Such has been the success of the PC and Mac Doctor Who Adventure Game series that the BBC has confirmed that the games will return for a second series in 2011.
To date the first three Adventure Games have been downloaded over 1.6m times, with a fourth release due out later this year.
The new games will once again be produced by Steven Moffat, Piers Wenger, Beth Willis, along with Anwen Aspden and be developed by Sumo Digital. Screen stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillen will also return in digital form.
Given the success of the first series, we’d be daft not to recomission,” BBC’s head of multiplatform in vision Simon Nelson stated.
But it’s not just about the numbers; the feedback we’ve had has been overwhelmingly positive. Our audience has been introduced to a new form of drama – and, for many, these have been the first computer games they have downloaded. We’ve set new standards in audience participation – and we think we’ve really helped push the concept of families actively playing together. I can’t wait to see what the team does next.”
