Lots of interesting bits of info about the production and progression of the game so far and what to look forward to when it finally releases!

Y'know, I didn't know much about this game besides the name and that was it, I didn't even look into because of life, but after things were starting calming down at bit I decided to look up some artwork of the game and I gotta say it got me a bit intrigued. Now, after getting caught up with all of the news about it with former guys at Rare developing it and seeing gameplay in actino; I'm a lot more interest than I initially was, so here's looking forward to the game's release and being a fantastic one!

 

That's my discovery with this game at least. I can't believe it under my radar for quite a while.

I love how even retro revivals can't ignore the bullshit this industry has embraced.

 

Fucking incredible.

Well at least it's content that's being made after the actual game has been completed, much like Skyrim. It's not cutting out content that's in the game like titles like Arkham City. That's DLC that I wouldn't feel bad or dirty for buying.

I think even in some cases, people complain about content that was made before a game's launch, but in many cases said content was made after the game was finished and they just had free time to add more stuff. The game takes time to get ready for launch and developer's don't just sit on their butts doing nothing.

 

 

Camelot did this in the case of Mario Golf: World Tour, for example.

 

 

Sometimes content has to get cut otherwise it won't release in a reasonable time frame. In cases where the content was already in the game and finished, but got cut to sell as DLC, that's a different story. Unfortunately, its difficult to know when such occurrences happen.

 

 

 

That said, I don't think Solkia was complaining about it, I think he's just saying that they're mocking day-one DLC. Which they basically are, since they clearly denote "When, and only when, the game is completed."

 

Then again I could be wrong and Solkia may have been complaining. The problem with many complaints about DLC, though, is that you can't just keep delaying a game to add more and more content. You release a full game, then add more content later. Sometimes, if the content is small enough, you might have time to finish it before the game actually launches (like in the case of Mario Golf: World Tour).

That last one is especially amazing. At first glance I thought it was a piece of concept art with the depth and level of detail it has.

 

This is already shaping up to be a great game that captures that old Rareware magic and I'm glad to be a backer. Hopefully it can reach £2 million before the campaign's end.

Sorry for the double post but it looks like Playtonic just released an new update, and it's not a happy one. The gist is that some one fucked up an order and ended up costing a larger portion of the games budget. As a result the game's overall visual and music budget will be taking a large hit.

 

To say this is disappointing is an understatement, the Kickstarter curse carries on guys.

Ok, that's pretty hilarious. So I suppose that's one of the arcade games that will be available in the game? Looks pretty cool. ^^

 

 

 

Somehow I feel as though this is half joke and half shenanigans.

After actually watching the video its definitely a joke, but it looks like they did make a real 8-bit platformer game (not likely a FULL game of course), and my guess is its one of the mentioned Arcade games that's to appear in Yooka-Laylee.

Yeah, i'm betting on that myself so this is probably more of a sneak peak on what we can expect from the arcade games (which if they're all going to be as interesting as this I can't wait to see the others);
