Yooka-Laylee - A 3D Platformer Rare-vival!

UPDATE 22/05 - The Yooka-Laylee campaign is now accepting payments via PayPal! Thanks for your support.

Yooka-Laylee is an all-new 3D platformer from the creative talent behind the Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country games. We’ve come together to form Playtonic Games and create a spiritual successor to our most cherished work from the past!

Our new heroes, Yooka (the green bloke with no pants) and Laylee (the wisecracking lady-bat with the big nose) were conceptualised from the ground up for stellar platforming gameplay, created by the same character artist behind the rebooted Donkey Kong family and legendary N64 heroes Banjo and Kazooie.

Using an arsenal of special moves like Yooka’s tongue grapple and Laylee’s tactical sonar blast, players will explore – and expand – gorgeous 3D worlds drawn up by esteemed environment artist Steven Hurst (Banjo-Kazooie series, Viva Pinata) and through skill discover the plethora of delicious collectibles hidden within.

We did this in 3 months. It took me almost that long to write this page.

Heroes Built for Fun: Our new buddy-duo were dreamed up specifically for entertaining platforming gameplay and exceptional colour coordination. We think we've captured the spirit of our past heroes while introducing our most inventive moves yet.

An Arsenal of Abilities: Sonar blasting, tongue whipping, sky soaring… a move roster built for platforming fun – and unlocked with added freedom. Additionally, there may or may not be a move involving a giant fart bubble.

Yooka regretted filling out that PPI claim.

A Dream Soundtrack: David Wise (Donkey Kong Country) and Grant Kirkhope (Banjo-Kazooie) combine in what's sure to be a melodic masterpiece! Seriously, clean out your ears - they're in for a treat.

Collect-em-up 2.0: A roster of shiny collectibles with gameplay progression at their core (as well as other, more valuable materials). Every collectible type in our new game will expand gameplay in a meaningful way. Yes, we employ the man responsible for DK64's myriad of trinkets, but we've had a stern word. Our main collectible, Pagies, are used to unlock and expand new worlds in Yooka-Laylee.

Expandable Worlds: Experience more of the playgrounds you love by spending collectibles to expand your favourites into bigger, more challenging worlds.

Take (musical) note: our new collectibles are work in progress.

A Cast to Last: A huge cast of memorable characters to meet (or beat) brought to life by the art and audio teams behind Banjo-Kazooie and destined to endure in future games as part of Playtonic Universe. Expect all manner of grunts, squeaks and squawks.

Introducing Play Tonics: Discover these unique gameplay modifiers and use them to customise gameplay to suit your style. Will you run faster, hit harder or fly further? Also, are they named after our studio or vice versa? We'll never know.

Arcade machines: Each world hides at least one secret arcade game encasing old-school gaming goodness. Complete its retro-tastic challenge to claim your Pagie!

You can expect accurate bat physics.

During their adventures Yooka and Laylee will complete challenges to unlock and collect Pagies. These golden collectibles are the main currency in the game, used not only to unlock new worlds but expand them too.

It's snow joke, this world's going to be cool.
It's snow joke, this world's going to be cool.
In the jungle world showcased in this Kickstarter for example, new islands containing advanced features and challenges will become available once you’ve decided to hand your Pagies over to the world-building construction crew.

Don’t give a monkey’s? Spend your Pagies elsewhere. If you desire, world expansion can be ignored entirely and you can hop, skip and roll your way through the standard worlds towards the final boss lurking in his or her mighty keep. And once the pivotal villain is nought but ash on the pavement, you can still opt to explore the expanded worlds with your full moveset post-credits to hunt down those leftover Pagies.

Yooka-Laylee will feature a truly mouth-watering (ear-leaking?) soundtrack created in collaboration by three of gaming’s greatest composers, the legendary David Wise (Donkey Kong Country, Diddy Kong Racing), equally esteemed Banjo-Kazooie composer Grant Kirkhope (Viva Piñata, GoldenEye 007) and Banjo sound effects supremo Steve Burke (Kameo: Elements of Power). 

This is one musical performance you definitely won’t want to miss! Don't believe us? Listen to the early excerpts below and tell us you're not excited. Go on, we dare ya.

'Jungle World' (working title / progress) by Grant Kirkhope:

'Jungle Challenge' (working title / in progress) by David Wise:
 
What's more we've already had Chris Sutherland - part time programmer, full time voice actor extraordinaire - locked in the recording booth to bring his iconic 'gibberish' style to the characters (and googly-eyed objects) of Yooka-Laylee, ensuring a genuine audio treat. You might as well play it with your eyes closed, to be honest.

If our initial Kickstarter funding goal is reached, backers can be assured that the Playtonic team will deliver a complete and satisfying game package. However, given the opportunity and additional resources required, we have a list of ‘dream’ additional extras – and release structures - that we’d love to deliver in order to make Yooka-Laylee an even better game.

