Re: Running out of Stretch Goals, let's make new ones

Now that I think back, I remember some discussion that a chao garden-like mechanic would be much appreciated. So, yeah. I'd like a stretch goal for that. Some sort of pet garden area, where you can level up and feed your animal/friendly monster to increase their skills in an optional series of mini ...

Re: Splatoon Nintendo Direct - coming 7th May

I really hope this sells well. I feel like Nintendo will be turned off from New IPs for quite a while if this tanks alongside Codename S.T.E.A.M. Plus, the singleplayer convinced me that they're giving it their all, and focusing on incorporating that smart nintendo game design wherever they can. Not...

Re: Yooka needs some clothes

About having an iconic feature for transformations, I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Yooka's tail yet! Maybe all transformations could still have that iconic chameleon tail. I imagine that'd look kinda cute, even xD I don't see that working with more oddball transformations, like the washing mach...

Re: What kind of an audience of gamers is here? Tell me about yourself.

Some pretty good taste in games here! My first games were Tetris Attack, Donkey Kong Country and Super Mario World all at once (what a childhood!) As for my top games, I've only ever been able to bring it down to 10, although I can't rank them for the life of me. All I know is that EarthBound is num...

Re: What next game would you want ?

I don't think there are many better examples of their incredible skill in level design than the DKC games. Another 2D platformer with all those stage-specific gimmicks, loads of secrets, all those charming characters, idle animations, and excellent music would be swell. If not that, I'd have to be s...

Re: Play Tonics

Aah, the (musical) bit is rather significant, isn't it? You're right, I think you're right on the money with the the tonics. I wonder whether there might be optional inaccessible areas until you gain enough upgrades for, say, flight distance. Perhaps you can't run through some sort of trap until you...

Re: Play Tonics

^I think they were talking about collectibles in general, and not specifically about those coins. Why not just make a simple gold coin if that were the case? Seems pretty obvious to me that you collect those playtonic coins (notice the blue triangles on the coins, and the blue triangles in the playt...

Re: Found an edited image of the character design, really improves a lot IMO

In terms of physical alterations, I think either OP's or Iggy's edits are absolutely perfect. I think I lean more towards iggy's nose in concept, but either would have me overjoyed. The mouth and the neck really did wonders for Yooka too. As for the clothes, I could accept it, but they wouldn't be m...

Re: New DK rap for this game!

I don't want to pretend like I know the new characters, but for some reason I don't see a DK-style rap track working as well with Yooka and Laylee as it did with the crew. But I never would have guessed that the DK rap would have turned out as well as it did, so I guess I'll just place my trust in G...

http://i.imgur.com/uHqC0an.jpg I made this quick (and very badly done) idea of a vest, just for easy visualization. I think a brown vest with some sort of necklace would be really fitting. Needs more pockets maybe? I like the idea of that open vest, out-back sort of look. I think the brown works we...

Re: Yooka needs some clothes

I'm on the fence about it. I like how they look now, and I like that fan art with the Hawaiian shirt and belt. Can you get me a link to that? I just said it, because I think an open Hawaiian shirt would really fit Yooka... Also, why have a belt when you have no pants? http://i.imgur.com/Hh5SjcZ.png...

Re: What have YOU pledged? POLL

I got the PC Boxed Deluxe set, and I'm ecstatic. I just have to have a physical copy. Digital doesn't do it for me. I am a bit sad at missing my shot for an N64 cart though. :( I was ready to throw $300 at it, but $515 is rather excessive for me. If I could time travel and find out that Yooka-Laylee...

Re: Running out of Stretch Goals, let's make new ones

-More worlds. Maybe make one a callback to CCW and give it the 4 seasons treatment with a different layout -Mod support -Unlockable clothes or accessories. For extra fun, make the player earn it by trading a super rare item. Alternatively, if the game's worlds are heavily themed (western, pirate, et...

Re: Only 5 Worlds in the game?

It seems the main concern when it comes to the number 5 is the lack of thematic variation. A simple way to fix this without having to design enormous expanding worlds for each unique theme is to have each world represent some sort of overarching theme, with many variations within the worlds as you e...

Re: Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter successfully funded including all stretch goals...in less than a bloody day!!!

I'm assuming he's referring to what Chris talked about in the interview. Mainly that modern games usually aren't as colorful as what Rare is best known for. If you were to see a modern exploration-based game, you'd never see anything like googly eyes, which can likely be tracked down to the boom of ...
