I made a video

Hello All,

It looks like I'm never going to finish another game on DizzyAGE so I made a video of all the ideas I've been playing around with the past few years.

Here's the link, if you're interested: https://youtu.be/I8Hvyj7DPtE

I liked the shades of 'Pleasantville' in the demo Simon, but will miss your quirky games.

I'm sorry to read this, Simon.

It is an absolute shame we won't see any more from you, as those demos show you have a lot of talent with the engine, talent I wish I had myself.

I hope the feedback I provided from when I tested the racing game a couple of years ago hasn't discouraged you at all, I never intended to put anybody off at all.

Still, you should consider releasing some of those advanced looking demos for future references, you never know that it may spark some interest for someone else down the line.
There's nothing more sad than seeing great talent go to waste.

Cheers guys. Much appreciated. :)

Goodness me no. I had a real good go at doing the racing game. Was really pleased I worked out how to do AI karts to race against, but I hit a big, maybe insoluble problem coding their collisions with the scenery - you can see a bit of it in the video I think.

I liked the "picking colours" game idea very much. Perhaps you'd consider finishing it?
It's a real pity that the DizzyAGE community is dying out...The Russians too, and I really liked their remake of "Dizzy X" (I have never played the original, by the way - I have never had a Spectrum) and was hoping for a remake of "Dizzy Y" too... And another Russian Dizzy game was promised for last year, and nope, no news at all... :(

Hi Nowhere Girl, I sort of still around popping in and out but sadly it unlikely I would be looking to make another game due to not really having the time anymore but you never know, there would be a lot to relearn now too given been a few years since the last release.
