Perception Pty

Perception is a media entertainment company working in the games, film and television space. The company claims to be working on a video game for the PC and console platforms and to be in pre production on an animated television series & Sony PSP game. The company has staff in based Sydney, Melbourne and Vienna.

The company announced via it's website in December 2007 that it was working on a licensed game as well as an animated TV series called "The Four Horsemen". However, by May 2008, this information had been removed.

History

Perception began in 1995 as a small animation and sound studio, but by 1998 had expanded into the video game market. Between 1998 and 2004, two products were developed primarily for the coin-op arcade market; Thunderboats and Top Down Racer, but neither were financial successes. Thunderboats was planned to be ported to the Sega Dreamcast game console, but the project was cancelled.

In 2004, the company successfully negotiated with MGM entertainment to develop a new video game based on the Stargate television series. Unfortunately, MGM cancelled the deal some time in late 2005 or early 2006 and all staff were made redundant (with the exception of the CEO and his assistant).

Digital and Voice Media approached Perception in 2006 to negotiate a take-over, but the deal fell through a few months later.

In November 2007, Perception announced that they were suing their former publisher for damages.
