Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch through Limited Run Gammes

Just in case anyone missed the update on Kickstarter today, the 10% discount code for backers has been reactivated and will be valid through the evening of Sunday September 30th.

Re: How many Kickstarter milestones are there left for Playtonic Games to complete?

In addition to the initial list of languages mentioned, Yooka Laylee had translations added for Korean, Chinese, and Japanese starting back in December 2017.

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch through Limited Run Gammes

Looks like more than 10,000 pre-orders have been made so far, that's kinda awesome.

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch through Limited Run Gammes

Really? :shock: I didn't even try because they said it was for the standard version (and I didn't want to waste precious seconds). I had thought so too until right before it went on sale. I think I saw a statement about it on twitter at the last minute, and decided to try it. I had the code copied ...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch through Limited Run Gammes

I'd have settled for the standard version if I had to, but I'm happy to say I was able to snag a copy of the Classic Edition! Glad the discount code worked for that one, too. It's insane how quickly that batch sold out. :shock:

I guess mine just hasn't been emailed yet then. Oh well, won't matter anyways if I manage to order the Collectors edition.

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch through Limited Run Gammes

No, the normal price for the non-collectors edition without backer discount is $49.99. The Collectors edition (which they now seem to be calling the Classic Edition) is priced at $74.99. I'm not seeing anything set at $249.99, but there is a $219.99 September 7th Mega-Bundle, if that's what you're r...

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. ...

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...

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 ...
