The bear and bird have been replaced with a chameleon and bat combo, Yooka and Laylee. Yooka can use his tongue to grapple across long distances and snatch items to give himself different properties. Laylee on the other hand can be found hanging off Yooka’s ears and can carry Yooka around. He also has a sonar attack to get rid of pesky enemies.
Asking for a rather modest $270k /£175k, the Kickstarter was fully funded in under 1 hour from the campaign going live.
Playtonic is now working towards their stretch goals with the current highest being for £1 million where the game will get a simultaneous release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U to coincide with the PC, Linux and Mac release.
