Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter already a success

Playtonic Games hits goal in less than an hour

3D platformer Yooka-Laylee launched a Kickstarter campaign today and was funded in under an hour, proving that not everyone struggles with the dreaded crowdfunding fatigue.

At the time of writing the game had raised £494,582 from 12,676 backers on an original goal of £175,000.

The game is being developed by Playtonic - home to the creative talent behind the Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country - which no doubt helped nostalgic gamers reach for their PayPal account details.
