Bigwiz the wizard has left the castle in a hurry, in order to turn the King’s son Newton back into a frog.
Indeed, he was in such a hurry that he forgot to pack his spare wand, forgot to lock his laboratory door, and most importantly, forgot to return his utterly stupid, idiotic, incompetent, brain-dead nephew Slightly to his parents’ mud hut in the hills.
Oh well, it could be worse. A sunburnt dragon could be running off with the beautiful Princess Croak as we speak. The wizard’s spell cabinet might have been knocked over by a Flaming Octarian Whirlwind, scattering the spells everywhere. His kingliness the King might, in a fit of blind panic, have given Slightly the wizard’s private spell book to read. It might rain.
You see, it could be worse. But as it is, there’s not a cloud in the sky, a breeze in the air, or a whiff of dragon’s breath to be sniffed.
Hang on, where’s that pink fire-breathing creature going with that screaming princess? Is that a gentle wind wafting in through the door, or is it something stronger?
Oh no. Get the washing in mother, and lock all doors. Cancel the papers, and shoot the cow. I think it’s going to be one of those days…
What do you do when you get the rights back to one of your most endearing creations? Well I couldn’t just let him die, could I?
Slightly Magic is remastered and reprogrammed for a new generation, and for everyone who remembers him from his first outing. You can find out more at slightlymagic.uk
Even more exciting is the fact that he’s finally returning in a new game, together with a host of old and new characters. I can’t give too much away at the moment, but expect some amazing news very soon.
