As a gamer in my early 30's I have fond memories of gaming in the 80's. But there is one series which came out on the micro computers that holds a special place in my heart, and that series is 'Dizzy' the lovable puzzle solving egg.
Now fans of Dizzy can get a chance to meet the Oliver Twins on 26th July 2014 at the The Centre for Computing History in Cambridge.
According to the Computing History website:
The legendary Oliver Twins, Philip and Andrew, will be talking about the past, present and future of computer, video and now mobile games. They will share experiences from their early days of working with Codemasters, Dizzy Egg and Blitz Games all the way through to their current endeavours with their newly formed company Radiant Worlds. Q&A session will follow this presentation..
Starting on 8 bit computers in the 80’s with games like Dizzy all the way through to recent games such as Puss in Boots, Epic Mickey 2, they will also talk about their exciting new game!
I've already ordered my ticket for £7 and am very excited to meet my 80's heroes, I have my original Amstrad CPC 464 Fantasy World Dizzy cassette and Master System Fantastic Dizzy to get signed!
