If wishes were fishes, Playtonic would have a thrice-tapping goldfish in this game already.

I hope they have a goldfish that taps twice, and then something unexpected happens. Maybe gets concussion and goes belly-up, just to troll everyone who wants to see an unnamed goldfish tap three times on his bowl.

That sounds like a major felony.

I think it's now at the point that I would find the game funnier if it DIDN'T have a fish that hit its head against its bowl three times.

Wow, how rude. Deep down everyone wants a goldfish that taps the side of his bowl three times. Stop trying to control your natural urges, guys. Let's finish the fight.

Why not just have something new and "Playtonic-y". There will be something greater, in every Playtonic game....

People are attached to the past. It's expected given that the whole thing of 3D platforming revival is fueled by nostalgia.

As far as I am concerned, I don't mind or even care. :lol:

Of course we'll love all the new and Playtonic-y things in the game, but the reason people like the goldfish idea is because it's a nice homage to Rare (who had a habit of putting a particular goldfish in several of their games) and it establishes an implied connection with Banjo-Kazooie.

All in all it's just a bit of harmless fun.

Now I know how the Intro go up. You see a bowl with the goldfish who taps twice, then gets eaten by one of our Protagonists.
Homage to Rare and a funny start for old fans. :D

Actually I would love that intro. One could reasonably assume he was about to tap a third time, only to be interrupted by his untimely demise....

I'd be okay with that intro, and we all know very well that he'd somehow survive that. Goldfish who thrice-tap are strong as hell.

Yeah he'd probably somehow end up in pants-land for " It's Mr. Pants: The 3D Platformer" which is obviously Rares next game.

Of course, of course. Im all for nostalgia and Banjo Kazooie

Maybe this goldfish will give you a Jiggy that you have to take to Banjo and Kazooie to exchange for a Pagie!

Something like this could possibly happen.

Maybe there'd be a single Jiggy in Ukulele hidden to give to BK and they give you back a Pagie). These could even be linked in to a stop and swap bit of fun between Ukulele and a Rare game, obviously all exclusive to an XBOX ONE version.

Or, they could hide the goldfish in some unusual area of the game, and if you find him before you talk to a certain bear and bird in the Xbox version of the game then the bear would comment on the fact that his pet fish ran away.

They could hide a goldfish bowl in every level as an Easter Egg. It would probably make my day seeing one at the bottom of a water level. Nobody will know the truth about his journey.

That's actually what inspired that comment.

I like Alph's idea better anyway.

It looks like the kickstarter is gonna need to add some new stretch goals soon....who wouldn't dump tons of money towards a nameless goldfish who taps on his bowl three times?
