    First announced and discussed as Project Ukulele, Yooka-Layleee is a 3D platformer with an emphasis on item collecting. Created by Playtonic Games, a company made up almost entirely of former Rare employees, the game serves as a spiritual successor to the beloved Banjo-Kazooie series. Yooka, the chameleon, can roll to attack enemies, while Laylee, the wisecracking bat, can lift Yooka and fly both characters across wide spaces.




    The game is being funded through Kickstarter. The goal of £175,000 will yield releases for PC, Mac, and Linux, while Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U releases will be added at the stretch goal of £1,000,000. The current estimated release is October 2016. Check out the official website here.

    EDIT: And in only thirty-eight minutes, the game is officially funded!
    EDIT 2: Last night the game blew past £1,000,000, which means the game will release on all listed platforms on day one! New stretch goals have been added, though I don't know how they're going to keep thinking of stretch goals at the rate the Kickstarter is going.

    The first new stretch goal as already been funded:

    Though I do hope they get more creative with their stretch goals instead of doing something like a LP.

    This was actually announced a few days ago, but as the Kickstarter achieved the orchestral score stretch goal, the newest goal is as follows:

    More than a year since this was last posted in. Strange. Well I haven't kept up with this game but apparently it's been delayed until Q1 2017. But hey, new trailer.

    Image no work. NICE ONE

    Too bad I can't play the Toybox on X1. I'd probably preorder tbh. It looks wonderful and WHERE ELSE AM I GONNA GET A 3D PLATFORMER?!?!?

    Seriously.

    Where.

    Send help.

    It's been a sec since it was announced, but a new game in the series, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, launches for all major platforms on October 8! This one's a 2D platformer with an explorable top-down overworld between 2D levels. The villain, Capital B, sets himself up in the titular Impossible Lair after wresting control of the Stingdom's Beetallion, and players can challenge the Lair from the get-go—but it's called the Impossible Lair for a reason. However, playing through the overworld and the 2D levels will see players rescue members of the Beetallion, who will serve as shields for Yooka and Laylee in the Lair.
