2.5.1 is now live on iOS and Android. It will go live shortly on Amazon. Facebook unfortunately has been experiencing technical difficulties on their side with ther Pars technology (which handles cloud saving). This is entirely beyond our control and we are urging them to fix again (it has caused 3 periods of outage in the last week). Our apologies for the inconvenience!
2.5.1 addresses load time, performance (especially on older devices) and memory leaks. It also adds the Fourth Doctor to the background image on the start screen!
Tomorrow night, Wednesday the 26th, we will be releasing the Prologue to Chapter 4 which adds the Fourth Doctor and the Twelfth Doctor to the core storyline of the game. So please be sure to update!
Thursday, the 27th, in addition to being Thanksgiving in the States, is the one year anniversary of the game! Join us for a very special live Twitch (www.twitch.tv/theadiposetv) with special guests Peter Hickman (BBC Worldwide producer), Jack Yee (Producer for DWL at Seed). Several of our community including Sharee (our Facebook community mod), Penultimate (our Tumblr mod), and "SmallBlueMonkey" will also be skyping in to ask questions and chat! 12 pm pacific, 8 pm UK.

Next week is the one year anniversary of the launch of Doctor Who: Legacy! If you haven't done so, head on over to the 1st Birthday Letter from the Doctor Who: Legacy team to read all about our plans for the coming few months including the 2nd annual Advent Calendar promotion which kicks off January 1st as well as updates on "Bigger on the Inside" and our inclusion of extended universe Doctor Who content from Titan Comics, Big Finish, and the Engines of War novel by George Mann.
Two patches are imminent for the game.
The first is coming slightly later than initially planned, on the night of Monday the 24th (pacific time). This patch will include the first half of the new prologue story which adds the 12th Doctor and the 4th Doctor into the core storyline of the game. We will also be adding a new gem skin specifically for those who are color blind, by popular request (let us know what you think of the solution please if this affects you).
The second patch is coming on the night of Thursday the 27th (pacific time) which is both the anniversary of the game and Thanksgiving day in the USA. This patch will include the second half of the new prologue. It will also include a new Expert mode level entitled "A Mad Man with a Box". In it, you will content with the Zygons as they impersonate each and every incarnation of the Doctor! Your reward will be the Expert version of the TARDIS! This is only for the most experienced players and will require obtaining the Expert First Doctor and Expert Brigadier before attempting.
We have more planned to celebrate our one year anniversary, so stay tuned and as always, thank you for your support of Doctor Who: Legacy!

A patch went live tonight with some exciting new content including:
- "Ms. Delphox" in the Fan Area exclusively. This level will reward you with the Fan Teller (Fan Teller is blue. His ability is called "Survival Instinct" and it increases the health of your team -- at max, rank 5, it increases your health by 40% for one turn (great for absorbing bit hits in expert mode levels for example).
- New "UNIT" challenge level in the challenge area (1 time crystal reward)
- 150% bonus experience all week in the Fan Area.
- Bonus time crystal promotion: 15 for the price of 13 (bag of time crystals).

Happy Sunday night, the patch is now live! And with it, the much anticipated episodes based on Dark Water and Death in Heaven! Dark Water (easy/medium/hard) and two levels based on Death in Heaven (easy/medium/hard) are all in the specials tab. Rewards are Kate Stewart as a new ally, a new costume for Danny Pink and a new costume for the Brigadier! Also, a new and challenging expert level, "Confusion", can now be found in the Expert mode tab. Please note that this is currently one of the hardest levels in the game, requiring 4 specific expert mode characters just to be allowed to play it. This is only for the most experienced of players with an appropriate team. You've been warned :)
You'll also find a new Cyberman gem skin in the Options menu.

Such an exciting weekend! Long Island Doctor Who is on and if you're there, you'll have loads of opportunities for DW: Legacy codes and try to get one of those rare tiny rebel games ribbons -- post a pick if you get one! Only about 500 are up for grabs.
And I know we are waiting (im)patiently for Death in Heaven over here in Tiny Rebel land.
So -- Osgood Osgood....Osgood has been unavoidably delayed. We'll give you an update on her when we have one, rest assured. But meanwhile, we can't hold up the content any longer. Sooooo. This weekend we will release all of the following:
- Dark Water (Easy/Medium/Hard) - reward will be Kate Stewart! She will be green, just like her father. And her ability is called "Her Father's Daughter" and will overpower green (her father changes color to green).
- Death in Heaven, part 1 (Easy/Medium/Hard) - reward will be a costume. No spoilers here, sorry. But we think you will be VERY happy.
- Death in Heaven, part 2 (Easy/Medium/Hard) - reward will also be a costume. Once again, can't spoil. But again, you guys will be VERY happy indeed.
- New expert mode level, "Confusion" with Expert War Doctor as the reward and his ability at rank 5 will overpower 2 colors! (new Doctor ability
All of this goodness will be coming Sunday night.
Again, apologies on Osgood. If we could release we would, but we cannot alas. But hopefully that will change soon.
Another piece of good news --- the lovely Keeley Hawes has signed on and that means a new level is coming based on Time Heist featuring Ms. Delphox. Expect that treat in the FAN AREA next weekend with Fan Teller.
And finally, if you didnt see the note earlier and missed Twitch. Here's the hour long recap full of 'what's coming soon' goodness. If you only have a few mins, start half way through where we get to art reveals for Titan, Bigger on the Inside, etc.

We also have 5 new challenge levels going live which are tuned to a variety of levels and require various team members to complete. Also, when the patch goes live tonight, we will release a promo code to unlock Rory's new costume! And we'll also launch our second costume fund costume which I'll start another thread about!BAD news is the Dark Water level has been unavoidably held up. We still expect it to go live early this week but an issue beyond our control has meant not including tonight. Nothing to worry about, it will go live -- just a short delay The cybermen skinned gem theme will also go live when Dark Water goes live.The gem theme contest has ended and we expect to pick a winner soon!
We've also added the TARDIS to the store for purchase and the Van Gogh historical costume too.
