You know about the original version of Dimo's Quest being a game for Amiga produced by Infernal Byte Systems. After some playtime with the other games they developed I feel a lot of the same gameplay I experienced with the SPC Vision games on CD-i. I felt right at home and SPC licensed the game from a quality partner. I just figured out about the original version of Dimo's Quest a few months back. It looks the same, it plays the same. SPC just changed the theme of the game, changing the original frog "Dimo" into the kid "Dimo". The bibliographics file for the CD-i says "Game graphics and design by Infernal Bytes Germany and Eclipse". The only major change from the Infernal bytes version is the Dimo character and the background storyline. Oh and by the way the level codes for the CD-i version are in fact unique for every CD-i player because they are generated from a random seed in the NVRAM file. It's always fun to see people laboriously writing down all 51 level codes and posting them, only to have others find out that they don't work.
I always thought Dimo's Quest was an original CD-i game! Compare both screenshots and look for any differences: First, the original Amiga version by Infernal Bytes:
And then, the game how we know it, created by The Vision Factory:
