Don't forget to answer those asap guys, making the devs' job easier before they have to go after people to confirm addresses and names and whatever else.
There's also some poll there that they don't say what it is for, just asks for your favorite color. People speculated it's just the color of your name in the credits but kinda weird they didn't explain that.

I'm so happy that the paypal option is still open, since I only just found out about this game just now so I missed out on the Kickstarter. D:

I'm thinking about getting the one where you get to chose between the PC or console download + toybox, but I'm confused on what the 'PC toybox' and enhanced version of the toybox is meant to be? Like I have no clue on it lol. Is it a box full of toys? xD

Also I so totally thought that Yooka was going to be the girl and Laylee was going to be the boy, so I'm trying to get used to the genders being the other way around lol. And I don't get why there's a 'lol Yooka isn't wearing any pants' joke when most Sonic characters aren't questioned for not wearing anything?

EDIT: I really want the physical copy rather than a digital download, but as it is the 35euro is $76 according to paypal in Australia, so I can't imagine how much the 70euro + 10euro postage would be (probably like, $120 which is too much money for me). >___<

EDIT 2: nevermind i just found out that the toybox is a demo for the game, so backers can play it before non-backers. ok deff getting the enhanced version of that

"Yooka isn't wearing any pants" is because there were a lot of complaints about Yooka not wearing anything(or not looking more like Banjo for some reason),and all the inappropriate jokes that come along, even more now with Trowser that is wearing pants wrong.

eh i just don't see why people were complaining about that now when there have been animal characters in the past who don't wear any clothing, like most sonic characters (I don't count gloves and shoes), and i don't see why there's no complaints towards Laylee not wearing anything

also i can see laylee being my favourite. although i was kind of hoping that their personalities would get swapped

Well, people are going to complain and tighten their nostalgia googles a ton. But there's a big difference than the people in the Playtonic forums going 'eh Yooka seems kinda plain without clothing but I'm fine' and other places going 'this is not EXACTLY like I envisioned!Backing cancelled!'. I just wish he had a bit of a pattern on his belly because the colors just feel a bit too simple, but really not losing any sleep over that.
Still holding out on thinking of favorites. They've been super secretive about the villain, but if it's their usual over-the-top goodness, it might be worth the wait.

I like the simple design and I love how Yooka's arms and feet have a green stripes over the orange, because it gives the illusion that he's wearing clothing. But that's just me. :\

Well I'm just the type of person who prefers the 'naughty' character over the 'nice' character because I find the former more funny and interesting, while the later seems to always be more boring and predictable. Like how I preferred Kazooie over Banjo because she had a lot more sass.

i don't friking know. i'm pretty sure those 'parts' are inside of chameleons and lizards in general anyway? i think his design is fine, and i personally like how the two break the mold of stereotypes. laylee doesn't have anything most designers put on female animals like longer eye-lashes or a bump on the chest, and the designers said themselves that they were originally going for a stereotypical male build for yooka with the tiger but then scrapped the whole thing for an 'underdog' design.

also lmao i love how people over at tumblr are only talking about how laylee's design is breaking stereotypes yet completely ignore yooka. typical.

Pretty hilarious this is the same day Red Ash just happens to find a partnership to fund their less than popular game. Playtonic just needed people for legal stuff and had no issues in explaining the details.

Also last days for slacker backing on Paypal,guys, if you were waiting for paychecks and whatnot no better time than now!

EDIT: Aaand people are taking the news as exactly as Red Ash's. There's HUGE difference between a chinese publisher coming out of nowhere to FUND a game, and simply a partnership to have manpower an indie company won't ever have. Sure, it's a legit complaint to wonder why they didn't add physical release to said partnership, but they aren't trying to get extra funding if they beat every single stretch goal and going.

Yup, I kind of figured that a decent game with anthros in them FINALLY would be too good to be true. ...Or at least from what I have heard. People seem to think Team 17 will destroy this game. Frankly, I don't know what to think. I just know that games I actually look forward to rarely turn out to be good. ...Or get canceled.

Team 17 partnering with them isn't going to effect the game itself in terms of development and direction. Like, at all.

Also damn, I just found out about the PayPal backing when it was too late. :c

Again, mostly it's from happening the same day as Red Ash's mysterious chinese partner showing up and making everything happen for the dev team. But I think some discussion on the matter were perfect on point - Team 17 is known, and Playtonic was very transparent about how they're there for manpower so they can keep their "n64-sized team", and it's long after the Kickstarter and just as the paypal slacker backing ended. Red Ash just showed up the other day with this obscure Fuze who's been promising a console for some time with no reason given for delays, and got the entire game funded, and we have no idea what it's actually going to help Comcept with because they're being super secretive about it, and just said the fan money is going for Stretch Goals now.

If something goes wrong with Yooka-Laylee, it definately won't be because Playtonic didn't want to share what's happening. Unless they stop talking at all for the next year but considering they have Kirkhope and several people wronged by Microsoft's practices on the team that's just not going to happen.

Paypal backers should have their backerkits as soon as the Paypal funding ended. Although it took a while for non-Paypal backers to get their backerkits due to the massive amount of people who participated.

"If you’re an existing backer and you’ve still not received your BackerKit email, first check that your email is entered correctly in Kickstarter or PayPal, check your spam, then if you’ve still not received it visit this page to recover your login details."

Thank you so much! I got the survey now. :)

Decided to use my first name and name that I'm changing my tumblr and DA ID too in brackets. I decided not to use my last name though, since it's not a common name at all and I'm never comfortable with showing my last name in public. And I chose purple and PS4. xD

Also nothing appears in the add-ons. Has everything been sold out or something?

Nothing should be sold out, the number of items that you pledged for in the Kickstarter should be added in as only 1. The add-ons in the survey, like donating more money to Playtonic, are optional.

If the skeleton person is an NPC, might be from a spooky or jungle world? Either one is great, one is my favorite type of level,the other the dev team always made awesome ones(Mayahem Temple is definately a great first level).

On dev team news, so many people who pretty much just left Rare after Sea of Thieves to join Playtonic these last two months. As much as having them all together must be awesome, really hoping that doesn't mean that game had some choices that made everyone leave; a lot of people are hoping Sea of Thieves will show that the old Rare can still go places.

Wish more games were like these nowdays smilie looking forward to this.

I'm gonna get both A Hat in Time and Yooka-Laylee!

And the skeleton girl's role is finally revealed. She is still unnamed, but she is an NPC that will require Yooka and Laylee’s assistance on the very first world of the game. She forgot to turn the iron off or something and they'll need to go and get the spare keys off her landlord.

N64 era retro is really underappreciated. Sprite art is cool and all,but the simplicity and limitations of the 3D models back then allowed for artists to bring the cartoony up to eleven.

Also,if the retro challenges are anything like Hero Klungo Ssssaves the World, I'll be stuck there for a while.

In the animation, Yooka Laylee unintentionally took all of the collectibles that Banjo and Kazooie needed to progress and open doors. Without them, they got trapped and eventually died.

The game is not exactly going to be playable on the N64, it's a limited edition flash drive for backers.
