Last year it was announced that Tiny Rebel Games is set to bring Doctor Who to PC and mobile devices with the story-based puzzle adventure series Doctor Who Infinity, and now we have posters and trailers for the first two episodes, ‘The Dalek Invasion of Time’ and ‘The Orphans of the Polyoptra’.
The Dalek Invasion of Time will be the first episode on the Doctor Who Infinity platform. It is being written by George Mann, the critically-acclaimed author and screenwriter, including many Doctor Who stories; drawn by acclaimed artist and writer Mike Collins, known worldwide for his history of work with Doctor Who and other major comic properties; and colored by Kris Carter, who has a long history of working with properties such as Shrek, Torchwood and Doctor Who, among many others. The game is being narrated by actors Michelle Gomez, who reprises her TV series role as Missy; Ingrid Oliver, who reprises her TV series role as Osgood; and Bella Ramsey, who voices a new villain character Freya in the game.
Doctor Who Infinity’s second story The Orphans of the Polyoptra is being written by Gary Russell, writer for the Doctor Who TV series, novels and Doctor Who Magazine. The game’s art has been drawn by David Roach, noted inker of comic strips for Doctor Who Magazine; and colored by Dylan Teague, a noted comics artist and colorist for Doctor Who Magazine, DC Comics and others. The story is narrated by actor Katy Manning, who returns as Jo Grant, her role from the Doctor Who TV series, and also voices the enemy.
Doctor Who Infinity brings the world of the Doctor to life in a brand new game, which will introduce an innovative new platform for the delivery of episodic, comic-book style game adventures. Each story is being crafted as a collaboration between Tiny Rebel Games and Seed Studio, along with a broad team of UK-based talent including well known Doctor Who actors, writers and artists. Cardiff-based award-winning audio designer and composer Stafford Bawler is providing audio direction. The multi-story game is packed with engaging, original Doctor Who stories for players to play through and enjoy – and each adventure features its own unique art style and author.
The first two episodes of Doctor Who Infinity will be released this spring, with a further four stories slated to launch later in the year, and more to follow those.
