Alright so maybe the headline and announcement for Game of Thrones Ascent (Free) was a little too negative as I’ve actually spent some time with it I’ve started to really appreciate what developer Disruptor Beam did with the IP. The best way to sum it up is it’s a kingdom management free to play game, dripping with themes and fan service from the books and TV show. It’s still got all the trimmings of a free to play game like timers and crazy currencies, but it’s kept me coming back.
Anyway, the same developer just announced a new game, Star Trek Timelines, and I’m thinking this same gameplay formula will work quite well for the Star Trek universe which arguably is even more vast than Westeros. Check out the gameplay-free teaser trailer:
We don’t know much (or anything) about the game yet, but if they basically take Game of Thrones Ascent and make it Trekkie-friendly, they might have something really good on their hands.
