Farmingdale, NY, Aug. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cemtrex Inc. (Nasdaq: CETX, CETXP, CETXW), a world leading technology and manufacturing company, today announced that the Company and Best-Selling author, B. V. Larson, have entered into an exclusive licensing agreement to develop and publish video games based on the author's popular series, Star Force.
B. V. Larson is the author of more than fifty books with over two million copies sold. His fiction regularly tops the bestseller charts. Star Force is a military, science fiction book series written by Mr. Larson. Larson started the space opera Star Force series in December 2010 with the publishing and release of the first novel, Swarm. Star Force is a fast paced, action packed series that is real page turner, filled with nearly non-stop warfare and futuristic technology.
The agreement grants Cemtrex exclusive rights to publish games on VR, console, PC, and handheld devices. The Company plans to prioritize the development of virtual reality (VR) games for the Star Force series.
Cemtrex's Chairman and CEO, Saagar Govil, said, "We are immensely excited to collaborate with B.V. Larson on bringing this great series to life in virtual reality. Based on the vast universe that he has created in Star Force, we see tremendous opportunity to create amazing VR experiences and games around this content that will appeal to his massive fanbase as well as attract new fans into the series."
"At Cemtrex we believe that virtual reality will revolutionize the way stories are told and experienced. Whereas books and movies allow people to read and watch their favorite stories, virtual reality will allow them to play and live the story through the first person in a fully immersive way that has never been done before. We see an enormous opportunity over the long term to bring both fiction and non-fiction to virtual reality for truly unique immersive experiences," added Mr. Govil.
Cemtrex plans to release its first game around the Star Force series in 2019.
