Playtonic confirms playable Yooka-Laylee demo, but no release date yet

It's 'getting close', though

A playable Yooka-Laylee demo will be available to some backers of its Kickstarter campaign.

The spoiler-free demo offers a glimpse of the game’s sandbox, platform design to those who have donated at least £20 towards the £2m it raised via Kickstarter last year.


“As promised in our Kickstarter campaign, the Toybox isn’t a traditional ‘demo’, but a self-contained, spoiler-free sandbox designed to give Yooka-Laylee backers a taste of the platforming to come in the final game,” says the latest update on playtonicgames.com. “There are plenty moves to try, custom-built props to play with, secrets to discover and yes, shiny collectibles to hunt out.” 

“So why has it taken so long? Quite simply, our plans for the Toybox have expanded beyond the web-based, single-room play thing we originally planned and it’s now a much more significant chunk of playable content.”


The update also confirmed that it cannot confirm the release date, but the Playtonic team stated it was “getting close”. 

“[A]s fans of some of our past work will attest, we’re a group committed to releasing games only when they’re polished, complete and at the quality level you expect. As soon as we’re confident we’ve ticked all of those boxes, we’ll inform our backers directly of when to mark their calendars.”
