The Stargate wiki last edited by AtomicEdge on 07/22/14 07:29AM View full history

Overview

Based on the 1994 film (starring Kurt Russel), Stargate involves a team of adventurers traveling through an ancient ring device, known as the Stargate, which creates a stable wormhole to hundreds of other worlds. There was then a television series, Stargate SG-1, which continued the story of the movie and went on for ten seasons. The spin off, Stargate Atlantis, was created in 2004 and was dropped in its fifth season. A third series, Stargate Universe lasted for 2 seasons after cancellation due to mixed reviews and poor viewership figures. There have been two Direct-to-DVD films for SG-1; The Ark of Truth, which finished the Ori story arc, and Continuum, which ended the story arc regarding the clones of the system lord Baal. A third movie, named Extinction, was planned, but was shelved indefinitely following Stargate Universe's cancellation according to executive producer Joseph Mallozi.

Games

Stargate

A game based on the events of the film, Stargate was a 2D side-scroller, common for games of its time featuring limited elements of flight.

Stargate SG-1: The Alliance

A first person shooter based off of the unreal engine, Stargate SG-1: The Alliance would see SG-1 fight a new enemy, the Haaken, created by the show's writers specifically for the game. However, legal proceedings over the rights of the game proved fatal to its development and release, meaning the game was never released.

Stargate Online Trading Card Game

An online version of the Stargate themed card game operated by SOE. The game allowed you to buy expansion packs and passes to enter tournaments which would give packs as prizes, a feature found in the much later in the Blizzard card game Hearthstone. The game was shut down causing all cards purchased with real money to be lost. Payments for virtual cards were still being taken on the day the game was shutdown.

Stargate Worlds

An MMORPG which would have allowed players to create a character in the Stargate universe, and travel to other worlds to fight the opposing alliance. Its combat system featured a unique real time cover system, as well as mini-games to complete tasks. SGW was in development for a 2009 release but was delayed due to problems with MGM funding among other things, and has now been canceled. Very few assets for the game were ever released.

Stargate Resistance

A spin off of Stargate Worlds which was originally conceived to assist with funding for that game. Stargate Resistance was a third person shooter set in the second decade of the Stargate program which allows players to battle as either Stargate command or the Goa'uld. Stargate Resistance's servers were shut down one year after its release due to the end of a license with MGM, leaving copies of the game useless.

Stargate SG-1: Unleashed

An iOS and Android adventure game which features the original members of SG-1.Two of the three episodes of the game have been released so far on iOS, and only the first one on Android. The studio that was making Unleashed, Arkalis Interactive, went out of business, but the rights have been picked up by a company called RegalWorks Media, Inc. Some hope they will complete work on the series.

Teal'c's Revenge

An iOS and Android shooter and fighting game in which the player takes on the role of Teal'c in protecting the SGC against attack by the Goa'uld. This can be found inside the "Stargate Command" app, which also includes a tour of Stargate command and other mini games. Plans to expand on this app were cut short when the company Arkalis Interactive, went out of business.
