The SCI FI Channel and SciFi.com are launching consumer game site Fidgit today. Fidgitâ€™s fun and factual games will feature the language and attitude of gamers, but will be designed to appeal to both genre and non-genre game players.
The Web site will include game reviews, coverage of industry trends and game play, analysis of game creations and news about the latest games and game makers. Fidgit will further appeal to gamers by highlighting players, game hacks, virtual Easter eggs and cheats. Readers will be able to submit images of screen grabs, player photos and player dress-ups.
Tom Chick, a professional writer on the video gaming industry for more than 15 years, will be Fidgitâ€™s content editor.
â€œWeâ€™re thrilled to have Tom working on Fidgit, which is the next step in expanding the Sci Fi brand into content areas that we know our users are excited about and where we see significant advertising potential,â€ Craig Engler, senior VP of SciFi.com and Sci Fi Magazine, said in a statement.
Fidgit is the latest expansion of the Sci Fi brand on the Web following the success of SciFi.comâ€™s tech site DVICE.
