About the game
Yooka-Laylee is an all-new open-world platformer from key creative talent behind the Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country games. Newly-formed as Playtonic Games, the team is building a spiritual successor to its most cherished work from the past!

Playtonic’s new heroes, Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with big nose) were conceptualised for stellar platforming gameplay, created by the same character artist behind the rebooted Donkey Kong family and legendary N64 heroes Banjo and Kazooie.

The game isn't due until next year, so hopefully it will be as good as it looks. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I'm so excited for this game! Banjo Kazooie is my favorite N64 game, and this game beautifully captures the overall feeling of that game! In fact, it's so similar I'm shocked they aren't getting smacked by Rare for copyright infringement. I'm glad they haven't, though, because this is an epic-looking game!

Sorry, but I need a working prototype to believe that is comming.
Sadly we have seen to many companies that promised linux version only to get the money, and we had never got anything.
But I think that we can have a hight hope for this (hopefully).

I hope this isn't another Mighty No. 9.

I never was into Banjo however I am constantly looking for games to complete my game console experience.

I had visitors today and we played Lethal League, we play Pac-Man 256 at night because the multiplayer is awesome. And we play Disco Dodgeball sometimes.

I just started playing CS:GO with Xbox 360 Controller on my Steam Box, and I gotta say it immediately perked my interest as my Halo 3 strategy and style is more transient than it is via keyboard.

I'll collect all old and new games that fill a place from the 90s.

Still waiting for 90s Arcade Racer....

I backed this on Kickstarter, so I can confirm that at the very least the "Toybox" alpha-demo-thing has been released for Linux and works very well. It runs on the Unity engine.

They seem to have found the boundary between fair use and copyright infringement and decided to push right up against that line 100%. Even if somebody who had never yet heard of Yooka-Laylee saw this trailer, it would be clear to them that it is basically Banjo-Kazooie 2.0 made by Rareware 2.0.
