Jelly-baby anyone? Dr Who free downloadable games announced

Posted by | May 30, 2010

First, we started seeing results about Doctor Who games on a Games Blog on the Guardian. And here’s what we found:

The BBC has announced that it’ll be releasing four Doctor Who Adventure Games to tie in with the latest series of the hit sci-fi show. Mac and PC owners will be able to download each episode from the Doctor Who website, starting in June.

Following through we wandered our way into the BBC article “Doctor Who: The Adventure Games” and then, suddenly, amazement flooded.

Now this should catch our attention.

These four new adventures will take the form of free downloadable computer games available for PC and Mac, in which players assume control of the Doctor and Amy as they embark on new adventures which complement the new TV series.

Doctor Who: The Adventure Games has been produced by a team drawing on the very best talent from TV and gaming. The interactive episodes are executive produced by Steven Moffat, Piers Wenger, Beth Willis, along with Anwen Aspden (BBC Wales Interactive) and Charles Cecil – one of videogaming’s most revered creators.

The different episodes so far seem to list both the Daleks and the Cybermen! We will be looking forward to announcing direct links for people to access these games when they come out and possibly reviews of them as well. As all of the voces are avid Doctor Who fans—mostly the classics—but some of us do like the new ones as well. There’s no reason why this franchise should go without praise and cheer.
