Hop to it

Playtonic's Yooka-Laylee reached the $1 million marker faster than any other game on Kickstarter, it has been revealed.

The campaign smashed its initial funding goal of £175,000 in less than 40 minutes, and by the end of its first full day had surged past the £1 million ($1,521,770) point. It's also "on course" to be the biggest UK-based gaming Kickstarter.

New stretch goals have since been added. The final stretch goal of £1,500,000 is still up for grabs.
