Yooka the chameleon and Laylee the bat are sunbathing and enjoying life's simple pleasures when their pristine afternoon is ruined by the capitalist expropriation of the One Book - a tome which contains the power to write history. It is expropriated from Yooka and Laylee by Dr Quack, the right hand man of the game's antagonist bourgeois bee, Capital B. This sets into motion the story that will lead Yooka and Laylee, who represent the peasants and workers respectively, to attempt to topple Capital B(ourgoisie).

The capitalist expropriation of their book leads our proletarian heroes to leave their pirate-ship home in search of their class enemy. The pirate ship suggests an unrealized anticapitalist conciousness in our heroes that exists before they are given the revolutionary impetus at the game's beginning. As our heroes approach the enemy's lair, Hivory Towers, they are exposed to the incredible environmental destruction caused by capital B in the search of profits. The entire landscape is covered in toxic waste. A result of the subordination of scientists like Dr. Quack to the will of the bourgeoisie.

Unlike most collect-a-thon games, Yooka Laylee does not feature coins or other capitalist fetishes as collectables. Instead, our heroes collect writing quills and pages - useful articles which represent the accumulation of knowledge and revolutionary theory by the proletariat to make possible their ultimate conflict with the bourgeoisie. The expansion of Yooka and Laylee's knowledge is greatly assisted by the strategic alliance with Trowzer Snake, who represents the petty bourgeoisie and it's historical origin in patriarchal property relations.

The symbolism in this game goes down to the details. For example, the 'corplet security' sentinal robot enemy is modled after Microsoft's Kinect camera. The studio that produced yooka laylee is staffed by former employees of Rare games, which was purchased by microsoft and forced to produce Kinect shovelware games, instead of artistically valuable ones.

Over all, I reccomend this game to all proletarian gamers.
