Re: I've Played Yooka-Laylee: My Thoughts (Spoiler-free)

Spoilers:

Have you found all the Pirate treasures? I assume you have! I'm wondering if there's an incentive to do that beyond just finding them? Thanks for the well-written review.

Re: Worlds real order of Levels 3,4 and 5

Evidence towards some level being space themed: -"Skiffy Skirmish" is a boss tune. "Skiffy" could be sort of a play on "Sci-fi." -An arcade tune being titled "Up 'n' Nova." Also, the track "Armed and Dangerous" could be referring to an octopus boss, ...

Re: Will this have boss battles like in banjo tooie?

The recent OPM issue confirms that Rampo is a boss! Between him and the "Head of Security," I think the bosses look great.

Re: Yooka-Laylee Soundtrack Sneak-peak?

Seeing as Playtonic tweeted it with the googly eyes (which usually mean news), I do think there will be something new on it! I think there will also be an article in the magazine, hopefully some new screens too.

Re: 6 worlds??

I predict 7 worlds + a hub. 20 pagies per world, 200 quills per world. The hub world won't have any quills, but will have 30 pages. 4 pagies come from each of the 7 levels (28) That leaves 2 remaining pagies, which I believe would be a tutoral pagie you get in the beginning, and one final secret en...

Re: Toybox feedback & discussion thread (SPOILERS)

I played the Toybox for the first time in a while this weekend. With the amount of times that the spring jump is used just in the Toybox, I can really see that sound effect becoming grating. In the Capital Cashino trailer, we also hear the sound that the charged roll move makes, and, in my opinion, ...

Re: Capital Ca$hino!

Two other things:

1. I hope exchanging coins for pagies is only for some of the pagies, and that you still earn some through exploration and missions and whatnot. Having to buy all the pagies might feel strange...

2. Any ideas what the "head-spinning" transformation might be?

Re: Anyone else find that defeating enemies feels unsatisfying?

From the Toybox, I thought fighting enemies mostly felt good, I just hope you don't only ever encounter groups of enemies at a time, where you have to stop and fight them all for no reason. I'd rather have single enemies placed in dangerous positions- for example, near the Mollycool in Tribalstack T...

Re: Capital Ca$hino!

This world is really cool! + Those enemies are decks of cards with poker chips for arms. + It's like Grunty Industries and Witchy World with the feeling that you're now in hostile territory. The stealthy sections in the "staff-only" areas look awesome. + The pinball sections they mentioned...

Re: Yooka-Laylee launch date in line with Switch launch?

I don't think it's coming out on Switch, at least not simultaneously alongside the promised platforms. There may be a port at some point, but if the game was at all delayed to accommodate the release on a platform that wasn't part of the Kickstarter, that could very easily make Playtonic look bad. I...

Re: Number of Worlds

Meinhardl, I think you've brought me back to earth. I remember Chris reiterating 5 worlds as recently as EGX, I'll try to find where he said that. I expect 5 (awesome) worlds and cannot wait to see the unique expansions they all have- I'm sure this will be a big game. I've seen people on other forum...

Re: Number of Worlds

You make a lot of good points! Thanks for compiling all the evidence. I think you might be right about them combining Shipwreck Creek and Hivory Towers for the totals. I do think there's a sixth world, and I do think Playtonic likes to mislead, but I don't think they'd outright lie. Maybe it's a &qu...

Re: Swamp Level - Confirmed?

I'm almost positive that I read somewhere in an article that a swamp world would be in the game. I also think that the fact that the concept art image is called "Swamp.jpg" kind of proves it. But that isn't 100% proof of course Any chance you remember where the article is? And yeah, there...

Re: Swamp Level - Confirmed?

I think that this might mean that they are just there to reference the painting, and not necessarily confirm that this is a underwater city. ;) That is a great catch! I agree with you that it's probably just a swamp; if I remember correctly, this image came out around the time the Glitterglaze Glac...

Re: Polishing stage

What models do mean exactly? Did you mean the smoke by any chance, that was the most obvious placeholder in my opinion. I worded it a little poorly, I'm talking about draw distance- when you're facing an open area and walking around, sometimes the game doesn't display actual models (platforms, char...

Re: Polishing stage

If anyone here knows anything about game development, I wonder how likely it is that they get rid of the textures and models popping into view. I know all the EGX footage is from an old build, but it's still present in it.

Re: Boxed Release Confirmed

This is great news! It's really cool that they're working on a means for Kickstarter backers to upgrade to the physical version if they like. (Not that I had any doubt, but I think the physical release also means the game won't get delayed again.)

Re: Swamp Level - Confirmed?

This is pure conjecture, but I was thinking about the uses of Yooka's states we know- charged, luminous, sticky, heavy. I can easily picture a swamp having lots of dark places, or maybe lanterns need to be lit (luminous, charged)...I know it's a stretch, but it will be fun being wrong when we actual...
