More from The Oliver Twins

We previously told you that we would have the UK’s first hands on preview of SkySaga from Radiant Worlds, the company created by industry legends The Oliver Twins. We also told you that Andrew Oliver would be in attendance to talk about the game and also the history of the Oliver Twins’ games. Well, we can now announce that Andrew will be joined by his brother Philip, meaning we now have both of the famous Oliver Twins at Play Blackpool!

Andrew and Philip will take part in two talks on the Saturday of the show at 1PM and 3PM. The first will be a reminiscent look back at their back catalogue and the life of a bedroom coder in 1980s. Then at 3PM they will talk about their ambitious new project, SkySaga: Infinite Isles, and some of the team will be on hand with the game playable on the expo floor.

Andrew and Philip rose to fame as ‘The Oliver Twins’ in the 1980s when they developed several hugely successful franchises, including the ‘Dizzy’ adventures and the ‘Simulator’ series, published by Codemasters.

So don’t forget to bring your Dizzy games and other items for the Oliver Twins to autograph!

“We’re very much looking forward to Play Expo in Blackpool in May where we’ll be reminiscing about the 80’s and making classic games like the Dizzy series and many other best sellers for Amstrads, Spectrums and other 8 bit computers. Since then we’ve been leading teams making games for virtually every gaming platform and we’re particularly proud of our latest game, SkySaga. We look forward to presenting this game and giving people the opportunity play SkySaga in the expo area. We hope to be around most of the time to chat to people about the games industry.”
