Sci Fi Channel's Web site, www.Scifi.com will feature 15 new casual gaming titles this spring and summer, including games based on network series Battlestar Galactica and Warehouse 13, as part of its overall online game offerings, according to network executives.
The expansive new set will include four "casual massively multiplayer online games" that can be played without requiring users to purchase or install any special software to their computers.
The casual gaming titles include the Battlestar Galactica Cylon Combat Simulator, which allows users to shoot down enemy cylon ships, and Warehouse 13: Clean Up America's Attic based on the network's new summer series.
"There is a tremendous overlap between people who enjoy the imagination-based entertainment on Sci Fi and people who play games," said Craig Engler, senior vice president and general manager, Sci Fi Digital, in a statement.
"So expanding the Game Center is a natural fit not only for our audience but for our advertisers. By offering more casual MMOG's to our lineup, we're giving our visitors an experience that's much richer than a typical online game, but in a way that's still easily accessible from a simple browser window."
