Ever since the initial announcement and hype of Yooka-Laylee, it seems that new information on the upcoming title has been difficult to come by. No doubt this means that Playtonic is hard at work, polishing up what will hopefully be a glorious homage to the great N64 platformers of old. Of course, this project is being worked on by former employees that had a hand in the development of titles such as Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64, and it seems that the roster of Rare veterans is continuing to grow.
Playtonic recently announced that Phil Tossell, who did coding work on both Star Fox Adventures and Kameo: Elements of Power, has joined the studio on a temporary basis to contribute code to the project. Tossell cofounded Nyamyam – the studio responsible for Tengami – and it seems that he'll just be part of this in a somewhat limited capacity. All the same, it's good to see that more talent is being added to the team, and that development is progressing nicely.
