Yooka-Laylee Destroyed Its KickStarter Goal In 45 Minutes

That was fast.

Earlier, I talked about the reveal of the Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor Yooka-Laylee and mentioned the game was launching a campaign on KickStarter today. As it turns out there was quite a big desire for this kind of game. The campaign to fund the title reached its £175k goal in just 45 minutes. At the time of writing, it currently sits at £400,000 and rising astronomically fast.

This is exciting news. It almost makes you wonder why Microsoft have been waiting for to pull the trigger on another Banjo-Kazooie. The audience is clearly massive.

You can head over to the page here and 'secure' your copy of the game for £10, as well as invest in a whole host of other goals. There is a video explaining what Playtonic want to do with the game over there too. I have to say, I'm fairly impressed.
