BBC America has posted a short interview with Daniel James, one of the creators of the Doctor Who: Worlds In Time online game. He wears a Fourth Doctor-ish scarf. One of their office doorways is a TARDIS. As far as secret handshakes that establish your street cred go, it’s pretty convincing.
The Doctor Who MMO that launched in open preview yesterday? Here’s the trailer for it.
Again, it’s still in preview mode so they would probably love feeback (of the constructive variety.)
We’ll be playing later today.
So this happened today:
BBC launched a Doctor Who Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game. It’s called Doctor Who: Worlds In Time and it looks like ^this^.
BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment and Games today announced the open preview launch of Doctor Who: Worlds in Time, the new browser-based, free-to-play multiplayer online game.
Beginning today at DoctorWhoWIT.com, Doctor Who fans and gamers everywhere can enjoy the mystery and community of Doctor Who: Worlds in Time, which draws on the rich mythology, locations and excitement of the beloved television show.
Doctor Who: Worlds in Time is designed for devotees of the show looking for a quick pick-up-and-play game, and life-long gamers and sci-fi enthusiasts seeking increased social engagement. Players choose among four races and endless possible character combinations to create their avatars. They can join together in missions identified by the mysterious Time Lord to defend civilization by undertaking interventions against infamous villains bent on creating chaos and destruction in the universe. Throughout the game, players will explore deep immersive worlds (e.g., Skaro, Messaline, The Library and New New York) featuring iconic monsters (e.g., Daleks, Cybermen and Weeping Angels), delivering the authentic experience of being part of the Doctor Who realm.
Have you played it yet? What do you think?
Wethinks we should try a DW Tumblr meetup in game, no?
