Star Trek: The Video Game is not just another film tie-in says Paramount
Paramount is keen to emphasise that Star Trek: The Video Game is not just another dodgy film license.
The film studio is painfully aware that games of film licenses have a rotten reputation and they want to stress that they have work hard with developer Digital Extremes to make the best Star Trek game possible.
Paramount's executive producer on the game Brian Miller said, "Our goal was to make the most authentic Star Trek game we could. We're not a licensed game - we're funding this and making this ourselves. A traditional licensed game, you get a licensor and say they'll give you some money to make the game. This is a game that we're making in-house, and it's been funded by Paramount Pictures from day one."
He added, "There's a lot of stigma to movie-based games and there have been some that have done it well. But the majority haven't lived up to expectations, and that was something that we've been cautious of since the day we started making this game."
Star Trek: The Video is due out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on April the 23rd in North America and April the 26th in Europe.
