Re: Toybox(++)

They just hired a sound guy so it may be some time until they have that aspect hammered out. Given that these are all seasoned professionals I'm not worried. Thier many years of experience and excellence has taught them how to design games effectively and efficiently. And they have set a high standa...

Re: Could Yooka-Laylee finally beat Donkey Kong 64's record (please)?

I don't think you realize what that would look like. The only way DK 64 justified so many was the different characters. Since YL only has the duo, it would not make sense to have all this hundreds of things in one stage

Re: New Music Revealed

Rextro is associated with all the games' arcades, not just world 1. Plus the fact he's a Dinosaur references his dated look. Not sure we can infer Dino-world. Anyways the Kickstarter area being scrapped could more simply be attributed to its status as a proof of concept, rather than a notion of the ...

Re: New Character revealed: Rextro SixtyFourus

I'll second the point:
It's reasonable to guess that Play Tokens are specific to unlocking arcade machines, rather than being a note equivalent

Re: New Music Revealed

Wouldn't the music in the book room be a jungle variation of the Hub theme? 2. Sounds slower and a bit grand/majestic. Perhaps some unknown indoor area / residence. Maybe a Temple (which we saw in very basic form with the Kicksterter area) 3. The third sound more lively/exciting from the first three...

Re: New Character revealed: Rextro SixtyFourus

Very fond of this one and the character specific scan line effect

Re: Should Playtonic only make platformering games?

I think Taylor puts it best.

Yes, we are all a bit starved for 3D platforming games. Yet, honestly, if Playtonic continues making the games they are passionate about, everybody wins!

Re: NEWS! New things for your eyes!

Oh, I see. While the concept art does seem to show floating islands, we obviously don't know if the worlds themselves will float like the Kickstarter area (i.e. like, say, most levels in Mario 64). I agree natural borders are nice. A more organic choice. Maybe a lack of borders could be chalked up t...

Re: NEWS! New things for your eyes!

I suppose it's pretty uncommon to see a game in such an early stage as we have with Yooka Laylee. About the floating islands -- a few can be seen in the new concept art. The thing with Mario Galaxy and 3DWorld is that their beautiful environments were all small, linear, and platform based. The game ...

Re: Arcade Machine games: what do YOU want to see?

No strong preferences here but I personally envision simple, standalone ideas. Probably nothing too elaborate?

Re: Playtonic will be at EGX this friday

Well we've seen the art on that print before, but not in such detail. I'd say it's showing us the equivalent of Spiral Mountain / Gruntildas Lair exterior. The lighting is awesome and Y-L themselves have never looked so amiibo-ready.

Re: So, the Toybox/Toybox++

The article in question was basically a background type piece. Yes, it did feature a NPC sketch and it's absolutely understandable to want to see it ... but this is very minor Easter-egg calibre content. With all due respect, making such inferences about DLC is preposterous. Really, while a few Kick...

Re: So, the Toybox/Toybox++

Our Toybox experiences are designed to deliver hands on time with Yooka and Laylee before the game comes out. You can be the first to take our heroic duo for a spin (literally, if you press X) but we promise this self-contained plaything won't spoil the full game: It's built from in-game assets arr...
