The Controversy Surrounding Sun Haven and Sun Down
The Background Story
Sun Haven is a farming and life simulation video game developed by the small studio, Pixel Sprout Studios. It was initially funded through Kickstarter in 2017, with the promise of never being released in Early Access. However, the game was eventually released on Steam Early Access in June 2019, with plans to launch the full game within six months.
Unfortunately, the game was not fully developed within six months, and it remained in Early Access for almost two years. Players have been complaining about bugs, unfixed issues, and no storyline, among other things.
Meanwhile, Pixel Sprout Studios released a new game called Sun Down, which caused controversy among the Sun Haven community. They felt that the resources used to create Sun Down could have been put into improving Sun Haven.
The Release of Sun Down
Sun Down is a survival game with the same art style as Sun Haven. It was fully released on Steam in August 2021, while Sun Haven remained in Early Access. Players felt that the studio’s resources should have been used to improve Sun Haven instead of creating an entirely new game.
The developers of Sun Haven claimed that Sun Down was created by a different team, but players were not impressed. They felt that the game studio should have focused on delivering on their promises and improving Sun Haven.
The Reaction of the Sun Haven Community
Players of Sun Haven felt dismayed, betrayed and frustrated by these developments, and took to social media and forums to voice their concerns. They were angry because they had supported the studio through Kickstarter and expected more from them.
Many players felt that the studio’s resources should have been better allocated to finishing Sun Haven instead of creating a new game, even if the new game was created by a different team within the studio.
What Does the Future Hold for Sun Haven?
Pixel Sprout Studios have since responded to the player’s concerns and stated that Sun Haven is still their primary focus. The studio claims to have hired more developers to speed up the process of finishing the game.
However, many players of Sun Haven remain skeptical and do not trust that the studio can deliver on their promises. As of today, there is still no word on when Sun Haven will exit Early Access fully and release on the Nintendo Switch, much to the annoyance of some players who backed the game during its Kickstarter campaign.
The controversy surrounding Sun Haven and Sun Down serves as a reminder of the importance of transparency and communication in the gaming industry. Players expect game studios to honor their promises and deliver the games they backed through crowdfunding campaigns.
Pixel Sprout Studios may have learned this lesson the hard way, but they still have a chance to redeem themselves by delivering on their promises and creating the game the players were promised in the first place.
