A bunch of blokes formerly from Rare are making another Banjo-Kazooie game. Except instead it’s Yooka-Laylee—a 3D platformer staring a little animal on the back of a larger one with complementary skill sets. That’s right, they don’t have the rights to the name and intellectual property of the N64 smash hit, so UK-based Playtonic are in effect making a clone of their own former project.
The game is currently on Kickstarter and sucking down cash like mad, because nostalgia. I mean the game will probably be great, but the only qualm I have is that a chameleon’s eyes do not look anything like those big blue peepers on Yooka’s face. I know it’s a cartoon, but real chameleon eyes are so distinctive.
If you want to get in on the action, the project is here.
