Doctor Who Infinity, a new game based on the BBC’s hit sci-fi series, is coming to PC, iOS and Android mobile services next spring.
Developed by Tiny Rebel Games Ltd and funded as a joint effort between the Welsh Government’s Media Investment Budget and British game publisher/developer Double Eleven Limited, the game is developed in close collaboration with Seed Studio along under official license from BBC Worldwide.
The game will “immerse players in comic book style puzzle adventures” according to a statement released on Wednesday, with each story-based adventure promised to have “its own unique art style and author. “
Tiny Rebel Games promises that “an incredible team of major British Doctor Who writers and internationally renowned UK-based comic book artists” will help bring the adventures to life.
“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,” said Susan Cummings for Tiny Rebel Games.
“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.”
Welsh Economy Secretary, Ken Skates, added: “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.”
With a soft launch in early Spring, Doctor Who Infinity will be live globally on PC, iTunes, and Google Play in late Spring 2018.
