GameCo Scores Star Trek Skill Game Licensing Deal
GameCo, a New York-based startup developer of skill-based games, recently secured a licensing agreement with CBS Consumer Products that will allow it to bring the fan-favorite Star Trek franchise to the skill-based video game gambling machines (VGM) industry.
The newly inked deal gives GameCo access to the various Star Trek titles owned by CBS, including The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise. the games developer says that it expects to launch its Deep Space Nine Adventure game, which will give players the chance to "take lead of the USS Defiant and battle their way to victory in immersive ship-to-ship combat" to casino floors this fall. This game will be the first in a series of Star Trek VGM titles.
“We are excited to work with CBS Consumer Products to bring a space battle action game to casino floors that highlight the entertainment value Star Trek is known for,” stated Rich Maryyanek, GameCo's person for Global Business Development.
GameCo plans to release another 10 VGM titles this year, including games based on popular film franchises like Paranormal, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Mission Impossible, and Ferris Bueller. The company already successfully launched its first skill-based video gambling game, Danger Arena, last fall at Caesars Entertainment's Atlantic City Casinos and at the Tropicana Atlantic city.
