ABOUT THE GAME:
Yooka-Laylee is an all-new open-world platformer from genre veterans Playtonic!
Explore huge, beautiful worlds, meet (and beat) an unforgettable cast of characters and horde a vault-load of shiny collectibles as buddy-duo Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with the big nose) embark on an epic adventure to thwart corporate creep Capital B and his devious scheme to absorb all the world’s books… and convert them into pure profit!
Using their arsenal of special moves, our heroes will tackle a huge variety of puzzles and platforming challenges in their search for Pagies, the golden bounty used to unlock — and expand — stunning new worlds, each jammed to the gills with oddball characters, hulking bosses, minecart challenges, arcade games, quiz shows, multiplayer games… and much more!

Just head over to Epic Games Store or navigate to the game in their launcher before August 26th 2021, add the game to your cart and checkout. Simple as that. After that, the game is yours to keep, and play, forever.

Was this game free a year ago?
Sequel was, not the original game.
Never got very far in this game. Lost interest in Yooka-Laylee rather quickly. It’s kind of meh. Still worth the price of free.
I liked the 2.5D sequel much better.
I never played it. But I also have a really weird habit of having to play a series starting at the first one and moving to the next one.
Yeah, I felt that like A Hat in Time it suffers from trying a little too hard to be like something else, which the games it attempts to emulate never had to do. Both seem to have a lot of fans for the feelings of nostalgia they create but neither really rise to the level of those earlier titles IMO. But even if it only gives you 10 minutes of entertainment you’ve got your money’s worth.
I liked Hat in Time but have no desire to ever play it again. However I do have a desire to replay old school platformers like Banjo Kazooie, Donkey Kong Country 2 etc.
I enjoyed games like Super Mario Sunshine, Banjo-Kazooie and Conker’s Bad Fur Day.
Yooka-Laylee never inspired any feeling of nostalgia in me.
I made it 30-40 minutes into the game, wondered why I was actually playing it, quit and uninstalled it.
Game isn’t bad, just not for me.
