Bower and his son James have together made a great Dalek arcade game for the PC.
I was approached to provide the 3D Dalek models in order to create the sprites
for the game but due to the complexities of exporting my Daleks from MAX it became
easier for me to just do the renders myself. Ultimately this became a great advantage
as it spurred me on to make the adaptations to my existing Dalek meshes in order
to prove a more extensive set of models.
From the initial conversations
we'd had about a handful of Dalek types, a version of the game was soon produced
which contained a near complete set of Daleks, representing every Doctor Who
story from 1963 to 2005. I was happy to provide advice on the order of the episodes,
the styles of Dalek for each episode, the Dalek heirarchy and various other geeky
details in order to maintain the "fan factor". Andy and James Bower
have created an excellent game in its own right but appeal to the Doctor Who and
Dalek fans is what makes it a real triumph. I'm very proud to have had input into
this game and its been very rewarding to see my models put to some use.
