Those of you concerned thatspiritual successor Yooka-Laylee might not make its Kickstarter goal, there's absolutely no need to worry. At all. Seriously. Funding has just sailed past £1,300,000, from a planned goal of just £175,000.
In fact according, the game has become the fastest video game project to hit $1 million on the crowd-funding platform. It reached that target in a mind-bogglingly fast six hours.
Developer Playtonic claims, presumably through a Cheshire Cat style ear-to-ear grin, that all that extra cash won't be frittered away on nonsense extras and bloated features.
"We’ve attentively followed your feedback since the Kickstarter launched and we’re acutely aware of the concerns surrounding Kickstarter ‘bloat’," the team writes. "Backers can be assured that the Playtonic team is comprised of vastly experienced game developers, and we’ve carefully planned our stretch feature pledges to ensure that they won’t negatively impact on the creation of our game."
The next stretch goal, for example, is set at £1,500,000, and will see the addition of an orchestral score. Given that there's still 42 days left on the Kickstarter campaign, I'd imagine Playtonic has got some work to do coming up with some other goals for funders to smash through.
