A whole new world

Yooka-Layee's amazing Kickstarter campaign has ensured that Rare fans will be getting the next best thing to a Banjo-Kazooie sequel, but some supporters have expressed doubts about the size of the adventure, given that the game will retail for a low price and - comparatively-speaking, at least - its budget remains modest when set against the kind of money that a company like Rare - suppported by Microsoft - would have been able to provide.

However, Playtonic's Gavin Price has taken the chance to put those fears to bed, and insists that the success of the crowdfunding drive means he and his team of former Rare staffers can make a game that is even bigger than what has gone before.

Speaking during a Reddit AMA, Price said:

...The aim is, with the amazing support we've had from fans, to now make Yooka-Laylee bigger than Banjo-Kazooie.

Has this put your mind to rest, or do you continue to harbour doubts that this small but dedicated team has bitten off more than it can chew? Drop a few words below to let us know what you really think.
