If you thought Yooka-Layle would be another one to disappear into Kickstarter hell; you'd be wrong. It's now officially gone gold 21 months after its announcement.
We've had plenty of exciting Kickstarter projects go awry before. Those that plan to offer a lot for little money have, sometimes, gone the way of the dodo - taking the cash of the potential players with it.
But not this time. Not with these guys. Promising the spiritual successor to one of the N64's most beloved adventure games, these people banded together a number of the game's original workforce to build Playtonic Games and their vision of a return the that era with Yooka-Layle.
Now, after a number of years, the game has gone gold. Only one platform was culled from the game's original launch machines - and by that we mean the WiiU; not that the game is missing a platform in a level somewhere. Immediatly after new broke, the company also announced the hiring of Justin Cook - one of the lead designers of Viva Pinata. So it's safe to say the company already has more work in mind after sending Yooka-Layle out into the wild.
Kickstarter backers should have recieved an email today about finalising their shipping options, so make sure you see to those. It didn't even take 2 years to make it this far, but it still won't release until April 11.
