Andrew will be showcasing SkySaga at the event, aswell as taking part in a Q&A session.

“I’m very much looking forward to Play Expo in Blackpool in May where I’ll be reminiscing about the 80’s and making classic games like the Dizzy series and many other best sellers for Amstrads, Spectrums and other 8 bit computers.
Since then I’ve been leading teams making games for virtually every gaming platform and I’m particularly proud of our latest game, SkySaga.
I look forward to presenting this game and giving people the opportunity play SkySaga in the expo area. I hope to be around most of the time to chat to people about the games industry.”


Visit the Play Expo website to get the details on how to buy tickets for the event.

Well, can someone ask him is they still have plan to release Dizzy Returns or give us a rom/source of Wonderland Dizzy?

I'm just guessing here, but I don't think there are any plans for Dizzy Returns. The Radiant Worlds team is flat-out on SkySaga as far as I know, so I can't imaigne they'd have anyone spare to work on it.

Who's going to PLAY Blackpool this weekend?
Andrew Oliver (and possibly Philip too) will be there on Saturday only.

Plus, our friends at Retro Asylum have also said that they plan to interview them at the expo.

Nice chap, met him last year.

Its always the cracked ones that let the light in
