Developer Playtonic Games has published the soundtrack to 2017 platformer Yooka-Laylee, available for purchase through Bandcamp and Steam. Playtonic was founded by former Rare employees, intent on creating a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie.

The Yooka-Laylee game soundtrack is a collaboration between composers Grant Kirkhope (Goldeneye 007, Banjo-Kazooie), David Wise (Battletoads, Donkey Kong Country), and Steve Burke (Kameo, Viva Piñata). The 38-track album, also available for streaming on Spotify, evokes memories of classic platforming puzzle adventures, packed with whimsical compositions that perfectly complement the game’s unique cast of colorful characters.

Also on Steam and Bandcamp, the digital soundtrack for the followup Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair score sports a collection of jaunty, cheerful melodies, featuring Wise and Kirkhope, joined by Matt Griffin and Dan Murdoch. The score is complemented by a Retro Remix Soundtrack by Tater-Tot Tunes, spanning 50 tracks of nostalgic 8-bit arrangements.
