Anyone else hoping for Stop N Swop?

This feature alone will completely make any other game irrelevant!!! (Even though they already are!)

Not particularly Stop 'N' Swop, but I definitely want tons of ridiculously secret easter eggs hidden in the game, some of which may allude to mysterious things that are only fully revealed/understood in other Playtonic games. I.e. foreshadowing.

I would like to see SOMETHING LIKE Stop 'N Swop! :)

Oh hell yeah. I definitely want to find an equivalent to stopnswop eggs that come in use in the NEXT game.

100% want this.

How would it work, with today's tech? Wouldn't it have to have both games downloaded only?

Secrets all the way! Perhaps Yooka Laylee will finally show how its done after all these years. Put the rest to shame.

Thanks for the replies.

Hopefully not off topic, but I love it when sequels or other games from that company reward you for playing their older games.

I honestly don't know, but I wouldn't mind something like the Ice Key from Freezeezy Peak in this age of internet speculation.

I really loved Banjo Kazooie for the mystery surrounding Stop n' swop. Not to forget the devil bottles picture from Tooie.

I recently had a discussion over at Reddit about how a dev could still hide secrets in its' game without getting them data mined right away. I guess the conclusion was it's not worth the effort because it would take some sort of encryption or major obfuscation or garbage data in the code.

Still... I remember the promise of secrets that could take months to discover... wonder if Playtonic really has a ace up its sleeve or if they were false promises after all. Can't wait to see! I'll make sure to avoid the internet after release for a while!

Updates and DLC could actually come in handy here. The game can have something visual like that Ice Key without a clear function and also don't have code that gives the surprise away because it will be added later.
Of course I'm not a programmer so I wouldn't know if that's possible.
