The Kickstarter campaign for the ZX Spectrum Next is still underway with 8 days left and has met its funding goal for £250,000 / $322,162. That means it is now reaching for its stretch goals and recently passed the £500,000 mark. When it did that it unlocked a new Dizzy title that will be given to backers of the campaign.
The project will be directed by the original creators of the series, the Oliver Twins. It will be developed by Dmitri & the Crystal Kingdom Dizzy Spectrum remake team, the game represented the last time a Dizzy game released.
Coincidentally, this year marks the 30 year anniversary of Dizzy.
The campaign has stretch goals up to £650,000 although the next stretch goal occurs at £525,000 and sees the hardware upgraded to a massive 1MB RAM across all pledge levels.
