Happy late new year, folks.
Here is a round-up of what's happened so far and what's to come.

(Apologies in advance if I've missed anything out.)


Mensa Dizzy:

Well our deepest apologies to Steve Rennie for taking this long to make a news post about his latest DizzyAGE game which was released back in Xmas Eve.
The game is called Mensa Dizzy.


Daisy has become a member of MENSA.
Not to be outdone, Dizzy has decided to go to the land of Mensa in order to pass the tests and also become a member.

Radiant Worlds acquired by Rebellion:

When Smilegate announced that they were stopping the development of SkySaga, many of us were left wondering about what will become of The Oliver Twins' company Radiant Worlds.
On the 8th January, it was announced that Radiant Worlds has been aquired by UK developer and publisher Rebellion.


This means that Radiant Worlds will become Rebellion Warwick with the Olivers leading the Rebellion Warwick Studio.

Dizzy and the Raven's Hex:

The first fan game of 2018 has been released by Eleanor Burns.


The new factory town of Morgenholt, located deep within ancient fay woodlands, has recently been troubled by a mysterious and baleful haunting.
Squire Whateley, leader of the town and owner of its factory, has sent for the most daring and resourceful hero in the kingdom to investigate and put an end to this menace.
Which is where a certain familiar ovoid steps into the scene.

Has boxing gloves, will travel…
