Important: Read if you pledged to Patreon through Paypal

Hey guys, I just got an e-mail from Patreon; it ends up that Paypal threw a hissy fit over Patreon allowing the use of Paypal to support adult projects. As a result, if you pledged to support Breeding Season via Paypal the pledge may not go through. Make sure that if you used Paypal to contribute that you cancel the pledge and switch to a different payment option.

I sincerely apologize to anyone who wanted to pledge money but will now be unable to due to this. Unfortunately, this is just another instance of Paypal screwing over adult indie projects.

We're still in the process of looking into other ways to accept donations from people who can't/don't want to use a credit card.

As for good news; we're still set for our update tomorrow for those who have contributed at least $1 through Patreon, though everything that will make it in isn't nailed down quite yet. Expect it late in the day (if you're East of Chicago you might be getting it on the 31st).You'll see most of Shwig's sexy new UI, though not quite all of it yet as it is still a work in progress. You'll also get a few random encounters, with dialog choices and special rewards, as well as a couple neat new consumable effects, and you'll meet a couple new characters. There's also a few bug fixes and balance changes; consumables are generally much stronger. For those of you who didn't pledge on our Patreon, you'll have access to this update on the 6th.

    2. Patreon supports only Paypal or Stripe. Paypal is not usable, Stripe doesn't have my country in country list.
      Too bad I cannot support BS right now, maybe later I'll have a possibility to thank him for this nice game materially.

    3. True, but most of them can send to any email address you setup with an account, so they could set up an account *outside* of patreon, and people without another option could support that way, internationally.

    4. Ugh, this way is too convoluted for me, I doubt I manage to pass through it with my current english knowledge...
      If H-Bomb just posted his visa/mastercard card number (I believe he has one), It would be much easier to transfer him some donation until any other convenient donation method to be found.

      And what about Kickstarter? If I remember right, there was no adult content restriction there. Though I wonder if there is appropriate pledging functional there...

      Delete
    5. Actually, kickstarter does not allow adult content i think.. There is http://offbeatr.com/explore but they are really crooks, they take about 30% of the funding as a fee.

      No one can post their Visa / MasterCard number... That would just result in theft... But i think maybe you *meant* post a bank wire transfer number, which is possible... But, once again, most banks also will not do business with any adult projects.

  2. I think it would be nice if it would be possible to have various sex scenes with the NPCs and the shopkeepers too. And there needs to be MORE anal sex!

    1. Pretty much all of the NPCs will eventually have a sex scene.

      Granted, you probably won't be seeing these for a while.

  3. As someone who ends up supporting a lot of adult projects... fuck paypal

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yeah, paypal is convenient, but they are assholes.

    I hate them, but use them for recurring payments, only.

    I went ahead and switched pledge over to Visa card.

  5. Will there be some new and redefined sex animations in this Update?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sadly there's no new sex animations in this update.

      However, the next update after this one (about two weeks from now) will be focused on them in particular.

      Delete
    2. question can you let people continue on after winning or add a way to take 1 creature with you to the next version to where you dont have to completely restart or add ways tp gop tp the forest where beast girl lives and a way to go to persons elf castle to make them readily avaliable also have a ranch upgrade that allows a maximum of 10 pets in each building(note all of these would make the game better and people happier) also fix the harpies and cow girls to where they can actually have futa's plus if your gonna have a dogxmale elf/dogxhorse then make a dogxdog animation ..... i mean seriouslyt dogs are starter type so it makes more sence to go dogxdog first not dogxeverything else

  6. I am interrested in other ways for donations, I don't have right cards for internet payment.
    Could be possible to install a gsm payment?

    And a little question : Do you keep the neoteny monsters in the game? It's these monsters I prefer :)
    Thanks for this great game Harista and S-Purple!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I prefer those as well, I think that if you have the neoteny and futa options checked, their drop rate on monsters should be higher, cause i went 2 1/2 months once without seeing either of them while i had it checked.

      Delete
    2. Also, monsters that are both neoteny and futa often act as one or the other, not both. will that eventually be fixed?

      Delete
    3. yes the neoteny gonna be still on the game thanks to panteon, but fucking paypal being complete asshole because they dont wanna take any kind of risk

      Delete
  7. God fucking prudes. Bet out 50 quid that if your game was about eviscerating babies they would not have batted an eyelid. But some nice stuff centered around the human mating process. Oh that's clearly going to corrupt us all!

    Ever get the feeling that the guys that make these laws pretty much never get laid? Or if they do it's to some shrew.

    1. This is almost exactly what I was going to say. At least I was able to switch to Stripe.

  8. idk if it's possible or not but i use paysafe method a lot, It's even better than paypal imo

    ReplyDelete
  9. You need to edit the name to S-Purple.

    That and I'm curious as to how long releases will be held to donator-only. I'd like to take a look at it before I start giving you money. Sorry, it's just that I've seen too many crowd-funded things go wrong and ever since I saw how Minecraft turned out after getting into the beta way-back-when I'm really wary to support things that are in development.

    ReplyDelete
  10. nvm about the continue afterwinning thing it was a really long wait scene to continue

  11. I really don't understand why Paypal has a problem with this adult game. They allowed people to pledge money for a different adult game called Mogi Origins. I'm not seeing how this is any different.

    1. well mogi origins is not using it the paypal for his game he is tricking paypal with another sfw and using the maoney for mogi

  12. Are you guys ever going to ditch the awful bone-tween shit the LoK engine is infamous for in favor of more traditional animation?

    1. It's gonna be a while buddy, you probably want to come back in about 15 hours.

    3. 15 hours is another 8 hours from now

    4. Darned timezones.

  14. Congrats on 3,000 $ :)

  15. Can't wait to see what comes out now that they can commit more time to it. ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well, this release won't be that release; maybe the next one. They've only had this full-time pledge level for a couple days, and now with the paypal rigmarole they might not be able to count on some of that, either. They have to make sure they can actually pay the bills before quitting day jobs or anything, so I bet they're still working two jobs (one for someone else, one for BS) right now.

    1. I think they literally just hit 3k today. So yeah, it's probably safe to assume they'll need a bit of time to adjust and make sure they've got the support that is being advertised.

      At least it's moving forward (and rather quickly compared to other stuff)

      Delete
    2. This is entirely understandable. No one should want them to risk their livelihoods during this transitional period. I have been critical of BS before but this isn't a reason to be it's just cautionary common sense. I too however will be expecting the update after this to kick ass provided nothing goes wonky in the mean time.

      Delete
    3. whatever, it'll probably be up around 11 PST like it usually is

      Delete
  17. Congratulations on hitting the $3000 mark guys! Did I hear something about an update in the near-ish future?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Bahh still no update... 15 hour passed :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. What if we just pledged now? Do we still have to wait till the 6th?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sorry to leave a comment on such an old post but I need some advice; I'm working on an adult game too (my very first game, in fact) and I'm looking to start a Patreon. Can you still use Paypal to receive the donations or do you need an alternative too?
