IMO, they should put 10 worlds in the game, plus a special Bonus World.*

You know what they say...

The more, the merrier. And quite frankly, more fun.

Each world with their different and respective themes. Like in BK/BT.

*Now, as for the Bonus World, in a case where they implement a similar system to the Stop N' Swop, (in a post here, I said that they should include items: nine similar items, plus a final item) they should make this world last greatly. I was thinking that once they gather all the items, and the door or "poster-portal" opens, the passage way should be something similar to the Victory Road from the Pokemon series, all the way to the final stage/level.

What do you guys think?

As long as the worlds are very different from one another (like for example not 2 worlds that are similar in structure or atmosphere...or scenery) and very big, I'm fine with 6 worlds honestly.

It's a vague 6 or above. They've raised a bunch of money, I'd expect them to go for the high end and put in around 8 worlds give or take.

Meh I trust they know what they're doing. Someone brought up an interesting idea that the five worlds might have multiple themes in them. For example, the jungle world when expanded could reaveal a new area that is Aztec themed. Or you have a heavily forested world similar to fungi forest or click clock woods that expands into a haunted forest section with a mad monster mansion-like level at it's center.
call it dynamic world theming

If there's 5 worlds that are expandable, the different areas should have some differences. You may have an overall Jungle area or Snow area but they can have different themes like Deep Jungle, Jungle Canopy, Rivermouth... and Arctic Pole, Frozen City, Mountain top, ... respectively. Enough variation such that it doesn't feel like the same area although it has the same theme.

Hire a few more people for the core team so more work gets done and contract Iron Galaxy (Or whoever) for the console versions nice and early so they're day and date.

Some stretch goals added bosses, transformations, modes, etc etc etc. Goes without saying that a Just Funded Yooka-Laylee (without any stretch goals met) has fewer worlds than one where they have millions of dollars of bank to throw around to double their environmental artist staff (To two). I mean I don't know how many people they can get in house without losing the small team feel (a dozen? 15?) but they can probably afford a handful of salaries they couldn't before.

Is there a chance that 10 could be too much? Like how some gamers say they should have done less. I'm fine with whatever really.

I loved the bonus parts in the Spyro games, something like that would be cool.

DK64 had 7 ridiculously big worlds, Tooie had 8 reasonably big worlds, Kazooie had 9 relatively tight worlds. I'd expect somewhere between Tooie and Kazooie. 10 would be absurd.

I'm not worried about this, partly because it's phrased as "at least five worlds" (so there will be at the very least six).
The other reason I'm not worried is that in the FAQ on Kickstarter regarding how expensive the game is to make, they say "Yooka-Laylee will provide more content than BK, but cost less to make and cost fans less to buy too!"

That's perfect. :D
