Doctor Who adventure game coming out at Xmas
We’re all looking forward to the Doctor Who Christmas special (or most of us, probably), which this year is based on A Christmas Carol, and has guest stars including Michael Gambon and opera singer Katherine Jenkins.
But the good news for game playing Doc fans is that another in the adventure games series is set to be released as an extra stocking filler.
The fourth and final episode in this series of Doctor Who: The Adventure Games will be unleashed for download just after the TV special has finished on Christmas day. You’ll be able to bag it from here for the PC and Mac, as a free download.
This instalment is entitled Shadows of the Vashta Nerada, and is about the tiny microscopic horrors which lived in the shadows of the intergalactic library and happily munched their way through living beings.
The game takes place at Xmas, of course, although it’s not likely to be a white Christmas, more of a wet one, as the setting is the underwater colony of Poseidon. Apparently the plot revolves around a real-world conspiracy, although the developer is revealing scant else about the exact nitty gritty.
Steven Moffat, Executive Producer of Doctor Who, commented: “We’ve gone all-out for the season finale. Shadows of the Vashta Nerada takes place entirely underwater – something which would be impossible for the TV series, as water is so expensive. It’s thrilling, terrifying, educational and fun. Just steer clear of those shadows…”
Don’t forget your arm bands. More Doctor Who adventure games are planned to run alongside the next series in 2011.
