Progress Update

Hey all, been working on getting the trait system all together. The new trait set-up is a huge improvement for me over the old one; previously adding new trait mechanics required large changes to existing code, now inserting a new trait effect into any interaction in the game requires just about a single line.

Traits WIP

After I get the new traits properly implemented I'm going to be getting the new dialog/events system set-up. I'm planning on a release complete with traits, events, and the new save system for Patrons and a public release of some of the older demo builds for Christmas!

Also, I want to give a plug to this game by Nono, one of our back-up animators. When he sent me it I was so impressed by the animations in it that I asked him to do some work for Breeding Season! Right now I'm looking at possibly integrating his After Effects style of animation into some special unique scenes:

  4. Sounds good. Also, in regards to the christmas release, I assume that means a complete, fully functional version of the game with the new system? (after which normal, content-adding updates will resume?)

    Also, any news on any other highly requested, out of game features like lists of planned features and a forum?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I won't make promises that it'll be totally complete and fully functional, but it should be much closer to that. Definitely after this update we'll start adding new content again, though.

      Planned features, the wiki, and the forums are still up in the air but I'm going to put a focus on them after the Christmas update.

      Delete
    2. Sounds good. I feel like a majority of complaints now are either about the functionality of the new build and the lack of new content, so hopefully it'll ease up after christmas.

      Considered getting a volunteer team to manage things like the wiki or forum? I'm sure plenty of fans (myself included) would be more than happy to help out with organisation, writing up wiki pages and such.

  9. H-Bomb and Co.,

    I've been sitting quietly on the sidelines for a little while now- since at least v4.8; and I have to say what a pleasure it is to see this game come together. I'm not a patron yet, but this project is on my list.

    I'll be honest: While the porn is a nice plus (I'm a fan of Mittsies), I'm more interested in the game itself; and it's been frustrating to see so many people loudly declare you and this project a "scam" because of the lack of visual updates. Even as a non-developer, I understand that you're basically re-creating the game's engine and structure from scratch, and I understand the importance of this for the game as a whole. I'm confident you're working hard, and I only ask you keep it up.

    Well, that's not completely true. I also ask that you make the game exactly how you want to make it- ignore anyone that demands your creation be what they want. If the final product doesn't suit them (or me), then oh well.

    Please don't sacrifice your creative integrity for popularity or "success".

    1. This must be one of the few rational and good suggestions I've seen on this blog.

      Delete
    2. I kinda have to disagree with that "don't sacrifice your creative integrity for popularity or success" part.
      BS is donation funded. H-Bomb kinda HAS to cater to fans/supporters to at least some degree; ignoring them and/or not putting in popularly requested/long awaited features is a sure way to lose financial backing.

      If he chose to make it completely free, than sure, but when you're relying on the whims of your fanbase and their wallets to get the job done, you do have to sacrifice some freedom to ensure you're keeping them happy.

      That being said, I'd hope that patreons don't end up completely dictating whatever is put in the game and what is given priority (patreon donated monsters and events are bad enough) and I think very few people, at least from the comment sections, understand exactly how much effort is being put into the rebuild.

      Delete
    3. @Anon7:36PM: The entire idea behind Patreon is to support content creators *specifically because* you want whatever he/they are already creating, not because you want he/they to create something you want.

      See the difference?

      And if you're using Patreon in the hopes of influencing the creator's content to make it more suitable to your tastes, then you are "doing it wrong". That being said, it is completely up to H-Bomb as to what the game will eventually be. If he feels various fan/patron suggestions would make a better game, then so be it. But if he feels pressured to the point where he believes his game would not be successful without certain elements...

      Well, I would be very sad to see that.

      Delete
    4. "And if you're using Patreon in the hopes of influencing the creator's content to make it more suitable to your tastes, then you are "doing it wrong"."

      Sooo.....Why are there "custom monster" and "custom scene" tiers, then? :P They may not be available now, but a lot of content being added to the game in the future will be completely patreon requested.
      People use things regardless of their original purpose all the time.

      Delete
    5. Ok so the thing is I don't see the game being completely "patron requested" unless a lot of people are wanting to pay $100 or $300 dollars a month and that is limited to 5 each on top of that H-bomb has hes own ideas on what he wants to do in hes game.

