Third title now Playable at 122 Dave & Buster’s locations across North America
April 2, 2019 – Redmond, WA – VRstudios, creator of turn-key multiplayer Virtual Reality (VR) attractions for Location-Based Entertainment (LBE) has announced a new exclusive experience for Dave & Buster’s proprietary multiplayer virtual reality simulator – “Star Trek: Dark Remnant”– an interactive intergalactic experience that is now available to play nationwide, thrusting players into a perilous rescue mission alongside the Enterprise at the edge of Klingon space.
Star Trek: Dark Remnant puts you in control of the U.S.S. Galileo, Starfleet’s latest and most advanced stellar research vessel, accompanying the U.S.S. Enterprise on a routine mission to evacuate a stellar observatory located in the middle of the Klingon Neutral Zone and learn more about the decaying neutron star it orbits. When the neutron star collapses prematurely it leaves the Enterprise incapacitated. It’s now up to YOU to protect her from stellar debris – and the unwelcome arrival of a Klingon ship out for vengeance.
With several completely different endings combined with other elements of variability, including subtle differences in gameplay, randomized player characters, and dialogue that responds real-time to your performance, Star Trek: Dark Remnant is never the same experience twice. You might even observe the fate of a poor redshirt ensign!
VRstudios and development partner Strange Reptile (veterans of The VOID, Disney, EA and Ubisoft) have brought the iconic world of Star Trekto life in a very rich and unique way. Players will encounter awe-inspiring vistas from their stations on a special research-observatory style bridge and will have a front row seat for dynamic and thrilling flybys of both the Enterpriseand a Klingon Battlecruiser. The action will be controlled through a sleek and special virtual interaction device that enables players to control the Galileo’sphasers, deflector shields, and sensors. Star Trek: Dark Remnantleverages both VRstudios’ and Strange Reptile’s years of work in Location-Based Virtual Reality, including VRstudios’ deep understanding of the Dave & Buster’s simulator.
“Players get a perspective of the Star Trekuniverse in a different way than they have experienced before –coming face-to-face with the Enterprisein all its beauty and splendor,” said Chanel Summers, VRstudios’ Vice President of Creative Development. “Working together with Strange Reptile on this title has enabled us both to use our complementary strengths to delight players with this unique Star Trekadventure. We have combined all the well-established frameworks of Star Trekwith some all-new story elements and characters, while also deliveringmultiple different endings to keep players coming back for more!”
