The previously unknown and mysterious Project Ukelele, born from Banjo-Kazooie masterminds, was revealed yesterday as a brand new 3D platformer Yooka-Laylee. Now, we can see some gameplay footage of Yooka and Laylee in action in their colouful, cartoon world. Yooka-Laylee, launched on Kickstarter today, needs to raise £175,000– well, its already made £134,575* and is going up and up and up by the second. It’s quite interesting to watch! Between the music and game style, seems like this game is a perfect mash-up of Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country, but with a refreshing modern twist. What do you think of the game– spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, or too similar and a bit of a cop out?
*As I was writing this it actually smashed its goal and is into the £200,000’s, insane!
