Finally got my PS4 backer code. Time to download and let the nostalgia flow through me.

Happy to say the code has arrived and the game has been downloaded. So we were worried for nothing but ah well. :)

There is nothing like having a Steam Digital version of the game, and being in the UK, where Playtonic Games is based, and hearing of so many people who were fellow Kickstarter Backers, All being able to Download and/or play the game...

Well here in the UK, where Playtonic are... at 8:13pm the day before everyone who didn't pledge to the Kickstarter gets to play the game, Steam UK says "No you CAN'T Download and play the game"...

Hope everyone else is having fun, and not judging their experience based on what the reviews said...

Just spare a moment for all of us that weren't as lucky as you?

It truly is unfortunate to back this project for over 150 USD and not get the game on launch day. Basically I could've held out and just bought it tomorrow at GameStop and I would get to play it sooner than this.

I'm going to try not to let it ruin my experience. ...Some sort of time-frame would've been nice.

I would at least like to pre load it so I can actually be able to play it tomorrow. I don't have very good internet, so the chances of me being able to play it tomorrow are some-what slim.
Yooka-Laylee should be its own game with its own feeling. It shouldn't try to be like Banjo-Kazooie, it shouldn't try to be like Donkey Kong, it should be like Yooka-Laylee.

Haven't got my physical PS4 version here in Australia yet, which sucks because it's officially out now in shops :/

Isn't that Valve's fault?

Any word yet if US backers have gotten their physical copies? It didn't arrive on release date here in California.

I'm in Washington, so I'll probably be one of the last people to get the game. I have the Digital Deluxe Boxset download codes, but I'm gonna give those to a friend, so the wait is even harder.

A friend of mine who is currently in Texas just received their physical copy. So hopefully it won't be much longer now.

Also, I've just checked my backer kit today and it now says "Shipped" and "Rewards are shipped" under Status. Scrolling the cursor over the "Rewards are shipped" brings up a message that says it was shipped on the 12th.
