Philip and Andrew Oliver, the original creators behind Dizzy
, one of the most successful European computer game brands of the late 1980s, have announced a Kickstarter campaign
for Dizzy Returns
, giving fans old and new the chance to be a part of Dizzy history, not only by giving their financial support by pledging, but also by being involved with design decisions throughout development via backer-only design forums. Other rewards on offer include exclusive digital content available only to Kickstarter backers and opportunities to be immortalised in the new game, with more rewards to be announced during the 30 day campaign.
The first Dizzy, published in 1987 was an instant hit with gamers of all ages, with its perfect blend of platforming, puzzle solving and exploration. It spawned a hit series of over 15 games over multiple platforms, including the Amstrad, Spectrum and Amiga.
Successful funding of the £350,000 campaign will allow development to begin on iOS and PC versions of Dizzy Returns, with additional platforms dependent on the final amount raised.
