Yooka-Laylee had a huge amount of hype when it was announced but didn’t quite live up to people’s expectations upon launch. However, the duo could be getting their own comic spin-off which is approved by developer Playtonic and both written and illustrated by Dreamprism’s D.M. Cumbo. The end result will be a 120-page graphic novel which is set after the events in the video game. The Kickstarter campaign for Yooka-Laylee and the Kracklestone needs $40,000 USD to make it a reality and it kicks off tomorrow.
“Set after the game, the new story sees the chameleon and bat duo entering a new tome world in a race against Dr. Quack to grab an artifact rumoured to grant invincibility.”
“I’ve had a blast writing and a drawing a new story for Yooka and Laylee. The book blends the game’s spirit of playful exploration and character-driven storytelling. The Playtonic Games crew worked on a lot of the games I loved as a kid, so it’s pretty surreal to now have the chance to work with their characters.”
