Laylee's Big Red Nose

Postby John » Thu Apr 30, 2015 10:22 pm

I was wondering what the Playtonic community thinks.

Gotta be honest the nose is the only part of the character designs that I don't like.

No. :< I'm ecstatic about the gameplay, but I can't deny the nose isn't growing on me.

It just makes you focus on the nose instead of the character and I don't like it

I dont mind it. I also think Laylee will have a huge personality that will override his schozz.

Wanting to remove a character's defining feature?

That's like removing Nemo's gimpy fin.

The blandness that plaguing the gaming industry is getting the best of all of you.

No, they definitely need a defining feature. But a bulging red clown nose isn't by idea of a good one.

If Playtonic decrease the size of Laylee's nose just a bit, then its design will be perfect.

Here we are talking about his nose. If it were normal, no one would be talking about it, thus, being very forgettable character.

There's talk about Yuuka's frills, but it's all positive whereas this is more of a 50/50 split at best

I love the rest of the design, it's adorable, but I'm having trouble accepting the big red nose. I wouldn't want it too small either though, just scale the nose down a bit.

I disagree. If Laylee has a great personality, then he/she will definitely be a memorable character that will be talked about for years to come regardless of his/her design.

I really like his nose. It seems that Laylee will be a bit of a clown and his nose might reflect that.

It has actually grown on me quite a bit, but just a bit. I am fine with it, but I would not mind a change either. I think most people will not like it anyway. I am not too knowledgeable about bats, but are there many with round and red noses like that? Most that I have seen have flat or pointed noses, and I was trying to browse various bat species to see if I could find one that looked similar but I got side-tracked and did not find any.

Who knows, maybe it is supposed to light up and help you see your way through a snowstorm? There is a new artwork that appears on the front page of the website that shows a snowy region...

EDIT: I agree that a simple color change might be good. Perhaps something a little more analogous with the rest of Laylee's color scheme?

Jellyfunk nailed it with the Reggie gif. I love the nose.
Make the forum great again.

I don't have a problem with it being big or red, but that big and red nose really looks like one of those Red Nose Day clip-on clown noses and can never be unseen.

Easy way to fix that while keeping the character of the big nose would be to just change the color (e.g. orange or pink).

Besides that, the character design is really amazing.

I think its adorable, but i will admit some bias as I simply love Bats, and I think I would be happy no matter how the bat character looked.

It's adorably red and huge. Aw. n_n
