Well as I'm sure many of you are aware by now, a Kickstarter has launched for a brand new machine called the ZX Spectrum Next. The campaign is doing extremely well as the pledges is currently over double their original target of £250k.
What does this have to do with Dizzy? Well over a week ago, The Oliver Twins made a surprise announcement on YouTube saying that a new Dizzy game is being planned specially for the ZX Spectrum Next - the first official adventure in 25 years! But only if the Spectrum Next's Kickstarter reaches the £500k stretch goal - which amazingly was reached the following day of the video's release.
With the stretch goal reached without any difficulty, a second video of The Oliver Twins was released late last night where they revealed the title "Wonderful Dizzy".
This work in progress will be designed by the Olivers themselves and developed by the team behind the 2017 remake of Crystal Kingdom on the Spectrum. The story for the game will be based on "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz".
Lastly, if you are interested in pledging to the ZX Spectrum Next Kickstarter, feel free to do so now as the campaign's deadline is on Tuesday 23 May - Midnight BST. - Visit Kickstarter for ZX Spectrum Next
We will certainly be keeping a watchful eye on the project's progress!
