Translating an Iconic Universe into a Video Game

Date TBA


There are few fandoms so iconic that they span cultures & generations, Star Trek is one of those -- with a lifetime of lore and new stories still unfolding. It has seen different mediums offering fans an extension of this world but what does it take to develop & translate this universe into video games & what makes a good partner for this beloved franchise? The panel will discuss how Scopely, a leading mobile games company, works with their partners at ViacomCBS to immerse fans into the Star Trek metaverse in ways that deepen the connection to every character & arc, putting them in control of how they interact with the story. They will speak to the process of bringing characters from generations of this universe to life on mobile & share advice for others in entertainment.
