Gameforge will invite players from around the globe to explore strange new worlds and uncharted territories in its newly dubbed free-to-play casual browser-based game, Star Trek® – Infinite Space, set in the Deep Space Nine timeline. To unfold the gripping story and the immersive experience for Star Trek – Infinite Space, the publisher has enlisted award-winning developer keen games to lead development on the title.
Gameforge tapped keen games to develop the title in conjunction with expert Star Trek consultants Denise and Michael Okuda. 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.
Renowned computer game music composer Chris Hülsbeck became famous with his soundtracks for milestone games such as Turrican 2 and The Great Giana Sisters. Today, he can look back on 25 years' experience in the computer games industry. In 2008, the Cologne based WDR Radio Orchestra performed 'Symphonic Shades', a classical re-interpretation in honor of his music. Hülsbeck marked the 8-bit era as one of its outstanding musicians and stands as an example for many of today's DJs.
"This commission is a great honor, to work on a Star Trek product was a dream that has now come true," Hülsbeck explains.
Ralf Adam, Gameforge's Executive Producer, adds, "We are all very proud of being able to enlist such an outstanding artist. Chris Hülsbeck has decisively influenced a whole generation of computer games."
A first taste of the soundtrack can be downloaded free at the official website, while the entire soundtrack will be available as a free download when the game releases, in line with the free-to-play-tradition.
