The fourth Adventure game was revealed by the BBC today as part of their Doctor Who ADVENTure calendar. Titled “Shadows of the Vashta Nerada”, the game will be released around Christmas this year.
From the Beeb’s site:
Kicking off immediately after the cliff-hanger ending of episode three, the latest Adventure Game picks up the story of the Doctor and Amy who’ve materialised just south of London (and about a 1000 miles to the left), inside a sea-bed colony called Poseidon. Shadows of the Vashta Nerada features a cracking plot which surrounds a real-world conspiracy and, of course, it takes place at Christmas.
‘We’ve gone all-out for the season finale,’ says Steven Moffat, executive producer and lead writer, Doctor Who. ‘Shadows of the Vashta Nerada takes place entirely underwater – something which would be impossible for the TV series, as water is so expensive. It’s thrilling, terrifying, educational and fun. Just steer clear of those shadows…’
The article also confirms that there will be more adventure games for 2011. This is good news for me. I’ve played all three of the games released so far and they’re definitely a fun diversion with high production values (especially for a freebie)!
