NORTHAMPTONSHIRE, UK Tues 24th February
Mia has grown, and is struggling with the fact that Professor B M Werken wants her to be his little girl when she wants to be her own person.
D-Troit is pure evil and has his own Crash Impact Dummy manufacturing plant, now joint market leader with the Professor’s outfit. His Crash Test Dummies are a little evil-looking though. There’s just... something about them. There’s still a little tiny piece of good in him, mind you, and that’s important.
D-Troit wants revenge on the Professor for something he did in the past but what? How can D-Troit avenge the wrong he feels? Easy, steal the one thing that’s precious to the Professor, Mia.
The Professor is distraught and must regain his precious Mia. He turns to what he knows and trusts, selecting CID one of his crash impact dummies to save the day and recover his daughter. Sure, CID has heard about Mia, all the dummies have and like all the other dummies, CID has heard rumours that she’s the most beautiful girl in the world. As the boss’s daughter, they all thought she was untouchable. But... given the chance to rescue her? That’d show them something, right? It’d show that a mere Crash Impact Dummy, a nobody, a guy stuck in a job that he hates through no choice of his own - it’d show that he really can be something…….
About CID The Dummy
A star is born and he's made to last. CID THE DUMMY makes his debut in Oxygen Games’ all-new action platformer. CID THE DUMMY is sure to grab you with its enjoyable, fun gameplay, featuring a totally original character with charisma and lots of moves.

• Interact as only a crash impact dummy can. Climb walls, swing on ropes, burn obstacles, destroy exploding barrels, use lifters, bounce on springs and with a neat head butt destroy walls all in stunningly realized environments. Game environment interaction is the most important part of the gameplay.
• CID's world is swarming with a host of fearfully fun enemies like the Dumper, Cursed Dummy and the bizarre Failed Experiment.
• Apart from fighting enemies, the player will enjoy solving puzzles, avoiding traps and using acrobatic skills to get out of dangerous situations!
