BBC heralds next Doctor Who download game
Episode three imminent
Updated The BBC will post the third in its series of free, downloadable Doctor Who games "soon", the Corporation said today.
The third episode in the series of Adventure Games, the as-yet-untitled download sees the Doc swept out into space, leaving companion Amy Pond to explore his dimensionally transcendental time-and-space craft to find a way to get him back.
Players hoping for a classic monster to battle - they've already gone up against the Daleks and Cybermen in the two previous episodes - will instead be challenged by two new baddies. They'll also get to fly the Tardis.
Out shortly, the new episode will be free to UK residents, while overseas downloaders will have to cough up for the privilege.
More details from the BBC's Doctor Who website shortly.
It's out on 27 August - simultaneously on PC and Mac - and it's called Tardis. ®
Flying the TARDIS is all very well....
....but, any chance of a dip in the Pond....?
What if it shows up on P2P networks?
Will non-paying overseas downloaders be called freetardis?
Mine's the one with the jelly babies in the pocket. I'll come back for it last week.
I think Sumo Digital have done a good job on them for what they are... Also, don't forget Broken Sword creator Charles Cecil leads the production of these games too.
Will it be like the first one?
As in, tweaking the video settings means you have to re-run it from Windows every single time you change anything?
I downloaded it but that was just too annoying even for a die hard Who fan like me so I never played it.
these are less "games" and more tedious interactive stories. The action is too simple and the narrative linier. I know the Beeb have to appeal to a wide audience but I'd love to see a Dr Who game with real bite. I'd pay good money for one of those!