If funded, Yooka-Laylee will be released for Windows, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Wii U. However, the exact release timing and scope of each version will be determined by the success of this Kickstarter campaign and specifically, our stretch goals.

We’d love to be able to guarantee a simultaneous, day-one release on all platforms in order to satisfy every Yooka-Laylee backer. In order to do this we’ll need to significantly expand our resources and budget, and if we can reach the funding number required we’d be excited to do so.

Any extra money will of course go towards improving the game. Below is an example of some of the extra features we’ll be able to fulfil by reaching stretch funding goals:

  •  What the Bleedin’ Norah is a Toybox? Our Toybox experiences are designed to deliver hands on time with Yooka and Laylee before the game even comes out. You can be the first to take our heroic duo for a spin (literally, if you press X) but we promise this self-contained plaything won’t spoil the full game: It’s built from in-game assets arranged specifically for this experience. There won’t be any objectives to beat, just a controllable duo, nice music and a few surprises too… !
  •  Toybox ++ The Enhanced Playtonic Toybox? Well of course, sir. A fine choice. I’ll prepare the improved play space, advanced props and special moves right away. Oh I’m sorry, are those sports shoes? I’m afraid I’m going to have to ask you to leave.
 
  •  It'll look something like this: (work in progress!)
 
 
  •  [Updated 08 June] The concert will be in Stuttgart, Germany at the Hegel Saal on October 30th 2016 – David and Grant are confirmed with more details to follow soon…!  
  • The Playtonic Team, composers and our backers will meet up in Stuttgart • You will be our VIP guests, we’ll all sit together at the concert and dinner and discuss the potential reasons why Grant talks so fast 
  • You may want to know more details before pledging, so please get in touch with us on kickstarter@playtonicgames.com or check out the organisers Facebook page here; https://www.facebook.com/rareconcert/info?tab=page_info
 
 

Playtonic was formed in 2014 by veterans of Rare Ltd. Between them, the seven-person Playtonic team has over 100 years of combined experience working on blockbuster franchises such as Donkey Kong Country, Banjo-Kazooie, Viva Piñata and Kameo: Elements of Power – and using this Kickstarter we intend to grow our talent even further! Allow us to introduce the team (so far)…

Our plan is to have Yooka-Laylee ready to ship on PC, Mac and Linux by October 2016. Console versions will follow shortly after, dependent on resources and the performance of this Kickstarter campaign. However, if our crowdfunding is a big success and stretch goals met, then we will look to secure the resources required to pull off a simultaneous, day-one release on all major console platforms alongside PC, Mac and Linux.

In order to finish Yooka-Laylee we will need to expand our team to an ‘N64 size’ roster of around 15, which we’ll look to do immediately upon reaching our funding goal. Therefore the vast majority of our budget will be allocated to wages and office space, plus the cost of outsourcing sound, testing and version creation. 

Yooka-Laylee is a real passion project for the Playtonic team and we’ve all made financial sacrifices to get it this far. We’ll finish the game at a smaller scale even if this Kickstarter doesn’t succeed, but the game will be bigger and better if it does! 
                                                                 

Risks and challenges

Game development can be a harsh taskmaster, with time and financial constraints often providing unexpected challenges that can ultimately lead to changes and delays. Fortunately, the Playtonic Games team has collectively been involved in more than 30 different games across more than ten different platforms and has great expertise in the 3D platformer specifically, with a strong track record of shipping some of the genre’s greatest hits.

So not only do we have extensive experience delivering quality releases within this genre, but we’re also well versed in working under the pressures of strict deadlines, budgets and high expectation. We’re very confident we can deliver a game that lives up to fan expectations, on time and on budget.

Another challenge is to find the perfect balance between our own ideas for Yooka-Laylee and the expectations of the community. We’re well aware that many fans are deeply, passionately attached to our past work and in some ways probably understand and adore its intricacies even better than we do. That’s why over the coming months – and during this very Kickstarter campaign – we’ll be consulting the community on some design issues and then ultimately making the final decision within our development team on the absolute direction.

In the past our most famous games have been single-platform releases. However, backers can be assured that the Playtonic team already has the necessary experience and channels to deliver a multiplatform release, and if certain stretch goals are met we’ll recruit in this area to deliver different versions of our game to an even smoother deadline. This is also one of the reasons we've decided to create the game using the versatile Unity engine.

FAQ

  • When we first announced our project in February it was as much to gauge the interest from fans as anything, and it’s fair to say that the response was massive - you only have to look at our amazing social media fans to see that!

    Back then, we said that our development was self-funded - and that’s true. But now we want to use Kickstarter to expand the scale and scope of those original plans to give fans what they want on their desired platforms of choice.

