Note: SciFi recently rebranded to SyFy.

Sci Fi has partnered with Acclaim Games to develop a new series of online games and entertainment destinations. The partnerships will offer Sci Fi consumers a robust and imaginative series of immersive casual games that embody the broad appeal of the SCI FI brand.

Sci Fi recently announced the formation of Sci Fi Ventures, a long term growth initiative to develop a portfolio of media and non-media businesses into a global lifestyle brand, created to transcend the television screen and leverage the deep affinity the Sci Fi audience has with one of the world's biggest and most lucrative entertainment genres. The popularity of sci-fi/fantasy genre based titles and passion Sci Fi fans have for videogames make Sci Fi Games a natural component of the Sci Fi Ventures portfolio.

Acclaim will create an exclusive Sci Fi label and will jointly develop new games, with plans to extend these properties to other platforms, products, and forms of media. With close to 10 million players today, Acclaim Games, the successor of Acclaim Entertainment, is an online game company focused on bringing best-in-class games to consumers in North America and Europe. Since its reformation in 2006, the company has released twelve games, including its popular titles 9DRAGONS, 2MOONS and THE CHRONICLES OF SPELLBORN. Sci Fi's first game, TALES OF MAGIC, is expected to launch on scifi.com this spring.
