Players can pre-register, or pre-order, for the thrilling new game on iOS, Android and Steam from today
Digital entertainment studio Maze Theory have announced the launch date for their new game created in partnership with BBC Studios. The cryptic ‘found-phone’ adventure game, Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins, starring Ingrid Oliver as Osgood, will launch on March 10th 2021. It will be available for iOS and Android mobile devices and also on Steam. Starting today, players can pre-register for access on iOS and Android devices. They can also pre-order or wishlist the game on Steam, with more news to follow on the Nintendo Switch version.
The game acts as a sequel to Blink, one of the most popular Doctor Who episodes of all time. Following their encounter with the Tenth Doctor, the Weeping Angels were trapped in the basement of Wester Drumlins. That is, until now… Merciless as ever, the Weeping Angels are back with a vengeance. Will you be able to uncover the truth and avoid their clutches? Now that the Weeping Angels have the power to infiltrate technology, no device is safe…
Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins has been developed by the award-winning studio Kaigan Games (Sara Is Missing, SIMULACRA). It thrusts players into a dark mystery amidst a series of sinister events occurring at Wester Drumlins. The decrepit house in London is supposedly uninhabited. But all is not what it seems as ex-UNIT scientist Petronella Osgood (played by Ingrid Oliver) enlists the player’s aid in tackling a familiar and lethal foe.

Filmed in London and Cardiff, the game sees players interacting with a mysteriously discarded phone in order to uncover its secrets and that of its former owner. Blurring the line between live-action footage and gameplay, players will need to piece together clues and work with Petronella Osgood to trace connections to the first horrific encounter within Wester Drumlins.
