I hope they at least talk about the toybox, its getting very late in the early 2016. But 7 reveals is going to be awesome.

I expect them to talk about the seven reveals between the end of April, and the first or second week of May.

I suppose we can't just twiddle our thumbs... I just check Twitter each day and hope for serendipity.

Let the thumb twiddling begin... see you all tomorrow for the 17 days (including tomorrow) update.

There was a quick tweet mentioning that Phil Tossell (who worked as lead coder on Kameo and Starfox Adventures) is contributing to the project earlier today, but that's about it.

No not today, this month. That means the maximum timer is 18 days including today :p

Unless THAT was this month's small announcement. Which is possible I guess.

"Small update = Huge news!".

Whatever small update they give us this month, is gonna be quite significant news for all of us.

I think Phil Tossell's involvement was our news for the month. He's not joining the team, merely contributing.
To me hiring all the extra programmers makes good on their promise to use extra kickstarter money to make the game better.

Rueckkoppler -
Well, ha, Gamexplain is actually a viable source for information/analysis. The Kongversation exists in a world where DKC 2 is gamings Citizen Kane. Also: they do get off topic a ton and have an apparent prejudice against Mario titles.
Anyhoo, I'll probably 'swing' by roundabouts E3 time.

Haven't heard their thoughts on Playtonic but I can certainly see what you're saying. I'd imagine there would be some knee-jerk reactions to the "Rare v. Playtonic" fiasco (a bunch of knee-jerk reactions, in itself). I also could see it being a sort of Buzz Lightyear vs. Woody conflict, which how it felt for me, personally.

This Tweet from last Friday may be new to some of you
https://twitter.com/DeanWilsonArt/statu ... 2245861376

LOTS to talk about here:
1. "Final (Yooka-Laylee) art."
2. "Will show it at some point soon, I'm sure"
3. "Best get paining.." (i.e. final box art may be in the vein of Dean's prior concept art, vs. Mayles' digitally-rendered look seen previously...)
4. "Shiny Collectible," "NPC Linup," "main villain" ...have we seen this layout before??

I'm really looking forward to that art reveal! We might get a glance at the villain (finally).

The thing is... will the artwork be used for the game's box? And if they use it will they use a horizontal or vertical layout? (N64 games used the horizontal layout for reference)

What would you like to see people?
