The Oliver Twins' attic seems to be something of an Aladdin's cave, with two previously unreleased Dizzy games surfacing over the last couple of years, as well as a spin off title starring Pogie the Fluffle. All of these have since been completed and released online for free. In the case of Dreamworld Pogie and Wonderland Dizzy, they were also released as limited edition NES carts. Fans of the ovoid hero can rejoince as the most recently revived game is also getting a physical release, following its unveiling at the National videogame museum earlier this year.
With a Kickstarter campaign already funded in less than 24 hours, Mystery World Dizzy, another NES exclusive, will be finally seeing the light of day. The game is a classic puzzle platformer with super colourful graphics, as you'd expect from The Oliver Twins, and is an enhanced version of the classic Fantasy Wrold Dizzy title from the 8-bit home computers. Backing the campaign will get you a copy of the game, along with a number of additional goodies at higher tiers, including mugs, mouse mats and a canvas.
The campaign is being run by Chris Wilkins, creator of an official biography of the twins amongst many other retro gaming themed books. Backers will also be supporting charity, as The Oliver Twins have stated that their share of proceeds will be going to gaming charity Special Effect.
