Pre-Alpha v.02 is Released!

Posted by Winterkewl Games LLC (Creator)

Hello Everyone,

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!

      @MariusErstad, assuming that would be silly since it quite clearly states beta. Also, beta is fine, because the $30 pledge get's you 2 copies of the full game and 2 beta keys.
      Also, the $30 pledge does not state "all previous."
      If people wanted alpha access they should have chosen the pledge amount that would get them alpha access. :)

      So .. if you watch down the "Pledgelist", you see that every single pledge has "All previous" written in the beginning. And you find it wierd people assume that 30$, also gets ALPHA access? Since the 25$ pledge gets it? 30$ SHOULD, by all means, recieve the Alpha. If in doubt, why?
      There is no reason people paying more, should be left out in helping the game.

      @Trevor It is still in pre-alpha. Those of us who backed $25 will get alpha access once the team has finished the features needed to roll out alpha. :)

      I need help here please, I've backed 25 dollars, and it said I would recieve alpha access... am I not? i've not gotten an email or anything... help?

    8. Michael Løwer on

      @It was stated very clearly that the $30 level would give you 2 copies of the game, and beta access, so no, you shouldn't get pre-alpha access.
      You should read what you are signing yourself up for next time.
      Nice update Kris, thanks. :)

      the $30 pledges should get in the pre-alpha becuase they didnt state when we get to play and i know im right and if we dont then this is BS

      I do hope the terrain transitions gets worked on in the future, even though the corner like transition is starting to grow on me, smooth transitions would be awesome :)

      This isn't an alpha, It's a pre-alpha.

      Is there currently an ETA for the beta?

    12. Smeggit on

      Lookin good. Just one suggestion: In the video you mention the hot bar items are selected with numbers 1-10 only and can't be selected clicking (for now). I game using a Logitech G13 keyboard and so with limited keys available it would be nice if I didn't have to reserve 10 of the keys for item selection.

      I pledged $30 - and i recon that I will recieve the ALPHA access, a full month before the closed beta?
      I does not state: "All previous" - but since $25 gets it...
      ..Am I right here?
