Tiny Rebel Games announces an exciting new game

Looking for something to occupy your time during the long wait until Series 11? Well, Tiny Rebel Games are back with something exciting.

Licensed by BBC WorldWide, Doctor Who Infinity is a new role-playing puzzle game for PC and mobile due to be released next spring.
The game is similar in style to their previous game, Doctor Who: Legacy, with gem matching challenges whilst building a team of Doctors and companions through a story. This time, there's more of a focus on comic book style artwork and adventures.

Susan Cummings Executive Producer for Tiny Rebel Games, told RadioTimes.com:
"We aren’t revealing many gameplay details at this time, so early on, but what we can tell you is that there will be many differences revealed at launch. This isn’t a sequel [to the company’s current Doctor Who game Doctor Who: Legacy, see below], this is a new platform for delivery of stories written by well-known Doctor Who writers.

Whilst the core mechanic of manipulating detachable gems is still present, we’re going massively beyond what we’ve done – or honestly what anyone has done – to create rich narratives that our players will engage with in a wide variety of ways, to experience Doctor Who stories like never before."
The first of the stories, The Dalek Invasion of Time, is written by Doctor Who novelist George Mann with art by Mike Collins and will star the Twelfth Doctor and Missy.
Further stories will have different creative teams and art styles. In a press release, Cummings added:
"As Executive Producer on Doctor Who Infinity, 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 with 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 imaginable."
Doctor Who Infinity is funded in a joint venture between British game publisher/developer Double Eleven Limited and the Welsh Government’s Media Investment Budget, following developer Tiny Rebel Games’ move to Wales last year.

The game is set to have a "soft launch" in early spring 2018 and will be available on PC, iTunes and Google Play shortly after.
