All eyes are on Andy Robinson so to speak, and Grant Kirkhope seems to expect something rambunctious today. Whatever happens, this has been quite entertaining to watch.

I'd be stoked with just a dump of Toybox info and explaining what the hell Quack Corp and Hivory Towers are if they want to keep most of the game secret.
These tweets are killing me.

I do agree that the cryptic tweets could quickly become agonising (and boring), especially if nothing substantial is being said. Hivory Towers is just confirming they are rich and ruthless. Quack Corp is giving more away, but it's so cryptic that it could almost mean anything...

I would rather see something like the original jungle screenshot with Yooka and Laylee hiding in the bushes. Finding something hidden in pictures is awesome. Or even something like the mysterious face on the mountainside. I always look closely at all pictures Playtonic release, hoping to find something hidden in the background like a new character design on the desk, but there is never really anything there (yet).

With that said though, I don't want a massive reveal (even though I do). The final game should not be ruined. A few more screenshots, small segments of worlds, will be more than enough and will generate a good buzz -- Hivory Towers reference not intended.

P.S. Just read Grant's tweet. Seems really promising that something good is coming!

P.P.S. People keep adding new things every time I try to submit this post. If the update is just information (with no images) about Hivory Towers and Quack Corp, I am going to be so disappointed. Doubt it will be though -- that's not rambunctious enough.

Well if Kirkhope's talking then I'd say it's likely we'll at least get a music update.

So, shall we do some last minute predictions for today just for bragging rights?

My predictions for today:
- Toybox release imminent (maybe today, maybe revealed to release in at most 3 weeks time)
- The baddies will be revealed (with it, the basics of the storyline)
- New music
- Bit of gameplay gets shown off
- They won't "spoil" anything of the game, aka. they won't show us multiple worlds and they will not show us things like the full move-set or anything like that.

I kind of don't want the Toy Box released today simply because I'm still at uni and won't be able to play it. Yes, completely selfish. I've finished all my exams, but I was planning to stay another week or so; if it gets released though I'll be going home early!

Ironically, I seem to have forgotten how to read in all this excitement. Just. Taking. It. One. Word. At. A. Time. *clicks back to reveal page*
