Perpetual entertainment has announced that they will be posting a regular series of developer logs as the pace of production on Star Trek Online begins to pick up. The first log describes the process they use for designing the worlds and terrains in the game.
Welcome to the first edition of the STO DevLog, a periodic behind-the-scenes look into the development of Perpetual Entertainment's Star Trek Online. During the months before we're ready to roll out STO in a big, BIG way, we hope you'll make the DevLog the place to go for informative, entertaining, and intriguing peeks into the making of the most ambitious Star Trek game in the history of the galaxy.
I'm your host and STO Story Lead, Mike Stemmle. I'm also, as my friends, family, and coworkers can attest, an unabashedly rabid Trekkie. How rabid? Let's just say that music from Star Trek: The Motion Picture was played during my wedding ceremony and leave it at that, okay?
As a big ol' Star Trek fan, you'd think that the coolest part of my job is working with Gene Roddenberry's fabulous creations. And make no mistake, wiling away one's days adding to the legends of Kirk, Picard, and Sisko (among hundreds of others) is an exceptionally spiffy way to make a living.
