Looks like you're off to a good start, and reading the info you provided it seems you're a real card-carrying "Dr. Who Fan"  ;)  Screen-shots look great from what I can see of them, and plot seems interesting.

Of course you know that Dr. Who is a real classic with a large following for a few decades, so "don't mess it up", or else we'll send "Esper" over to choke you and hang you from the Tardis with a long colorful scarf  :=

   Good luck with your project. It's nice to see a new comer abiding by the rules here and putting some thought and effort into such a bold project.

Mongol General: "That is good."

Interesting. I never watched Dr Who as a kid, but I like the new one quite a bit.

*whine* Indy paintover *end whine*

But otherwise, looks great. Hope you can live up to other peoples expectations. Its suprising that no-one has attempted a Doctor game before... or maybe they have and it never materialised.

Keep it up buddy.

Or maybe the holders of the copyright went back in time and stopped it from happening in the "first place"  ;D
Looks good, having never watched Dr.Who I can't add much, but good luck to you.

Now why can't I find the website to that 3D Dr. Who adventure game? Maybe someone can help me out...

It's about time someone decided to make a Doctor Who adventure game :) I always thought this was perfect for the genre, same thing goes for stargate, which im glad someone made a good game from that.

Next is MacGuyver! We'll rip clips from the show for voice! :P

Best of luck, Duckbutcher, you seem to be doing a great job so far. :)

I have a Dalek walkcycle in one of my games. Devilshly hard thing to do! I agonized over it for nights. "But is it rolling left to right Dalek-y enough?" Almost as hard as putting R2-D2 in a game, I tell you!

Seriously, I plan to follow this game's development. I loves the old Doctor Who. I hope the scarf will be a vital part of the game.

Wouldn't it be cool if the scarf had its own interaction verb in the GUI, eg. scarf sth.!

Well, considering the game stars the fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith, I'd assume K9 would be in it. The perso working on the game hasn't posted in a while though, hopefully we'll hear some news on it soon.

And if you are reading this, don't forget to give the Doctor some jelly babies in his inventory. And make "Would you like a jelly baby?" a dialog option many, MANY times.

I always thought it'd be great to finally have a Pertwee era Cyberman story :)

Unfortunately, It couldn't have Sarah Jane in it.. But perhaps a Liz Shaw story!
