Happy Birthday to Yoo… Happy Birthday to Yooooo…
Alright? It’s been a while since we’ve posted one of these here article things isn’t it? We accidentally left all of our keyboards at Playtonic HQ when we went into lockdown, so we’re dictating this through a “smart fridge”. Fingers crossed nought is lost in translocation.
Anyway, let’s get down to business. Apparently, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is approaching its first birthday! We couldn’t believe it either. Time seems to have slipped away from us like a loose grape in a “smart fridge”. Cocktail sausage.
To mark this momentous occasion we’re going to be doing a bunch of fun stuff throughout the week to celebrate a whole year of Impossible Lair attempts.
Nintendo Switch & game Giveaway!
We’ve teamed up with our explosively wormy pals at Team 17 to give you all a chance at getting your mitts on a Nintendo Switch and a digital copy of Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair! The giveaway will be going live at 4PM BST today. Find it here!
Each day, from now until the 8th October, we will be sharing a comic page made especially to celebrate Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair’s first Birthday! Lovingly created by our in-house hair icon, Kev Bayliss, join Yooka and Laylee as they attempt to solve a smokey mystery! Here’s page 1 and 2 to get you started…
Fan Art Favourites
Loads of weird and wonderful fan art has wowed us over the course of the year. We’re going to be shining a spotlight on some of our favourite pieces, with comments from the ever-enthusiastic Steve Mayles. Look out for this one on Tuesday.
Wednesday is humpday, and there’s a joke to be made about speedbumps here, (maybe we’ll come back to this and insert a joke after another coffee, if not, soz). We’re going to be hyping up the Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair speedrunning community and sharing some speedy highlights, so you can all catch up on what you may have missed – they’re a quick lot after all.
Thursday marks one year since the launch of Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. We’ll be revealing the final page of Kev’s comic, wrapping up the Nintendo Switch and game giveaway, and continuing to wax lyrical on what a fantastic community you are!
We hope you’ll check in on us throughout the week and join in on the festivities. As usual, we’ll be making a bunch of noise over on Twitter, why not come along for the ride?
