Welcome Fleet to the Team!

My mind is just completely blown by the fact that the Breeding Season Patreon has now managed to reach $20k/month! If you had told me that we would reach this point when I first started this project there is no way that I would ever have believed you, but here we are and it is all due to you guys and your extreme generosity! You guys rock, and the amount of support you've shown us is awe-inspiring; more than ever I want to fulfill every last bit of potential that Breeding Season has and make it into the game that you guys deserve!

On a related note, I want to welcome Fleet onto the Breeding Season team! Fleet is the first dedicated Flash developer we're adding to the team, and along with aiding in the art asset import/set-up process he'll be helping me tidy up the messy, messy code-base to make our ability to deliver content way more efficient. Fleet will help us fix one of the biggest bottlenecks we've been struggling with, and over the next month or two I foresee a very big increase in the amount of content we put out!

I also wanted to let you guys know that we're currently talking to two very talented artist/animators who are interested in contributing to the project; I won't name any names until things are all worked out, but I will say that there's a good chance you might be familiar with some of their work already.

Also, since I'm sure you guys are dying to know by now: I'm planning on releasing the next update late on the 23rd. There's a chance that will spill over to early on the 24th, but I'm trying to prevent that. Sorry about having the updates squished together at the end this month. I'll be putting up 5.2 for patrons and releasing 5.0.1 to the public.

5.2 will be relatively small: expect a couple of animations, an event or two, and some bug fixes/cleaning up of earlier animations (futauruses will definitely be fixed up). We have much bigger things planned for 5.3, at the very least you'll see Seraphs in-game and a few new animations, beyond that it's a little early to say but we have some things we've been working on that should be going in within the next few updates.

Finally, I thought I'd leave you with some new art from S:
This is Inquisitor Darkholme. Some particularly devious Inquisitors have made names for themselves by seducing unwitting victims into attempting to violate Imperial mandates of chastity and decency, and then betraying and arresting them when they fall for their traps. Darkholme is the undisputed master of this style.

 To monsters, not having sex is akin to starvation. As such, the idea that there're humans who aren't having sex or are even entirely celibate is a matter of great concern to certain compassionate monsters. Out of pity for these poor humans, a band of demonic monsters have formed a charitable organization known as the "Fuck the Humans Foundation" based around bringing sex to humans in need. Unfortunately, for some reason people seem to keep getting the wrong idea about their noble mission.

By the way: the one on the left is a Semen Demon.

Merrith is the loyal butler (butt-ler?) of the Marquis and Marchioness. She's actually one of the oldest elves alive, and has served the Marquis' line for generations upon generations. She is rather uptight and a bit stuck in the "old ways" of the elves, but she takes great pride in her ability to serve.


And, finally, here's a peek at a scene that I know a lot of you are looking forward to:

  4. If the breeder is male or futa in the future will we be able to fuck the Marchioness instead of being fucked by her.

    1. Pretty sure the other two breeders can fuck her instead of her fucking you.

  5. You know, I think I would gladly be arrested if it meant getting to bed Darkholme up there. *A*

    Or does he put the handcuffs on before the fun begins?

    ReplyDelete
  6. I like it i did notice that the Marchioness has testicles now but the other futa's don't is this because of her heritage and if so does that make her a pure futa? I was also thinking will there be other civilization's in the world of Breeding Season besides the Empire,Feral tribes and the elves there must be right? One last thing will we be getting a state menu you know that will tell us how much progress we have got done also list of monsters,n.p.c's,and places we have been to and meet as well as a relationship status is with N.P.C's some then like that maybe?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The Marchioness is actually a powerful genital mage (junkomancer?) and can transform her bits at will; growing testicles is the least of her powers.

      The world of Breeding Season is pretty vaguely defined; there's definitely much more out there than just the nations/factions you've been introduced to, and there's other powerful gods/goddesses besides for Order and Chaos who have their own followers and minions. To be perfectly honest, most of it we haven't even thought about yet, and I like keeping it open so that we can go in any direction and introduce whatever neat/wacky shit we want over time :P. In the little corner of the world you've seen in the game so far, though, the Empire is the only real power that matters, and they haven't faced any real military threat from anything except monsters and the odd rebel faction for thousands of years. They don't really engage in much diplomacy with other nations either; everyone on their radar knows to stay out of the Empire's way or is dealing with their own problems.

