Yooka-Laylee Toybox released for applicable backers

Yooka-Laylee - Open the Toybox

Sound the horn! Rattle the hen cages! The much-anticipated, long-inaugurated Toybox will be parading its way towards Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter backers today!

From today, Thursday, July 28, backers who opted for tiers including the Toybox or Toybox+ will receive their codes via BackerKit, so please log in and make sure your e-mail address is current. Otherwise we’ll feed your key to the greedy peacock who roams our grounds.

As promised in our 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. 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.

Our intention with the Toybox is to offer our loyal backers the chance to be the first people outside Playtonic to try out Yooka-Laylee’s core mechanics, and we’ll also be gathering your feedback on stuff like controls, cameras and movement.

We know there are likely plenty of questions currently gestating in your collective craniums, so have a butcher’s at the bumper-sized FAQ we’ve supplied below. And enjoy!