    We have decades-worth of ideas for worlds, characters and moves that we can now finally have the resources and freedom to bring to reality in Yooka-Laylee. Our game will release no matter what – but it will be bigger, better and on more platforms with a successful Kickstarter.

  • No.

    Yooka-Laylee is a 3D platformer adventure inspired by games like Banjo-Kazooie, and it’s being created by many of the key developers who worked on that game series, but its 100% new and separate from those games.

    Although we hope our game manages to capture the spirit of our past work, it will share no actual characters, items, code or anything else. Our team is comprised of senior ex-Rare employees, and we are all big fans of that studio, but our project is not affiliated with it.

  • If funded, Yooka-Laylee will be released for Windows, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Wii U. However, the exact release timing and scope of each version will be determined by the success of this Kickstarter campaign and specifically, our stretch goals.

    We’d love to be able to guarantee a simultaneous, day-one release on all platforms in order to satisfy every Yooka-Laylee backer. In order to do this we’ll need to significantly expand our resources and budget, and if we can reach the funding number required we’d be excited to do so.

  • The game footage you see today is the result of less than three months’ work. The conceptual phase for Yooka-Laylee began much earlier in December 2014, but we didn’t actually start building the game until February.

    If our Kickstarter is a success, we plan to release the game on at least some platforms by October 2016. Dependent on the success of this Kickstarter, we could release on all platforms simultaneously.

    Last updated:
  • Playtonic Games was founded because our team wanted to make a certain type of game and we wanted to do it in our way, specifically the way we used to make games in the 90s – in a small, collaborative team in an environment that encourages creative autonomy. We believe these philosophies appeal not only to us, but fans of our past work, and so we are determined to ensure that they’re maintained.

    However, should a publisher or distributor approach us with an offer that preserved these principles, and helped us improve the game in a specific area that benefits our fans and backers, i.e. helping us create versions for other platforms faster or release a physical edition, then we would at least be open to the possibility. Of course, we would be transparent to all of our fans and backers should this happen.

    Last updated:
  • Indeed it is, but that figure alone doesn’t give you the whole picture. We’ve already put a plan in place using personal finances to get the game done no matter what happens, however this extra money can be used by us to hire a few more talented people, get the game done sooner and allow us to commit to more features and platforms too.

    As stretch goals are reached you can see exactly what additional extras that money unlocks and we’ll be transparent with our development not just because it shows fans they can trust us, but we’re so excited to be developing the game and can’t wait to share the journey with them too!

    Last updated:
  • Not at all! Even including the personal money we’ve already contributed, the cost for this game will be a lot less than Banjo Kazooie on the N64 cost to make!

    It should be more expensive, but because we are paying ourselves below the industry average, we only have a basic office and we are using Unity, it really helps us focus every resource we have on to developing the game. We’re as determined as the fans to get this game made and hopefully, looking at what we’ve produced in just 3 months, you’ll agree that we haven’t compromised on quality to do it.

    In short, Yooka-Laylee will provide more content than BK, but cost less to make and cost fans less to buy too! Everyone’s a winner!

  • The 64-bit cart is an actual N64 cartridge, re-stickered with Yooka-Laylee artwork and it will contain a built-in 64GB flash drive – storing data will never be the same again! It’s not a N64 version of the game you can plug in and play on the N64 itself, that’d require real magic! (Even our very own programmers, Jens and Chris couldn’t pull that one off!... Have you seen how many polygons the artists are using!?)

You can be the first to take our heroic duo for a spin (literally, if you press X) but we promise this self-contained plaything won’t spoil the full game: It’s built from in-game assets arranged specifically for this experience. There won’t be any objectives to beat, just a controllable duo, nice music and a few surprises too.

    The Enhanced Toybox will include a special environment, advanced props and special moves right away.

    We’re aiming to release the Toybox experiences before the end of the year and we’ll update our backers with more precise timing after the Kickstarter ends.

  • We're continuing the tradition of our characters 'talking' using vocal noises - and this is what you'll have the opportunity to create! We'll choose a character and will give you guidance on the styling & duration of the noises, you'll record these [you will require some basic recording equipment], Chris Sutherland will give you feedback on the noises, then we'll polish and tweak the sounds until they are just right, before applying them to the game character!

    • Physical: Please note that, as part of the Kickstarter, there are currently no plans for a physical version for consoles.
    • Special thanks: Special thanks is included in the console tiers and indeed all tiers!
    • “All previous rewards": This does not include limited number rewards, and also as we’ve inserted additional rewards as the project has progressed the original meaning of the text may be less clear [note: we can’t change the reward text once we have backers on it], the best way to see exactly what is included in your tier is to review the reward matrix on this page.
