Post Release - Spit 'N' Polish



Hey everyone!

You've been getting stuck into Yooka-Laylee for two Pagie packed weeks now and Playtonic have an update for you...but first, a word of thanks from the Developers:

Yooka-Laylee has been in the wild for two whole weeks and we’ve been positively overchuffed by the response from fans and backers around the world! We’ve very much enjoyed reading your feedback, lurking on your livestreams and absorbing your lovely comments, so thanks again for the support! It’s been emotional.

Thanks to you lot, some 20 developers remain off the streets, mostly fed and in a stronger position than ever to continue creating colourful, personality-plump adventures!


What's next?

Your feedback has been amazing, thank you for taking the time to get in touch and sharing both positive and constructive feedback that will allow us to add significant improvements to the game and even add in some of the most requested features. So, coming soon...
  • The ability to skip dialogue faster.
  • Bypass cutscenes.
  • The ability to reduce the dulcet gibberish tones of the characters.
  • Design polish & gameplay tweaks.
And by popular request, Camera changes.

We've heard you loud and clear on how you feel about the camera, so we're going to be making some changes to how the camera operates. This will give more freedom to the player by taking some, if not all of the reigns off the camera.

We'll be sharing a more detailed breakdown of the planned game update in the coming weeks as we make progress.

Until then, we'll be hanging out in the forums chatting to you and helping where we can.

If you'd like a sneak peek of the camera changes and dig a bit deeper into what's going on behind the scenes at Playtonic you can do so over on their official blog HERE.

Digital Deluxe Edition



Yooka-Laylee Digital Deluxe is the ultimate platforming package, including an exclusive digital manual and art book, plus the game’s incredible soundtrack!

DIGITAL MANUAL & ART BOOK


Yooka-Laylee’s 24-page digital manual and art book features exclusive details on the characters, worlds and challenges set to feature in the highly-anticipated platformer revival! Oh, and there are a few excellent puns in there too, if you’re interested.

The digital artbook includes never-before-seen concept art and in-development images offering an insight into the creation of the game. Marvel at the post-it note origins of serpent salesman Trowzer! Say ‘wow’ as you discover that Dr. Quack used to ride a tank! A must-have for fans.

SOUNDTRACK


Yooka-Laylee’s mouth-watering (ear-leaking?) soundtrack combines three of gaming’s greatest composers, the legendary David Wise (Donkey Kong Country, Diddy Kong Racing), equally esteemed Banjo-Kazooie composer Grant Kirkhope (Viva Piñata, GoldenEye 007) and the award-winning Steve Burke (Kameo: Elements of Power). This is one musical performance you definitely don’t want to miss!

About This Game

Yooka-Laylee is an all-new open-world platformer from genre veterans Playtonic!

Explore huge, beautiful worlds, meet (and beat) an unforgettable cast of characters and horde a vault-load of shiny collectibles as buddy-duo Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with the big nose) embark on an epic adventure to thwart corporate creep Capital B and his devious scheme to absorb all the world’s books… and convert them into pure profit!

Using their arsenal of special moves, our heroes will tackle a huge variety of puzzles and platforming challenges in their search for Pagies, the golden bounty used to unlock — and expand — stunning new worlds, each jammed to the gills with oddball characters, hulking bosses, minecart challenges, arcade games, quiz shows, multiplayer games… and much more!

KEY FEATURES:


INTRODUCING OUR NEW BUDDY DUO: Yooka and Laylee boast an awesome arsenal of abilities built for platforming fun and unlocked with added freedom from the serpent salesman Trowzer.
