI, airing Fridays at 9 p.m. The program stars Ben Browder, Claudia Black, Anthony Simcoe, Gigi Edgley, and Virginia Hey.
