The Adventure Games - Recommissioned

The Adventure GamesThe BBC has recommissioned The Adventure Games for a second series, due to be released next year.

Series One of The Adventure Games has been a great success with over 1.6 million downloads so far. Three parts of the four part story have so far been released, with the final part due out later this year.

UK players can download the game free of charge from the BBC official site while Windows users outside the UK can purchase and download the game from Direct2Drive.

The new series will be developed by the same team with Steven Moffat, Piers Wenger, Beth Willis and Anwen Aspden producing and it will be developed by Sumo Digital.

The BBC’s head of multiplatform in vision Simon Nelson told MCV:
Given the success of the first series, we'd be daft not to recomission. But it's not just about the numbers; the feedback we've had has been overwhelmingly positive. Our audience has been introduced to a new form of drama – and, for many, these have been the first computer games they have downloaded. We've set new standards in audience participation - and we think we've really helped push the concept of families actively playing together. I can't wait to see what the team does next.
