Bianca Beauchamp and Cindy Synnett were hired to play real life versions of Elexis Sinclaire and Jessica Cannon for E3 2006 and other promotional events for the launch of SiN Episodes: Emergence.

Dopefish

SiN Episodes: Emergence is one of many in a long line of games to feature a cameo by the Dopefish. An aquatic character created by Tom Hall. The Dopefish's first appearance was in Commander Keen 4: Secret of the Oracle.

Episodes

A total of nine episodes were planned in the SiN Episodes series, but because of the sale of Ritual Entertainment to MumboJumbo, SiN Episodes: Emergence was the only one released.

German version

There are a number of changes in the German version:
  • All blood and gore effects are removed. Despite contrary rumours, the original version only has gore for headshots and the Heavy Runner enemy type.
  • The ragdoll effects were replaced with a ragdoll-like standard animation.
  • When enemies are on fire, they burn for a shorter amount of time before dying and don't scream.
  • In the U4 Labs level, there is a cabin in which the player can transform a few grunts into mutants. Said cabin is empty in the German version.
A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com (German).

The security checkpoints at the docks, near the beginning of the game, display scrolling messages about prohibited items above the doorway, including;

No blades.
No bows.
Leave your weapons here.

This is a quote from the film, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.
