I'm not sure if an indie studio releasing a game on three consoles and three computer systems would be able to implement interconnectivity features.

You hit the nail on the head with the "trying to do the impossible" attitude. A modern example where I still try to do that sometimes is Mario Kart 8. Though the scenery is so appealing, I know I won't actually get to explore it. But maybe, if I could somehow slip past Lakitu... There's actually a glitch in Mario Kart Wii's track Maple Treeway where if you fall off the track in a certain way, you can actually explore along the ground for a little. When I first heard of it, it blew my mind. It didn't have very good collision detection or anything, but it was amazing that it happened at all when I was used to the idea of everything off the track being off-limits. If they could inspire a kind of paradigm shift like that in Yooka-Laylee, that would be pretty great.

How does it work for Mass Effect?

For Witcher it seems that at the beginning of Witcher 3 you have a small part of the game dedicated to remake your choices from Witcher 2?

I don't play those games so I'm not sure.

I see. Well if it works for older games like this, there's no reason they couldn't do it with Yooka-Laylee if they wanted to right? I assume it's not cross-platform for Mass Effect, is it? I don't see how you could transfer your savefile from a console to PC, consoles are usually pretty locked up I believe.

The only downside I could see is that if there's no local backup option in addition to it then years down the line when the online service is shut down it'll be unusable.

You're right there. Synching the local game files with the online saves before each start could get rid of that problem though.
