Name the jungle world......

The first thing I thought of was Kramazon because Playtonic crams so much in the world! The k instead of the c was a DKC and DK 64 Kremling reference!

Floating Forest? Falling Forest? Flying Forest? I don't know -- those levitating islands seem interesting. Not sure if that's an element of the entire game, or just the jungle level.

Jingle Jungle? (Add loads of musical-themed and magical objects [to loosely reference Banjo], like flowers that have music radiating out of them, and enemies that sing etc.)

How about Topiary Stratosphere.

...Floaty Flora Forest? Alliteration isn't really my thing.

Alliteration is a must! Floaty Flora Forest is actually pretty nice too.

Maybe something along the lines of Jungle Jive if it has anything to do with music. Maybe also Floating Falls going of the waterfall in the background.
Maybe if it's later in the game Grown Groans could be a name to signify some amount of difficulty.

Jazz-cuzzi Jungle! Combining jazz music (DKC style courtesy of David Wise), water (big floating jacuzzi on the floating island with the falls), and jungle!

Hopefully these floating rocks/isles will only be in this world ... I enjoy such stuff in Super Mario games but not in a game like banjo kazooie. The other worlds should be unique and build up from scratch.

Although I think the two Ukulele screenshots look beautiful, I am a bit concerned that they (especially the jungle world) look a bit inorganic. It reminds me of Nuts & Bolts' Nutty Acres, which I really wasn't fond of.



It looks a little like plastic, if that makes sense. And the path, for example, doesn't blend its textures into the grass as we saw in the Banjo games -- the design is very 'clear-cut' and maybe a bit too sharp?

I will have to see how it looks in-game before I can make any real judgement though.

I trust the developers, they will dont disappoint us. I think the worlds are looking beautiful, the only things which bothers me are those floating blocks and the use of the same blocks in the hubworld ... but the game is in a work progress so I think thats some debug things and will change in future progress.
