Star Trek game “emotionally hurt” JJ Abrams

Authored by


Did you play the recent Star Trek game? No? That’s probably for the best; even JJ Abrams director of Star Trek was hurt by it, emotionally, you cruel beasts. Apparently JJ Abrams actually worked with the developers for a while until he could see how the project was going to turn out.

Speaking to Gamerhub.TV Abrams said:

“[It] was obviously a big disappointment to me. We were actually involved from the very beginning and then we sort of realised that it was not going in a place where we were going to get what we wanted, so we dropped out and they continued to do it despite… y’know”

He continued to say he was actually hurt by the game:

“For me emotionally it hurt, ‘cos we were working our asses off making the movie and then this game came out and it got, this isn’t even my opinion, it got universally panned and I think that it was something without question that didn’t help the movie and arguably hurt it.”

At least Abrams isn’t living in a fantasy world rainbows and multi-coloured ponies I guess? Besides, I’ve played worse…

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    Why don’t the poor, Vulcan mass-murderer, JJ just pretend it’s in a so-called “alternate timeline”?

    i bet he was emotionally hurt because it didn’t have enough lens flare
