As someone who's spent the past two years literally lobbying for JonTron's Yooka-Laylee dismissal and was briefly on Playtonic's side when all this started, I still don't know why people think the big deal is that and not Playtonic's record-breakingly horrendous handling of damage-control that happened in the days following.

It was Playtonic's idea pre-Kickstarter to get JonTron on board and make everyone aware of it. It was Playtonic's idea to start a relationship with these JonTronners and pretty much view their like as the target demographic. When you make an all-in statement on the matter like Playtonic did Thursday, you should be prepared to address concerns that some of your backers who you knowingly brought to the game BECAUSE they were fans of this person might have.

While literal nazis are going on raids and NeoGAF is boiling over in its own hotbed of extremity (see the nurse who had the authorities called on them after the Playtonic thread encouraged them to admit premeditated malpractice on right-wing patients), Playtonic employees have been content hiding behind locked accounts while it all goes down. This combined with their knee-jerk timing is when it starts to suggest that Playtonic might not have any real conviction or confidence in their decision, and no stimulus beyond fear of NeoGAF further stalking its employees

Yeah, Playtonic can't win, and someone is probably telling everyone there to shut up so that they don't wreak even more havoc (), but putting out a PR statement of that magnitude only to in the days following pretend that backers against it don't exist and that none of this ever happened - the kind of corporate/consumer division that indie devs are supposed to be a cure for - is some of the most irresponsible behavior I've seen from a developer.

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.

Okay guys, can we stop replying to things we already replied to and that get repeatedly brought up nonetheless?

Every effort is wasted and it's just hurting to see it going on and on.
