A Reminder About the Delay

If the delay never happened, we could have been playing Yooka-Laylee by now. I very much doubt it would've released on a Sat/Sunday, nor on Halloween.

While it is a bit disappointing, I'm glad they Playtonic decided to give it a few more months for some added polish. I want to see the game polished to a mirror sheen. Not something that needs to be patched one, or multiple, times. :P

I've been thinking about this too. I'm not upset, though. I can't complain that they want to spend a few extra months to make the game better.

It's pretty unfortunate for them that it releases at the same time as the Switch, especially if Mario is a launch game.

On the bright side, look how CLOSE WE ARE :D to the release compared to the beginning of the Kickstarter! Or even better, look how close we are to the release compared to when Banjo Tooie came out o_o

Different reminder about how janky and unpolished some of the animations looked in those trailers. I'm happy to wait an extra couple of months for a more polished experience

I think those things aren't that bad. It's still an indie game.

It's not as if the October 2016 release date was even remotely realistic (without the game being riddled with bugs and glitches that is) when the Kickstarter campaign of Yooka-Laylee blew through its initial funding goal and stretch goals within twenty-one hours after it went live. I'm glad that Playtonic Games is taking their time in polishing Y-L to the nth degree, instead of rushing the game out of the door as fast as possible which wouldn't have been a good decision on their part.

October 2016 was very realistic. They simply expanded the scope and depth of the game with the funding. But ya know what? Who doesn't want that? Let's have another delay. October 2017 would give a lot of time to really polish the game and make it the best it could be, right? Hmm, on second thought, maybe March 2018 is better. Don't want to put any pressure on them and let them work on the finest details, to really make this a 10/10 game. :roll: :lol:

Yes, if the Kickstarter campaign only had reached the initial funding goal of £175,000, or if Playtonic had decided to release the game in a buggy state. But that didn't happen now is it? :lol:

Oh, and one delay is more than enough. We don't want you to be upset if Playtonic announces that Y-L would be delayed again, right? ;)

I'm sure we funded the campaign enough that they can cram in a few more worlds and Switch support. March is going to be busy anyway with the Switch releasing and all, Zelda being released... Not the best time for Playtonic to gain momentum imo really... Spotlights and online news will mostly cover other things and take their much needed spotlight as an indie dev bound to become big once again!
