If you're a fan of Yogscast and TUG
, you're probably happy to learn that Yogscast is going to be working closely with Nerd Kingdom
to promote the game. Of course, you might not be such a fan if you were originally a backer of Yogventures!
, the Yogscast-inspired game that very recently announced it was cancelled despite reaching double its Kickstarter goal in 2012. All of the Yogventures!
assets and code are being transferred over as well, allowing TUG
to reap the benefits of what had been done on the cancelled game.
According to the Yogscast crew, the partnership with TUG
and the distribution of serial codes are meant as an effort to make things right, although the official communication makes it clear that they are not on the hook for the game's cancellation (which might be legally debatable
). Many of the Yogventures!
backers are still very unhappy with the situation, though, as TUG
is not the game they backed in the first place. Time will tell how this shakes out in the long run, as very few Kickstarter backers are likely to be fully mollified by receiving a copy of a game they never wanted
