Blood Of The Cybermen Looks Terribly Chilly

The second free downloadable Doctor Who Adventure Game will be Blood of the Cybermen, which takes place in an abandoned Arctic research station. That certainly explains the mini-skirt.

After the first episode in the series, City of the Daleks, garnered more than half a million download requests in the first 12 days of release, the BBC and developer Sumo Digital are eager to see how well episode two will do. In Blood of the Cybermen, the 11th Doctor and Amy stumble upon an abandoned research station in the Arctic that harbors a terrible secret.

That secret might be Cybermen. Wait...

Blood Of The Cybermen Looks Terribly Chilly


Yes, definitely Cybermen.

"Blood of the Cybermen is classic 'Who," says Phil Ford, Writer, Blood of the Cybermen, Doctor Who Waters of Mars and The Sarah Jane Adventures. "From the intriguing title, through the pre-credits intro to the mystery surrounding the Arctic base, this is everything you expect from a TV episode - only this time you control the action. It's an epic story, and one we could only tell in a computer game. We've ambitious sets, a thrill-a-minute narrative, and we re-introduce a Doctor Who adversary not seen since the Tom Baker era."

I'm guessing he means Cybermats, the little metallic bugs the Cybermen made out of babies.

Blood of the Cybermen will be available for free download on British PCs on June 26, after the finale of the 11th Doctor's first season. A Mac version will follow soon after, and then they'll tell the rest of the world when they can pay for it.

I've still not played the first game, and probably won't until it's made free to those of us in the colonies.
