Can Yooka-Laylee celebrate your birthday?

Postby TheWolfBunny » Sun Sep 18, 2016 7:48 pm

OK, so let's say that you've just started the game on your birthday. But before you are sent to the intro/title screen, you get a special "Happy Birthday!" animation. But how do you think that should work?
Suggesting ideas to make Yooka-Laylee a little more enjoyable can really extend the fun that the game will have to offer.

Many would never know, but those few who happen to boot the game up on their birthday would be in for a nice surprise!

I'd be cool with an edited opening sequence or file save select thing where a birthday (cup)cake is present. Maybe having Yooka/Laylee interact with it, with a little dialogue like:

Yooka: Hey Laylee, did you bake this?
Laylee: No, who's is that?
Yooka: I dunno. It's not your birthday is it?
Laylee: No, and it's not yours either.
Yooka: Well, Happy Birthday whoever you are!
Laylee: Lemme have a bite!
(Yooka brings the cake to Laylee)
(Laylee eats the entire thing in one bite)
Yooka: Laylee!
Laylee: That was good!
Woaaaah, it finally came out! :o

I'm not sure how they would get this information on all consoles without prompting the user to input it manually, which would defeat the purpose of a surprise.

However, loads and loads of easter eggs in general will definitely be appreciated -- more the merrier.

This does sound nice. It may be difficult with a physical PC release, unless it prompts something about connecting through to Steam like some physical PC games have from time to time.

Good idea. On paper.
