Quotes

"We're kind of just feeling it out right now," he admits. "If we want it to be something that's supported by a paid staff on hand to deal with it, we're going to need to be paid something. I think that would be something where, if a game is a huge hit, we'd be able to share in that in some way, but not have it be ticking a box upfront. We don't get any of their Kickstarter money. We don't take a chunk of their funding."
" In the end we negotiated that $150,000 would be transferred to the Yogscast with the understanding that they would use that money exclusively to create and ship all the physical rewards, AND they would help hire the main programmer that we still didn't have on the project" Vale wrote
...inexperience caused some problems in the development," said Vale, who has been commendably honest about the reasons for Yogventures' cancellation. "We had no way to force that person to pay back any of the funds and it was a bitter lesson to learn. Always get every possible scenario in writing or you will have no legal recourse."
Kent Byers , one of the founding members and CEO of Booster Pack commented; "We look forward to working with Cyberworld on this and other projects that we have on the table. We are very excited to have found such a great partner to assist us with such a large project and I am certain we will have other opportunities to work together on future games" said Byers
