We’re now in the release window for the Evercade, and the hype just continues to build. The team at Evercade have just revealed their latest cartridge and it’s a special one! It’s an Oliver Twins Collection that features 7 Dizzy games, and all the profits go to charity!
The Oliver Twins Collection features 11 games (which we have listed below) and is a special project between Codemasters, The Oliver Twins and Evercade. Even better, all of the profits on this collection will be going towards the Nationalvideo Game Museum in Sheffield, UK!
Not only do you get your hands on 11 classic games, you also get to support the preservation of the history we all know and love!
The 11 games on The Oliver Twins Collection are:
Treasure Island Dizzy
Go! Dizzy Go!
Dizzy The Adventurer
Mystery World Dizzy
Super Robin Hood
If you’re a Dizzy fan, you must be in dream land! This takes the total number of revealed carts up to 14 for the Evercade, with over 160 licensed games – with plenty more planned in the future!
A Quote From The Oliver Twins:
“We were really excited to hear about the Evercade. It promised to be an awesome way to play officially licensed Retro games, either on the move or the TV – with classic collectable Cartridges. It was well designed and a great price. What could be better?!Then they reached out to Codemasters and us to ask permission for a special Oliver Twins collection which would include 11 of our classic 8-bit console games!That now makes it the best Retro console in our eyes and we’re really pleased that thousands more people will be able to enjoy the games we wrote around 30 years ago!The lovely people at Blaze and Codemasters have also agreed that ALL profits and licencing royalties go to charity.” – Philip & Andrew Oliver AKA The Oliver Twins
A Quote From Codemasters:
“We’re incredibly pleased to support this project, which helps a worthwhile cause while also celebrating some truly classic gaming IP (and a piece of the Oliver Twins’/Codemasters’ shared history)! Collaborating with the twins, and Evercade, to make this happen has been an absolute pleasure.” – Toby Evan-Jones, VP, Business Development, Codemasters
A Quote From Evercade:
“When we first put this project together, we had a shortlist of titles that were genuine influences on our gaming lives and Dizzy was firmly on this list. We have been fans of the Oliver Twins for as long as we can remember, not just for their quality games, but for their legendary status in the video games industry. It has been an absolute pleasure putting this together and we genuinely cannot wait to release this cartridge. It is also great that through this project, we can give back to the gaming community with all of the profits going to the National Videogame Museum” – Andrew Byatt, Director of Blaze Entertainment
