Turtle Sandbox and Yogscast announce partnership for action strategy game Cannon Brawl

July 22, 2014: Yogscast, home of the UK’s most-watched YouTube channels, today announced a partnership with Turtle Sandbox for their 2D action strategy game, Cannon Brawl.

The partnership will see the Yogscast broadcast a two videos on YOGSCAST Lewis & Simon this week. The videos will feature Simon assembling forces and destroying everything in his path as he does battle with Sips in the PC version of the game.

Cannon Brawl is the second game in Yogscast’s ‘YogDiscovery’ program, which supports indie developers by putting their games in front of new audiences.

Yogscast will take a small share of the sales revenue during the week after broadcast as part of the deal. Turtle Sandbox will have no editorial influence on any content broadcast on Yogscast channels.

Turtle Sandbox co-founder Theresa Duringer said: "We hope that the Yogscast broadcast will help players who were looking for an artillery based RTS find our little gem!"

Yogscast CEO Mark Turpin said: “There have been some misunderstandings about what we’re trying to do with YogDiscovery so we’re happy that Turtle Sandbox chose YogDiscovery as the best way for them to reach a new audience and grow their fanbase.

“Cannon Brawl is a quirky and fun game that they guys really enjoyed playing and if people buy through Humble Store an additional 10% will also go to charity.”
