Ex-Telltale Developers Are Developing a New Star Trek Game
Dramatic Labs was founded by former Telltale Games developers ( The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us), Game of Thrones and Minecraft Story Mode). It is called Star Trek. Resurgence and it is ( Reports GameSpot). A third-person narrative adventure set in 2380, immediately after the events of Star Trek.
The studio, which advertises itself as an “independent collaboration of writers, developers and designers, artists and producers who are passionate about the future interactive storytelling,” announced Star Trek Rebirth at the 2021 Game Awards. You can also watch a trailer from the studio, which you will find below.
Star Trek: Resurrection is a unique story set in Star Trek’s universe. It will essentially take place aboard the U.S.S. Resolute and feature two playable characters: Jara Rydek, the first officer, and Carter Diaz. They will try to stop a war between two alien factions. The trailer also shows that the story will include appearances by well-known Star Trek characters. (Unless Spock isn’t Spock?) This is Spock.
GameSpot noted that Dramatic Labs’ team includes several ex-Telltale talents, including Andrew Grant, former creative director and lead writer at the studio, and Kent Muddle, cinematic director and Dan Martin. This will be a classic Telltale Games adventure. Kevin Bruner, the founder of Dramatic Labs, made the following statement about the game:
Star Trek fans consider it an honour to create a story that puts them in the middle of the action. This will allow them to make crucial decisions impacting the whole narrative. This game was built from the ground up with Epic’s Unreal Engine and our proprietary narrative engine. It showcases our team’s progress in creating story-rich, thought-provoking adventures.
Star Trek Resurgence will be available for P.C. (exclusively to the Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4/5, and Xbox consoles in early to mid-2022. We have a great feeling for this one, Telltale fans.
