It's Doctor Who game season, it seems, which is absolutely fine by us. It wasn't so long ago that Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality was confirmed for a September release, and now Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins has dropped onto the Switch eShop so you can pick it up from today (12th August). Well, that TARDIS just drops in anywhere with no notice.
Originally planned for earlier this year, it continues on directly from the events of the famous episode Blink, which is certainly a stand-out in the modern Who era. As you can see below, this is a puzzle experience that blends live-action footage with the gameplay, so could certainly be worth a look for fans of the show.
Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins builds on the events of iconic Doctor Who episode Blink, transporting players into a series of sinister events occurring at Wester Drumlins – the very same abandoned London townhouse where the Weeping Angels made their first TV appearance.
The game stars ex-UNIT scientist Petronella Osgood (played by Ingrid Oliver). Players are invited to help her search through messages, emails, videos, photographs and more to uncover clues, solve puzzles and reveal the truth behind a terrifying menace.
Shot on location in London and Cardiff, Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins blends live-action footage with puzzle gameplay, with players encouraged to hunt down clues and solve a dark mystery.
