Doctor Who: Legacy is launching this week on Android and iOS. The free RPG puzzler has been developed by Tiny Rebel Games and Seed Studio, and appears to be episodic.
The game will launch this Wednesday, November 27 and appears to chart the history of Doctor Who in reverse chronological order. MCV reports that the game will start with content from “episodes and characters” found in seasons six and seven.
Series five will then drop in the new year. The site suspects that content will go all the way back to William Hartnell’s appearances in the 1960s.
In a statement, Tiny Rebel Games creative director and co-founder Lee Cummings said, “The 11th (or is it 12th?) Doctor’s regeneration is approaching fast. With decades of epic adventures to draw from, Doctor Who: Legacy is a loving homage created by loyal Whovians, and is rich in the show’s creative legacy and fun. Combining easy to learn, hard to master mechanics with beloved characters and cunning villains, Doctor Who: Legacy will be a treat for fans, casual players and even the most hard-core gamers alike.”
Gameplay details are still thin on the ground. We’ve got a pair of images here.
