A new Doctor Who game is coming to iOS and Android.
Kaigan Games is bringing a new mobile iteration of the beloved British sci-fi series to our devices. Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins has players uncover and decipher the mystery of a ‘found phone’, which unravels a series of events taking place at the iconic uninhabited home featured in the now-famous ‘Blink’ episode from the TV show.
The game, involving the mystery of a missing person and the return of Doctor Who’s iconic Weeping Angels, also sees the return of several classic Who actors including Ingrid Oliver and Finlay Robertson.
Using a phone interface similar to games like Simulacra and A Normal Lost Phone, popular Doctor Who character Petronella Osgood will guide you through a variety of different puzzles that sees you face up against the Weeping Angels and other enemies from the series.
Developed and produced by the BBC, Doctor Who originally aired between 1963 and 1989 before taking a 16-year hiatus from television. It returned to our screens in 2005 and has been broadcast ever since, claiming the title of the longest-running science fiction series in the world. The revival series of Who has allowed the series to explore new mediums to be released on, including video games.
The announcement of Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins coincides with the reveal of another Who game for consoles titled The Edge of Reality.
Kevin Jorge of BBC Studios said “The Edge of Reality and The Lonely Assassins bring Doctor Who to life on console and mobile in a new and thrilling way. From saving the universe with the Thirteenth and Tenth Doctors, to bringing back the Weeping Angels, it’s going to be an exciting year and we can’t wait to reveal more!”
Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins will be available to play on Android and iOS devices in Spring 2021, with a Switch version also launching around then.
