Playtonic Games have a lot to be happy about as they smashed the ball out of the park with their Kickstarter funded project Yooka-Laylee. The company has now decided to show off the 3D platformer’s first support character whose name is Trowzer. Trowzer is described by the team as a business-snake whose career never really took off. He will now aid Yooka and Laylee by teaching them some awesome moves to show off with.
“Trowzer thinks of himself as the best salesman ever, but with his downbeat appearance and 1980’s mobile phone, life never took off for him.
“He’ll take your money and count it (he’s an Adder…) and because he knows best he’ll even demonstrate the moves you just bought for you to replicate… if you can follow his jiggling.”
“I didn’t want him to be a snake in the traditional sense, and when Gav suggested he should have shorts on (do I have to add shorts to all of my characters?!), a great idea for this was his body could curl back up through the other leg hole. So he’ll move with a certain springiness, which will be fun to animate.”
