Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins Finds its Way to Mobile, PC

The Angels are coming


Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins


Digital entertainment studio Maze Theory and the British Broadcasting Studio have announced that Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins is now available.

Developed by Kaigan Games (Sara is MissingSimulacraSimulacra 2), The Lonely Assassins is a cryptic, narrative-driven “found-phone” game that builds upon the events seen within the iconic Season 3 Doctor Who episode “Blink.” Players will be able to experience a blend of live-action footage—the entirety of which was shot on location in London and Cardiff—and open-ended puzzle gameplay as they explore, answer calls, view videos, and read messages as they attempt to uncover the truth behind the events transpiring at Wester Drumlins.

“As a massive fan of the mobile-games medium and Blink it’s been incredible to work on Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins, exploring its unique integration of a live-action story with a videogame,” said actress Ingrid Oliver (Doctor Who‘s Petronella Osgood). Stepping back into Osgood’s lab coat was a fantastic experience and I can’t wait for players to join me as part of UNIT in taking on the Weeping Angels together!”



Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins is now available for iOS, Android, and PC via Steam. How many of you Doctor Who fans are going to be picking up this little piece of interactive lore for yourselves? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