      Delete
    6. @Anon10:37AM: Because he's offering them, not because patrons are demanding them. This isn't hard.

      H-Bomb makes what he wants. If he wants suggestions, that's fine. If he doesn't want suggestions, that's fine, too. Either way, patrons have absolutely no ground to make demands of any kind.

      Delete
    7. I forgot to add, "...outside of what they're promised for their money, that is." If H-Bomb offers reward tiers, he'd better make good on them.

      But that's the only thing any patron can reasonably demand from a content creator.

      Delete
  10. Right now, with all this failure delaying a proper update since Halloween announcement, I think is not a good idea to add anything new until reach 5.3 content fully playable again and adding all the content that might have s-purple ready.
    Putting your shit together will be better before thinking about adding new features.

    1. Lord, when are people gonna stop bitching about this?

      Public releases being a month (or more) behind patreon updates have been a thing since the very beginning iirc.
      If releases were done at the same time for patreons and the non paying public, the team would lose a large portion of their financial backing (since it's the ONLY incentive for the $1 tier)

      Either shell out the single buck to get the releases earlier, or just put up with waiting.

    3. previous comment was missing parts, caused by tiredness.

      given how often replies of this kind descend into "you're not paying so fuck off" which is entirely unreasonable. everyone is allowed an opinion, and the opinion "punishing people into paying you is mean" is a very reasonable one, so thank you for not going that route.

      also i would like to direct you to TiTS by fenoxo, "pay to get updates as they occur, or wait for a while and we will update the free one", but he keeps the free and payed versions somewhat close comparatively.

      Delete
    4. So some/many/a lot of non-backers complain about the lack of free content and when he releases free content they complain. Guess the saying is true, "you can't make everyone happy".
      H-Bomb and Co. had to make a decision: do the thing for free and somehow pay bills, make it the way it is right now or make it completely paid and non-payers get whatever a few nice payers might throw their way.
      Taken that into account, you have 3 options here:
      1. State your opinion that non-paying people should get the same stuff as paying people, hope for it to happen (which will not) and then never come back because of a deep hatred towards H-Bomb for not giving his work away for free the moment he made it
      2. pay 1$ a month and get the stuff as soon as he releases it.
      3. Put up with the system, wait 1 month and accept that people who give H-Bomb money get his work a month earlier than people who give nothing he could pay his bills with

      Delete
    5. We are getting the full game for free in time you just need to wait or pay 1$ a month so you don't need get upset we are going to be one or two steps behind patrons that's the price we pay.

      Delete
    6. Waiting is one thing. Demanding credit card even for the paypal option in patreon system is another one. Finally...How the fuck we are supposed to be happy with that shit called a demo?! What will public get? Some menus!! And devs introduce it as some kind of christmas gift?!

      Patreons gets shity demo - hurr durr, this shit are just menus!
      Public gets the same shity demo as a christmas gift - patreons demands public to be happy
      F*CK LOGIC!!!

    7. I dunno; seems pretty solid to me.

    8. H-bomb made it pretty clear that this may not be at 100% so it may be a complete update maybe 80% no one can really say for sure at this point but he will try to get it functional.

      Delete
    9. That "maybe not 100% functional" part is said according to new patreon version. As for public it will be release of "some of the older demo builds" which we can be 100% sure that it will be 0% functional.

      Delete
    10. The thing is no one really knows until we get it so don't get you're hopes but don't get upset about it ether we will find out on Christmas only after that you can go crazy or not its up to you.

      Me i'm just happy were get something.

      Delete
    11. Stop being a whiny kid buddy. Either manage to pay 1$ per month to get access to builds immediately or have some patience, you can't have it both ways. Or don't do either and pirate it from some site, it's no big deal. Stop complaining about free stuff, that's ungrateful and brattish.

  13. Does anyone know something about the development of new m/m content? New events or even the missing animations between monsters, it's all fair game. I haven't seen nothing about it neither in the blog nor in S-purple's tumblr.

    I'm asking this because I'm thinking about contributing to the game, but m/m is really important to me, so in the case there's no prospects for such pairings in the close future, I'm not sure if I should contribute or not.

    PS: I don't know nothing about the new builds that haven't been publicly released yet, so if there's new m/m on it, it would still be novelty to me.

