Dizzy's 30th Anniversary celebration - International Dizzy day announced, Saturday 8th April!
Ever since I had an Amstrad CPC 464 and then on to an Amiga, I have always been a massive Dizzy fan, playing pretty much every Dizzy game ever released since 1987 by the glorious Oliver Twins. It was also the reason Indie Retro News has tried to keep you informed to the latest developments coming out from our good friends the YolkFolk and many other Dizzy related sources. This is especially true for this news because as of today as a fantastic heads up in celebration of Dizzy's 30th anniversary, the Oliver Twins have announced International Dizzy day, which is being held at the National Videogame Arcade, Nottingham Saturday 8th April!
After all these years and selling millions with a multitude of platform releases, the Oliver Twins have teamed up with the National Videogame Arcade to hatch plans for a special new exhibition and series of events to celebrate the 30th anniversary. So if you come along to this incredible event, you'll not only be able to relive a huge part of gaming nostalgia, but you'll be able to explore how the Dizzy games were created by the Oliver Twins, including the design and puzzles, hear them talk about their inspiration and the tools they created to code for different systems and design graphics and animation, as well as much more including even playing on original hardware!
Oh and if you can calm yourself down just that little bit, you may learn of a brand new Dizzy surprise! So head on over to the main site and check it out, this is an event you'll not want to miss.
