Good news, platformer fans -- Playtonic Games has announced that development on Yooka-Laylee has officially been completed (or "gone gold" as the term goes).
Generally speaking, "going gold" indicates that a game has been determined by the publisher to be good enough to be shipped to stores, but Playtonic is still sticking by their previously announced release date of April 11.
Does this indicate that perhaps they'll still be working on QA testing in the meantime? We'll have to wait and see, but the early completion should give Yooka-Laylee all the time it needs to be in excellent shape for fans when it releases.
Additionally, Playtonic mentioned that Kickstarter backers will be able to finalize their platform choice for the game very soon.
