Should the Toy-Box be made available to all ks backers?

Discussion and feedback for Playtonic's debut game, platformer adventure game Yooka-Laylee!

Should the toybox now be made available to everybody?

Yes, it is unfair to give newbies access but leave out the kickstarter backers

No, I pledged exclusively for the toybox tier, why should every1 get it for free

Should the Toy-Box be made available to all ks backers?

So as many of you are aware with the new update, people that cared less to even support the kick starter can now simply preorder the game and get instant access to the toybox. I find this incredibly unfair!
The most dedicated Banjo/Rare/DK fans including myself gave our hard earned money to fund this project from the very beginning and have shown nothing but support ever since. Yet we are left with nothing for the time being.
People, however, who may have only just found out about Yooka-Laylee, can simply preorder the game and get instant access to the toybox that some of us would love to get our hands on.

What are YOUR opinions on this?

yeah open it up. I pledged for the toybox and got auto upgraded to the plus with the update the other day, so I'm all for other backers who didn't pledge for it getting a taste now.

Everyone who's preordered the game gets the Toybox, it only makes sense that people who kickstarted the game and are getting a copy should also get it.

At the very least, people who are getting the Steam version should have their codes sent out so that they can activate it and get access.

I may have paid for the Toybox+, but I got to play it way ahead of everyone who is preordering now. Anyone that backed the game should get the opportunity to try it at this point, IMO. At the very least let them try the Toybox-non-plus Edition.

Yes and no.

I think if people backed enough for the game tiers they should get the Toybox/+ now.

But maybe not people who backed less than that, because that would be so much time Playtonic would have to waste to organise Steam codes for people who pledged, say £1.

Absolutely yes. Been out forever now, let everyone try it out. Hell, if a Wii U one exists, let that be playable too!

Yes, we had our fun, we've had our privilige. Time to give others the experience. Game can be pirated anyway so it would only be a formality to not do it anyway.

I say yes. But only because it's available for pre order. If there was no announcement then no toybox.

I got it because I backed at a high enough tier. Changing exclusive backer rights really gets to me.

I wish somebody official would comment on this. I feel like I've been pushed to the back of the queue.

At this point I would have more if I never backed the kick starter, than I do as a backer...

The toybox should come to all platforms, including Wii U - else how will Switch backers get to enjoy the toybox?
Woaaaah, it finally came out! :o
