Interested in how the games sausage gets made? Yes? Then you need to be following Blocktober. No? Then you need to be following Blocktober. It’s a hashtag – no, come back – on Twitter this month, at which level designers on games big, small and yowza, really> big are showing off what their creations looked like before artists and graphics programmers went and covered up all the cleverness with prettiness. In other words, take a look at the component parts some of your favourite games are made of, and get a real sense of how much of what we take for granted as background scenery and pathing is meticulously built>.

Also: some of these unclothed visions of games such Star Citizen, Titanfall, Homefront, Yooka-Laylee, Vermintide, Bulletstorm, Dead Space, Uncharted and many more look like escapees from a beautifully minimalist alt-dimension of games that I would love to visit. (more…)

Hey you made it all the way through the patch notes!

Thanks for taking the time to check out all the changes we made and thank you for your support. It was your feedback and adventures within the world of Yooka-Laylee that made this patch possible.

We hope you enjoy these changes and good luck on your quest for Pagies.
Yooka-Laylee

Last month we rather breathlessly reported that Yooka-Laylee would soon get a patch, allowing you to 'reduce gibberish voices', among other things. Well, now the full patch notes have emerged, and for anyone unsatisfied or massively irritated by certain aspects of the retro 3D platformer, it'll probably be worth revisiting once the patch is deployed later this month.

Among the additions, a new optional camera mode stands out, which boasts "minimal assist" (I assume this means the camera will have a mind less of its own). The camera has been tweaked in other areas, too: there are less scripted camera sequences, and "door cams" will now appear behind the player.

Meanwhile, all arcade games have had design tweaks, and the aforementioned "skip the bloody annoying gibberish dialogue" has been confirmed. Oh, and cut-scenes can be skipped entirely, too. Here's the full list, while the full update post can be read over here:

  • Brand new pause menu music
  • New optional camera mode with minimal assist
  • Pagies have added signposts to Hivory Towers to help guide players to new worlds
  • Design tweaks to all arcade games
  • Speed improvement to scrolling through Totals Menu
  • New option for shorter ‘gibberish’ voice sound FX
  • New speech volume option
  • New ability to speed through dialogue by holding Y
  • Cut-scenes can now be skipped with Y
  • New moves section added to pause menu, with image guide
  • Camera design improvements throughout game (less scripted cameras, door cams now appear behind player etc)
  • Restart option added in the pause menu during arcade games and Kartos challenges

  • Laser move no longer requires player to crouch
  • Minecart control improvements and new visual effects
  • Transformation control improvements
  • Improved first-person aiming controls

Yooka-Laylee - Jonno

Hey all,

I come to you with news and details on what you can expect from the next, juicy Yooka-Laylee patch coming later this month.

We've heard your feedback, done some tweaks and changes, squished many a nasty bug (including the Capital Cashino one!) and can't wait to see what you think when the patch releases.

So, for the offical word on what's what check out Playtonic's update below...

CH-CH-CH-CHANGES

In the months since launch we’ve been hard at work on Yooka-Laylee’s first big game update, and we’re pleased to confirm that once our test team is done trying to break it, it will be deploying later this month on PC.

This rather plump update will add all manner of exciting gubbins, including the optional ability to skip dialogue faster, bypass cutscenes or reduce those pesky gibberish voices (which should please speedrunners), plus a brand new optional camera mode that gives players full control of where it’s pointed.

We’ve paid close attention to your feedback and hopefully the additions we’ve cooked up will make Yooka-Laylee an even more enjoyable experience, whether you’re playing for the first time or reptile rolling in for a second playthrough.

As promised, you can find a detailed breakdown of the updates we’ll be adding in the list below. In addition to these changes, we’ll also have an extensive list of bug fixes – which should resolve most common issues - when the game update is deployed in the coming weeks.
