"Yooka-Laylee" blasts pasts it Kickstarter goal with the promise of a return to classic gaming, but will the final game deliver?By Ben Lawson | May 1, 2015
In a skyrocket fueled by nostalgia, another video game has blasted past its Kickstarter goal.
Playtonic Games' Kickstarter for its new game, "Yooka-Laylee," hit its goal of $270,000 less than 40 minutes after the Kickstarter went live. It's now raised more than $1 million as of Friday night, and shows no signs of slowing down.
That's because it comes from some of the creative team behind "Banjo-Kazooie" and "Donkey Kong Country." The new game is being described as a revival of the "buddy-duo platformer" starring Yooka, the chameleon, and Laylee, the bat. And, yeah, they are adorable.
