Tiny Rebel Games has announced Doctor Who Infinity for launch in Spring 2018.
The publisher behind Doctor Who: Legacy, the puzzle RPG launched in 2013, has dropped some details on its next release. Doctor Who Infinity will have a story-driven structure and a decidedly comic book style of graphics.
The Dalek Invasion of Time
To that end, the first episode – The Dalek Invasion of Time – will be penned by regular Doctor Who comics writer George Mann. Meanwhile, the artwork will be supplied by comics veteran Mike Collins.
Collins has a history with Doctor Who dating back to 1987. He’s worked as a storyboard artist for both Doctor Who and Class. Mann continues to write for the Titan range of Doctor Who comics and is currently promoting his new book ‘Wychwood‘.
When, what and where?
Doctor Who Infinity will be available to download on iOS, Android and PC early next year. The first story takes the Twelfth Doctor and Missy across time to take on the Daleks. If it’s anything like Doctor Who: Legacy, there’s bound to be some easter eggs that the discerning Whovian will appreciate. Not to mention some unlockable content that will make for an addictive time.
“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, executive producer for Tiny Rebel Games.
Made in Wales
Doctor Who Infinity has been developed with funding from the Welsh Government’s Media Investment Budget. The scheme was started in 2014 as a way to promote the Welsh media industry and contributed towards last year’s film ‘Their Finest‘ starring Bill Nighy.
“We are delighted that Tiny Rebel Games recognizes the world-class creative talent present in Wales, especially in writing, art, and audio,” says Economy Secretary Ken Skates. “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.”
