Doctor Who: Legacy To CloseBookmark and Share

Sunday, 3 February 2019 - Reported by Marcus
Tiny Rebel Games have announced that the online game Doctor Who: Legacy will close in two weeks time.

Doctor Who: Legacy was launched in 2013 as a free-to-play game to coincide with the 50th Anniversary. Over time the game has evolved to include every incarnation of the Doctor from the television series (including the War Doctor) and well over 200 companions from both Classic and Modern Doctor Who.

The current licence to operate the game is ending shortly and the developers have decided not to renew it.

They issued a statement via the games Facebook page.

It is with a heavy heart we report that we are shutting down Doctor Who: Legacy effective two weeks from now.

Our agreement has ended with the BBC and we have chosen not to attempt another renewal.

We're incredibly proud of what we accomplished with our very first mobile game at Tiny Rebel, which this was. We set out with some wild ambitions about free to play and creating a fan-driven experience that put the player's experience first and never compelled you to spend money unwillingly.

We know there are some sore feelings about our transition to Doctor Who Infinity. They were never meant to be games put side by side. They are unique and represented a new challenge for our 2 person company. After 5 years of supporting a free to play game as a live service, we needed something new creatively to focus on and while we felt we could devote time to both, Infinity became a creative monster which took up an incredible amount of time and energy. We're very proud of that game as well which remains in soft launch while we finish up stories 4 and 5 for release in the Spring.

We also have a new, ambitious non Doctor Who project in its infancy which we will be spending the next two years on with some incredible partners and which you'll hear announcements about soon.
The game can be played offline after the shutdown, but will be removed from app stores in due course. All in-app purchasing will be turned off from today.

A final promo code has been released on the Facebook page.

This 31 level premium pack costs $4.99 USD, and players get 31 new levels as well as 20 new pixel costumes, and the allies associated with those costumes.

The pack also introduces Legacy's first wholly original enemy, the History Eater, as visually realized by artist, Pest Jiang, adapted by the PixelWho team, and based on a collaborative creation of the Legacy team and George Mann in association with the Doctor Who brand team.
