Free to Play Star Trek MMO Interview

Posted Jun 14, 2010 by Michael Bitton

Free to Play Star Trek MMO Interview's Garrett Fuller spoke to Gameforge's VP of Publishing Ralf Valm to discuss the newly announced casual friendly Free-to-Play MMO based on the Star Trek IP.

Tell us about how you got the Star Trek IP to create the game?

Ralf Valm - VP of Publishing:

We came into contact with CBS through our extensive international network. We were looking for an IP that would translate well into a free-to-play game and works for a broad consumer base. Star Trek is one of those brands that appeal to people all around the world and from all age groups. Under the license agreement, Gameforge will publish casual free-to-play browser and social media games, starting in 2011.

What plans do you have to reach fans of Star Trek and bring them into the game?

Ralf Valm - VP of Publishing:

The Star Trek franchise offers a great variety of different universes, timelines and stories, which gives us a broad pool of settings to pick from for our games. Our expertise lies in developing and publishing free-to-play games that appeal to people all over the world because they are easily accessible and provide fun gameplay for years to come. For our upcoming games under the agreement, we want to bring both Star Trek and browser gaming fans high quality experiences that will entertain them for a long time. The first two games we will release in 2011 will cover different settings from the universe: One will be a Facebook game, the other a browser game. They will also be different in tone and style.
