Who says Niner fans get no joy. Today Gameforge, the world’s largest publisher of free-to-play browser games, issued a press release announcing they had chosen the Frankfurt developer Keen Games to produce their first Star Trek game, now titled "Star Trek® – Infinite Space”. The free-to-play casual browser-based game will be set in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine timeline.
“Bringing keen games on board to develop Star Trek – Infinite Space was an easy decision to make as keen has a strong history of producing outstanding titles,” said Ralf Adam, VP of Publishing at Gameforge. “Our production team will work closely with keen games to bring the vision we have for Star Trek – Infinite Space to fruition.”
“We have been incredibly excited about working on this project with Gameforge since day one,” said Antony Christoulakis, Creative Director at Keen games. ”Star Trek is one of those franchises that every science-fiction fan would give anything to work on. We consider ourselves very lucky to have this opportunity and we are highly committed to delivering a Star Trek experience fans can be proud of.”
Gameforge tapped keen games to develop the title in conjunction with expert Star Trek consultants Denise and Michael Okuda (see previous article). Based out of Frankfurt, Germany, Keen games is one of the country’s most established game developers with more than 17 years of experience working with numerous publishers in the industry.
