The team and I have all been working very hard to reach this milestone and we're happy to be able to deliver this update.
There have been a lot of improvements but the main thing this release adds is the very first look at character customization in Yogventures!
We promised there'd be "more than just changing skins" and to that we've held true. Many aspects of your player and non-player characters will
be customizable and this release gives just a taste of what's to come in the future releases.
We simply can not thank you enough for all of the support and patience the community has shown us during this development process!
We know it's hard enduring through missed deadlines and unplanned delays and we thank you all for sticking with us and giving us
the time we need to develop the many difficult and demanding, yet super fun features of Yogventures!
In the coming weeks we're going to be showcasing more, but for now please enjoy Yogventures! Alpha v 0.01 and if you have any
questions please send them to
We may not be able to answer each email, or fix any of the problems right away, but I promise we read each and every report and we're using your valuable feedback
to keep help shape the list of tasks we have to fix as the game development continues.
We're happy to announce that Yogventures! Pre-Alpha v0.2 has been released to the "Founders" level backers. This update fixes a fair few of the bugs already reported to us by the players. There is a long way to go with the development of this game but we're very happy to have the assistance of the backers to help us identify and prioritize the bugs! This is exactly how we'd hoped the interactions would go, we'll release a version, you the backers test it and report back to us what bugs you find and what you like and dislike about the game, then we go back and keep making changes and improvements until it gets finished!
Again we can't thank you all enough and we're now working hard on fixing bugs and adding Alpha version features. The two main features we want to have finished for Alpha is: Character Customization and Non-Cube blocks. When we have those two features in and as bug free as possible we'll release Alpha. We can't honestly predict how long that is going to take yet but soon as we have progress to show on both fronts we'll make another update and video.
In the mean time please enjoy our 8th Video Log for Yogventures Pre-Alpha v0.2! and thanks again for all your help, without the backers NONE of this would be possible, so Thanks!
ONE FINAL NOTE! The download links are in "The Cloud" and sometimes some servers don't update right away, if you download the link and you end up with the same v0.01 then please wait about 1/2 hour and then try the links again. The cloud service tells us that should be enough time to make sure all the servers get up to date files. Sorry / Thanks!
