Re: Developer Commentary videos!

Did the verticality of this level incentivize making the flight powerup?

Re: Playtonic's Next Game... Soon? (Speculation)

Intriguing. This is probably a bit forward of me to ask, but how lucrative has YL proven to be? Has it made Playtonic enough money for a huge, sprawling adventure as their second game? What counts as a huge sprawling adventure? As far as I know Yooka Laylee sold well enough for them to grow as a co...

Re: Lead Community Manager reporting in

Welcome Daley. Always a pleasure to introduce new team members, especially Rare alum. I'm glad that Playtonic's going to more actively post threads themselves bc this forum has basically been kept alive by the community over the last year. Can't wait to see what Playtonic's cooking in the near futu...

Re: Playtonic's Next Game... Soon? (Speculation)

It would be interesting if the karts are the characters themselves. Imagine an ostritch with wheels and it then grows legs when it approaches a platform section.

Re: Playtonic's Next Game... Soon? (Speculation)

It will probably take some time because they really need to make sure the next game is good. They don't have the same deadlines and they won't be able to rely on nostalgia-driven hype as much as they did with yooka laylee. Yooka Laylee got lots of criticism for its lack of polish and they probably w...

Re: Lessons Playtonic shouldn't learn from Yooka Laylee

Don't listen to the paid reviews who were paid to hate on Yooka-Laylee. Yooka-Laylee is a great game. We all know the fair reviews honestly reviewed the game. What..? So the bad reviews are there because the reviewers were paid to hate and the good reviews are honest? Gtfo... :lol: (I like YL mysel...

Re: Playtonic's Next Game... Soon? (Speculation)

I hope that they make something for ''adults'' or at will at least make something for ''adults'' someday. There's a big void when it comes to platformers with complex gameplay and dark themes. A combination of ''childish'' elements and ''mature'' elements allows for the most creative freedom.

Re: N64 graphics

Maybe they should've just scrapped it depending on how much effort it takes to make. One aspect of N64 graphics doesn't hold much nostalgic value on its own. The 240p screen of the 3DS doesn't make me nostalgic either.

It looks more like a game from 2005 on low settings than like a N64 game to be honest.

Re: E3 2018

Overall I thougth it was pretty good. Microsoft showed a crazy amount of games. Barely any exclusives but that's just better for the consumer. Bethesda showed/announced some great stuff. At this point I consider trading my Switch for a PS4. I've waited years for a good Nintendo console and they had ...

Re: E3 2018

God, that Nintendo E3 sucked. I genuinely expected something from Playtonic. They didn't even show Metroid, Bayonetta or Pikmin.

It could be Yooka-Toolee.

Because ''tooka laylee'' has wordplay while ''yooka toolee'' just tries to mimick ''banjo tooie''. ''Yoo'' sounds like ''too'', you know.

Re: What other world themes would you like to see?

Good idea. It could also be an Scottish coast with a layout similar to that of Treasure Trove Cove.

Best World

It surprised me how different people's opinions are. Let's settle this once and for all with a poll. You can select two worlds. My top 5 5 - casino A visual mess. Has nice levels but also a lot of filler. 4 - sw0mp Confusing and somewhat ugly (though that's the point). Has decent levels. 3 - ice Gre...

It's weird how few indie/kickstarter devs actually continue making games or try to grow.

Re: Funding the Next Game

Platinum Games had multiple games in the realm of Yooka Laylee while having no major hit. Wonderful 101 took 1.5 times the resources of the first Bayonetta which was a big project already. The main difference is that they didn't fund their own games. Turns out Playtonic multiplied in size and is wor...

Re: Playtonic's Next Move

They should first release a Shovel Knight/Undertale equivalent. Something simple yet universally praised. Then there will be more hype for a more ambitious project.

Re: E3 2018

I forgot how just a part of the team worked on the switch version while others were already developing the next game. Yooka Laylee had an E3 trailer just a year after the kickstarter ended. The trailer footage was really similar to the final product.
