LIGHTMARE STUDIOS BEAMS IN STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION™ TO INFINITY WARS™

Brisbane - March 19 , 2014 - Independent Australian game developer Lightmare Studios today announced that Star Trek: The Next Generation™ will be coming to Lightmare Studios' recently-released animated, digital trading card game (TCG), Infinity Wars™ starting with new cards releasing this April.

Through its partnership with Iconicfuture, and under license by CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek: The Next Generation-themed cards will phase their way into the Infinity Wars Universe, and will allow players to place their favorite Star Trek characters in the captain's chair and send them into glorious battle. New factions, including Starfleet and the Klingon Empire will be introduced, along with an all-new play ability known as "Piloting."

"We are a small indie team but our latest incarnations, honoring the timeless Star Trek: The Next Generation, have never made me so proud of our crew," exclaimed Lightmare Studios CEO, Elphie Coyle. "This, along with our recent expectation-shattering success on Steam Early Access, the upcoming Mobile Companion App, and our supportive fans, makes me believe that we are poised to make solid dent in the TCG Multiverse with Infinity Wars."

With over 2.5 million matches played since its public release in February, Infinity Wars features mechanics and tactics that revolutionize the way gamers play and interact with TCGs. Players' minds will need to be quick if they wish to succeed in head-to-head battles with simultaneous turn-based combat.

Featuring a fully open trading space, events, tournaments, and a helpful and engaging community, Infinity Wars is one of the most intuitive strategy TCGs to date. Players can earn, sell, trade, buy, and win new cards for use within the game; pulling the best from the physical TCG world to make TCGs more accessible to a wider audience and paving a new path for the eSports community.
