Quirky Playtonic logo intro?

One of the nicest hallmarks of Rare's golden age was the interesting and fun ways they'd introduce the logos when you switch on your game. Here's a video of the best ones:

The N-Cube logo of the N64 crawling across the screen when you switch on BK, the spinning Nintendo lozenge for GoldenEye - utterly iconic.

I'm wondering if Playtonic will do something similar with its logo when you start Yooka-Laylee?

I really hope so. Sega did a lot with the Megadrive. Thought it was a nice touch.

I hope they will animate something with the logo, it's so iconic to Rare to have an icon animation of 5~ seconds.
It is nothing big, but when you start the game and already get totally sold through music or the animation, that PlaytonicGames made that game then yes, you totally did it right.

Everytime I see the old Rarewarelogo animation and hear a bit of the tune, I always remember my childhood.
I wish at the actual games of Rare, I get this feeling again :cry:

Oh yes, PLEASE! That was the first sign that this game's going to be cool :D They should totally do that. It would be even better when they let some characters interact with it (The dragonfly smashing against it in B-K or Conker ripping it apart with his chainsaw)!

The logo introduction in some Rare games were the most memorable so I really hope they'll do something like that for this one. It could be a beaker fizzing some triangle and a character drinking it or an unstable monolith falling down and crushing a bunch of Keiths. Anyway whatever the intro will be, I hope it'll be funny and creative =)

I'm actually really excited to see what the entire game intro will be.

P.S. That Paper YL signature is sweet

Whatever the animation is, I hope it's accompanied by a bubbly bloop sound effect.

It would be a nice addition to have a quirky Playtonic logo intro not only in Yooka-Laylee, but also for their future games.

I can imagine a type of short sketch, similar to the , where a Keith (or a bunch of Keiths) are looking at a vial of Playtonic juice and trying to get their hands on it, but something funny prevents them and the vial survives untouched.

A couple of ideas sprung to my mind while reading this thread. Mebbe I could put them in animatic format some time...

Why was the battletoads one included it's well crap and WHY is it called battle MANIACS? Should have included the nutsnbolts one too that intro is cool.

I look forward to playtonics logo Intro.

Do you really fear the game won't have an iconic intro? I don't. :D

There surely are many things they could so with such a unique logo! I look forward to seeing what they pull off.
