Today, Tiny Rebel Games Ltd. announced that Doctor Who Infinity, will be released worldwide in Spring 2018, under official license from BBC Worldwide.
The new game is being funded as a joint effort between the Welsh Government’s Media Investment Budget and British game publisher/developer Double Eleven Limited. It is being developed in close collaboration with Seed Studio along with a broad team of UK-based talent including well known Doctor Who actors, writers, and artists. Cardiff-based award-winning audio designer and composer Stafford Bawler will be providing audio direction for the game. Doctor Who Infinity will be released both on PC and on major mobile platforms.
“As executive producer on Doctor Who Infinity, it has been an incredible delight to be able to pull together such extraordinarily talented people to realize our ambitions for this new game. I am continually humbled by the quality of work they are doing, and I think Doctor Who fans everywhere are going to be amazed with how we have taken everything we have learned from making the award-winning gameplay of Doctor Who: Legacy and brought it to the next level in every way imaginable,” says Susan Cummings for Tiny Rebel Games.
Doctor Who Infinity builds ambitiously on the addictive puzzle gameplay of Doctor Who: Legacy to immerse players in comic book style puzzle adventures, beginning with The Dalek Invasion of Time, written by George Mann. Each story-based adventure has its own unique art style and author. To bring these original stories to life, Tiny Rebel Games has recruited an incredible team of major British Doctor Who writers and internationally renowned UK-based comic book artists to illustrate the stories.
Economy Secretary, Ken Skates says, “We are delighted that Tiny Rebel Games recognizes the world-class creative talent present in Wales, especially in writing, art, and audio. By moving their business here from Los Angeles last year, Tiny Rebel has given Wales a valuable opportunity. Enabling us to invest in and grow the country’s experience in the burgeoning video game industry, while also utilizing local talent. The fact that the company have now developed a Doctor Who game, which of course films in Cardiff, only adds to this ‘made-in-Wales’ success story.”
“As an indie publisher, we’re always looking for up and coming UK talent that we can support, and this was a perfect opportunity for us to partner with Tiny Rebel Games in making an exciting new Doctor Who game. It also allows us to expand our expertise in mobile gaming whilst contributing our knowledge of the PC marketplace,” says Lee Hutchinson, managing director of Double Eleven Limited.
Doctor Who: Legacy, released in 2013, quickly became one of most popular Doctor Who games of all time with over 2.5 million players and broadly spans the history of Doctor Who with every Doctor, hundreds of allies, companions and monsters and includes extended universe content from Big Finish, Titan Comics, and BBC Books. Still popular four years later, the game continues to add new content weekly and is well over 120 hours of gameplay.
With a soft launch in early Spring, Doctor Who Infinity will be live globally on PC, iTunes, and Google Play in late Spring 2018. Follow news about the game at www.tinyrebelgames.com , www.facebook.com/doctorwholegacy , www.twitter.com/doctorwholegacy.
