SCi to publish Jason And The Argonauts game?

Recent US trademark filing indicates the UK publisher has plans for more vintage movie to game action

SCi has always had something of a fetish for old movie licenses, and it would appear that Wandsworth-based publisher has plans to turn its attention to 1963 action classic Jason And The Argonauts.

A March 16th filing on the US Patent and Trademark Office website reveals that the UK firm has registered the trademark for the world famous film, but as it stands that's all that that anyone knows about the game-to-be, with SCi keeping tight lipped about its plans for the time being.

SCi has a long history of plucking the less obvious film licenses up, including the original Italian Job, and the thus-far mysterious Reservoir Dogs, among others, and the prospect of slicing up skeletons with a sword in Jason And The Argonauts certainly has a timeless appeal.

Rumours that Jez San of Edgeware-based developer Argonaut has been coaxed out of self-imposed coding retirement to lend his development talents to the project have been firmly denied...
