In this age of technology, data is easily accessible to everyone. Even data that is protected, or unreleased. It’s always a frustrating situation when creators have their work leaked. The Adopt Me Leaks were nothing different. Here’s what we know about the situation:
What is Adopt Me?
Adopt me is a virtual multiplayer game with a sizeable audience. The game finds our players taking care of pets, which are tradeable with other players. Adopt Me is hosted on Roblox, the gaming platform that allows users to create and play games by other users. Roblox is most famous for their “Oof” death sound, still used by several compilation creators online. The game is available to play across several platforms such as Windows, macOS, and Xbox One. Adopt Me is also available on Android and iOS.
Adopt Me is the most famous game on Roblox, reportedly being played upwards of 14 million times up to now. Released in 2017, the game has garnered a huge audience and received mostly positive reviews. The game is notorious for scams, as the target audience for the game is usually young. This, paired with the fact that in-game items have seen an exponential rise, has given rise to several scammers trying to rip off young new players. To combat this, Adopt Me has released several updates to better secure transactions, especially for rare items.
Adopt Me Leaks 2021
On Feb 27, Adopt Me! tweeted regarding the recent leaks for the game’s latest content updates. The developers were clearly disgruntled due to the situation, and rightfully so.
There seems to be a lot of confusion about what leaks mean for Adopt Me. Leaking information and assets made by our Team is incredibly disrespectful and harmful. We work hard on new updates and pets, and people who share unreleased assets are simply stealing from us.
The developers acknowledged the excitement surrounding the new content updates in the following tweet. They were, however, disappointed regarding the leaks, equating it what’s essentially theft of intellectual property.
We get it, it's exciting to see a brand new thing that's coming to the game. But we want you to be excited because we're sharing what we've been working on with you, not because someone stole our work and shared it on social media.
