Yognau(gh)ts, YOU HAVE DONE IT!!! We can't thank you enough! :)

Thank you! Thank you! Thank You! 

Wow! What an incredible 30 days this has been!  We feel like we've gotten to know all of you through all the comments and emails, and it's been an amazing experience, one we don't want to see end! But all things must, and this Kickstarter is Officially OVER, and WOW what a success you have made it!

You all have amazed every one of us at The Yogscast and Winterkewl Games with your incredible support! You dedicated Yognau(gh)ts have proven yet again there is literally no better group of fans in the entire world! The amount of support and well wishes we have received from you is staggering and we can't thank you enough! You have all stood up and said you'd like to not only have this game be made but participate in the process! You all have helped change the way video games get made. Instead of Very Large Publishers calling all the shots and dictating what can and can't be in a game, You are the ones that get to help call those shots! There has never been a better time to be an independent game developer than right now! And it's all because of you, and the support that you can provide to help make games that you want to play!

You have exceeded our goal by more than 225%! With this amount of extra resources we will definitely have the talent and the time to make this game the best it possibly could be! And yes, we'll contact Mr. Michael Winslow's agent and see if there's a chance to get him involved ;). Even more than that we will be able to hire more experience programmers and artists to help make this game great!

EXCLUSIVE NEWS!

We have an exciting but long journey ahead of us and we can't wait to get started! As a matter of fact we haven't stopped working on the game this entire time! As a result, we're now able to make this announcement exclusively here, so you can hear it first. . . 

Yogventures! will officially be at E3 this year! 

That's right, we've secured a place along side all the big boys and will be showing the game to the world June 5th - 7th at the Los Angeles Convention Center at E3! If you're going to E3 look for us there, we'll be the ones with the smiles permanently etched into our faces! We're going to have to work non-stop to get a demo and a trailer that we can reveal at the event but thanks to your support we're going to have the time and resources to make that happen! 

What's Next?

Keep an eye on your email we're going to be sending out surveys later in the year asking for some information from you. We'll also be using that system to make the announcement when the Forums go live sometime later in the year. Don't worry we'll make that happen ASAP, we are as anxious as you are to start the online conversations that are going to make this game GREAT! Also, The pre-orders will  remain available on our website at:

http://www.yogventures.com

Thanks!

Again, Thanks everyone from the bottom of our hearts, you're the ones that have made this game possible and we are so grateful to be able to help make it with all of you!

Yognau(gh)ts RULE!
*kiss*

p.s. sorry there isn't a video update to go along with this, we simply ran out of time and content! We'll have regular Developer Diary style videos starting after E3 where you'll be able to watch the game progress as we make it happen!

    3. Creator Rob727272 on May 9, 2012

      Congrats again on the funding guys, really great :)

      If anyone is looking for a forum to discuss the upcoming game, come and see us at http://www.planetyogventures.com/forums/viewforum.php… and say Rob727272 sent you on the introductions topic :)

    4. Creator Devin Brazzo on May 8, 2012

      when can i play?

    5. Creator Jack Wilkinson on May 8, 2012

      Awesome.

    6. Creator Elsibub on May 8, 2012

      Congrats you guys. i speak for everyone when i say that. Guys i know you are excited to share your ideas but try not to overwhelm the comment pages with them. The game will take a while so you have time to share. best wait until there is a forum for said ideas so you can post to your hearts content and where the developers can quickly and easilly find them and study them. no point shouting out a great idea if the developers have to try to remember which post they saw it on and exactly what the idea detailed. love the enthusiasm though.

    7. Creator Brennan Wright on May 7, 2012

    16. Creator Michaels Broughs on May 7, 2012

      We need some form of rail track, you aren't limited by blocks so you could make it so that the land has to be sort of even for them to work. Instead of doing full engines you could have a gary's mod inspired design system where you have a chassis of some sort then let put the engine and a belt or drive shaft on some part of the vehicle and design the body. You could put in cars and just change the train wheels to tires, suspension and other components could come in later.

    17. Creator Austin Teeple on May 7, 2012

      Hey guys! Just wanted to ask whether you will be coming to gamescom in Germany (again) this year. Would be awesome - I was there last year, but too shy to talk to Simon and Lewis and just watched them from afar. :'(
      Also, keep up the good work with the game - I'm really excited! And Congratulations on reaching your goal and more! :3 Looking forward to hearing more news!
      All the best, Yennefa

    31. Creator Scott Hudson on May 6, 2012

      Dear Simon & Lewis,

      Yogscast definitely provides the most fun game reviews. I'd love it if you two voiced some of the characters in the game! Minecraft just isn't the same without your amusing commentary. The very best of luck fellows, with all your future endeavours. Very much looking forward to playing the Beta! =o)

      *** Hope to hear your voices in the game! ***

      Many happy giggles,

      Scott (OzDracula)
