Hey backers!

We thought we’d pop in for a brew and give you some little updates as we move through the month of lurve.

64-Bit Tonic

It’s on the way! We’re still stuck with giving a non-date of “soon” because the 64-Bit Tonic is in the process of being tested externally. We want to ensure it’s in a good and proper state before we release it on a gazillion platforms. It’ll be worth the wait though, we promise! The less detail on Captial B’s ugly mug the better… 

This honey tastes a Bit different...

Developer Commentary Series

As we mentioned in the last update, the Developer Commentary series is well underway. We finished filming yesterday, so you’ll have the whole lot to sit through very soon. Until then, you can accompany on us on a visit to the Batship Crazy, Tribalstack Tropics, Glitterglaze Galcier and Moodymaze Marsh right here:

We'll update you on any further developments ASAP!

Yooka-Laylee Developer Commentary Series

Good afternoon, friends!

We hope you’ve all been doing well! It’s pretty cold with sporadic storms where we are. One of our tiny artists was almost carried away by rogue winds, so we've tied him to his desk as a safety measure.

Last week we released the first video in our Developer Commentary series. Have a look:

.

If you haven’t already, we reckon you should go ahead and subscribe to our Youtube channel, so it's easier to catch future additions to the series. We’re currently editing our Tribalstack Tropics episode (which is an hour and a bit long), and we’re aiming to get it to your eye-holes ASAP!

Take it easy and have an excellent Christmas.

DreamPrism's Yooka-Laylee Graphic Novel Kickstarter!

Greeting backers!  

We have exciting news today from a very talented Yooka-Laylee fan, who is hoping to bring an, ahem, ‘novel’ project to life.  

.

Yooka-Laylee and the Kracklestone is a full colour, 120-page graphic novel, created and drawn independently by DreamPrism Press founder D.M. Cumbo, with full blessing from us at Playtonic Games.  

As you can see it’s already looking pretty gorgeous, but in order to complete the book, the former Ratchet and Clank artist will be running his own independent Kickstarter from October 17 until November 16. So if the Yooka-Laylee graphic novel is something you’d like to see happen, give him a visit!  

Mr. Cumbo is aiming to deliver premium hardcover editions, plus a Grand Tome Collector’s Pack stuffed with exclusive, colourful gubbins.  

The Playtonic team is really excited to see what D.M. Cumbo does with Yooka-Laylee in this new medium, while we continue to focus our efforts in video game development.

Thanks for your support!
