Boy oh boy, those good people at the BBC certainly know how to treat Doctor Who fans to a Christmas day extravaganza (if you live in the UK that is). Not only do we get the Doctor back in live action form in the Christmas Day special A Christmas Carol but the official Doctor Who website will also be releasing their fourth and final adventure game of the year, Shadows Of Vashta Nerada.
Thatâ€™s right, the shadowy (forgive the pun) meanies are back to cause the Doctor more trouble and this time, theyâ€™re looking even creepier. Events follow on directly from the last game, TARDIS, and see the Doctor and Amy investigating a seabed colony called Poseidon where they suddenly find themselves in a struggle for survival against the Vashta Nerada.
The graphics for the game seem to be slightly crisper and Shadows Of Vashta Nerada looks like it will be the creepiest Doctor Who game yet!
As always, this free downloadable game will be available to Licence Fee payers in the UK only but as we understand, there are plans to make the games available at a cost to overseas gamers in the future.
In the meantime, hereâ€™s looking forward to Christmas day in the UK, with lots of Doctor Who related goodies coming our way!
Doctor Who: The Adventure Games–Shadows Of Vashta Nerada will be available to download for free to Mac or PC on 25th December 2010.
