Re: Let's talk about Nuts & Bolts

I've tried a few times to get into it and I just couldn't.
I have always found it overcomplicated, boring and unbearably smug in terms of "the old games were tedious collect-a-thons, DUR HUR HUR!"

Re: Conker's Bad Fur Day

Of all the Rare IPs, this is the one I think is least likely ever to come back.
Not least since Chris Seavor was sacked and the team is moving on to very different things.

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

Bumping this back up to ask: With the Switch version finally arriving in just under a fortnight's time, how has the game done so far? Is the company's future secure? I'm not sure about the sales but I'm pretty sure Playtonic was willing to go ahead with the game even if the kickstarter failed (it m...

Re: Funding the Next Game

The above comment is so bitter and filled with assumptions. And IMO if this game ends up missing some magic, it will moreso be the lack Gregg Mayles influence/oversight than anything. On topic: do we know how this game has sold? Not well from everything that I've been able to suss out. Steam penetr...

Re: FINALLY - Switch release date!!!

I'll snap it up at some point on Switch.

I do think they missed the bus coming after the impossibly impressive Super Mario Odyssey, but that's just the way it goes.

Re: Yooka-Laylee 2

I kind of hope they rest the platforming for a little while after this and try something utterly unrelated.

Maybe a fighter or a racer - more strings to the company's bow would mean they become much more acclaimed and impressive.

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?

Fortune Fish's first game: Kroko Bongo

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

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.
