It’s a Stargate: Atlantis reunion! Jewel Staite (Stargate‘s Jennifer Keller), David Hewlett (Stargate‘s Rodney McKay), and Rainbow Francks (Stargate‘s Aiden Ford) have all assumed major roles on a new 3D web comic series titled State of Syn. Additionally, fans will be happy to hear the voice of Torri Higginson (Stargate‘s Elizabeth Weir) in the opening narration of each webisode.
This science fiction web drama created by Daniel Dales and Jarett Sherman, features a combination of voice-overs, photography, and comic still drawing and animation. Directed by Jed Weintrob, State of Syn plays out like a live comic in approximately five-minute segments; similar in length to a single issue. The images serve as moving panels, transporting the viewer from one scene to the next. Adding to cross-platform element of the show, the fans can also get involved with an “interactive companion game for IOS and Android devices.”

Th ambitious part comes in the promise that the MMO (massively multiplayer online) game will be free-to-play, and that it will be made on a specially designed engine allowing for a full-on 3D browser-based experience that’s able to present console-level graphics, characters, and environments with NO need for a client download.
