Yooka-Laylee is already about to reach it's goal. *Hype Initiated* smilie


40 minutes in, too! If that's not the world record for kickstarter, the stretch goal times probably will be.

There's one more thing I'm worried about. "If the kicktarter reaches its goal soon, it will be out sooner." Honestly, I'm willing to wait for them to make the best game possible. I'm worried that it may just end up being a rush-job that ends up being an unfinished game released at a set deadline. After all, That's where Sonic 06 ultimately met it's demise. ...I know I might be worrying over nothing, but I'm still worried about the game. It's rare that I actually want a game to be good that ends up actually being good.

Well,the S06 comparison might be a bit too much. They'll release it faster because they'll have a way to pay a bigger team - 15 can only go so far with the initial goal, but if several times that they might be able to even get a port house to get the games on consoles quicker than finishing them on steam first then doing the porting.

Getting the Digital Deluxe package with T-shirt included, of course this could change. But even for a game that's gonna take like a year and a half to come out, I can't wait for this!

Has the kickstarter done better than Mighty No. 9? I think it has, but I'm not sure. So far, I think it looks good, but one thing dissapoints me. The rest looks good though, particularly the upgrade/word-expanding system.

I was just looking at the kickstarter page, it increased in about £250 in about 1 minute.

EDIT: Also, I noticed something that might hint at one of Yooka (and Laylee)'s abilities: Before they were officially announced, Playtonic said (in response to some "where are the main characters" posts/tweets/etc.) "They [Yooka and Laylee] have already been shown. Can't you see them?", but they weren't visible. Because of Yooka being a Charmaleon (which can change colors and blend into the environment IRL), I think he might be able to go invisible.

I just found this:

"Anyway, for this Gavin just said, 'you're the character guy, get along with it,'" Mayles continues, thinking back to Yooka-Laylee's initial stages of development earlier this year. "At first I drew a tiger but he was too macho, too much of a hero. We settled on a chameleon as it fitted a lot of moves we wanted, and we had the idea he could eat things which then give him specific properties. So he could eat a rock and become rock solid."

It looks like there might be power-up items. Source.

The also taked about him having chameleon-based abilities, which means he might have invisibility (like I said above). Also, they reached £400K.

Also first special "stretch goal" revealed,even if it's not much - if we break 1 million tonight, Kirkhope is playing an ukelele outside of E3's convention center. Sure, donations will greatly slow down as the day passes,but it's anything but impossible at this point and pretty hilarious.

You can already hear it in one of the sample tracks.

Just pledged for the PC Boxed Deluxe Edition (which includes all previous rewards).

If anyone else is going for the pricier rewards like that, just know that Kickstarter doesn't charge you until the Kickstarter period ends. In this case, it's more than a month from now.

Don't worry,there's a whole month for them to make one controversial decision(say, villain isn't a Gruntilda knockoff) and people cancel their donations on sight like it'd change anything. Or worse, happen like during the DLC votes for Skullgirls where people reported it because their favorite character didn't win and Paypal refused to give them the money until several months later.

It's Rare. They know what to do to make a good game, especially with a giant budget like this. They made great games for basically 2 decades, they can totally do this.

Just don't let the hype get to you too much. Expectations get too high,the game will suck even if it actually doesn't at all; just look at people's reactions to every big franchise because they think it'll be GOTY on sight. Enjoy the ride but don't sink so much time into it that playing won't feel as great.

They've announced a final stretch goal: a fully orchestrated score if they surpass 1.5 million pounds (about 2.275 million USD). The orchestra hasn't been specified, although I'd guess it'd be the City of Prague Philharmonic since Grant Kirkhope's worked with them for the Viva Pinata series, Nuts & Bolts, and Kingdoms of Amalur. <.<;

Now I want to see Yooka in leg warmers D: I get Steve and his explanation for the lack of clothes,but I think the real problem is that Yooka just has too simple of a design for his model. Even some spots or scale lines would break the monotony a bit, but they'll probably do that once the game's graphics get a bit more development.

And I finally managed to back the game! Now to save up for a WiiU before they release the codes ._.

Well, he's already voice acting in the other big kickstarted collectathon(A Hat in Time), so why not. But it'll be kinda hard to notice him among the gibberish backer voice acting unless it's full of ECHs and over-the-top expressions.

#92 Posted: 14:18:28 06/05/2015
It's not a problem with the game if you're the one going depressed over someone going 'eeeh reaaah raaah'. They did that back then because they were the VAs themselves(Kirkhope voiced so many characters if he wasn't already doing most of the SFX with his voice), and now because they probably don't want to hire VAs - probably why we'll get backer voices too.
I'm so-so with gibberish in the older games, though I prefer - and that's probably the ONLY time I'm using this sentence - the ones they used in Nuts and Bolts. Not the shorter sounds compared to the phrase, the fact that they had varied noises depending on the expression. Grunty was definately a lot more crazy-sounding with many variations instead of the same laugh to different tempos.

Well opinions opinions. Regardless of how blunt and reckless Jon is about... anything really, his videos are still really good and he's pretty much a big name fan of BK. Too bad there's probably zero chance of getting Michael Jones from Rooster Teeth as well, since he's also a big name fan; he's been doing voice acting but he's been also working on the company's movie.
