It's a shame he isn't the monstrous beast I hoped for back in the Hivory Towers thread. Instead, he looks like a complete pushover. Still, there's a slight possibility that there are two main villains. If only that face carved in the mountain in this is from a far more imposing villain, (perhaps a warlock/wizard?) who resides there plotting an evil scheme what Capital B and his cronies could never achieve.
A cliche fairy tale setting would also have been nice for Yooka-Laylee. Though, that is only what adult people can understand who like to mix up the entertainment they watch/read/play once in a while. Fiction that's more grounded in reality like: Game of Thrones, the first four Silent Hill games, Stephen King's novels like The Shining, and especially American McGee's Alice - which covers the topic of the human psyche after experiencing a traumatic event, are in my opinion the cream of the crop. But some people are small-minded who scoff at the mere idea of watching things like Spongebob (Hempants).
Anyway, variety is the spice of life as the saying goes.
