Hello, everyone, I would like to say its good to be back here on Square Space, I have been waiting for this game to be released and that game is " Yooka Laylee". 

Story

The story of Yooka and Laylee begins on the main villain of the story "Capital B" and his vice president " Dr. Quack" created a machine to take the world's books to look for one particular that has the power to give the holder to bend the universe to how they want. Surprisingly the book wasn't too far from Capital B's, in fact, it was located with Yooka and Laylee used as a drink coaster. Suddenly After Yooka and Laylee finally got the abandoned Pirate ship  fixed up as their home the coaster ( aka the Legendary Book the Capital B is looking for ) starts floating up into the air and the duo follow the book seeing the golden ripped pages coming from the book start flying out of it as it is headed towards the Capital B's Factory. After a bit of conversation and walking into the factory they collect the first golden page (Pagie) explains him and his friends escaped from the book so they don't fall into the wrong hands. Now it's up to Yooka and Laylee to go out, search for Paige's friends and get the book back before Capital B.
