I wasn't sure if I could think of a Platformer using licensed music. But I guess there's Rayman Legends

Those are covers though, as far as I remember. Then again, I don't think the first licenced music in a platformer would be that much of a special milestone. Especially since the artists I named are somewhat strange and underground. I really wonder how expensive those licenses would be. Those artists are exceptionally unuseful for actual soundtracks and background music. It only fits this game because it's really goofy.

I think it would be cool to have some one-time collectibles like the coin you get in DK64 for beating the arcade game. Maybe for doing something special you get a Playtonic logo plaque or something...

In Yooka's bedroom, if he even has one, he should an alarm clock that actually displays the system's correct clock. This clock is also a small dedication to Donkey Kong Country:


Heck, there can even be clocks in the overworld displaying the system's internal time, or how about a world dedicated to time, where clocks all around as you're finding stuff will display the system's internal clock?

So in this article:

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016- ... oka-laylee

Chris Sutherland said "We've always been fans of Shovel Knight,and thought it'd be great to have some guest star characters from the rest of the indie community. It's great for indies to be able to do that. There's no kind of big barrier, you don't have to go through seven levels of approval, you just go: yeah, we're going to do that."

Makes me wonder if there will be any other indie game characters... Shantae, maybe? ...Is it wrong that I want Sans from Undertale in this game? Or more guest characters at all? I'm fine with Shovel Knight, though.

I found this footage from EGX:

And I noticed two things. First, it looks like when you enter a new area, text pops up to tell you the name of the area (i.e. 'Duke's Temple' in the shooting gallery of Tribalstack Tropics), which is a really nice touch I liked from B-T.

Second, at some point Yooka shoots a minion with an ice ball and the minion reacts like he does for all other attacks- I think it would be really cool if enemies became frozen (like from ice eggs) or caught fire if you shoot fire at them.

Here's an idea.

PROMOTE YOUR FORUMS PLAYTONIC!!

It shouldn't be so dead in here so close to launch. Facebook, Twitter, Insta etc get them told.

No, the opposite. Shut the forums down XD

Who would want to promote a page where the top several non-sticky posts are complain-a-thons about their company?

We need to astroturf some happy stuff first!

If it's the case that the Switch version of Yooka-Laylee will be released a lot later than the other versions (which seems pretty likely), would it be possible for Playtonic (or the moderators if they have the authority) to create a "Switch Waiting Room" or "Switch Fans" (whatever you want to call it) area to the Board Index of this forum?
That way the people waiting for the Switch version who like coming here to talk about Yooka-Laylee but who don't want to see game spoilers can still visit after April 11th when everyone else will be playing and talking about exactly what's in the game.
