Doctor Who Game Maker was released on the BBC website in 2015. It was produced in collaboration between BBC Cymru Wales, BBC Digital, Aardman Animations, Aerian and BBC Connected Studio. Aardman's digital team came up with the Digital Makers Kit itself. As of 2018[update], the game is no longer available to play.
It featured the first appearance of the Master in a video game since Destiny of the Doctors in 1999. Similarly, the Weeping Angels made their second appearance in a video game after The Mazes of Time expansion level Angels in the Shadows. The Sontarans, Cybermen, Cybermats, and Daleks all reappeared from various games, including the immediately previous The Doctor and the Dalek in 2014.
Like Legacy, the Game Maker was updated every series. Colony Sarff, from the Magician's Apprentice and the Witch's Familiar, was added 5 days after its release date, forming the first update from series 9. The Mire were also added as an enemy after the airing of the Girl Who Died.
