An interactive, intergalactic experience called “Star Trek: Dark Remnant” is being launched at Dave & Buster’s Entertainment locations nationwide.
Using a virtual reality simulator, VRstudios created a multiplayer experience that places players in a rescue mission alongside the Enterprise at the edge of Klingon space.
In the VR experience, the vessel is on a routine mission to evacuate a stellar observatory when a decaying neutron star it orbits collapses, leaving the vessel incapacitated.
The VR system provides several different endings and includes randomized player characteristics.
Players use a special virtual interaction device that allows them to control the vessel’s phasers and deflection shields.
“We combined all the well-established frameworks of 'Star Trek' with some all-new story elements and characters, while also delivering multiple different endings to keep players coming back,” stated Chanel Summers, VRstudios’ vice president of creative development.
