Doctor Who Will Create Episodic Audience
The game will be episodic and free according to the BBC. "The episodic game format has the benefit that it delivers content in chunks that can be completed in a few hours," said Cecil, a producr on the game. "It then allows the release of each new episode to become an 'event', in the same way that each television episode of Doctor Who is keenly anticipated on a Saturday night, and we hope that the same will happen with the episodic adventure games."
Cecil is in no doubt that the popularity of the franchise will make episodic games more mainstream, adding: "We expect these Doctor Who games to create a new audience for episodic adventure games – the genre that I believe that casual gamers will migrate to once they move on from 3-in-a-line jewel and hidden object games."
