Red Dwarf XI gets its own game

iOS and Android owners are now able, should they choose, to download a new game based on the 11th series of cult UK sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf.

It's even called Red Dwarf XI: The Game, lest there be any confusion.

The UKTV, Grant Naylor Productions and GameDigits product tries to follow the happenings of each episode within the new series, with additional content coming from writer Doug Naylor himself. Updates will roll out alongside new episodes.

It seems there's a wide assortment of genres contained within, as well as online leaderboards.

We are very excited to be working with GameDigits again, they did a fantastic job on the Storage Hunters UKTV The Game and the Red Dwarf app looks incredible,” Dave GM Steve North said. We are so happy to be able to finally give the Red Dwarf fans another way to interact with their favourite show.”

GameDigits MD Ian Lindsey added: Since being an avid fan of Red Dwarf from the first series, it is a dream opportunity to be able to make a game for series XI.

Working on this project has created one of those magical combinations, where the show's genre and the gameplay work perfectly together. It has been an absolute pleasure working with the legendary Doug Naylor, alongside UKTV and Grant Naylor Productions.”

Red Dwarf XI debuted on Dave last night. And we forgot to set a series link. Smeg.
