Yooka-Laylee Fastest Video Game Kickstarter to Hit $1 Million

Apparently the demand for a proper Banjo-Kazooie threequel has been greatly underestimated. Although the Kickstarter for spiritual successor Yooka-Laylee launched just hours ago, it has already hit over $1,000,000 in pledges — $1.1 million in fact.

While this is undeniably staggering, what’s even more shocking is that it’s the most successful start for a video game related Kickstarter ever. The record was previously held by Tormer: Tides of Numenera, which hit the mark in seven hours.

It took Yooka-Laylee just six.

With the rate of pledges not slowing down, Yooka-Laylee has a good chance of becoming one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns ever.

Head over here to check out the Kickstarter yourself (although you likely already have).
