I think the idea of changing partners sounds cool. It even looks pretty nice.
But...

The whole Kickstarter presentation is 1:1 Yooka Laylees. They´re saiying, it´s inspired, but...no.
Just take the Yooka Laylee presentation, changing colors and some word´s is not an inspiration at all.

The game itself looks and sounds pretty cool, but there is a bad taste to it, when i´m on their Kickstarter Page. I mean, come on guys! Even the reward and "where goes the money" thing looks like a bootleg. :S

There is even a "playhouse demo reward"...

But enogh rant, to be honest, i will have an eye on this, because it do looks like fun to me. :)

It seems Grant Kirkhope was signed to do the music, but he then declined...

Wow, you´re right he isn´t even anymore in the Kickstarter listed.
Well, that´s a thing. xD

I don´t know. But i guess, it was the right choice for Grant, even if it´s bad for Kewpie-Jazzy.

Something feels really off about this whole project, but maybe it´s just me.

Yeah I just discovered this myself... Sounded interesting at first, but I got more and more grossed out the further I looked into it.

I'm all for more 3D platformers on the market. But this one makes little to no attempt to hide the fact that it is nothing but a tasteless rip-off of Yooka-Laylee/Banjo-Kazooie. Not to mention the dev team just seems... sketchy. They've been called out numerous times on Twitter but respond with, "how can we be a rip-off of a rip-off?" The difference is that the Yooka-Laylee dev team is actually composed of many of the SAME developers who worked on BK and BT. So it's less ripping-off and more taking back what was theirs in the beginning.

The Kewpie-Jazzy team is younger, inexperienced, and moreso blatantly copying Yooka-Laylee and Banjo-Kazooie than merely taking inspiration from it.

On twitter I pointed out how those rocks (seen in a screenshot in an above post) seem to be suspended in midair by vines.
They responded "the rocks are part of the vines"

What does that mean???

Definitley found the KS campaign off-putting for reasons similar to what "Little Green" points out.

The team does seem rather young! There's something promising somewhere in this project but for now it looks cheap and knock-offy

Definitely a ripoff and I'm not gonna back it but I definitely feel sorry from them after lurking some in the (now offline) discord room they set up. Lots of people really railing on them, some justified but a lot just people being angry and mean.

It looks HIDEOUS! :shock:
And does anyone else find it insanely creepy that the cat has human female boobs? :?

Yeah, this is just bizarre. I'm sure it's a scam, and a poorly done one at that. If it were their dream project, they picked an awfully convenient time to unveil it. Some of the models/assets really clash aesthetically; it's almost like everything aside from the main character models are stock/pre-made...I wouldn't be surprised if Grant hadn't seen this much when he agreed, and dropped out with the official unveiling. I bet it gets taken down soon enough.

At least they´ve changed their Page now a bit.
These inbetweet lines and the "where goes the money" thing is now not a total ripoff.

Well but to be honest, i guess i´m out now. First i had a little bit interest, but i have a bad taste about everything somehow.

Time to play the Toybox to cure that right now. :D

I find these characters very creepy.
Furry-Bait pink cat with knockers... no thank you.

The game shows some promise in gameplay but lacks appeal altogether, there's no creativity in ripping assets and adding a few gimmicks of your own.

Even the way they want to present their campaign seems like a rip-off.

The part where the desert is shown the objects are cluttered in a messy way.

Also, I do not trust the developer to actually finish this thing to the end. He's inspired by a game he wants to copy to his own imagination. I doubt he has the experience or the team building skills to make his dream a reality.
Not in the way he currently shows off at least.

Meh, I'll watch and see what happens :p dreaming is good and all but setting your aim to high in the first place doesn't seem like a good idea.

Small steps first, I mean... Who the hell is that guy anyway?
