“As an avid video game player, I have been enjoying the collaborative product development process and working in a new form of media to create a video game based on ‘Alias,’” added J.J. Abrams, Creator and Executive Producer of “Alias.” “Having the continuity of our cast and writers being involved with this project ensures that the video game will reflect the series’ production values and definitive style.”
“I’m very excited to be part of this game, which is testimony to our show’s loyal fans and talented production team,” said Jennifer Garner, who plays “Alias” lead character, Sydney Bristow. “In working with the developers, I was extremely impressed with how they captured the look and feel of the show, especially my ‘virtual Sydney’ character.”
“With the convergence of Hollywood and video games, Alias is a perfect example of how interactive entertainment has accelerated to the next level,” said Bruce Gersh, Vice President of Business Development at ABC. “The fascinating and strong character of ‘Alias’’ Sydney Bristow is so engaging on the TV screen, and her ‘virtual Sydney’ is equally mesmerizing in the video game.”
“Alias is an important initiative in our strategy of producing games that reach not only the core gaming community, but an older segment of the video game market through our newly formed label, Buena Vista Interactive,” said Graham Hopper, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Buena Vista Games, Inc. “Alias is another example of the match of a great franchise becoming a great game.”
