An art book would actually really interest me, especially if it contained beta concepts and designs they ended up scrapping.

I don't know the legailty on this (they made those soaps didnt they?)

But I'd like to see some sort of fake N64 cartridge with a custom Ukulele label on it for a lower level reward collectible.

I wonder if a signed exclusive picture of one of Ukulele's characters would draw in some funds at a cheap price on Playtonic's part. Doodle something, scribble your name on it and send it off to the lucky backer.

What about the promise of revealing "The truth behind Stop 'N' Swop" via a meetup or Skype session with the team. Again, very cheap for Playtonic to do, but might interest somebody...

I doubt it's possible, but releasing some beta doodles from their previous Rare games could interest someone. Probably a legal hurdle somewhere...

All the awards above would be almost instantly available, so that's an added bonus.

I would love some signed sketches and things like that. My walls can always use some more art. Ukulele art would go well with my Nintendo posters.

The good thing about rewards is that you can limit them to a certain number of backers, so Playtonic could easily offer, for example, a signed and exclusive look at a character or level design before anyone else. People might find that special and offer a lot of money (then try to sell it to the media :lol: ). It doesn't cost Playtonic much to share their doodles, so the profit is good here.

They could also offer a limited amount of people a shortish Skype chat in which they can discuss the development of the old games, secrets like Stop 'N' Swop and the upcoming project, scheduling the chats on a certain day as to fit them all in. People might pay good money just for their time.

I think Playtonic should really take advantage of their history and who they are: legends.

If I had a toooon of money to spend, I would love a reward where they fly me out to sunny England (;)) to play the new game with them. That might be more feasible for people in Europe than it is for a Canadian like me, though, so maybe they should consider it for locals! I would take my British friend with me and she could visit her family while I freak out and have a "YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH OF MY CHILDHOOD WAS SPENT WITH YOUR CREATION" moment.

My biggest want right now is still wonderful, colourful art though, be it posters or small little doodles or an artbook. Emphasis on colourful! I absolutely love colours and have always loved how bright the Banjo games were.

A collection of art was up there amongst the most requested rewards, so I'd be surprised if it doesn't appear as one. You'd have to wait for that though -- you couldn't get it until they've compiled the book with all the pieces, probably after the game's released. The delay might stop people wanting to invest, which is why I suggested the smaller 'instant' rewards.

'Tis a dilemma... :roll:

But no reason why you can't offer both.

So I'm not sure if it's been mentioned but hiding your real name somewhere in the game.

A thick manual (written in the same style as Leigh Loveday did) included in the physical copy of the game, would be really nice to have as a Kickstarter reward.
