Looks like Yooka's unused tiger design won't really go unused

Postby Operationgamer17 » Mon Mar 07, 2016 11:35 pm

Something I've noticed while looking at some artwork for the game. Look at the concept art for Yooka's design when he was a tiger.


Now look at the third silhouette in this image from the EGX Rezzed panel.


You can clearly see that they are one and the same due to doing the same pose. So it looks like Yooka's unused tiger design was retooled for a different character.

Glad they didn't go with him for the lead. Way too bulky.

It's difficult to say if they actually planned on using any of these characters. They likely didn't have a super large pool of concept work to pull from at the time.

Yes, I like Yooka (far) better, yes he's bulky but:
- DK was bulky / well-built

- Yooka and Laylee changed a lot from initial sketches. This tiger character probably would have looked quite interesting, had they continued to develop, then animate the design.

I really hope he will be an important character for playtonic. Would love to see a game with him in future ... maybe a 2d platformer ? Who knows ? :D
