Re: Secret Pirate Treasure (possible spoilers)

I'm bumping this topic because I just went and found all the pirate treasure in the PC version of the game. I intend to do the same for the Switch version, once I get far enough into it. I'm also thinking about completing the game 100% now that I've had some time to cool off from my initial frustrat...

Official merchandise?

I wanted to know if there's any official merchandise for Playtonic Games or Yooka-Laylee . I want to support these guys however I can, given that it looks like their reputation has been unfairly and unfortunately dragged through the mud, and I figure that buying a T-shirt, or plushies or figures if ...

Re: Why So Much Hate???

I am also really sick of the hate, but I can kind of understand why there's so much hate even though I don't agree with it at all. You know the phrase "you can't take back a first impression"? Well that applies with this game; it doesn't matter how many patches come out to improve the expe...

GameXplain semi-reviews Yooka-Laylee on Switch

Ash Paulsen of GameXplain has played the first third of Yooka-Laylee on the Switch, and gives his thoughts on it so far, compared to the Xbox One version of the game:

It's mostly positive. :)

Re: GameXplain: Super Mario Odyssey Discussion Brings Up Yooka-Laylee

Either way, is Odysee really that good? I really disliked Super Mario Bros U, and Galaxy 2 wasn't all that convincing either. Is it challenging for somebody who prefers Donkey Kong Country levels of difficulty? Super Mario Odyssey is nothing like either of those two games... well, I mean, Galaxy 2 ...

Super Mario Odyssey

Surprised there isn't already a topic about this already. Well either way, take a look at this game's two main trailers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kcdRBHM7kM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGQHQc_3ycE The idea behind Odyssey is that Nintendo's finally going back to the Super Mario 64 style o...

Re: A Hat in Time - Indie 3D Platformer

I was so confused about the release date for this game for years, not to mention I got it in my head somewhere that the developers behind this game were bad, or at least not very nice people. I think someone called them arrogant or something, and I don't know why that stuck with me, but for whatever...

Re: Cuphead - coming side-scroller inspired by 30s cartoons

This might be my Game of the Year along with Super Mario Odyssey . The insane attention to detail when it comes to mimicking the style of classic Dave and Max Fleischer cartoons, coupled with the dedication to making the whole thing both look and sound like a 1930's cartoon, right down to the grainy...

Re: GameXplain: Super Mario Odyssey Discussion Brings Up Yooka-Laylee

Are you referring to me with that Gamexplain stigma? Because I actually love them: I just know that they complained like crazy about Gloomy Gem Grotto and now it's been horribly gutted and dumbed down :( Did Playtonic actually improve Gloomy Gem Grotto? Because I seem to recall people outside of Ga...

GameXplain: Super Mario Odyssey Discussion Brings Up Yooka-Laylee

First of all, I'm aware that there's some negative stigma against GameXplain here, particularly by one certain user. I should probably not that the GameXplain person within this discussion is Andre Segers and not Ash Paulsen, the person who did the Yooka-Laylee review. Either way, you're free to not...

Re: Ambient Noise in Video Games

I feel like when it comes to music and sound effects, they're usually an afterthought to some people, but the wrong music or sound can feel really out of place and take you out of the game more than you'd think. As a game developer, you really need to think about what kind of effect you're aiming fo...

Re: The music is so damn good

Grant Kirkhope and David Wise get all the attention for this game, but I feel like Steve Burke's tracks are also really good yet seem to go unnoticed. Also, I've said it before and I'll say it again, Hivory Towers is almost as awesome and as catchy as Gruntilda's Lair, it's probably my favorite trac...

Okay, first off, what's Bounty Battle ? Well, it's a game being made by French game developer DarkScreen Games. Currently there's a crowd-funding campaign going on for it here: https://www.fig.co/campaigns/bounty-battle As you can see, it's already reached it's goal! I don't know if they'll have str...

It's out for more than a month and we've had only 1 update! The forum seems to be dying out and we don't get important info... I love the game, but c'mon PTG, the communication is pretty... bad, tbh.
