Meet Yooka-Laylee's newest character, Kartos


‘The god of ore’

I’m not sure how many more ex-Rare staffers can pile onto the Yooka-Laylee team, but there’s room for at least a couple more. Playtonic went on a little hiring spree for its first birthday, adding environmental artist Damien Sparkes (Banjo-Kazooie, Conker, Perfect Dark), animator Gary Talbot (Banjo, Perfect Dark, Sea of Thieves), and designer Hamish Lockwood (Stealth Inc., Volume).

The studio also debuted another member of the platformer’s eclectic cast, Kartos, and an accompanying song from composer David Wise. These guys and their minecarts.
