Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

If YL does come out on Switch in 2018, any remaining goodwill might finally evaporate.

Never heard of that one. They must have sneaked it out.

Re: What might happen to Playtonic if Yooka-Laylee flops...

According to SteamSpy, close to 100K on Steam alone. http://steamspy.com/app/360830 That's a good start, all things considered. Does it include sales which were eventually refunded as well? Because there was a brief phase where people deliberately bought then asked for a refund on Steam due to a lo...

It's still that case that YL on Nintendo Switch will be digital only, right?

I love the Wii U version, touchscreen gadgets make it a much more engaging experience.

Fortune Fish's first game: Kroko Bongo

Messrs Stamper have launched the first game of their new company. It's REALLY engaging:

Bringing this one back to ask: how has YK sold so far, do we have data?

Re: Playtonic's next project

The more I think about it, the more I think Playtonic should do something utterly dissimilar to YK.

If this company is going to become major, it needs a lot of feathers in its cap and a varied portfolio.

Re: Playtonic developing other external franchises and I.P?

This could be a good way of raising funds for future projects once Yooka-Laylee has finished:

A kickstarter for a second game would likely go down badly, but going to a major player with the offer of reviving an old IP or some such would go down better.

Re: Funding the Next Game

Playtonic should do what Messrs Stamper did in the late 80s:

Make some extremely impressive demoes and examples of what they can do, show them off to Nintendo and thus convince the Big N to invest.

Re: Wishes For Twooka Laylee (Non official name)

I'd like Playtonic to do something unrelated before doing another platformer - that way, they can use whatever experience/new characters from that new project in the second YL.

After that, I hope they have a thorough look at YL before starting on a sequel, to see what works and doesn't work.

Re: Shared Universe and Next Game Protagonist

I think it would be more interesting if they used the characters they create as actors, so the designs appear in other games but they could have vastly different roles and characterisations. So Yooka could show up, but is playing a totally different role/character. Hate that idea. One of the worst ...
