Could I have a quick summary. This new licence law has really cut into my terrestrial viewing

Thanks Matt! Luckily Yooka Laylee is up first, so it's easy to jump to their section even with the livestream still going on. (About 10 minutes from the beginning.)

Edit: Though the applause intro was quite disappointing. Or the microphone is perfect for filtering out the audience.
Woaaaah, it finally came out! :o

Thanks for posting that! If anyone can't watch, there's lots of new things in that footage:
+ It seems there are collectibles that help extend your health and power meters.

+ Trowzer has multiple locations!

+ The plant transformation has a spray attack.

+ You can become invisible at will! (I didn't know this before)

Among other things.

Something big is potentially happening during tomorrow's livestream panel.

Big news? Let's not get our hopes up!

Steve Mayles said tweeted something about a bear costume. Probably just humour ... though I'm still waiting to see that "tea minion from sector 3" :lol:

That gameplay demo was awesome! It removed many doubts I still had and it truly seems the game is shaping up to feel like BK BT days. I got the hype back, I did lost some to be honest, perhaps because I could just not get that feeling back that I was longing for with the Toybox (which is obvious ofcourse but still)

Two slight things:

- the attack move we've experienced from the Toybox (just pressing attack) still lacks oomph. The impact of the hit needs a more impactful sound effect, the way it currently is it feels like an animation with a hitbox.

- the random floating metal platforms in the level feel awkward for a jungle, can't they be toadstools or something like that? Just saying :p

The toybox in general showed room for polish with interactive components like enemies, the boxes you push. It was a little weird in the demo when Andy made that bridge as the plant. Amusing, though! ...I just wonder if they'll find a way to make that appear less sketchy.

I was surprised by the light-up platforms. Don't *so* much mind the propellor pads, though; it is just not yet clear if/how they fit the theme.

Oh my gosh! They just announced that as an apology to all the backers who expected this game October 2016, they'll be releasing their beta of the game for free to all backers late next month, to help tide us over until the February 24th, 2017 release.
Woaaaah, it finally came out! :o
