One of the most hilarious characters starring in an adventure game, Dizzy is ready for a comeback on PC. The first title in the series was published by Codemasters back in 1987 and quickly became one of most popular adventure games in the ‘80s.

Shortly after the quick success of the original game, Dizzy, the famous egg, starred in no less than 15 games, which were dubbed as “The Ultimate Cartoon Adventure.” The latest in the series, “Crystal Kingdom Dizzy” was launched about 20 years ago.

But who’s behind the egg-dventurous Dizzy? The answer is the Oliver Twins, Philip and Andrew, who recently started a new campaign on Kickstarter for the funding of a new Dizzy game.

The new project is called “Dizzy Returns” and is aimed at iOS and PC platforms. The Oliver Twins promise the best Dizzy game ever, which will include new puzzles, new characters, new locations, and new ways of playing.

Obviously, the graphics will be updated to reflect the technological changes over the years. According to the developers, this will not be a reboot of the old Dizzy game.

“We want to stay true to the spirit and core ideals of the original series, whilst utilising the platforms, technology and resources we now have at our disposal. We believe that Dizzy Returns is a perfect fit for mobile gaming, and touch screen technology obviously means that we can experiment with and implement new mechanics and new ways of playing in Dizzy Returns,” the Oliver Twins claim.

However, Dizzy will have a home on PC as well. Given the overwhelming feedback received over the years asking for a new Dizzy game on this platform, the Oliver Twins have decided that they will develop two versions of the game at the same time.

The “Dizzy Returns” project is now up for funding on Kickstarter and will be successful if at least £350,000/$560,000/€430,000 is raised by December 21. Check it out here.
