Wouldn't it be nice if there was a similar event for people in the states? I don't even know what retailer the game could be tied with here. What music retailers are still around?!

Yooka-Laylee's toughest content is optional

Looking for a real challenge in Yooka-Laylee? You can access some really tough platforming sections in the game, but they're completely optional. You'll need to use Pagies to unearth the content, but it's not necessary to make your way through the game to the end.

‘It’s all still just an option. It’s up to players. If they want to turn it into this mammoth environment, which is almost a puzzle unto itself, they can do it. That’s where the most difficult content will be though, so maybe some people won’t want to. You don’t need a huge number of Pagies to unlock the other worlds, so we want to make it quite easy for players to see what the game has to offer.’ - writer Andy Robinson

An insect main character was considered for Yooka-Laylee

Coming from a Wow247 interview with Playtonic writer and communications director Andy Robinson...

“There was also the suggestion of an insect at one stage,, but who likes insects? Actually a few of us…just not Steve Mayles"

That idea was tossed aside for the bat and chameleon pairing you see now.

"We felt that their innate abilities would make for naturally fun platforming gameplay. Laylee being a bat, for example, has a whole roster of sonar moves which she can use to stun enemies and smash objects. Yooka meanwhile, as a chameleon, can camouflage and sneak past enemies, plus he has a whole host of tongue moves such as the ability to eat objects and absorb their properties, or use his tongue as a grapple hook.”
