I can’t believe this is really happening. I am so excited for it!
Okay, so other than me being a massive fan of Pokemon and Blackpink, which you may have read some of my articles on those, I want to share that I am also a huge fan of the Doctor Who series.
So here’s a little background for you guys. Doctor Who is a British sci-fi tv series produced by the BBC since 1963. The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord called “the Doctor“, an extraterrestrial being, to all appearances human. The Doctor explores the universe in a time-travelling space ship called the TARDIS which looks like a Blue Police Phone Box.
On with the news. Malaysian gaming studio called Kaigan Games is now working on a Doctor Who mobile game. It’s called Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins. The studio have previously worked on horror games such as Sara Is Missing and the Simulacra series.
Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins will be a “found phone” concept game. It involves the Wester Drumlins “uninhabited home” that fans will be familiar with. Players will be working with scientist Petronella Osgood and other characters from the series to get the truth behind a “sinister series of events” taking place there.
Other than Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins , BBC also announced the Doctor Who: The Edge Of Reality, a VR title that’s the sequel to last year’s The Edge Of Time. In this, you’ll be joined by the 10th Doctor, in addition to the 13th Doctor returning.
So when can expect these games t be released? Both games will be released sometime in Spring 2021. The Lonely Assassins will be available on Android, iOS, and even the Nintendo Switch while The Edge Of Reality will be available on PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.
