Really liked the insight on game design when the graphics can be very detailed.
Still no date for the Switch, sadly.

I liked this new tidbit:

GR: What other fun combination of names did you consider for the game?

AR: The idea that we could phoneticise Ukulele stuck very early on, and from there it was a process of finding two words that sounded right. At one point it was 'Yoku-Laylee' as a Hawaiian dictionary revealed that Yoku means, 'to eat bugs' and Laylee means, 'to fly', which was pretty convenient! But ultimately Yooka sounded better. My proposal for 'Yookalay-Lee' was swiftly rejected.

The good ol' days: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=152
Is it weird to feel some kind of forum nostalgia right now?
