Doctor Who, BBC Worldwide, Tiny Rebel Games and Seed Studios have announced a new Doctor Who game for Android users, Doctor Who: Legacy.
Players will have the opportunity to face the Doctor’s most notorious enemies and relive the Doctor’s greatest triumphs.
Lee Cummings, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Tiny Rebel Games, said:
The 11th (or is it 12th?) Doctor’s regeneration is approaching fast. With decades of epic adventures to draw from, Doctor Who: Legacy is a loving homage created by loyal Whovians, and is rich in the show’s creative legacy and fun.
Combining easy to learn, hard to master mechanics with beloved characters and cunning villains, Doctor Who: Legacy will be a treat for fans, casual players and even the most hard-core gamers alike” says Lee Cummings, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Tiny Rebel Games
The game will feature favourite companions and allies from the show, starting with episodes and characters from the most recent two seasons of the show (here’s hoping Rory the Centurion makes an appearance, along with River Song). There will be additional free content added from Series 5 (Matt Smith’s first series) in the new year, and the game will go backwards through fifty years of Doctor Who history.
Music will is scored by acclaimed video game composer Chris Huelsbeck (who may be most famous for the original Turrican games on the C64 and Amiga), and the game will also feature the show’s iconic theme song, as recorded by Murray Gold.
Note that while press materials claim the game will appear on Wednesday (November 27), this may end up being Thursday for Australia. Still, if you’ve got a TARDIS handy, none of this will matter to you – do tell us what future episodes hold in the comments (and also the lotto numbers, cheers).
Join us in cheering GERONIMO & ALLONS-Y, as we countdown to the game materialising in the Google Play store and be sure to keep an eye on the @DoctorWhoLegacy Twitter account!
