Watching the progress of Yooka-Laylee on their Kickstarter has been astonishing. It reached its initial funding goal of £175,000 within 40 minutes, and had surpassed their utmost stretch goal of £1,000,000 within a day. They’ve since added new stretch goals and funding has slowed significantly, but most certainly hasn’t stopped. Now sitting on £1,586,872 it has become the most funded UK game on Kickstarter ever, taking the title from Elite Dangerous. And with still 33 days to go, its got plenty of time to keep going up and up and up. Their next stretch goal of £2,000,000 promises releases of DLC after the game has been finished and released. What do you think the funded amount will be in 33 days time when the campaign closes?
Pretty sure it’s close to 2.5 million pounds at this point
NM. That’s dollars, not pounds XP
I’ll buy this game if they put a gun with them
Not surprised, its something people want and everything is being done in a very professional way.
This game better be fucking worth it.
No it will not, they don’t have guns with them

I hope people don’t set their expectations too high for this game. It will be great, don’t get me wrong, and I have already pledged my money and got a reserved copy. Really looking forward to it.
But it’s not gonna be Mario Galaxy good. Or even close to Mario 3d games standards. I have a feeling some people are hyping it up like it will, but I assure you it will not…
If it’s like Banjo-Kazooie than it will be. The Banjo games were great.
They were great, but they were also fully fledged console games. Not kickstarter side project games.
It probably cost 100 million to make Mario 3d World for the Wii U. Yooka-Laylee has 1.5 million. I’m all for the underdog, don’t get me wrong. And I’m sure it will be a great game. Just not a full fledged console game… Hopefully im wrong…
This isn’t just some “kickstarter side game.” They were going to make this game with or without kickstarter. The website was only to help move things along faster and to help get the community involved.
This game is going to be big, wonderful and well worth the money. It isn’t a big budget that makes an amazing game. I seriously doubt Mario 3D World cost $100 million to make, but even if it did, a $1.5 million budgeted game could be just as superior in terms of game play, story-line, character, etc.
When you compare a $100 million budgeted game to a $1.5 million budgeted game, all that I know for sure is one company wasted a LOT of money.
Mario 3D world wasn’t that great haha
Are you kidding? It was amazing… No Mario Galaxy, but still amazing..
Maybe the UK isn’t the lost cause that software charts suggest…
Other people funded it. Not only the UK so they are still the lost cause

You should also clarify – “free” DLC to backers when and only when the game is finished.
And the greedy jews still want more money!