    1. Game menus have no gender, so you can't say if it is m/m or f/m or anything else. Next public release will be only menus so don't get too anxious.

  14. Will you be getting another Wiki?
    I understand that it has been down for a few months now but, it really helped me figure some of the game out.
    I'm also not sure if you have to pay for the Wiki site or not but, I was just wondering.

    Twin-tails as a hair style maybe??? ^-^

  15. I thought I should let you know that patreon has changed their Community Guidelines: http://www.patreon.com/guidelines
    "Patreon is not for pornography, but some of the world’s most beautiful and historically significant art often depicts nudity and sexual expression. Because of that, we allow nudity and suggestive imagery, as long as it is marked NSFW. Think of the policy as allowing “R Rated” movies… but not porn. In keeping with our strong commitment to safety, we have zero tolerance for content that sexualizes children in any way."

    3. Does that mean Neoteny is shutdown?

    4. @Anonymous12:20AM: Also, the fact that it's a legitimate game and not just a sex simulator should be more than enough.

    5. I think its labeled as NSFW and you need to be over 18yrs old to be a patron (I think) for it the only thing I've seen is some nude pic's and some suggestive imagery by the way I'm not a patron.

      Now as for the Neoteny i'm not sure but if he needs to scrap it then he'll have to in order to save the project but I'm thinking as long as H-bomb explains to them what the game is (again) then he should in the clear.

    4. Sure.
      Let me quote it:

      Pornography is not allowed on Patreon. “Pornography” is defined as material designed with the sole intention of eliciting sexual arousal.

      Unless you're the odd asexual and masochistic duck that plays BR for the number grind I think all the penises, bodily fluids and penetrations that make your dick hard count as "pornography".

      Delete
    5. But it's not simply pornography, is the thing. It's also a pretty interesting, fun game.

      "You are mistaken, officer! It's not simply murder, it's also a pretty interesting, fun game.

      Unless you're the odd maniac and psychopath that stabs people in the chest with knife only to kill, I think all the swinging and number of stabs count as a "game"".

      There's no matter how much praises you want to sing to your favorite game - if it's pornography, IT IS pornography. Deal with it.

      Delete
    12. Well, considering how much effort is going into the actual game instead of just making it an outright porn SWF, I think it's safe to say even H-Bomb doesn't see it as "just porn".

      Good enough for me.

      Delete
    13. No shit, Sherlock, it's obvious H-Bomb doesn't see it as "just porn" - he sees it as a hen, that lays golden eggs. Hence the delays that we are experiencing right now.

      Damn right! I don't see that killing that dude that was trashed into the sewer as "just porn", but also as a message to his friends that they shouldn't have taken too long with their debt. But, you know, local authorities may have another opinion.

      No matter how much you try to sugarcoat things and what delusions you have, facts will remain the same. And don't you even dare comparing THIS to art. This is a neat game, indeed, but no way in hell it can be called an art.

I genuinely want to know, but I wasn't prepared to actually write an email to the Patreon team containing multiple paragraphs of text - I assumed I'd be provided with a link to an official statement quickly if I asked for clarification here. Turns out there's no official source on the topic and I still don't want to write that email.

    1. It doesn't really, the language is very unprecise, probably intentionally so, and no hard conclusions can be made from it either way. If Breeding Season is considered pornography or even "damaging to children" is up to Patreon in the end.

    2. Its photographic pornography that's banned not artwork Drawn, animated, and so on is still good but no real life models.

      The patron page has NSFW content on it you can't see as its labeled for patrons only you must become a patron to see it.

    3. Where is the source, something like an official statement by Patreon? As it stands you are just saying something _you_ think, or something that a few guys in this comment section agreed on. The fact that the Breeding Season's Patreon page still has NSFW content on it doesn't indicate anything about Patreon's stance on Hentai.

    4. Fluffdragons and/or Alarunes
    5. A host of new animations for the male breeder, plus some for the female.

    1. Sadly the FAQ I think was on the wiki but it got shutdown.

      The debug codes are pretty much cheat codes like more money higher birth rate perfect states etc.

      Now as for tier bonuses $100 dollars a month you can add a event with dialog choices,custom sex animations also and it may take some time for it to come back but you can get the $300 dollar tier you can put an idea for a monster you would like to be in the game with breeding and harvesting animations.
