Experimental Doctor Who Don’t Blink game goes live!

If you like to try something a bit different and think you’re brave enough to take on the Weeping Angels, we have a Halloween treat for you!

The BBC have just launched the Doctor Who Don’t Blink mini-game, which is an experiment for BBC Taster to see whether your webcam can successfully detect eye movements and be used as a game controller. We thought the Weeping Angels were a perfect fit for this! We’re also interested in finding out whether you would enjoy more, short, fun branded mini-games.

It’s a fun game, but it’s not for the faint hearted!

You’re alone in the attic of an abandoned house and the Weeping Angels are coming for you. The aim is to survive until the Doctor can send the TARDIS to save you. To help, he’s rigged up your webcam to CCTV around the house so you can watch the Angels. They can only move when you’re not looking at them so, whatever you do, don’t blink! Your webcam should detect when you blink or look away. 

We can’t wait to see what you think. Does your webcam detect your eye movements? Do the Angels approach when you blink? Can you win the game if you hold your stare?

Have a play and, if you like it, rate it and challenge your friends to try it too.
