    Really sad to see them go, I have a few friends there and met Philip Oliver at a talk in Leamington just a few weeks ago.

    Codemasters have also offered to help out, as they have a site near Leamington.

    Will they make all of their games orientated toward Americans and dumb down the handling and difficulty?

    OK so that was too easy :naughty:

    Casual and lazy xenophobia everywhere these days unfortunately.

    Shame about the company, Dizzy was one of the greatest series of games ever made - a style I would have thought perfect for tablets and phones...
