NOTES

  • MGM granted a license for the first Stargate SG-1 PC and console game to Perception Pty — a young, Australia-based development house. Perception worked on the game as a labor of love, but was unable to bring the game to market before the company closed its doors.
  • Stargate SG-1: The Alliance is an action-adventure-puzzle developed for the PC, Xbox, and PlayStation 2. Originally scheduled for a fourth quarter 2005 release, the game was ultimately cancelled due to a falling out and legal dispute between the developer, Perception (who originally secured the Stargate license from MGM), and Austrian game publisher JoWooD (circa 2005 to 2007). The publisher accused the developer of failing to meet its quality standards, and the game was never completed.
  • In the game, players control Jack O’Neill, Samantha Carter, Daniel Jackson, and Teal’c (circa Season Eight) in new missions to save the galaxy. Anubis is on the move, scouring the galaxy for that which can grant him immeasurable power. The game also introduced an advanced new alien enemy to the Stargate universe, the Haaken.
  • The game features the voice acting of the show’s cast, including Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping, and Christopher Judge.
  • The video game-like simulation images that appear in SG-1‘s eighth season episode “Avatar” were produced by Perception, from The Alliance‘s art and game engine.
  • A few fans have gotten their hands on the game since Perception went out of business. As a result, there are lots of game-play footage videos on YouTube that show off the state of the game in its nearly complete form (including some cut-scene animation marked as place-holders).
