Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair



A sequel to Yooka-Laylee was announced today. This time, it’ll be a side scroller with an overworld. What do you think about the genre shift?

I'm excited to give it a try. Not usually into 2D platformers as much but I love the characters. Overworld looks neat too.

Should be a jolly old riot. I like the enemy and character designs they've got goin' on. Though some of them are steering into uncanny valley territory.

I have absolutely no interest in this game. The DKC influence on Yooka Laylee led to it's worst parts. DKC has never clicked for me, so there is no chance I'm buying into this.

2D is a huge suprise and it has a lot of potential. It looks great.

This certainly is a video game.

According to Playtonic's website, this game is a spin off instead of a sequel. They have plans for other Yooka Laylee games too. I don't know about you guys, but I think it is a little early to have spin offs coming out.

Banjo was in a spinoff before he even had his own game, and he turned out fine.

Well, he's not fine NOW, but he WAS fine.

Honestly? It looks phenomenal. Better than the first. Yooka-Laylee was only decent because it bit off far more than it could chew. With the smaller scale of a 2D platformer (although, given the overworld, I'd call it a Zelda II-alike), Impossible Lair shouldn't run into the same issues.

Hi! How is everyone?

Is it a sequel? I assumed it was Yooka-Laylee DLC. It looks okay but can it top Tropical Freeze?

It's a new game, not DLC. For those interested, here's some gameplay of the Impossible Lair from E3!

Looks really good and fun to me. I like the idea of the Impossible Lair being this thing that can technically be done if you're a super pro but it's so hard you pretty much need the Royal Beetallion to pull it off.
