Delightful Details

Postby ShanPen » Sat Jan 27, 2018 5:25 am

Since so much work goes into all the aspects of creating a game, I thought I'd start a topic where we can marvel at any small details found in the game that you thought were amusing and deserve to be pointed out so that other fans of the game who might have missed them can appreciate them too, and to show Playtonic that we appreciate the little things they've put into the game.

It could be something visual, a sound effect, or even a funny character or place name (such as "Dr. Puzz" sounding like "Octopus" when you say it fast) - whatever you'd like to share.

Here are some visual ones I have to share with screenshots.

The King on the card showing out of the top of the card deck enemies is Capital B! :o


The hieroglyphs around the walls of Capital Cashino repeatedly spell "PLAYTONYC [sic] GAMES YOOKA LAYLEE" (someone in the team needs to go back to Gobi's Valley to brush up on their hieroglyphics! :lol:).


The carpet pattern contains the conical flask and triangle shapes from the Playtonic Games logo.


Amusing book title "How to use hexagons in all your home decorating!". Capital B certainly read that book thoroughly when designing his lair!


Amusing book title "50 Shaders of Games". :lol: I haven't found this book anywhere else in the game yet.


The "Slippy Edition" of the book "The Slide From The Top" because the book is angled to form a slide.


A matching "Step Edition" called "To The Top! How I Stepped Up!" when the books form stairs.


The special "Domino Edition". ;)


Poor discarded "Vice-Prezedent" Dr. Quack statue abandoned in a lonely corner of the Hivory Towers Lair.


Love the "Pants and why you should wear them" brochure taking a light-hearted stab at the people who complained that Yooka needed pants when the title characters were first revealed.


Some helpful tips on the back of the multi-coloured paint tin, such as "Do not paint your cat" and "Do not apply to butt". :lol:

Please post anything amusing you have noticed, as I'd love to see what other fans have found!

A few more:

The Playtonic Games logo on one side of treasure coins, and Capital B's face on the other side.


The island where the pigs and Shovel Knight are searching for pirate treasure is shaped like a skull and crossbones.


Capital B's prestigious top office floor is denoted by a dollar sign on the elevator sign.


Dr. Quack has turned the service lift/dumbwaiter on the side of Hivory Towers into his own personal lift, complete with dodgy little ramp.


Trust the Playtonic team to come up with the character of a mooning moon called "Moonie". :lol:

Graffiti on the "Bat Ship Crazy" - "BATS R COOL", "YOOKA WOZ ERE", and the mysterious "Penny" (underneath a picture of a heart with an arrow through it).

(The same image with the colour settings altered so the graffiti stands out more).



EDIT: Went back to the area and found some more graffiti names, "Evie" and "Erin".

(Same image with colour editing for clarity).



Also on the topic of mysterious graffiti, this shows up out the front of, and inside, the space level.

The initials of the heading spell "TWIT". Also the lack of a possessive apostrophe in "Trowzers" makes it feel even more authentic that he's a dodgy salesman who can't even get the grammar in his advertising sign right.


Anyone know why there's a Laylee face constellation, but not a Yooka one? (Or has anyone found a Yooka one in another level?).

In the new developer commentary video for Tribalstack Tropics, Hamish mentions he added the initials T.C. (to celebrate his brother's engagement) under the ramp leading up to the Great Rampo. Is anyone who has found those initials able to describe exactly where they are or post a screenshot? As I tried to find them but had no luck.
