Part hentai and part farming sim, Breeding Season was an insanely popular erotic game that according to reports was pulling in close to 50 grand a month via its Patreon. While the game is no longer officially supported, you can still enjoy this rather strange game and it is one that once you start playing, you really cannot stop. Ok, so you know the game, Harvest Moon? Well take Harvest Moon and then add in some sexy monsters, hardcore hentai and then you will have a basic idea of what to expect from Breeding Season. Look, this is a game that has some rather interesting and hot creature des and that is cool. However, I feel that there is actually more depth to the gameplay here than many other similar styles of games are offering people.
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. 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 demoralized 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.
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. It was still likely one of the biggest sex games on the internet.
There is certainly a huge demand. Japan basically has the market cornered, which is unfortunate given their censorship laws, and, honestly, kinda have an obsession with rape.
