Playtonic's much-hyped spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie - the greatest non-Crazy Taxi game of all time - has been confirmed as Yooka-Laylee. Superb!

Full announcements will be made when the Kickstarter goes live tomorrow evening, but for now we know that it's a 3D platform-adventure made by ex-RareWare personnel with Grant Kirkhope on the pipes. Which is more or less all that we need to know.

"The rebirth of the 3D platformer"...hoping so!

Getting Grant Kirkhope on board was an inspired choice - the man still does great work. Saw that it's coming to PC too, so I'll be keeping an eye on this. Thumbs Up!

Y'know, I might chuck some money at this. A genre I really love, and the collectathon platformer in particular was a big favourite of mine. Not sure that the official name is the best, but the pedigree is right. Thumbs Up!

I didn't realise this was still Kickstarting! Think I might get behind it and back. We need more SM64-alikes, and no game with GK has ever had bad musi- (remembers DK64) Nevermind.

I seen a bit more footage of this in an IGN video & even though it's early days it looks like something that wouldn't hold my interest for very long.

Posted about it in the Kickstarter thread, but definitely deserves it's on thread.

I will be backing, not sure how much depending on rewards.

The thing I don't like is the bat's red nose. Looks a bit stupid. I like the chameleon, though.

And the name's absolutely ridiculous, but I feel that adds to its charm.

I don't have any issue with the designs of the characters myself, just pointing out that from the small snippet of gameplay that I seen that it doesn't excite me yet.

(Again it's still early days)

Well I don't think it matters if Jas is excited as is been pretty much backed in 40 minutes.

Also there's a N64 cartridge version.

I'm really impressed by this, to the point where this is the first thing I've ever backed on Kickstarter. I read through the design premise for the game and I'm intrigued. I'd recommend checking out the two music tracks posted on the Kickstarter page - gorgeous stuff!

I think this is about the 6th thing I've backed but I can see this doing a silly amount in terms of the amount it generates.

For the sake of how quickly it was backed I hope it does turn out to be really good, I just need to see more of it before I fully make up my mind about it as the nostalgia of ex rare staff members being on board isn't enough for me.

For the purposes of this post, Jay and I are the same person. A future 20 of mine has gone on this and that music Jay pointed out is brilliant: as you'd expect, the Kirkhope piece sounds like it belongs in Banjo-Kazooie, and the David Wise one could easily have been in Tropical Freeze. V. excited. Dance

I don't know how much Jay has pledge but just between me, zero and balla we've pledged 105 and we all know ibbsters in some form that's 455 just between 4 people.

I did tweet wonder if M$ are looking at this and thinking we should of let them make a new Banjo or they will make a new Banjo

I don't think this thread contains a link to the Kickstarter yet: click here. Contains NGamer-ish picture captions, two pieces of music which (as Zero says) remind me of B-K and DKCTF in the best possible ways, and a surprise inclusion for CVG alumnus Andy Robinson. Well worth a gander.

Just giving it a proper read now, I see Taxes is one of the things they are going to use money for but I thought in the UK devs can get tax breaks.

I'll pledge the 15 to get the game on console but how cool is that N64 version? That'd make it one of the more expensive N64 games sadly (probably not the most expensive).

You know it's not actually a N64 game right, just a flash drive shaped like a N64 cart and comes in a N64 box etc.

They still do but boring ones but this is a very very cool reward which I would of backed for about 100-50 but can only see it going up in price for the ones that to buy it.

On N64 games Conker is 200 minty, so Yooka likely is the most expensive N64 thing that the public could of bought.

If you aren't planning to use it, I'll put my hat in the ring for the demo when it arrives. I could write a preview of sorts for Gintendo. Smile

I pledged 10 to get a Steam key. If future updates grab my interest, I'll add more to my pledge.
