Re: Interesting tidbit from Y-L 2-year article

I don't want to let anyone down, but I'm pretty sure it's common practice for staff to sign an internal NDA. This would mean Daley and most of the other devs would have signed a Playtonic NDA just as standard procedure, having nothing to do with any third party franchise. Alternatively, Team 17 is t...

Re: 64-bit Tonic available for PC and Switch!

If I could "like" Gorjo's post above, I totally would. Brilliant explanation -- I wish Piet would stop trying to spread his negativity around this community.

Re: DLC = Sequel Theory

We know Playtonic is working on a second game Do we? Yep, it's been known for a long time now. I'm actually surprised we haven't seen anything from it yet because the first hints at a secret project were well over a year ago. Grant even said he had finished his contribution to the project. Music us...

Re: DLC = Sequel Theory

the Kickstarter goals can/should be a bit less rigid than some fans might like, provided the reason for not meeting them is good enough. I actually agree, but you're underestimating the ferocious toxicity some of the community have regarding this issue. I think Playtonic want to stick to their stre...

Re: DLC = Sequel Theory

I think this is very unlikely. We know Playtonic is working on a second game, which might be sequel to Yooka-Laylee, but the DLC is definitely separate to that project. The upcoming DLC is going to be free to all backers. It would be a disaster for a business to spend 2+ years on a full game just to...

Re: When will Project Dream/Banjo Kazooie Betas/Twelve Tales: Conker's 64...be released? :/

I'm curious about all the beta stuff as well, but it's not exactly common practice to release works in progress to the public. Da Vinci never published drafts of the Mona Lisa before he finished the painting... not many people would like you to look at the first drafts of their finished product.

Re: Clive N' Wrench Get A Makeover

Re: Banjo-Kazooie turns 20 today.

I know it's not strictly birthday related (unless you count it as late 20 year anniversary merch?), but I didn't want to create a new topic just for this - is anyone else excited for the Banjo-Kazooie Totaku figurine? https://www.mytotaku.com/Files/FigureImages/28_Banjo-Kazooie-20181015131457039.pn...

This is such an awesome post by the way! Lots of stuff I didn't know about, or had simply forgotten about.

Re: Physical Yooka-Laylee Switch at "Best Buy"

I was too late to order my copy from Limited Run (and didn't really want to wait for the expected delivery time anyway), so I just downloaded Yooka on Switch a few days ago instead. I would have liked the physical version, but I won't pick it up now that I've gone ahead with the download. I am, howe...

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

This image was posted by Playtonic last year, after Yooka's release. The central character looks a bit like Schell , but the silhouette is different. Could this be a tease for the next game that nobody realised, maybe a character from Schell's universe? https://images-ext-1.discordapp.net/external/1...

I don't think they are working on a racer.


Diddy Kong racing had only one established racer. Banjo amd Conker were unknown at the time.

I can't find a link at the moment, but I'm 99% sure I read an interview with a Playtonic dev where he said that a Diddy Kong Racing spiritual successor was actually the team's first choice for their debut game, but in the end they felt they were obligated to do a new 3D platformer first, both in te...
