The Dizzywood Map

Did you know that there was anย unreleased map of Dizzywood that showed far more about the known worlds than was ever revealedย 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, sketchedย 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 Dizzywood?

    That map looks like it is filled with quests.
    I do in fact love quests anyway.
    I think its filled with battle and Greek Mythology and fantasy ‘-‘
    It looks amazing ~

  6. My heart aches that these ideas never came to fruition. I love Dizzywood even now.

    I imagine quests and monsters and friendly spirits through every area of this map. It’s wonderful.

  7. So amazing, I’d love to do those quests! QUESTS WERE AWESOME!
    Best virtual world ever: Dizzywood
    I bet if it got published again it’d earn a lot of money!

  8. Is that SPACE! Amazing! One of the best things I liked about Dizzywood was the way you got around, the walking motions were very smooth and smart of you. Tug on the arrow to go faster, pull the arrow towards you to go slower. Spin the arrow to spin around. I thought that was very unique and a lot of virtual worlds lacked that charm for your character, because just that little detail I felt gave the game lots of personality.

  10. Ima cry I miss dizzywood soo much! If your reading this peeps from rocket paper scissors, I just want you to know that these were probably the best times in my life and the friends I made were amazing. Miraculously a lot of us who were friends still stuck together after DW shut down. And there’s one very important think we all have in common. We all want this game back! We miss it so much! I wish it could just come back and literally everyone I know from DW has cried at least once, since our favorite game was taken down. You wouldn’t believe the amount that us dizzywoodees talk about dizzywood still to this day! It’s a big part of who we are! I do believe that if you brought it back, it would be a smash hit! I can almost guarantee it would be a hit! Once dizzywooders got news of it comming back we would freak out and join and get all of our friends to join and spend countless hours loving that game! We really do miss it and can’t quite explain it with words, the dizzywood community as a whole will never forget, and we have a special place in our hearts for dizzywood. We just hope that one day, we could finally join our friends and meet in Prestos Grove on Whirly (my favorite server) and just be happy again.

  14. This map looks amazing! You can see so much POTENTIAL. I loved seeing updates in the game, and missed all the events. I miss winter festival. I still remember color war, haha.

  16. Oh My Goodness, It’s been three years and I’m still checking to see if the site is coming back! YOU GUYS HAVE DEDICATED MEMBERS, I myself and my sister joined in 2007 and was hooked. Dizzywood was THE best online game and STILL is. No other game can top Dizzywood. The graphics, detail, and adventures were just remarkable. I tried playing secretbuilders..or whatever it’s called..but it just lacked so many things that you guys had. Why did you guys even close? Closing out 3 million people! That’s not fair. Come back! Oh… and cool map ๐Ÿ˜€

  17. Aww I miss Dizzywood… it’s been over 6 years since I first played. Cool map, I liked Dizzywood before the major changes to Presto’s Grove and Presto’s Edge.

  18. Ahh This game was the best!! My favorite virtual world of them all.. hopefully it comes back sometime soon

  19. Dizzywood is not coming back… Sb replaced it. I started playing 2008. Now i’m 18 years old. ๐Ÿ˜€ But still.. I remember this site like I remember and old friend! Guys try not to think of it or visit here too often but doesn’t mean you couldn’t remember it sometimes. I loved playing dw but I think I am now too old for this… They should just report us straight that this game is over. (Sorry about my terrible English)
    I’m sorry to be negative Nancy here but I have waited dizzywood’s return as much as you dizzies since it ended. Have to face the truth even if I know I’m going to check this site at least once in a month… Take care! =)

  20. Bring DW back or some other website that is not as bad as SB.

  21. Looks amazing! Wish we had a chance to explore all that, Dizzywood was amazing.

    • Expanding on my comment a little.

      Dizzywood was my escape. My place where I could hang out with friends and explore and just be free. I miss it like heck. I guess I’m considered ‘too old’ now but since 2008, I had loved this game and I always will.

      If I ever had the chance to log in as Windsong once more, I’d take it. I tried to get into SB but it wasn’t as enjoyable. It didn’t captivate me like DW did. If DW ever came back, I’d play, irregardless of age.

  22. It’s not like Secretbuilders was made for Dizzywood anyway.
    Only a small part is considered Dizzywood and it’s not like a lot of people go there.
    Dizzywood might need to remove this site if they don’t consider bringing the site back. J/S

    “Hoping they can bring it back” ;$

  23. REMAKE ORIGINAL DIZZYWOOD, NOT THIS WEIRD SECRET BUILDERS BULL.

  25. Hallo, long time DWer here. I think the site closed because of funding problems. If you guys remember, not alot of people were Silver and Gold explorers back then, about 12% of the population were members. Dizzywood is known for making the “Ad Free Kid Game” thing popular. Maybe, if we find a way to raise funds, they could bring it back!

  26. Wow… I haven’t even typed in the word Dizzywood for a couple of years. I’ve tried new online gaming sites, but I always yearn for DizzyWood. So today, as I was more nostalgic than usual, I type in DizzyWood.com and I was shocked that you guys were still posting! I think it’s amazing that you’re trying to keep in touch with all us Dizzies. I hope that one day, eventually, DizzyWood will be once more. Maybe. Just maybe.

  27. idk if anyone remembers me but I’d really like the chance to meet up with some old friends if possible or somehow get dizzyworld back…

  28. It would actually be a profitable venture to bring this game back now that 90% of the users are probably old enough (14+) to either pay for this game with a job or their parents may be doing better financially so that they can pay. A friend payed for my gold membership for me when I had it but now I’m old enough to pay for my own. I think it was like 36.99 a year for silver and 40 for gold? That’s less than A Netflix account for a year. The original creators should try to run some ads for a kickstarter or something.. run some old game videos to rally some popularity & talk about it. You’d at least make enough to do a “throwback” week or day where you bring the servers back up for one last play. Or you could just let the money pile up (if you sold the rights to SecretBuilders) while finding a way to possibly buy it back. Dizzywood would appeal to so many kids, there is a whole new generation of children (a lot of ex-dizzywood players and their friends probably have siblings who would love it!) & the teens who used to get on it everyday would love it and at least half will most likely come back and be willing to pay! People still buy vinyl, pay $100s for art that costs like $50 to make, so why wouldn’t users still wanna play dizzywood?

  33. I miss the ole Dizzywood SO much! It was one of my all-time favorite things.

  34. So I check this site every month to make sure the beloved Dizzywood hasn’t returned. I realized that i would actually do ANYTHING to get Dizzywood back. So what do you need? Is it money? Just name it and i’ll get it for you. Get back to me and let me know what I can do.

  35. I believe I was one of the reasons dizzywood closed. I remember hacking it with packet editing. Had moderator tools & clothes & infinite gold & such. GOOD TIMES. Would give it all up to have the old community back though. Im grown now so. Miss my old home. with my bears & staircase & such.

  36. It’s 2016 and I’m still hoping for the return of Dizzywood. It will forever be one of my all time favourite games. If it ever comes back, I’ll be waiting to join up!
