Doctor Who Time Vortex VR
The BBC has announced the release of a new Doctor who VR game. Which will see you pilot the Tardis through the Time Vortex from the show’s opening title sequence.
The game needs players to avoid obstacles both from the future and the past. But do not want to make it much easier, by just looking at where you want the Tardis to go. You’ll need to physically move around to travel back in time and avoid being hit.
The Doctor who VR game is a reboot of the Time Vortex 360 game that was released earlier this year. But now makes its way to all manner of VR headsets. Because the game is web-based. It can be viewed and played on Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive headsets via a web browser, or Android and iOS devices running the latest version of Chrome, Safari or Firefox.
BBC Digital Drama Creative Director Jo Pearce said: “This game allows you to step inside one of the most iconic title sequences in TV history. As you pilot the Tardis through modern, the 60s and 80s versions of the vortex.”
“After releasing the 360 version of the game. We had lots of comments from players suggesting it’d make a great VR experience. For this reboot, we wanted to offer a VR gaming experience that’s as accessible as possible and test the limits of what’s possible to develop using WebVR.”
