Re: Lessons Playtonic shouldn't learn from Yooka Laylee

I agree with all the comments regarding not hand-holding. It's one of the most important things, in my opinion, that Playtonic needs to do going forwards. The original Gloomy Gem Grotto was one of the most challenging sections of the game for me. I felt like I was back in the 90's playing an actual ...

Re: Yooka-Laylee's first anniversary!

Thanks for posting that twitter link. I had seen Grants tweet way back then, but I had not noticed Andy's subsequent tweet. Perhaps that means it's still a possibility someday, perhaps not.

Re: Yooka-Laylee's first anniversary!

Excellent news! Good to hear confirmation they're still working on Yooka Laylee DLC as well as what I can only assume might be a new project. I'll be looking forwards to when they start talking more about them. :D

Re: Almost one year since yooka-laylee

It would be nice to hear about the DLC, and it would certainly be cool to hear about it around the games 1 year anniversary, but I wouldn't worry too much about what their silence means at this point. A recent tweet from Grant Kirkhope seems to indicate Playtonic is still hard at work on something. ...

Re: Lessons Playtonic might learn from Yooka-Laylee...

Maybe instead of patching the game forcing the easier version of the golf course on everyone, Playtonic could have made an "easy" mode for this section where the wall rises up around the course (like how when kids go bowling the staff can raise up the bumper bars so the kids don't just ge...

Re: Lessons Playtonic might learn from Yooka-Laylee...

Does anyone have any screenshots or videos of these areas before they had their difficulties reduced, for comparison? Because I've heard people mention a that a few points in the game such as Gloomy Gem Grotto and the World 5 golf game were made much easier, but I never got to find out what those c...

Re: DLC now that Switch is out?!

And getting back on topic about DLC, I was wondering do people think the DLC that Kickstarter backers are supposed to get for free will be tied to our copy of the game we were given through Kickstarter, or will it work for one version of any copy of Yooka-Laylee we own? For example, if someone back...

Re: Why So Much Hate???

I'm just sick of the hate. How about you guys? It can be hard to do sometimes, but just try to ignore the hate. Yes, there are some overly critical reviews and also a number of trolls who will simply go around flinging hate at it any chance they get, but all that really matters in the end is whethe...

Re: Playtonic Reddit AMA

I found it particularly interesting that they had wanted to make it so you could jump through the rextro arcade screens like a portal to enter the mini games. Too bad they weren't able to get that working, that would have been neat. Sounds like we can finally expect to hear something about things li...

Just in case anyone didn't see it mentioned on twitter, Playtonic had a Reddit AMA today.

Re: Funding the Next Game

I believe the talk of a MTX-monetised GAAS thing was simply a joke. Gavin Price spoke about what's next for Playtonic in an article on Gamesindustry.biz and said the following: "Maybe it is the MMO built upon the framework of a free-to-play Match-3 puzzler with a lot of loot boxes," Price ...

I always believed it would release eventually, but I absolutely did not expect to hear at this point that it would be releasing in less than a month.

Re: Update Impressions!

Overall it is a very nice update with a great amount of bug fixes. However I just took a look at Gloomy Gem Grotto to see the changes for myself, and unfortunately the changes there do seem to have gone too far. There's just no challenge to that section at all after the update. Except for the couple...
