The village of Hollyoaks has been recreated in virtual form, and players can explore inside well known landmarks such as The Dog in the Pond pub, The McQueens’ house, The Roscoes’ garage, The Savages’ Boat and The Dee Valley University Hospital.
The game – built by Brighton games development studio Big Bit for Lime Pictures and Channel 4 – will also allow players to unlock ‘selfies’, allowing them to make and share photos of themselves with their favourite characters.
