Jake Parker’s SkyHeart

Jake Parker’s SkyHeart

All of the original concept art and sketches for Dizzywood was produced by the extremely talented Jake Parker. That included all of the initial character sketches for Presto, Chanjo, Olivia Kickflip, and more. He’s also responsible for the “look and feel” of the world, so when you were spending all those hours exploring through Presto’s Grove, Tanglevine Jungle and the Skylands, you were enjoying Jake’s work. That’s why we’re very excited about Jake’s latest project, a Kickstarter for his new book, SkyHeart. And hey, the story features a Sky Whale. That’s a whale that flies in the air. What more reason do you need? Please take a look and consider supporting Jake’s newest work!   P.S. Did you know there’s an airplane prototype that’s also called the Sky Whale? It’s a huge 3-floor aircraft designed to hold 775 passengers. That’s enormous–but not as cool as an actual flying whale!...

The Dizzywood Map

Did you know that there was an unreleased map of Dizzywood that showed far more about the known worlds than was ever revealed in the game? The official in-game map was really quite small by comparison, encompassing only a handful of areas that were accessible, like Presto’s Grove, Presto’s Edge, Tanglevine Jungle and Canal City. The original map, sketched by the incredibly talented Jake Parker and inked by the considerably less talented Scott Arpajian, shows many amazing places in Dizzywood that never quite made it into the game. This map was never published, and as far as we know, this is the very first time anyone outside of the Dizzywood creators has seen it! In fact, the only place the map ever existed before was on a conference room table in the offices of Rocket Paper Scissors, the creators of Dizzywood. Take a close look. What can you imagine happening in some of these lesser-known lands of...
A History of Dizzywood

A History of Dizzywood

Do you know the history of Dizzywood? Long before human Dizzywood explorers first arrived from Earth, the world had its own native inhabitants, called Ancients, Sprites and Bogies. Read on to learn more about this amazing world’s history. A Brief History of Dizzywood Before humans and animals, the world’s main inhabitants were huge elemental titans called Ancients, small faerie-like creatures called Sprites, their more wild counterparts Bogies, nasty monsters of all shapes and sizes, and the many flying and skittering critters who make up the world’s indigenous animal kingdom. Animals from our world were the first to discover Dizzywood many thousands of years ago. Through the magic of Dizzywood, they gained a keen intelligence and developed speech as well as the ability to walk upright. These animals soon began forming communities, which mirrored the ones they had seen on earth. Ancient Egyptian cities made up of Nile alligator men sprang up in desert regions. Jaguars, snakes, and armadillos created vast Aztec and Mayan-like Empires in the area that would eventually become known as Tanglevine Jungle. Magic in the world manifests itself naturally in a variety of ways, including pools of elixir and underground crystals. The animals have developed technology and machinery using the magical elixir, such as cars, airships, and all manner of modern devices. A group of mad scientists has even invented teleporters, robots, jetpacks, and other sci-fi devices. Fairly recently, human explorers discovered the world. One of the explorers, a miscreant named Simon Withering, decided that he wanted to sap this newfound world of all its wondrous magical resources. Attempting to rename the world Witherland, he proclaimed...
Dizzywood Critters

Dizzywood Critters

Do you remember critters in Dizzywood? Critters were a lot like pets in the game and would follow your character wherever you travelled throughout the world. What many people don’t know is that there were several different kinds of critters, each with their own story. Crystal Critters The first critters discovered in Dizzywood were Crystal Critters. These lovable little guys were discovered deep in the Elder Vein mines. Years ago, many woodland creatures wandered into the underground mines while the evil Emperor Withering was ransacking the sacred temple. His mining operation threw strange corrupted magicks into the air. The crystalized critters are the sad result. The good news is that the crystal critters could be brought back to life with the help of Kan the Geomancer. Here’s a look at all the crystal critters that could be found and re-animated. Piglet Bunnycorn Lizard Fish Batty Fox Bull Beastie Double Snake Flutterbird Twinklepig Other Critters Additional critters were found later by intrepid Dizzywood explorers. Some of the critters found later in the game included the ultra-rare TurtleBug. Here are some of the other critters that were discovered. Turtlebug Crested Fluppy Paintbrush...
Easter Greetings from Dizzywood

Easter Greetings from Dizzywood

Easter is upon us and greetings from Dizzywood! Easter was always a fun holiday on Dizzywood, and it was highlighted by the Bjorn Brothers Easter Egg Hunt. Each of the three Bjorn Bears (Edward, Einar and Elof) would hide five eggs somewhere in Dizzywood, and it was up to Dizzywood explorers everywhere to try and find them. Some of the eggs were very easy to spot, but others required a lot more searching. P.S. Does anyone out there remember the name of Edward, Einar and Elof’s mother? There’s a bit of Dizzywood trivia for you!...
