So before I asked you guys what you found flawed with BK and BT. This time, I'm going to be a bit more specific and just ask about BK, and record votes via strawpoll. What made BK such a good game in your eyes? I'm not looking for every minor detail that was good about it, just what, in your eyes, puts it a step above the competition.

Ambiance. The feeling of being immersed in a believable fairy tale land was very charming.

Coupled with all the secret mystery.

The music, a couple nights ago my girlfriend asked me to mute it because she wanyed to go to sleep. I was offended. No point playing it with no sound.

Yup music for me too. The way it changed as you moved around was pure class and perfectly fitted to the area/character.

The atmosphere- a lot due to the music, but the whole look of the worlds was great.

All the characters felt like a worthwhile part of the world, not just there for the sake of making an objective.

Each level and Grunty's lair itself was well populated and individual- it never felt generic.

Each area felt very well designed. It never took too long to get around and was always a pleasure to explore.

One thing that I loved about BK that I never see mentioned was having a note score/ notes re-appearing upon death. It gave consequence to your death and was really the hardest part of 100% the game. I'm actually pretty bummed they took it out of the XBLA version. The feeling of relief and satisfaction after getting the last note in the engine room is unmatched. I don't know if this is realistic for Yooka-Laylee depending on the scale of the worlds.

The level of difficulty + music

Music, level design, ambiance. They are the things I dig.
But even more so, the rhythming witch also made this game big!
Then there's one think I crave for still,
Big, huge secrets to be solved with skill!

It's tough to pinpoint, especially since I was a lot younger when I played it. I ended up picking almost all of the options on the straw poll, because I did like all of those things. Years later I can still remember the sounds everything made and I still hum some of the tunes. I don't remember the controls being at all frustrating, which for the N64 is kind of amazing. I definitely appreciated that I didn't have to do much back tracking at all. But there was also a unique feeling to it. The characters were mostly unusual, and I liked that there were basically two main characters without there being a break between them in the game play. It was also quite funny, which is always appreciated. I just remember really enjoying the game, and it's one of the few I played to completion on the N64. I'm very much looking forward to seeing what you guys do with Yooka-Laylee. I'm usually hesitant to back games on Kickstarter, but you guys have my confidence and my backing. :D
