The Kickstarter for Yooka-Laylee, a spiritual successor to the original Banjo-Kazooie 3D platformers, met its $270,000 goal in just 40 minutes last Friday, May 1. Now, only three days later, it sits at over $2 million.

Yooka-Laylee will feature large worlds to explore using a variety of special moves and abilities to collect numerous goodies and fight bosses. Yooka is a chameleon with a long tongue to grapple with, and Laylee is a bat with a sonar blast. Laylee can flap his wings to add a bit of distance to Yooka’s jump, just like Kazooie did for Banjo back in the day. With additional stretch goals now met, Playtonic also plans to add a quiz show level, mine cart levels, transformations and multiplayer modes. Clearly, Playtonic is sticking to as many elements from the classic games as possible.

Friday Top Five: Best Bang for your buck!

Look after the pennies, and the pounds (or dollars, euros, pesos or whatever) will take care of themselves. Or at least, that’s what our parents used to tell us, right?

That may be sensible where traditional currency is concerned, but it’s not a strategy that converts well into MSP. Waiting for sales and bargains may be the cheapest way of buying XBLA games – but what if the game you want never goes on sale? What if everyone else has moved on and you lose out on the best bit of a fantastic co-op game like Lara Croft: GOL or a community-focused game like Section 8: Prejudice? What if you think you’re buying something you want, but actually you just bought it because it was cheap and you end up wasting MSP anyway?
