So, if you aren't aware: Destiny of the Doctors was a 1997 Doctor Who video game which is primarily remembered for its cutscenes, which starred Anthony Ainley in his final role as the Master. One facet of the game which fascinates me greatly is its extensive use of the TARDIS corridors, which have always been interesting to me in their often unused potential. However, the game is effectively abandonware and unsupported on most modern PCs, which means that actually playing the game is an extremely difficult task and one I haven't yet been able to achieve. But I've come across several screenshots, and I'm sure there's some footage on YouTube somewhere, possibly even a full playthrough.

I wonder if there's a way to rip the assets, it'd be interesting to see the textures they used for the TARDIS.

Lol I was literally playing this game tonight...

I find running the main DOD.exe direct from disc works just fine on Windows 10. You don't get the pre-video with Anthony Ainley but it jumps straight into the game.

I would love to recreate this game somehow in a modern engine like Unity / Unreal4.
My CG modelling and programming skills are very limited though  :'(

It'd be brilliant if someone made a modern equivalent game featuring war and 9-13 and featuring one of the modern masters

Talk about tempting me to find something to fill my time, I'm busy enough!

I don't know if Google SketchUp is any good for this kinda video game modelling but if it is I'd totally be up for it!
No, not the mind probe!
