Playtonic Games, the developers of the 2017 platformer Yooka-Laylee, have released their own Super Mario Maker 2 level. The course is inspired by the latest release from the developers, a follow up of Yooka-Laylee called Yooka-Laylee and The Impossible Lair.
The developers have titled the course ‘The Impossible Layer’- another homage to The Impossible Lair. The game play mechanics of the course are also greatly inspired by the follow up title. The Impossible Lair focuses on levels that can change form which create alternate stages to play through. ‘The Impossible Layer’ course is clearly inspired by this mechanic as the course is constantly flooding with water as the player navigates it.
Playtonic have created a great level based on their own work and it would be very cool if more developers were to take a leaf out of their book. By creating this course, it shows that Playtonic are interested in changing up how they promote their games. They have found a way to promote The Impossible Lair whilst also actively engaging with the game community. Check out the level for yourself with the ID XHK-NB8-11H.
This isn’t the first time that the Playtonic team have made these Mario Maker courses either. Have a look at the video below from Nintendo Life showcasing some of their other creations.