      As for the status menu; sure, the UI is due for an overhaul anyway, so we have room to make additions to the status menu.

  7. Since the monsters have intelligence, does that mean that we can talk to our monsters in the future?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I figure they're kinda like Pokemon, being able to understand the breeder but not being able to talk back.

      Delete
    2. Most monsters are capable of learning to speak but have no interest in learning how.

      They're a little single-minded.

  9. welcome fleet, bigger team, generally leads to faster more diverse production. glad to see this happening.

  10. As a person who asked for this as my tier reward, I'm feeling pretty awesome about this. Huge kudos to H, S and the whole gang working to bring this kind of thing to fruition.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Welcome to Fleet! And, oh my god, I'd kill for an event where Darkholme tricks/seduces the breeder and you get an option for whether to fall for it (and enjoying ensuing animation but pay a fine of some sort) or not (for people who aren't interested) ... Or just anything with him in it. He's perfect. By far the most attractive NPC imo (not that there's a huge amount of male NPCs /cough /cough)

  12. Any news on when/if the monster stats system update is coming?

    1. It is definitely still coming. I want to put it in by the 31st but whether I can or not is another matter. I would say there is a 30% chance of it being in the 31st update.

  15. "here's a peek at a scene that I know a lot of you are looking forward to:" implying that everyone is into futa thing fetish -_-

    last update was filled with detailed futa animation (futa elf x catgirl) and new one will also have it? that's not cool for those who wants to see finally good quality hetero sex animations not some wonky/unfinished/rushed trololol animations

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. oh and yeah "(futauruses will definitely be fixed up)" .... thanks for forgetting about fixing the catgirl x elf male (sex doll/plank with thin dick) animation...

      this game totally should be renamed to Futa Season because it looks like they focus and work mostly on this TRAIT (yes it's fucking trait and they doing most stuff for it like it was main thing in this game)

      Delete
    2. You are right, it's awesome isn't it? Now fuck off, this game obviously isn't for your refined sexual palates ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) and _obviously_ will never be, because the post didn't just mention 3 potential new hires, 2 of whom will be relatively well-known graphic artists. The only route this could _possibly_ take is adding dicks to every single female character and an additional one to males as well, just to make sure ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). Stop being dumb, it's unsightly.

      Delete
    3. I appreciate you sticking up for us, but there's no reason to get nasty. We can have this discussion without needing to insult or disrespect each other.

      We're well aware that not everyone is into futa content, and our aim is to provide a wide variety. This does not mean, however, that update-to-update everyone is going to have their tastes catered to, and just because we focus on any particular fetish for a string of updates does not mean that every update from now is going to do that; please be patient.

      The main reason for the focus on futa content recently is because we're in the process of fulfilling animation and event requests from donors who have contributed significantly towards the game. When you consider that they're a huge part of why the game even exists and how we can even afford to continue updating and growing our team I think you'll agree that completing their animation requests as quickly as possible is only fair.

      As for unfinished hetero animations; they will absolutely be cleaned up/improved along with the others. Just because I mentioned the futaurus specifically (as many have been asking about fixes for the current issues with it) does not mean that's the only thing we're focusing on.

      Delete
    4. ""here's a peek at a scene that I know a lot of you are looking forward to:" implying that everyone is into futa thing fetish -_-"

      No, it is SAYING that a lot of people are looking forward to it. A lot does not mean everyone... It means many, which is accurate in this case. Not everyone... Just a lot.

      Delete
  16. I hope that the stat overhaul would be the main focus of the 5.3 because the stat system right now is really unfair in where even if you get the upgrades, the client system ASSUMES that the old stat system (where it grows gradually) is still in place.

    2. Great idea!
      There should be some sort of side-story with the Marchioness.

      Delete
  19. Is there any possibility in the future for requests from the known characters, for example roxie requests a buttstallion with a higher requirement than usual requests and as a reward for completing it you get a better relation with the character or a scene perhaps?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hmmm... I would assume that if team BS chose Fleet to be the fourth team member for the expressed purpose of expediting the flash animation process, they must have a pretty impressive flash animation resume. Unfortunately, Fleet is such a generic name that I couldn't readily find a blog (or similar) which showed their talents. Is there any chance anybody here knows where i could check out some of their work? Much appreciated!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't recall if Fleet has any publicly available work. Along with his resume he sent me some things he'd been working on for a private project and I was impressed and determined his skill-set was a really good fit for the position we needed to fill. He ain't "famous" like the rest of us :P.

