"You find the Whiskey too tempting to drop and so drink it!"
There in that one sentence is the inspiration behind this design.
Not only do we love the characters from the journey but we love icons and moments from within those games within which the characters lived. Hence this design. A moment worth sharing on a Tee we feel.
Fantasy World Dizzy was an arcade adventure video game released in October 1989 by Codemasters and designed by the Oliver Twins.
Fantasy World Dizzy was the first Dizzy adventure to feature many elements which later became standard for the series, such as having three lives, an improved inventory system and a balance between puzzle-solving and hazards.
This game also introduced the Yolkfolk: Daisy, Denzil, Dozy, Dylan and Grand-Dizzy.
What also made the Dizzy series so memorable were the sounds.
Games just do not have cool sounds like this anymore. It is often the aural element within the games that enables such great memories to come to mind.
Those moments are certainly true with Dizzy. Take a listen to the amazing sounds from Fantasy World in the video below.
Anyone ever run a competition of "what game was that sound from?"... That could be fun.
We would like to reiterate that the royalties that were due to Codemasters / Oliver Twins will go straight to the games industry mental health charity, Safe in our World.
Thanks to them for advancing the conversation around video games and mental health by supporting this element of the journey.
