Exploring Freaky Monsters In Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock

It's always cool to get some behind-the-scenes info when it comes to game design and development.

Check out the PlayStation Blog to learn about how the designers at Supermassive attack the daunting task of creating monsters for their new game, Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, which is slated to arrive for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

Evidently, the team "spent a huge amount of time" doing the research, and that involved looking at all previous TV shows, games, and books. The rest is as follows:

"The team then proposed two new versions of existing monsters which would become the finales for our monsters. This was a pretty nervous time; we wanted monsters that felt as scary as they do in the show and matched the scale of the locations and environments we were creating for the game. Creating a new version of a classic Doctor Who monster is a big ask they have to be carefully detailed and you must establish exactly where they sit within the canon of the show. Thankfully, the Doctor Who team loved what we were suggesting and both of our new monster versions were approved and are in the game."

Okay "Doctor Who" fans, are you ready?

Hmmm,
looks interesting, but I'll have to see some more trailers or gameplay footage first though.

Anyway, I know exactly zilch about Dr. Who other than it being a British TV series(I think).

And as for any past DW games, I know even less & have zero in any of my collections either.

So I've got 2 questions....

1. Is(or was) the show any good?

2.Exactly how many games were made so far and for which gaming system(s)????

The show was the best thing on tv when it was reintroduced a few years back an remained so until the new doctor.

Yeah lets all bash a show, that you've never even seen. I love Doctor Who, its in my top five favorite shows, the only British one on the list. Now come on if David Jaffe likes the show then it has to be great.

I007spectre I have seen doctor who i don't like it, It is rubbish and the game is going to be rubbish and just because David Jaffe likes it doesn't make it a great TV series. If David Jaffe was making this game it might be good but it's doctor who so rubbish, rubbish and rubbish

This is incredible! I had no idea this game was being developed and just one or two nights ago after watching the Pandorica episodes for like the sixth time I started thinking how a game would be awesome. This is my favorite piece of entertainment of all time! Better than anything I have ever seen, heard, read, or even played. The writers are amazingly clever. The show(relaunched version) needs to be seen a couple times over as there are so many questions that come to mind but once you watch it with those in mind you'll find that they are all answered, even if it takes 5+ years. This show could really make for a great game franchise as it involves "everything" involved within time and space leaving the developrs with an awesome amount of possibilities.

I will buy multiple copies of this just to support the idea let alone if the game actually ends up good.

@ ARKHAM
Your comments are rubbish! I have no problem with you not liking the show but you are making statements that are blatently biased. As am I being a Whovian so don't assume I don't know that but at least I am not just bashing people. And sorry but "bow ties are cool".