      I can say he's been doing great so far! I've been having him implementing facial expression set-ups, so more of the animations will have a lot more personality to them.

    2. Yea, you're not wrong. But I mean even the animations are super janky. I dunno, seems like the devs have a lot to learn. I say this coming off 8+ years of dev exp. No flash though.

  22. Will there every be a food mechanic? I understand they eat each others semen, but that cant be a healthy way for a monster to live. Also you have said the breeder will be able to be futa, does this mean it will just be a female looking male char in the senses of all the sceens will be your char fucking said monster/npc or will it be up to choose on which way it goes? (That could always be said for male chars taking it from male/futa monster/npc)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. ...This is a fantasy game, I'm sure they're fine just eating semen alone... Adding food seems sort of pointless, when there is already a feeding mechanic with the harvestables.

      Delete
    2. Unless the food is a cock pepper or a tit apple or some shit, that make the dick bigger or smaller, tits bigger or smaller. Or a cucumber to add another dick or increase potency or quantity( for those that love messy or stomach bulge) ;D

      Delete
    3. Monsters don't need food cuz magic.

      That said, we have some vague ideas about adding in some actual food/cooking/maybe even plant growing but it's really far down the list.

      There will definitely be some consumables that aren't harvestable from monsters and have to be bought/found.

      As for who penetrates who in animations: it will differ from pairing to pairing, though if there's multiple animations for that pairing you'll be able to pick who's on top by picking them first in the breeding menu.

  24. Is there a possibility for us to turn on/off futa with balls?Not just for the machioness but for every futa compatible monster. Like in the zone flash games where you can turn off and on the clothes of the character being fucked.

    Because while I love futa, futa with balls is a major turn off for me. On the other hand I can understand this will require more work on your part, but maybe as a potential feature in a future update once you got most major stuff done?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This is possible; the option probably won't be available immediately, but I'll try to put it in eventually. At some point I'd like to have a lot of specific options available so you can really pick and choose what content you do and don't want to see.

      Delete
  25. Are the monster and semen shops going to have there own back drops, like the guild has? It'd be pretty funny to go into Kay's shop, with her at the counter, asking "whadda ya buyin/whadda ya sellin?" as opposed to "buy/sell"

  27. Happy birthday to me! (24th)
    Good work so far. It is far from perfect but seeing that it is constantly being improved it amazing to see. Keep up the good work!
    To be honest I do hope this game adds a more balanced economy to the game. Sometimes I play for hentai, sometimes I play because it is part economy game.
    If I continue to see improvement I will donate for sure. The coming months will tell me what I need to know.
    The guild and cleaning up a few other aspects of the town are needed.

    "There's a chance that will spill over to early on the 24th, but I'm trying to prevent that" try? no, you will prevent that because you're being paid a ridiculous amount of money to do so!

    i work my ass off every day and i don't even get that in a year, and quite frankly these updates you're putting out could be finished within a day or two if you actually put some effort in.

    i think you guys seriously need to step your game up...

    2. Look dude, these guys didn't ask for 20k a month to make this game, they allow people to play it for free, and they have as of this moment 4 members. These updates take time for many reasons, you can't really expect these guys to work around the clock because that would not be right. There are many stages that go into this and often things don't go they way they are supposed to and content becomes buggy, and rather than release it then in there i'm sure they would rather get it fixed than release it sloppy if possible. I'd rather them take their time and deliver quality than pump out useless quantity.

    4. If they work 80 hours a week, they're only making around $15.00 per hour. That's a pretty standard job for lower middle class people, if very low middle class. If they work less, they'll be making the same amount of money, so their hourly wage goes up.

      Hopefully the content starts picking up once he finishes all the business bullshit and gets into a groove with his new team members.

      I pretty much agree with you, but give it some time before jumping on him. If it doesn't pick up pretty dramatically within the next couple weeks, then jump on him. :P

  33. Hi

    The public release is for today ?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yes it should come today. AnonymousAugust 24, 2014 at 7:54 AM they may do it kinda slowly but be thankful that it is a FREE game. They never planned to make so much money, but people liked their ideas, their game and thats why they help them with money. When they get more skilled the releases and updates should come faster and with higher quality work. Also they are human, they need to rest or go out for a walk in the city, eat, sleep. Patience! I am looking forward for this game. It can be trully epic!
