EGX Spotlight: Yooka-Laylee

A Rare platforming throwback

Yooka-Laylee is one of the most successful Kickstarter games round, at the time it was the fastest game to reach $1million in funding. Being developed by Playtonic Games, a new team made up of ex-Rare games employees. Yooka-Laylee is a nostalgia-fuelled 3D platformer with more than an inkling of Banjo-Kazooie in its DNA.

Players take control of both characters working as one. Yooka the chameleon and Laylee the bat. The Pair will need to explore mini hub worlds, picking up new powers and meeting a colourful cast of cartoonish characters in order to progress.

We will be playing Yooka-Laylee at EGX Rezzed and will update with hands-on impressions soon.
