Doctor Who? Doctor Turner. That's Who.
In recognition of the 50th Anniversary of the great sci-fi series, Trilobyte Games is proud to offer Tender Loving Care at a reduced price. What do these two Doctors have in common? Read on!
TLC, starring John Hurt, is a provocative, psychological thriller that lifts the touch screen entertainment experience to new heights.
"...a great and fascinating combination of computer game and movie.” - McDonald's Kino News
"... one of the most effective interactive films that has ever entered the mainstream market." - Digital Bayou
"... an engaging, interactive movie for grown-ups ..." - The Portland Oregonian
Starring two-time Oscar-nominee and 4 time BAFTA winner John Hurt (Alien, V for Vendetta), and based on a novel by Andrew Neiderman (Devil’s Advocate), TLC provides all of the pleasures of a traditional motion picture while satisfying the voyeuristic and self-analytic interests engaged by its unique interactive elements. TLC is not like other so-called interactive movies; its design is unprecedented in that the viewer’s psyche is the invisible director of the tale, determining both character and plot development every step of the way. The possible alternative versions of the experience are virtually infinite.
You, the viewer, must help psychiatrist Doctor Turner (John Hurt) unveil the desperate triangle of power, lust, and deception formed by his beautiful, tragic patient, her dangerous husband, and the enigmatic, seductive psychotherapist who suddenly enters their lives. Your own psyche becomes the key to what happens on the screen. Your answers to Doctor Turner’s probing questions about the characters’ behavior, and about your own personal psychology, invisibly determine the course of action and outcome of the story. TLC is a sort of virtual biofeedback device that senses your desires, needs, and fears, and then shapes its story to reflect, and satisfy, your deepest cravings. You, too, become one of Doctor Turner’s patients. You can read your own developing personality profile after each Q&A session with the Doctor, and receive ongoing psychological analysis throughout the game.
Tender Loving Care is an absolutely unique experience, combining high-end movie production with computer game-like interactivity for the first time. It’s also the very first title made specifically for iPad years before there was an iAnything; it’s not a re-purposed movie you’ve seen before, or a ported-over computer game. TLC takes full advantage of touch screen technology in a way no one else has even imagined before now.

Tender Loving Care is a big file, nearly 1 GB. It is best downloaded to iTunes and then synced with your device.
Tender Loving Care was created by David Wheeler and Rob Landeros, co-founders of Aftermath Media. David Wheeler wrote and directed TLC, and Rob was the Creative Director and Designer for the project. Both have extensive experience in entertainment media and are keenly interested in exploring ways to further the art of storytelling through the most advanced interactivity options available with new media technologies. Indeed, they’ve established themselves at the forefront of a new style of movie-making by trail-blazing both the concept and execution of “enhanced movie experiences.” The iOS version was produced by Trilobyte Games and Hennes Productions and designed by Landeros to create a modern touch screen based interactive movie.
