But as of yesterday, development on Breeding Season has ceased completely. The circumstances leading to the sudden closure of such a high profile sex game seem very messy, judging from a recent blog post written by a developer.
According to the Breeding Season devs, Sandler was allowed to retain all the rights to the art produced for the game right from the start of the project. This in turn has left Breeding Season in a very awkward position. Effectively, this would scrap the entire project as it currently stands, forcing us to start over completely from square one.
The Breeding Season team says that Sandler refuses to sell them back the rights to the art, and that ultimately this situation has left them too demoralised to continue working on the game. I reached out to Sandler for comment, who told me that he was currently talking to a legal advisor to figure out what he could publicly say about the situation.
One thing that both parties seem to agree on is that the development on Breeding Seasons was becoming rocky, though the particulars seem like a he said, she said situation. While the monthly contributions may seem shocking to some, truly explicit games like Breeding Season cannot find homes on typical publishing platforms, such as Steam.
The demand for sex games is still there, however, which in turn has led developers to turn to alternative platforms such as Patreon to develop their games without needing to deal with things like the ESRB. For some sex games, this circumventing of traditional publishing methods has proven to be wildly lucrative.
In the case of Breeding Seasonthe earnings were divided among a team of five people, in addition to having to for Patreon fees and taxes.
