I considered it, but not sure I have the finances at the moment.

Likewise. I would have happily plonked the cash down if I could get in the £25 tier, but after splurging on GTA in an unplanned manner I'm just not holding the kind of folding required to indulge at the higher price. :D

I feel the £30 would have been better spent on this book than GTA. :)

The spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie launches on Kickstarter tomorrow...

http://uk.ign.com/articles/2015/04/30/s ... characters

Formerly known as Project Ukulele, Yooka-Laylee is the first game from Playtonic Games, a new studio formed by several veterans of acclaimed developer Rare. All footage in the news video above is the product of three month's work. Playtonic is launching a Kickstarter for the project on May 1st, with all backers able to pick up the finished copy for £10/$15. There are also plans include extras like soundtracks, art books, and a special '64-bit' special edition, a callback to the team's N64 pedigree. Full details will be revealed tomorrow.

If funded, Yooka-Laylee will be released on Windows, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U. The exact timing of each version is contingent upon the success of the Kickstarter campaign and its stretch goals.

If you've not being paying attention to it, the Yooka-Laylee kickstarter is going nuts.
Made it's funding goal in 35 minutes. Passed a million in under 24 hours. And now it's just hit £1.3 million with no signs of slowing down.

Hooray. :D

Is it wrong that I want this almost as much as I want Project Rain World?

I'm very tempted as well. It looks like a beautiful box set and I've been a fan of CAD since forever.

I also pledged a couple of days ago. I'm quite excited by the $500k stretch goal...

“We put together a gameplay demo that showed how you used The Black Glove artifact to explore the narrative rich environments of The Equinox and unlock its secrets. We brought it to GDC and PAX East and showed it to publishers behind closed doors,” the developer said.

“We garnered some interest, but didn’t find the perfect glass slipper we were looking for and, understandably, began to lose key people to full-time work elsewhere.

“We’ve invested thousands of hours and considerable thought and emotion into the project, so it’s hard to step away, but it’s not forever. We intend to return to The Black Glove later when we can do it right.”

CAD lost it appeal to me LONG ago. I think I stopped reading around the infamous comic strip. I used to freaking love it too.

Time to settle the argument over which controller is the best. Someone has made a device that allows you to use old controllers on new hardware. It's called the KADE and has popped up on Kickstarter.
