Time For Televirtual

Virtual character specialist Televirtual has unveiled details of its first co-production - TimeGate - which it has developed with Fremantle Thames Media, writes Barbara Marshall.

Devised by Televirtual founder Tim Child - creator of the Knightmare fantasy adventure game show for CITV - TimeGate is both a TV adventure game show and a multi-player online gaming system.

The show is set in a fantasy world called Underland and features virtual characters such as wizards, warlocks and elves, all of which are 'driven' by a cast of real actors in real time. The technology took Televirtual six years to develop and has benefited from the EU-funded Charismatic project which allows the exploration of history via complex hi-fidelity simulation-based experiences.
