"Leaf failed to provide the requisite analytical support contemplated by the parties to enable the games to succeed in the marketplace. As only one example, Leaf has failed to provide statistics and metrics to TSG regarding all of the games that were identified for development to allow TSG to optimize the games in the marketplace and increase profitability."

"Additionally, Leaf has repeatedly issued contradictory direction and changing specifications on game development, leaving TSG guessing and without guidance on the ultimate deliverables sought by Leaf." The court filing includes more specific information regarding the game "Archer: Danger Phone".

"On October 12, 2022, Leaf directed TSG to shift the game “Archer” into 'autopilot' mode and effectively cease support and user acquisition. Archer was one of the more profitable games developed by TSG, bringing in over $1M in revenue over a 40 day period. By directing TSG to cease support for Archer, Leaf caused revenue for Archer to plummet."

"On October 13, 2022, Leaf transmitted a letter to TSG purporting to terminate the Agreement and the parties’ relationship thereunder."

"The day after sending the letter to TSG purporting to terminate the parties’ Agreement and shutting down Archer, Leaf again enabled access to the Archer game, effectively re-starting revenues for a game that Leaf now purported to claim for its own. Leaf’s actions in misappropriating Archer and cutting TSG out of any future revenue are contrary to the Agreement."

"On information and belief, Leaf’s attempt to appropriate the game that TSG developed and cut TSG out of any further revenue sharing arrangement is a calculated business strategy by Leaf designed to exploit developers for Leaf’s benefit. Leaf employed a similar strategy with the original developer for the game “Archer: Danger Phone”. "

"After completing most of the development, Leaf terminated its relationship with the previous developer and hired TSG. Leaf accomplished the appropriation of the prior developer’s work by falsely promising the prior developer that Leaf would establish a remote U.S.-based studio for the prior developer’s employees in the Boston area. After a few months, when Leaf had accumulated all of the necessary code and artwork from the prior developer, Leaf closed its Boston studio and terminated its relationship with the prior developers."
