Yooka-Laylee is the spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie that’s being developed by ex-Rare developers Playtonic Games, and is now live on Kickstarter to acquire funds to make the game a reality.
“When we first announced our project earlier this year it was as much about gauging interest from fans as anything, and it’s fair to say that the response has been massive,” said Gavin Price, managing director and creative lead at PLAYTONIC.
“Until now our development has been self-funded, but Kickstarter presents us with the amazing opportunity to deliver YOOKA-LAYLEE at the level of scope and scale that fans demand – and on their games platform of choice. Our team has decades-worth of ideas that we hope we’ll now finally have the resources and freedom to bring to reality.”
Update: It’s already funded and passed its first stretch goal, this was achieved in less than 2 hours of the campaign going live.
