Re: Yooka Laylee playable at EGX 2016!

I really hope someone who posts here can make it! I'd like to see more of Tribalstack Tropics. In the recent Eurogamer video they mentioned they collected a lot of pagies in their version of the demo, maybe we can actually see it happen. I wonder if we'll see any indoor areas... The developer interv...

Re: Toybox feedback & discussion thread (SPOILERS)

- I liked the enemy designs and sounds, but the way they "morphed" in size and shape depending on their animation looks really weird. In particular, they get quite visibly "squished" when they are cowering in fear which looks super strange. It looked like some sort of error with...

Re: Poll: What do you want to see more of?

I've said before that I'd rather not see any more worlds, characters, and transformations, but I'd really like to see an update on some of the stretch goals. I'd really like some sort of confirmation that the music is still going to be orchestrated, and I'm still very curious about the "N64 sha...

Re: NEW TRAILER - Gamescom 2016

I thought the one that lights up green and levitates upwards felt a bit out of place. It felt too... futuristic(?)... for Tribalstack Tropics. I think it's possible that certain assets/objects are intentionally used in multiple worlds. You can see these red/green platforms in the parts of (presumab...

Re: Swamp Level - Confirmed?

I think you all are on to something here. I think you can hear insects/critter noises in the background as Yooka and Laylee pass this area in the trailer- that makes me think there's a change in the music/sound effects, like how the music changes as you approach the level entrances in Banjo. So I'd ...

Re: Poll: What do you want to see more of?

I'm curious who the boss is in Tribalstack Tropics. Is it Nimbo the big cloud? If it is, how do you fight him? Kinda want to find out, but also want to be spoiler-free -- dilemma! I think it's either Nimbo or someone we haven't seen yet. I have a feeling the fellow on the ramp is a mini-boss, and m...

Re: Voice mumbling on transformations

I agree with Taylor. I always liked how it was done in Banjo- each character still had their icon and voice while transformed. It made me think that they actually speak like normal and that the NPCs were just too stupid to recognize two voices from one character, which still makes me laugh.

Re: NEW TRAILER - Gamescom 2016

This is a dumb thing I noticed, but since they're in the final stages I might as well bring it up: When Yooka and Laylee meet Scoffsalot, they're in a dark area and a spotlight shines on him. It reminds me of something that might happen in Nuts and Bolts, because it makes the situation look like a p...

Re: Toybox feedback & discussion thread (SPOILERS)

I get the feeling that some of the moves might feel a little strange in order to make certain moves that aren't in the Toyboxes possible. For instance, we know there are underwater enemies, so maybe the swimming mechanic allows for easier attacking or something. Also, I think the Reptile Roll uses t...

Re: Toybox feedback & discussion thread (SPOILERS)

I guess I can see the benefits of the current swimming mechanic (I'm assuming it's so altitude and the direction you face are independent), but I don't think it's better than the one from Banjo-Tooie, which is more intuitive in my opinion. That, and the diffraction underwater is a little jarring bec...

Re: Mystery of the Discord, leaks.

Yeah, I've seen most of their "riddles" on the Discord server, and the only ones that aren't impossibly vague have been what I think are references to stuff anyone can know. I remember one that seemed pretty clearly to be about Nimbo affecting the environment.

Re: Your first look at the Toy box!

The underwater diffraction issue is the only aesthetic choice I haven't completely liked so far. It's not like that in the official trailer though, so it may be that the Toybox footage is old. That being said, I can't wait to play this...

Re: Interiors: Dr Puzz/Trowzer Building?

As much as I'd like houses or whatever for the characters, Puzz's area has been growing on me. I was thinking that, since she seems unsure of herself, maybe the transformation method gets more complicated with each level as she gains confidence. Maybe it starts off as a beam in the first level and s...
