Doctor Who @ Gamecitynights
Gamers in Nottingham were given aÂ treatÂ when Executives behind Doctor Who: The Adventure Games popped in for a Q&A at the annual Gamecitynights event.
A panel consisting of BBC Interactive executive producer Anwen Aspden, writer James Moran (The Fires of Pompeii) Â and designerÂ Charles Cecil (Broken Sword, Beneath a Steel Sky) chaired questions about how the games came about, writing and Cybermen.
The panel were reticent to share anything about the upcomming third episode, which is set to feature a brand newÂ monster excluisve to theÂ game.
GameCityNights have published a handy ‘ten things we learnt’ guide to the evening:
- The plural of TARDIS is TARDISs
- The in-game Cybermen came very close to having eyeballs
- The Master = nasty Timelord, nice cocktail
- Those Rhino guys are the Judoon
- The Adventure Games have been downloaded over 1,000,000 times!
- Sumo Gamesâ€™ pitch demo companion was Lily Allen
- Those extra doors in the TARDIS console room are there for a reason
- Absolutely nothing about Episode 3
You may be wondering aboutÂ ‘The Master’ Cocktail, well after the panel had served up a health doss of chat, Doctor Who themed cocktails were served- here’s a handy list of all of them to get youÂ bladderedÂ Time Lord style:
Midori melon liquer, lemon juice and sugar shaken over ice.
Light rum, peach schnapps, blue curaÃ§ao and lemon juice topped with lemonade.
Light rum, vodka, lemon juice, triple sec, Plymouth gin and suger topped with coke.
Tequila, orange juice and a dash of grenadine.
The event held at Antenna, Nottingham also featuredÂ new gamesÂ by developers GL Peas , Retro Remakes and Nerf Games and a Doctor Who themed game of Consequence; where teams had to write one sentence of a Who story, cover it and then pass it on to a team mate to write the next one.
The event was chaired by Simon Byron of podcast series One Life Left.
