From Press Release:
SAN RAFAEL, CA — May 23, 2023 — Dramatic Labs, an independent game developer composed of Telltale Games veterans, in collaboration with Paramount Consumer Products, today revealed Star Trek: Resurgence, a new third-person choice-driven adventure game set within the iconic sci-fi universe. Star Trek: Resurgence is out now for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4 gaming consoles, (and will be playable on PlayStation 5 via backwards comparability) and exclusively on the Epic Games Store for PCs.
Star Trek: Resurgence is a bold interactive narrative game set shortly after Star Trek: The Next Generation’s timeline. A worker uprising threatens the tenuous peace between two alien civilizations, and Starfleet is forced to intervene. Players experience the conflict and larger mystery from two key perspectives. The U.S.S. Resolute’s First Officer Jara Rydek is part of the diplomatic envoy led by Ambassador Spock that’s tasked with finding a resolution – and uncovering the ultimate source of this tense situation. Engineering Crewperson Carter Diaz highlights how the mission plays out from the lower decks, caught up in the events in his own unique way.
“We’re thrilled that Dramatic Labs’ debut release, Star Trek: Resurgence, is out and available to fans around the world. Our team at Dramatic Labs couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve accomplished,” said Kevin Bruner, Founder of Dramatic Labs. “We can’t wait for Star Trek fans and those that adore rich narrative storytelling to experience a one-of-a-kind adventure, with the daring crew of the U.S.S. Resolute.”
Throughout the gripping story, players can interact with the Star Trek universe unlike ever before, with moments of authentic action and critical decisions that shape the broader narrative in subtle and unexpected ways, while discovering awe-inspiring alien species and spectacular locations across the universe. The seasoned team at Dramatic Labs is composed of twenty former Telltale developers, including Andrew Grant, former Lead Writer and Creative Director at Telltale; Dan Martin, former Lead Writer at Telltale; Kent Mudle, former Cinematic Director and Creative Director at Telltale; and Brett Tosti, former Executive Producer and Creative Director at Telltale.
“From Telltale Games to Dramatic Labs, telling nuanced and deeply layered stories in video games is in our DNA,” said Brett Tosti, Executive Producer on Star Trek: Resurgence. “This release marks the next stage in our evolution as game developers, utilizing our core learnings through years in the industry and taking this to the next level with a modern experience that is familiar yet wholly original.”
