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 by 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 imaginableDoctor Who Infinity builds on the addictive puzzle gameplay of Doctor Who: Legacy to immerse players in comic book style puzzle adventures. Each story-based adventure has its own unique art style and author. To bring these original stories to life, Tiny Rebel Games has recruited an incredible team of major British Doctor Who writers and internationally renowned UK-based comic book artists to illustrate the stories.

We are delighted that Tiny Rebel Games recognizes the world-class creative talent present in Wales, especially in writing, art, and audio. 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.Lee Hutchinson, managing director of Double Eleven Limited added
As an indie publisher, we’re always looking for up and coming UK talent that we can support and this was a perfect opportunity for us to partner with Tiny Rebel Games in making an exciting new Doctor Who game. It also allows us to expand our expertise in mobile gaming whilst contributing our knowledge of the PC marketplace.Doctor Who: Legacy, released in 2013, quickly became one of most popular Doctor Who games of all time with over 2.5 million players and broadly spans the history of Doctor Who with every Doctor, hundreds of allies, companions, and monsters and includes extended universe content from Big Finish, Titan Comics, and BBC Books. Still popular four years later, the game continues to add new content weekly and is well over 120 hours of gameplay.
