Yogventures, an ambitious video game project helmed by a group of YouTubers called The Yogscast, raised over $567,000 back in 2012 to make what they called “the game you’ve always wanted.”

Last week, the developers of Yogventures announced that they had cancelled the game, and that backers would not be getting refunds. So what happened? Where did the money go? Let’s break it down.

Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.

Amanda Elizabeth Joseph

Amanda Elizabeth Joseph is an artist hailing from Fort Wwayne, Indiana, USA. There truly is a kind of disgusting beauty and revolting tenderness to Joseph’s paintings…nasty skin infections and herpes-like sores made of glittered sequins and ruby jewels. Kiss me

Joesph’s careful rendering of the imperfections of the skin (pimples, acne, skin blemishes and discoloration, etc.) is what adds that little cherry on top that successfully compliments the odd and colorful skin diseases that adorns the subjects’ skin in her series.
