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!...
Happy New Year 2014

Happy New Year 2014

Happy New Year, Dizzywood fans! It’s wonderful to know that even though the original Dizzywood game has been shut down for several years, so many people keep returning to this web site each day to check in and see if there’s any news about the game. It’s amazing to think that the first planning for Dizzywood began just over eight years ago! Over the years there have been many rumors about the return of Dizzywood, and while the virtual world we all knew and loved is gone for good, some of us are still kicking around ideas behind the scenes to see if Dizzywood might return in some way, shape or form (hint: think iPad!) There’s no real news yet: just some ideas. Perhaps 2014 will be the year! In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled on this blog for a great trip down memory lane as we celebrate the Dizzywood of the past while we dream of the possibilities for the...

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone. St. Patrick’s Day was always a very festive holiday in Dizzywood. The reclusive leprechaun would visit Dizzywood, carrying a pot o’ gold that would give out gold to anyone who could find it. The mischievous leprechaun was also known to use the special rainbow emote power to celebrate the holiday in style. What are your favorite memories of St. Patrick’s Day in...

Ghosts of Christmas Past

One of the best times of year on Dizzywood was the holiday season, when the Winter Festival would arrive. Snow would begin to fall in the normally green landscape of Dizzywood, and Dizzies would be quick to get into the spirit of the season. The height of the party was held at Farthing’s Pond, where the water froze over and ice skating became the most popular activity. Here are a few screenshots of Winter Festivals from the past. What are your favorite memories of the Dizzywood Winter...

Something Old and Something New

We were going through some old screenshots of the early Dizzywood days and came across these from the famous Maze, which was a special area located inside Tanglevine Jungle. The maze itself changed every day and awarded points every time you were able to navigate safely to the finish line. Along the way, you might encounter obstacles that would send you hurtling back to the start line. Here’s a screenshot of some of the moderators having an impromptu party after successfully completing the first maze. But a little-known fact is that there was a different maze room before this one. The original Maze room was officially known as the Rock Maze, because it was made up of thousands of rocks that lined up together to make the walls. And certain mysterious Rock Sculptures appeared inside, such as the odd (and kind of creepy) Giant Dog Head. Here is a screenshot of what part of the original Rock Maze looked like. And now for something new. Wait, something new? But Dizzywood isn’t online anymore. That’s true, but Dizzywood will live on in a few different forms. And here’s a sneak peek at something you’ll be seeing...
