Possibly new character?

Postby Yavga » Sat May 23, 2015 10:36 am

While skimming through all the interviews once more I noticed this Ostrich/bird like character on the left screen in some 3d editing program (seems like it). As I could not place it in any game to date I thought it might as well be a possible new character?

It's very unclear though.

Looks like a very small bird with a very large head and very tall hair. Looks cute.

I think that chair might end up playing a major role to.

The chair is the main villain. His main attack is moving out of the way when somebody tries to sit down.

Yeah, I thought so too at first glance, but then the neck doesn't make sense, it's too thin.

Just focus on the grey blob and compare it with yooka's head.

We talking about blob shadows now XD?

No I can see the designs are similar, but then there's Laylee's head. There's something of a red line on it.

It could be animation and they're trying to make sure there's no clipping. Maybe the weird neck could just be a place holder while they do head movements.

It looks like an untextured Yooka & Laylee to me. The "neck" is probably just Laylee's limbs gripping onto Yooka. I'm not a developer at PlayTonic, so I don't know for certain. Is anyone over there able to confirm?

...or perhaps will some new minor NPC arise out of this digital serendipity?

Definitely just Yooka and Laylee. In fact, that is all that I can see. I do not know where anyone else is seeing anything thing else. With the angle, the slight glare, and them possibly being mid-animation, it probably makes them look like something else. However, you can clearly see that Yooka and Laylee's models are differentiated by different colors, with Yooka being grayish blue and Laylee being pinkish purple. I do not think that a model for a single character would happen to appear this way.

I don't really feel like pulling up the image in paint just to point out every part that confirms that it is just Yooka and Laylee...

Yeah, you're probably right. I can now see the bats ears more clearly. Well, it was nice speculating for a while ^^

That's clearly Yooka and Laylee. When you zoom in you can see the fins on Yooka's head, and his eye.
Make the forum great again.

I wonder how the coop mode will work ... maybe there will be another duo of characters for the second player. Maybe this one on the screen ?

Definitely Yooka and Laylee.
But apart from that, every shot from Playtonics office we got so far with computer-screens showing what their working on was basically just of things we already know of (i.e. the worlds, the characters, the minions, etc., not counting things such as moves or idle animations), but I remember there was this one photo or video from the office that had Chris and some other employee on it, talking about something he was doing on the computer screen, but the screen itself was pixelated aka censored.
So I guess they are very picky when it comes to leaking informations, I don't think something like this would've slipped their mind just now. :P
