After a mid-space collision, the Doctor, Amy and Rory crash land on Earth, 1605 AD. Here they discover that a mothership belonging to the Sontaran’s age-old enemy, the Rutan Host, is on Earth. The only problem – the ship is buried deep below the site upon which the House of Lords has now been built.
Meanwhile, a secret society of malcontents is plotting to overthrow the Government by planting gunpowder beneath the House of Lords. Two members of this society are exposed in our story – Robert Catesby and Guy Fawkes. The 14th plotter, hitherto undisclosed in the history books, is a shape-shifting Rutan, who, by infiltrating the plotters and controlling their plans can have her ends met – the launch path cleared for her mothership, deep below the foundations of the House of Lords.
And so the Doctor, Amy and Rory must find a way to stop the plotters, the Sontarans and the Rutans, all of whom are intent on blowing something (if not everything!) to pieces.
This game puts the player in the shoes of one of the TARDIS crew, exploring the streets and communities of 1605 London, to become embroiled in the Gunpowder Plot as it draws to its explosive conclusion. The aim is to get beneath Parliament to stop the aliens starting a war on Earth, ensure that Guy Fawkes is arrested, everyone inside the House of Lords is safe – and above all, make sure history stays on its correct path.
