I like how the entirety of Playtonic consists of that one office.

They seem to have triple checked that image, and left us another teaser.

In the second monitor there is another ghost, it's white and his name or ghost type starts with "STA"

STAN the ghost? Hahaha I'm happy with the new characters! Can't wait to see them in 3D!

I still don't fully get what these ghosties are or what they do but I LIKE EM! I guess these are the guys who created the worlds we'll be going into though.

Edit: Oh, some are speculating that these are the new and improved Jinjos :D that makes sense.
Make the forum great again.

Interesting backstory that these "Ghost Writers" wrote the books that make up the worlds in Yooka-Laylee. I bet that the main villain is the one responsible for their "suspicious demise", and being "cursed to endlessly wander their creations in search of spectre salvation".

I'm liking them already, but I can't wait to see what requirements will be needed to catch each of them.

The way that I am seeing this is that they each have different characteristics. The pink one looks frightened for example, so in order to catch it you need to sneak up on it. The blue one is a typical ghost so you may have to lead it towards light so that you can grab it etc.

Here's a thought: There are five writers, does that mean there are five worlds?

Wow, I love the design of those ghosts! And I really like the idea of each of them requiring you to do something different to collect it. I can already imagine some very cool puzzles coming out of that, I can't wait to see what's in store for us :D

I just looked again... Ghosts have a bit of a similarity with Rotom ^^

I'm now curious what the main villain will be!

I WOULD be happy, but now comes the "what gender are they" or "they need clothes" nonsense.

Why do the Ghost Writers remind me so much of the ghosts from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon?

Love 'em.

My first thought was that each world would have just one special ghost writer in it because the ghosts look like unique characters, whereas Jinjos look like a species. I.e. how can any of these ghosts be trapped in two places at once? I thought this also implies there are currently five worlds planned.

But I guess these are more likely to be 'Jinjos', all five appearing in each world. Especially as the colours match the original five Jinjo colours. Playtonic recently spoke about an audio-driven collectible, so I bet these are it.

They might wail for help and maybe even be invisible until located with a sonar beam (or just one of them, probably the blue one).
