So now that I'm nearing the end of my second playthrough of Yooka-Laylee I'm beginning to wonder what the Story cold be for the sequel and I wanted to open the floor to some interesting story ideas that you think COULD happen or what you would like to see happen. One of the things that I felt were somewhat lacking in Yooka-Laylee was a sense of investment in defeating Capital B I feel that the game failed to properly set up what was at stake should the duo fail to Stop Capital B from acquiring all the pagies. Sure, they mention what could happen but we never get to SEE it, it more of the prospective of SHOWING not TELLING.
So for the sequel i would suggest having the book taken from them by the next baddy, someone more powerful and menacing than capital B, seeing as how they reveal Capital B is actually an underling. Maybe the new threat frees Capital B only to enslave him as an underling. Perhaps this new villain from V.I.L.E has magical powers (not saying a witch or wizard) maybe he or she is supernatural in nature and sports a ghostly or otherworldly (like an Egyptian god) presence. They forcefully snatch the book from the two and begin rewriting all of reality, destroying the duo's home and slowly blinking their friends out of existence. Something or someone intervenes and stops the erasure from finishing. But Yooka and Laylee might be separated or are displaced somewhere and everything and everyone they know has either changed according to the rewrite or have simply ceased to exist. Also as a result from the rewrite the duo lost some of their abilities, and lament not taking the insurance that Trowser offered them in the previous game. Meanwhile because of the timely intervention that stopped the erasure the one book exploded sending the Pagies flying off to other worlds again for our heroes to find. Its now up to the two to recover the pagies and undo the damage done by this new threat!!!!
That would be my Ideal story hook. To me it adds much needed danger and weight to the adventure and makes the story more dark.
How about your ideas?
