The results are in!
Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote in our first design survey earlier this week. Your answers are already helping to shape Dizzy Returns!
There was a good spread of votes across all the choices, and it's great to see that you're looking forward to exploring new and interesting places with Dizzy. The least popular choice, though only by a small amount, was the Lava Caves - was this because of its focus on the trolls or the mention of being stealthy? If this location didn't appeal to you then please let us know why via the comments below, we'd love to hear your views.
As a direct result of your votes the most popular locations, Theodore’s Library and the Tomb of Goldheart, will be included as playable areas in Dizzy Returns. Many of you have commented that from the location choices it seems that we were taking the new game in a darker and more intense direction. Have no fear, all of the locations in the game will have the light-hearted touch that defines the Dizzy world!
It's no surprise that Fantasy World Dizzy came out on top (it's actually one of our favourites too!), especially as it introduced the rest of the Yolkfolk characters, making Dizzy part of a family whilst giving the game a strong goal to work towards. It's also the game that really refined the Dizzy formula, with sharper puzzles and a more balanced difficulty level. We had planned on bringing back the Yolkfolk to Dizzy Returns, and it's great to see that you want them back too.
Treasure Island Dizzy took second place, which is interesting because it shows that many of you weren't put off by the increased difficulty level caused by only having one life. We’ll be discussing various difficulty levels and settings in more detail in future design surveys.
Thanks again to everyone who took part - those of you who have backed at 'Supporter of Dizzy’ level or higher can expect more questions coming your way next week!
