Pretty much being around the 3 year mark sense my original idea's for the game, and roughly 6 months into the new work i'v done sense i'v hit the restart button on the project, I'm highly thinking of locking away this project in a vault, or at least reducing it down to nothing more then a simple NSFW game (No story, other context, or extras). I'll at least give/try to explain in a short fashion, so as not to make too big a wall of text.
When the project first came to light, it was shortly after I had posted my first NSFW game "A Night to remember". After gaining so much great feed back, I wanted to make another one of much better, and higher quality. Thus BSP was born. For it' first few moments, It changed story and characters, and took some time getting some VA's (Which would make this game more unique). I had found my VA's, and even got recordings of the first set of lines. in the first two and a half years, i'd had VA recordings, some animations, and some Story mode animation. At the 2.5 year mark, I had not had that much done in reality. The first year I started the project, I was graduating collage, and did not realize how much of my time went into that, instead of the other arts and BSP project. When I graduated collage, and went back home, I needed money to pay for rent. I tried the Patreon route, but that failed as I was unable to get the funds I needed on a monthly based, so I focused on commissions for the most part, making it really hard to work on the project. When I finally got the job, I wasn't in much of a need for commissions or Patreon, and thought I would have more focusing time to work on the project.
After laying out what I had at the 2.5 year mark, I was not too happy with what I had already. The animations were alright, but story felt thrown together, the interface was a mess, and in general was not turning out the way I wanted. I hold high quality standards, and the first set of work was not holding up to that. As you may remember, I made a post about me hitting the reset button near the middle, or end of July (Which you can find here

2 months after that announcement, I begin the new work. I redid the script. The story. The planned interface. The layout, timeline, fap scenes, added scenes, and all sorts of things. What I managed to due in the roughing stages turned out much better then what I had before, and was up to what I envisioned for the game. Fast forward to now. 6 months into the new work. Making the roughs I have now was a battle. Much like it was in the first 2.5 years of this project, every time I have the drive to work on the game, work or life or other gets in the way. And when I have the time to work on the game, I don't want to work on it at that point. It took me a long time just to rough out the story mode for this game (Which I didn't have much of one at the start before the reset). And I have more detailed fap mode sections and buttons as well. I'v even been messing with flash, but it's pretty much giving me a middle finger. It's not working with me. My quality standards are too high, and I don't think Flash what i'm asking it to do. I think i'm just getting tired of trying to make this game at the moment. Every time I want to make the game, something else pops up that gets my attention. It feels like i'm beating a dead horse here.
With the other people I invited to help with this project, they just aren't as interested as first started. I could look for others to replace them, but at the same time, I kinda want to give it a rest on certain parts of the game if I choose to continue in some way. It looks like one of two things will happen.
1.) I cancel the game, and call it a huge fail (Though I could always lock it up, and work on it (Or re-attempt on a much later date))
2.) Continue the game, but have it only be "Fap Mode". Would just be like any other normal sex game. No story. No extras. No context. Just two ponies having at it with the click of a few buttons.
But really, option 1 is sounding pretty good. I'v tried, but I have other arts I want to do. Arts I owe people. Just, other things.
I really do feel like I have failed you guys, and I am sorry for having you wait on me for so long. Many have supported me in this, but with failed patreon attempts in the past, things always getting in the way when I want to work on it, or set dates, I just can't seem to win when trying to work on this project. Maybe there's still a chance i'll give it another go (Maybe like end of year, or next year kind of thing), but I think i'm just going to end it here for now.
If you want to unfollow me, or give me hate, feel free. I probably deserve it. For those who I said i'd get you physical rewards, I can't even afford it, nor is there a point if there is no game to be had.
I have failed, and hope you guys don't hate me much for it. . .
