[DW] Adventure Games

Postby Sandiwich11 on Wed Apr 28, 2010 2:29 pm

I've put this in spoilers because it is being promoted as 4 extra episodes at the end of the season so it may contain spoilers between now and then.

New trailer from a visit to Sheffield to promote the game

I played the TW ARG a couple of years ago which was pretty good but this looks like it's going to easily surpass it. I'm really pleased that they have gone to this much trouble to treat us all as the series goes on hiatus :thumbsup:

One week to go until the first game is released :O :thumbsup:

The BBC have launched a new section for the games which can be found here - http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/dw/theadventuregames The only specs they have up atm are:

Each game will be around 300MB to download. That will take around 10-20 minutes to download depending upon the speed of your internet connection. You'll need about 2GB of space to install the games which will run on Windows PC and Intel Macs.


Does this mean that people outside the UK will be able to play too? :D

Just started playing, it's pretty simple so far, a bit laggy with graphics on high even thou my machine is way over the specs for the game, lol. Here's some screen shots:

Well it's only free inside the UK because of the Licence Fee, so I kinda get why people outside have to pay :(

The BBC have said that they released the game early as a way of 'beta testing' it before it's proper release tonight's episode. There are a few little bugs in it so I'm glad to hear that they have tweaked it slightly. I also expect that the early release will have reduced some of the strain on the BBC server later tonight as most of the hardcore online fans will have already played it :lol:
