"PENNY"

Postby ShanPen » Fri Jun 15, 2018 5:54 pm

Anyone know what the deal is with the name "Penny" showing up all throughout the game?

Did I miss something in the storyline about a character called "Penny"? Or are you all as baffled about it as I am? Anyone have any theories?

It's graffitied very faintly on the purple beam just above Yooka and Laylee's heads, and there is a heart with an arrow through it right above the name too. It's hard to see in the screen shot, I might post a closer up screen shot if I remember tonight when I get home from work.

Here's the same image altered so the graffiti stands out more.

A closer up screen shot of the "Penny" graffiti.

(And the same image with colours edited to make the word clearer).

Maybe one of the developers is in love with a girl named Penny.

Hm? I have no idea...

Maybe it's symbolic of a "lucky penny", being Playtonic's first game and all.

Probably just a small easter egg that has little meaning aside from an inside joke.

Pennsylvania and New York are close to each other... PENnsylvania x NY equals PENNY????

Even PENNsYlvania first 5 letters without the S (which means SONY obviously) equals PENNY.

I did try asking Playtonic about who this "Penny" is on Twitter, but they just liked the post and didn't give any information about it.

So I tried asking Steve Mayles as he sometimes replies to questions about games and characters, but he didn't reply. :(

This reaction certainly makes it more interesting. Won't be the last we see of Penny, I'd reckon.
