The most heavily funded game on Patreon was just cancelled. Breeding Season was described as an "unholy combination of a farming sim and a sex game" about breeding people and anime-inspired fantasy humanoids. According to stat-tracking site Pledge Societythat made it the most highly-funded video game currently on Patreon and the second most-funded project overall. So what happened? It's all very unclear at the moment, but the two lead developers are accusing one another of rather shady misdeeds. Developer Hartista "HBomb" Pipebomb not their real name wrote a lengthy post on the game's development blog accusing art director Vladimir "S-Purple" Sandler of taking the money and running.
According to HBomb, Sandler was offered a contract allowing him half of the game's revenue once other business expenses and team members had been paid, along with the rights to retain his work should he leave the project mid-development.
The idea was that should this happen, he could negotiate a new royalties agreement for the work already completed. Well, Sandler left the project, but he didn't strike a new deal.
Instead, he started a new Patreon for a very similar looking game called Cloud Meadow that featured artwork he'd developed for Breeding Season. Effectively, this would scrap the entire project as it currently stands, forcing us to start over completely from square one. There is no way the project could actually survive the process, the game is just dead, that's the end. HBomb further noted that "none of the other members want to continue on the project after this", leaving Breeding Season in utter shambles. The jilted developer then offered a cryptic threat suggesting Patreon backers should try to break into their Dropbox and leak every asset of the now dead game.
But wouldn't it be funny? Sandler, for his part, has post a blog post of his own explaining that Breeding Season had been doomed for a long time and that jumping ship to start up Cloud Meadow was the closest thing he could do to honour the wishes of the Patreon backers. Sandler said he's still penning a more detailed reply to all of the accusations leveled at him, though he stated that HBomb offered "an incomplete and misleading view of breeding season game guide situation" and that his former partner has been harassing him in wildly inappropriate ways.
