About Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair (Free EGS Game February 4 – 10, 2022)
But what is Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair? If you were a big fan of the game Banjo-Kazooie from back in the day, then this game should be on your radar. It’s developed by Playtonic Games, which is founded by former Rare developers who worked on Banjo-Kazooie. Yooka the Chameleon and Laylee the Bat explore 2.5D levels in this game, unlike the 3D game of the original Yooka-Laylee. Fantastic 2D platformers aren’t that common anymore nowadays, so if you’re in the market for that, then you should definitely try out this fantastic platformer. If you miss yourself some Donkey Kong Country, then this is the game for you. If you’re a big fan of great level design and collectibles that will truly challenge your platforming, then Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is the game for you. Plus, it’s being offered as a free EGS game, so what’s your excuse not to play it?
If you’re not too keen on waiting, then you can grab Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair now, which is currently on sale on the Epic Games Store.
