Re: Developer Commentary videos! (UPDATED!)

Always interesting to find out what goes on behind the scenes!

My ears perked up when Gavin was talking about what they'd do differently next time.

Re: Clive N' Wrench Get A Makeover

New trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boAnuuJa2ZY Okay, so I've known about this game for a long time, but never took it seriously before watching this trailer. I have to give the developers props -- it actually looks pretty good! They nailed the nostalgic factor, and parts of that trailer l...

Re: Developer Commentary videos!

Were there any scrapped ideas for this world that you really liked, but ultimately couldn't include for whatever reason?

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...

Re: Delightful Details

This is such an awesome post by the way! Lots of stuff I didn't know about, or had simply forgotten about. The Dr Quack statue confused me when I first saw it as it's identical to the one underneath Capital B's golden statue, right? So why is there a second one? I thought it might have been some sor...

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.

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

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...

Re: Lead Community Manager reporting in

Awesome! All sounda great and it's so nice to have you on board. :) The forums are quiet, I do way more lurking than I do posting, but I think it's beneficial to have an official base. Things inevitably pick up and slow down depending on developer updates; it's nice to have somewhere to go when new ...

if they do a get gemini game , i won't buy for sure.

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

I'm excited about this, but I'm more curious than anything. Rare used to be in development of multiple games at a time, but does Playtonic really have the time and resources to do that, especially when they still need to deliver on certain things promised in the Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter? That fasci...

Okay, it all sounds very promising, and although comics aren't usually my thing, the artwork and overall polish of what I've seen on Kickstarter has won me over. I've just backed for $40 -- looking forward to owning the hardback book upon release!

Re: Spin-off graphic novel revealed!

The more I learn about the comic, the more it begins to interest me. I have a question... The comic has eight different "levels" within one giant tome world. All of them are new. You can check out Trowzer's map on the Kickstarter campaign page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dreampri...
