Playtonic Games, a new studio formed by six veterans of Banjo-Kazooie developer Rare, has announced its debut game, “Project Ukulele,” which it says will be a “worthy spiritual successor” to the platforming adventures of Rare’s past.
In the latest issue of Edge Magazine, the studio says it has funding for the title, but would like to work with a publisher if it is mutual. The game is planned for release on Steam Early Access and consoles.
“Over the coming months we’ll reveal more about our project and future growth plans, and we very much intend to get you involved and listen to your views on our game’s direction,” a post on Playtonic’s official website reads. “You’ll ultimately shape the destination of our project and we plan to continue exchanging sweet glances across cyberspace at you until we get there.”
