    I honestly have no idea what this game looks like but if you are able to down load it you can do so here. If it's worth anything perhaps we can get someone to host it? Not sure why it's restricted for UK only downloads :confused:

    Saw a report on this, but as I'm in Spain... It's a BBC freebie, but who knows?

    I'd love to see a shooter, without the doctor (Tom Baker, all others are imitators) and with plenty of daleks and cybermen, ah well.

    If anyone knows a good hosting website that I could throw it up on let me know and I'll download it for you, I'm on a linux only machine and my larger lappy appears to have uninstalled windows somehow so I can't test it right now (can give it a try with Wine).

    Outside the UK

    If you live outside the UK, the first Adventure Game will be available to purchase in early July. We will have more information shortly on release dates and where you can buy them, so watch this space!

    If you are in the UK and are seeing this message, you may need to contact your ISP. Please see the Help section below.


    I thought this was free. I'm away to watch England vs USA.

    East Coast Handle, it'll be restricted to UK only free downloads as it's probably been made using TV licence fee payer's money (you're charged a fee of ~£50 a year to have your TV hooked up to recieve anything, the BBC gets all of its cash from there, all other broadcasters must find some other source of funding). Since you guys don't pay this fee they're covering at least the download costs. It's freely available in the UK because it's assumed any household with the internet will have a TV licence.
     
    Mr McC and EastCoasthandle say thanks.

    I didn't now that. Well then, that's understandable.

    It's one of those things that makes it kind of good to be british (that there's one media outlet that isn't so concerned about ratings as if they take a dip it's not going to damage its reputation, it just has to change itself a bit and try again), just a cultural difference that you wouldn't really be aware of if you hadn't lived here for a while! Doesn't appear to have installed itself under WINE on here so I can't say anything about it...
