Can’t say I have much faith in this coming from the studio behind such classics as “My Friend Peppa Pig” and upcoming gems like another “My Little Pony” game, but maybe it’ll be fine.
Outright Games is just the publisher, the actual developer is Tessera Studios, who I’ve not heard of before, but they seem to have a much more adult/advanced portfolio, so there’s hope yet it might be more sophisticated than others.
Oof, can’t believe I missed that – I work in games journalism ffs, I should be on the ball. LOL.
Great catch, Matt, thank you!
Ah… The giants.
Prodigy is aimed at kids. It’s a nice show and i’m glad its been able to appeal to adult viewers, but let’s not be too annoyed that tie-in products are being produced alongside other stuff for kids. Because that’s the target audience.
Made by a company who’s produced stuff for Peppa Pig, My Little Pony, Paw Patrol, and Hotel Transylvania? That’s a good thing.
“Another” My Little Pony game? What was the first – one of the mobile games? Did they do one of those? I know the Gameloft one…
I’d actually hoped for a really good one back in the PSP era, but one never materialized, and I’d assume one done now would be for G5 rather than G4, but oh well…
Very sweet! It’ll be great to have a game with this ship and crew.
And now we have both this and Star Trek: Resurgence to look forward to. When was the last time there were multiple video games in development and upcoming simultaneously in this franchise?
I really need to add some storage space on my PS4…
Ooops, forgot Star Trek: Lower Decks – TBD!
I do of course know that’s a mobile game and not for PCs or consoles, but still…
All well and good, but WHEN IS THE REST OF S1 COMING?? JC shippers are going nuts lmao
