Re: Funding the Next Game

How many companies have gone back to KS for their next game? I'm actually curious. This exactly. This is what spurred the question to begin with. Given that I'm no professional game developer, I have no idea what it takes to go from kickstarter to full-fledged company. I'm also curious on the units...

Funding the Next Game

So I've been wondering this for a while, and with the lack of news lately I figured it might be a good way to distract us for a bit. How will Playtonic fund their next game? I ask because I know lots of people (whether they are majority or simply very loud minority, I like to believe the latter) did...

Re: Cancelled?

I didn't realize there was a lot of other social media negativity going on for Playtonic right now. Personally, I hope they keep development to a single platform next time (fingers crossed for Switch), and maybe expand their team to an extra member or two to specifically post on the forums and keep ...

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

I totally agree, but unfortunately fandom tends to lose patience and understanding fast. It just kind of goes with the business. I think Playtonic understands this for the most part, like most developers would. But it is nice to have reminders like "They quit their jobs for this." It is a ...

Re: Cancelled?

I think you're starting to get a bit worked up there, Shan. ;) I like to think of this as "cabin fever," only with a Yooka Laylee skin put over it. People start to go mad when they can't leave their cabin in a long enough time, just like people seem to be going mad not experiencing YL! I f...

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

To me that doesn't sound like they're planning on cancelling the Switch version, it sounds like them saying when they're happy with everything (ie testing phase is done, marketing is planned, if they know whether they'll be able to release physical copies or not), that they'll let us know. I'm glad...

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

I was luckily able to play the game on Steam for no extra cost, so I was certainly tied over without the Switch release. For everyone else... man, I can only imagine how awful this wait has been. As for the update... SERIOUSLY? They don't say anything more than "We know there is huge demand for...

Re: Is input lag prevalent on PC as well as consoles?

Sorry for the double post, but I did just remember a place where I definitely had input lag: the final boss, during the outside part of the battle. It was so bad that I decided to stop trying on the 3-butterfly mode. This happened - notably - after the patch was applied. I think I remember slight la...

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

I wish mom and dad would say "We're almost there." But they seem to be up in the front seats, unable to hear us :o I imagine this is killing Playtonic a lot. I think their fans are actually quite important to them. I can just imagine the dread they feel when it looks like something is 99% ...

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

It's not like we are asking for a lot: just an update to remind us that they are still around. One guy thought the Switch version was cancelled for crying out loud. We haven't heard anything from them in over a month, besides small bits off of twitter. Furthermore, many Switch players have yet to pl...

Re: Is input lag prevalent on PC as well as consoles?

There might have been some input lag before the PC patch, but I don't think I've had any problems since then. Even then, the only thing I can specifically remember that might have been input lag was during the Hurdle Hijinx game, and I'm pretty sure that was a glitch rather than input lag.

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

I was defending them just under two weeks ago; I was convinced they were holding back an update for when they could announce the console patches were live. And yet here we are now, nearly two weeks later, and nothing to show for it at all. This is basically the first website I check every morning, h...

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

I wonder how difficult it is for them to get the "final OK" on this patch? I will say it again: I really hope they only develop on a single platform next time. If it has to be Steam, so be it. Of course I'd prefer Switch, but that's my Nintendo bias coming out. If they don't deliver a full...

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

That's great news. So DLC hasn't been forgotten! My fears are greatly lessened now. I imagine they really are just waiting to post an update with the news that the console patches have hit.

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

This lack of communication is starting to frighten me. At least they've had some apparent communication on Twitter. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised to find out the DLC isn't coming. I seriously wonder how profitable this game has been for them. I know on Steam it has good reviews, so maybe th...

Re: Console patch "shouldn't be long now"

^^^^^ This. Are we really going through all of July without a single news update on their own website? I really hope Playtonic sticks to a single platform next time. While I truly do love Yooka-Laylee, if I hadn't gotten to play it on Steam shortly after it first came out, I know I would just be sic...

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

So there is still no update... I'm officially worried/upset. I guess they could still update on Monday, but I don't consider that likely at this point. It's been over a month since we have had any news. What is happening?

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

If Playtonic can't get this out on Switch by September, I do believe it will be very much forgotten in favor of games like Mario. It basically is forgotten right now! One of the only things that could save it is the Switch version reviews coming in as far superior to the original release's. Even the...

Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

Hello! I was inspired to make this post from Piet in the "Split n' Polish" thread. It has been a long while since we last heard from Playtonic, and the wait is starting to hurt. I'm sure I'm not alone in being terrified that when we do finally get an update, it will be highly lackluster. S...

Re: Spit N Polish

Perhaps they don't want to make an official post about things until they have that patch release date squared away? Hopefully they'll have more news about the Switch version then too, as well as the DLC stuff they are offering us. I for one can't wait until the bloody "exposition" has fini...
