Yogventures! was a planned Yogscast video game which was cancelled on July 17, 2014, while still in the development stage. Yogventures! was headed by Kristafer Vale and his team, Winterkewl Games, until they went out of business.
On the 17th of July 2014, Yogventures! was announced to be cancelled by both Lewis and Kristafer in separate statements. All the rights of Yogventures! had been passed down to the Yogscast due to Winterkewl's bankruptcy. Winterkewl Games did not have the money to finish Yogventures!, and it got so difficult for them that it started affecting their personal lives. Just before the cancellation was announced, Winterkewl gave Yogscast £50,000 to be able to get backers their physical rewards.
Backers had been given their physical rewards, and an early access key to a game called TUG (later released as a F2P title), which the Yogscast have said, "Nerd Kingdom's game is still in alpha but is shaping up to be everything we wanted Yogventures! to be." Nerd Kingdom had been given source code, assets and designs of Yogventures!. This was for Nerd Kingdom to be able to make the most of Winterkewl's work.
Prior to the game's cancelation, Simon and Lewis uploaded many videos detailing the several updates the game underwent through development to encourage their viewers to fund the game's Kickstarter.
