Re: Funding the Next Game

They should just use Switch as the base system they develop for. They're probably going to have a bigger market on the Switch anyway, despite the whole debacle with the Switch port of Yooka-Laylee. Unless Nintendo pays them to do it the Switch will never be the base system for any third party. Imag...

Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

Not released, no release date, no info, NOTHING. They showed YL in Ninties first (if I remember correctly) Switch indie games show and they said it was coming 'REALLY SOON'. That was in March/April... :lol: Can everybody FINALLY agree with me that PTG is f'ing this up badly? :') The blame falls sol...

Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

The 'rebuilding' comment is total b*llsh*t. Unity is supported on Switch and he is just making stuff up... Uh huh, remember when you said that games could be ported to Switch in a week and that there was no way YL would be 2018? Clearly I'm the one making stuff up and you know everything. If it's s...

Re: Funding the Next Game

And then release the game day one on all platforms, now that they're getting the hang of the most recent newcomer, the Nintendo Switch. The Switch will never get the game on day one because it takes so much extra effort to downgrade a game enough to run on it. Playtonic is a small independent studi...

Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

I tried to warn everyone that it would be 2018 or later and no one believed me. I remember arguing about it with FangztheWolf and Scrubber and Piet among others. They forget that this game is 30fps even on the mighty PS4 Pro. They probably need to rebuild the whole game from the ground up in order t...

Re: When do you guys think the Nintendo Switch version will release?

Holiday 2017 if you are lucky. Don't kid yourselves, this is going to be near the bottom of their priority list, just like every other third party developer. As it should be.

Re: Poll for Switch Backers (Unofficial)

60fps at 720p on Switch? You are out of your mind.

You'll get 30fps with dips at 900p and like it.

Re: Will Yooka Laylee Show up in the Indie Switch Presentation on the 28th?

So it's not coming anytime soon (hello winter!) and looks like it has an absolutely atrocious framerate on Switch. Surprise surprise.

I don't want to say I told you so, but I told you so.

Re: PSA: Backerkit Surveys have been Reopened

Can somebody give me an email address to get in touch with playtonic directly, it's taking the piss now this. Money taken out of my account 10 days ago and nothing to show for it yet most others recieved thier codes on the day or the day after..... I don't think they have such an address. And they'...

Re: Will Yooka Laylee Show up in the Indie Switch Presentation on the 28th?

And also guys, don't act like the Wii U cancellation's entire purpose was to disadvantage Nintendo gamers just for the sake of it (and that they'll continue doing so). Mark my words and pillory me if I'm wrong (but I'm 99% certain I won't): All PG games after Yooka's release will come simultaneousl...

Re: Will Yooka Laylee Show up in the Indie Switch Presentation on the 28th?

It's about the people who backed for the game not about the rest of the console owners... :roll: Most console backers were Wii backers, so yeeeeeaaahhhhh..... Prio 1. ;) + It's a FACT that Nintendo backers got screwed over, so WE DESERVE compensation. Whether you like it or not. As I pointed out, t...

Re: Will Yooka Laylee Show up in the Indie Switch Presentation on the 28th?

I really think that they are busy with porting YL to the Switch and not with creating a new game atm. YL Switch version should be no.1 priority imho! There are over 50 million PS4 owners, about 20 million Xbone owners, and untold numbers of PC owners. There are 0 Switch owners right now and they ar...

Re: Will Yooka Laylee Show up in the Indie Switch Presentation on the 28th?

If snake pass can be ported so easily I don't know why yooka laylee won't be the same. I think nintendo fans will be pleasantly surprised. I cannot imagine playtonic releasing it a YEARS later for a different console. I would like to think they are deep into development of thier next game by this p...

Another 3D indie Platformer, Snake Pass, only took a week to port to the Switch: https://mynintendonews.com/2017/02/09/video-snake-pass-developer-states-that-the-game-took-only-one-week-to-port-to-nintendo-switch-shows-how-it-fairs-next-to-ps4-version/ Well I don't think they're they've lying, per ...

Re: Will Yooka Laylee Show up in the Indie Switch Presentation on the 28th?

I would be surprised if they showed it so soon. Miyamoto said that porting to Switch takes about a year, so it will probably be a winter title or 2018 on Switch.

Re: PSA: Backerkit Surveys have been Reopened

The game is gold, so there's no more polishing. It's on Team 17 to help them get it published and physical copies out to stores; maybe Team 17 is helping with the digital stores and codes too. Regardless, if other people received their codes multiple days ago, then Playtonic is making a mistake som...

The kickstarter was a donation yes. The extra £20 i have paid for the physical version that comes with an instant download of toybox is not a pre order. The toybox IS available and thousands of people are playing it. All playtonic had to do was send out emails with a code. I'm seeing people on twit...

Re: PSA: Backerkit Surveys have been Reopened

The toybox is developed. It's been released on all platforms that it'll be released on. The only thing Playtonic has to do is send out the batch emails from the backer kit. And that is no one's fault but Playtonic's to my understanding, unless Kickstarter itself acts as a gatekeeper. Judging by you...
