German developer Gameforge signed a deal today to publish free-to-play, casual online browser games based on the Star Trek license. This represents the first high-level worldwide license Gameforge has acquired, previously being known for numerous original casual browser and client games such as Ikariam, Gladiatus and the incredibly popular Metin2. Gameforge said in their press release that the Star Trek license represents “the start of Gameforge’s global AAA expansion”. No word as of yet on what type of gameplay might be represented.
