Team17 and Playtonic Games are celebrating a year of Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, which released on the 8th of October last year for PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. Aside from a well-deserved birthday cake for Yooka and Laylee, Playtonic has created a special comic strip to commemorate the occasion, featuring an original story in the universe of the colourful duo.

Throughout this week Playtonic has been sharing pages of a brand new comic strip via their social media channels, telling the story of a mysterious fire in the forest that disturbs Yooka and Laylee’s gaming time.

Veteran games artist Kev Bayliss, who worked on both Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair and the original Yooka-Laylee, has produced the comic strip, which reintroduces Trowzer the Snake, Rodney the Blamphibian, and other characters from the series.

Playtonic is also sharing highlights from the speedrunning community playing through the 2D platformer as well, which has been a hit with speedrunners since it launched 12 months ago.

To top it all off, Yooka and Laylee can also be seen in some special artwork celebrating the birthday of the game with their very own cake.
