Early on, the Bendy devs worked with a firm that was described as "overzealous" in removing fan content. However, TheMeatly revealed in 2023 that this was no longer the case, and that as long as the game was marked as unofficial and wasn't attempted to be sold, he was okay with fangames based on Bendy being made. In response to this, Game Jolt added a "Fangames" section to their Bendy series page.
