Playtonic Games released its "Toybox" demo (PC/Mac/Linux via Steam) for Yooka-Laylee today, and if you backed the Kickstarter campaign at a high-enough tier to secure a code, you might as well stop reading now and get to playing. It looks wonderful! You're almost certainly in for a good time.
To recap, this demo is a "self-contained, spoiler-free sandbox" meant to let players feel out the game and its core mechanics. "There are moves to try, custom-built props to play with, secrets to discover and yes, shiny collectibles to hunt out and we've even included a never-before-seen NPC to chatter with, but it’s only a small sample of the finished production – and visually it's incomparable."
Even this short trailer has me smiling. Wish I would've backed the game, but I'll be there day one.
