I think Laylee looks pretty adorable. Big Rudolph nose and all.

I can see why some people think it's ugly, but I personally don't mind it. I think it looks silly in a good way xP

Laylee the red-nosed fruit bat
Had a very shiny nose...

I think it's okay. I've grown to like it. Initially, just like with the red minion face, I was surprised, but I've come to accept the red as a game aesthetic.

Maybe the nose serves a purpose. Glows in the dark? :roll:

I think it's cute and silly. I hope they make Laylee's mumbles nasally.

The big red nose fits extremely well, since many types of bats actually DO have really big and noticeable noses.

I would be lying if I said, that I didn't find the more mice-like bats cuter IRL, but for a video game character? I think it's just fine.

I agree with the sentiment that the nose could stand to be a bit smaller, mainly because it's hard for my brain to actually visualize it as a nose rather than as an ornament in the middle of Laylee's face.

I've grown quite attached to the nose. It's a flaw, but nobody's perfect. It also makes Laylee look funny and comical in a good way, like a clown. I really feel the characters should be an acrobat double act from a circus to explain their moves and appearance, not as part of a main story element, but a sort of backstory instead of just "leave your house".

It'd also explain their names. Yooka & Laylee has got to be a stage name. The amazing Yooka & Laylee.

When I saw Laylee for the first time, I had the same reaction of when I saw Lanky Kong for the first time. The red bump repulsed me like when I stare down a huge zit. But, now I guess I don't even notice it on Lanky and I can learn to love Laylee.

I honestly like it. I think it's a defining feature for the fruit bat, and it gives him a unique look. Human's are so quick to think something that doesn't look familiar or "normal" looks bad. Yeesh. Yea it doesn't look normal on a fruit bat, but that's why I love it! Haters gonna hate.

Look at this vampire bat.



Now tell me, is the nose still offputting?

It needs to be a bit smaller so that it actually looks like a nose cause at the minute is just wearing a clown nose.

No, not all Xbox owners are dudebros who love grey-and-brown PvP FPSes. Please feel free to quit stereotyping now.

Do you guys think Laylee will gain some fur through the development of the game? I mean he/she is the mammal, banjo had fur like textures in the CGI renders but not that much in game.

Kinda feel like they could take advantage of the HD and processing power to give the bat some fur to cover his naked self hahaha

I feel like basically everything in the game is very "smooth" right now, and that textures will be added as development goes along.
Make the forum great again.
