Doctor Who Legacy
, the online game based on Doctor Who
, celebrates its first birthday next week, and to mark the event, Tiny Rebel Games
have announced some of their plans for the future of the series.
The game launched on the 27th November 2013
, with just two Doctors, and episodes from two seasons of the show. The series is now Doctor complete
in that every Doctor can be obtained and added to a team.
To celebrate, the first 4 levels of the next chapter prologue will be released over the next few days, this will see the 12th Doctor join the storyline. On or about the first Birthday of the game, the final 3 levels will be released, bringing the 4th Doctor into the storyline.
Also, on the game’s first birthday, a new expert level A Madman with a Box / Happy birthday Legacy!
, will be released, which will see the first Doctor face up against Zygon copies of all 13 Doctors. The level will drop the TARDIS+ “the bluest blue ever” now in grayscale along with 3 time crystals.
Over the course of Series 8, the team attempted to release content alongside each episode, around 24 hours after it aired in the USA. New levels based on encounters from the show were made available, and new enemies were added as they first appeared with new costumes available just hours after they appeared on the screen. Tiny Rebel Games
have thanked all those who worked to make this happen.
We are now very aware why nobody has tried this before. We wish to thank, from the bottom of our hearts, everyone who was part of the season 8 launch in Legacy. The production and licensing team at BBC Worldwide (esp our Producer, Peter Hickman), the amazing Doctor Who brand team, the production team in Cardiff, and the agents and representatives of the amazing stars who are now part of the Legacy world. We would like to thank those from the show who we’ve interacted with on social media, and a huge shout out to Pippa Bennett-Warner for joining us on our weekly Twitch show a few weeks back.
Future plans include the introduction of the Anthony Ainley
and Eric Roberts
versions of The Master, who join the Michelle Gomez
, John Simm
and Roger Delgado
versions, as the producers move towards having every incarnation of The Master up against every incarnation of The Doctor.
The Advent Calender will return in December with new allies, Doctor and costumes from the Titan Publishing
comic book series added to the game. Cinder, from the War Doctor novel, Engines of War,
will be added to the game. In a set of levels with a story written by “Engines of War” author George Mann
. Kylie Minogue
as Astrid will be joining the game as will Frank Skinner
as Perkins, and the team will also be launching content alongside the Christmas episode.
Also previewing in the Advent Calender will be Bigger on the inside
, a new side story in the Doctor Who: Legacy universe which will be released in chapters over the next few months. The expansive story will see individual arcs for the 10th, 1st, 4th, 9th and War doctors, and will see episodes from as far back as The Gunfighters
