    For a moment it looked as if that Cyberman was wearing a bath robe. That would have been pretty amazing.

    Great! The games seem to be coming through faster than expected! I really liked the first one, but I do love adventure games (and write them!). Maybe this second adventure, which sounds very 60′s era inspired, will gain a few more fans. 500,000 downloads for City of the Daleks seemed low to me. But, the lack of international availibility may be something to do with that.

    Did I read that properly?
    Is that an accurate quote?

    “…We re-introduce a Doctor Who adversary not seen since the Tom Baker era”

    Really?
    REALLY really?
    The cyberman in that picture is one of the new designed ones, isnt it?
    Seriously…

  4. mabtycoon says:

    Maybe they mean something else, but what a quote… cybermat anyone?
    Lets hope…

  5. Carn says:

    well there’s been pics of cybermats brandishing the same logo as these cybermen do on their chests. It’s confused me somewhat more. Are these the Cybus Cybermen or not? They certainly look the part but then why the chest logo change and cybermats? Anyways looking forward to playing it.

    And still no word as to if (and, sorry, “sometime in July” doesn’t qualify as a “when” and that applies to the Daleks game only anyway) these games will be available over here in North America and at what cost. I don’t suppose anyone attending the so-called “press launch” (emphasis on the word “press”) thought to ask? I am noticing a definite lack of coverage in North American-based fan boards and the like – no reference on Space.com (home website of the Canadian broadcaster), no threads on TrekBBS. Not like last time. Once bitten …

    23skidoo – as far as i am aware, today’s event wasn’t a press launch as such, taking place as it did in a school
