Doctor Who Video Game!

We’re all gamers here at Traveling the Vortex, and have often spoke of a LEGO Doctor Who game. Well it may not be LEGO but BBC Worldwide has teamed up with Supermassive Games to release a console based game called “Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock” exclusively for the Playstation 3, PC and Sony’s new handheld device, Vita.

It looks like it won’t be disk based, bu a downloadable title.  The game will also feature the 11th Doctor (Matt Smith) and River Song (Alex Kingston). And according to the press release “Gamers must learn to master the complexities of time travel with exceptional time based game play, changes made in one time will impact another creating multiple possibilities and challenging players to solve puzzles across the centuries.”

Supermassive Games is no newbie to the Console either…they have created user packs for Little Big Planet 2, as well as Start the Party, and Start the Party 2. The game is set to be released early 2012. Below is the first teaser trailer for the game.

Doctor Who on Xbox LIVE

Here’s a way to get the word out that the new series of Doctor Who is ready to launch soon. Advertise to the millions of gamer geeks on Xbox LIVE.

That is exactly what Microsoft and BBC America are doing.  They are crossing genres to reach a whole other branch of customers.

I, for one, am excited.  Being a fan of DW already, I was aware of the release date.  But, now, I can have my very own TARDIS gamer picture.  I have been waiting for three years, since I fist signed on to the service to have a DW themed picture on my gamertag.  And I can now say that I will probably never change it again.
