E-mails and Blog Comments

Yesterday, I was unavailable to answer e-mails, and so my e-mails piled up. Today, I was answering e-mails from 8:00 AM until 12:00 midnight. I didn’t even get to write any code for the game today. Just when I was about to go to bed, I remembered that I forgot to check the blog.

The blog has 103 new comments since the last time I checked.

I usually try to read every blog comment and answer every question, but I don’t think that’s going to be possible anymore. At this point, if I read and answered every e-mail AND answered every blog comment, I would have literally no spare time left over to actually work on the game.

Please, ONLY e-mail me under the following circumstances:

  • You are reporting a bug.
  • You are making a business inquiry or proposition.
  • You are a talented 2D artist, 3D artist, or 3D animator (or a programmer who specializes in the Unity game engine) who wants to volunteer to help me develop the game.

Please, DON’T e-mail me under the following circumstances:

I already have enough programming tasks to last me for months, so I can’t really afford to take on any more requests.

If you can’t get the game to run, please wait until I release another build. If you can’t download the game, please wait until I post new download links. If you can’t extract the build, it’s not my fault, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

90% of the “bug reports” I get are about bugs I already know about, and that’s very unfortunate. 100% of the people who volunteer to help me with the game are appreciated, but only 50% actually include any examples of their work.

This doesn’t mean that I intend to stop paying attention to what players are saying, or that I won’t be listening to any suggestions or feedback from this point forward. It just means that I can’t afford to keep interacting directly with the community as frequently as I have been, or else I’d have literally zero free time left for development.

There are two exceptions to the above rules:

  • You’re welcome to send me fan art, I love seeing it.
  • I’m not looking for any voice actors or voice actresses at this point in time, but if you’re a female voice actress who wants to be contacted once I am ready to include more voices in the project, you can send me your demo reel. If you don’t have a demo reel, then please don’t contact me.

On the plus side, I do have some positive news to report. All of those e-mails I’m so busy with are between me and some extremely talented individuals who are producing some absolutely amazing assets for the game, and I can’t wait to show off their outstanding work. I’m also being presented with some incredible opportunities that I never imagined would be possible for me. Despite all the doom and gloom up above, I’ve actually never been happier, and I’m really eager to share all of the exciting new progress with you guys, as soon as it’s ready!

Thanks for reading this!

  1. Hey Yandere Dev, I have some cool ideas for Yandere Simulator.

    If your Psychology is high enough, you can interact with Senpai. However, you can’t kidnap him, so if you ask him to follow you, the storage room will NOT open. If it is already open, it will close immediately after asking him to follow you.

    The Way To Win:
    If your Language and Psychology is high enough (3+ Stars) (trust me it’s hard), you gossiped enough, you sent a lot of love letters, and if your rival is blackmailed enough or the reputation is low enough while yours is high (You can lower you rival’s reputation by paying panty shots), you can write a letter to Senpai (ex. I want you to meet me under the tree behind the school at (any time after school is fine) about (whatever you want, you can choose my feelings, probably most likely) I hope you’ll be there. When Senpai meets you there, Yandere-Chan will struggle to tell him the love confession, (you will have to tap E quite fast to make her tell him.) Once you’ve done that, Senpai will think for a while. If you have stayed close to him too much over the week, he will turn you down, but says we can still be good friends. After Senpai leaves, Yandere-Chan will commit suicide and you will get the Heartbroken screen. If you don’t stalk him too much, then he will happily accept your love confession.
    Yandere-Chan will cry tears of joy, and the two kiss. They then leave the school, holding hands. The rival will then break down.

    Another Way to Win:
    An easier way to win for noobs is
    Have your Psychology high enough (Level 4)
    Make Senpai follow you after school
    Make him follow you to the blossom tree
    Confess your love! Easy, right? Yes, but I’d prefer my other ideal up top.
    Please reply! You can add this later, it doesn’t matter. 🙂

    • Oh, this too? You should be able to poison other club members dishes, BUT doing so would probably make you a suspect since you’re in the same club. Unless you sneak in and poison the food when you’re not a part of the club, which should be difficult because you need to do it without the club members noticing you.

    • when first of all this game is about sabotaging senpai love life from the shadows . yanderedev stated that the games is not about interacting and romancing senpai and anyway yanderedev is not accepting suggestions

  2. Hi there, every time i used to check blog posts here in the early hours in the break of day,
    as i love to gain knowledge of more and more.

    • I would Imagine that YanDev already has enough suggestions and ideas that he has to implement before he can start working on much more

  4. I’ve already voted, I just wanted to share this here as well.

    Please, take as long as you need on Yandere Sim. I love seeing your artistic vision shining through, and if that means another six months to a year of waiting for you to create the small town vibe you feel is a good idea for the longevity of the game, then so be it. I will happily wait that long.

    You obviously are extremely passionate about your work, and don’t want to release anything less than what you feel is a good realization of your concept. I admire this greatly and encourage you to take your time. I eagerly await my chance to donate, and I can’t wait to watch you continue to share your dedication and hard work with us.

  5. I’m wondering if there’s going to be some more in-depth mechanics related to how the game changes depending on what choices you’ve made in-game, such as killing, kidnapping, etc.

    Specifically, I’m pretty sure that Senpai–or anyone else for that matter–wouldn’t show up for school if 10 people suddenly died 😛

    Oh, and would you consider implementing options for a further customized experience–such as unlimited game time, different senpai-personalities, and different gamemodes?

    A gamemode I could imagine would be cool–though it would likely require loads of extra work–would be seperating you and your senpai between a boys-school and a girls-school, thus making it a lot more difficult to see your senpai.

  6. Dev, I have a question (or many more) to do … Yandere Simulator will have parents or whole house? Well, I think that parents will make it harder and more realistic game, but not really what I wanted. I wonder if, in the future, Yandere-Chan can interact with other students right from your home computer or your mobile. It would be good to keep her reputation at the top and at the same time to descend to its rival gossiping or spreading rumors on the Internet anonymously. But that would be another very complicated tool, so I’m not forcing you to do it, I’m just wondering about it.

    Teachers will have more interactions with us and the environment? It would be interesting, but not as important.

    If there really is a city, what can we do?

    Finally … When can we save the game?

    Well, that’s it. I really love your work and also play all updates, and if I have to wait another six months for the final version, all right! After all, haste is the enemy of perfection, right?

    Thank you for your attention and good luck! 😀

    PS: One day I will make a fanart for this game. (Do not expect much, I’m not very talented but I’ll do my best!)

  7. In response to your latest YouTube video about an open-world for Yandere Sim. I think that maybe an easier alternative but with a similar effect to an open world game is to create a small street outside the school that Yandere Chan can walk through and it includes her house. This way at the beginning of everyday she walks from her house to school which could be an opportunity to do some murders or spy on others conversations while walking. She would also walk back to her house after school. Senpai could also live in her street so she can stalk him home and spy on him. She could even look through his trash for more objects to put in her Shrine. This way would be much easier and quicker than doing a small town outside the school but it will still create a more interesting approach to the game as a whole. Hope this helps! Keep up the good work! 😀

  8. Will this game get a mode that will allow the player to choose if she/he could play as Yandere-chan or just the normal students? And what I mean by “normal students” is that you have to try to make Senpai yours without having Yandere-chan kill you..?

  9. What i do not understood is actually how you are now not actually a lot more well-preferred than you may be now.
    You are very intelligent. You realize therefore significantly when it comes to this topic, produced
    me for my part believe it from a lot of various
    angles. Its like men and women don’t seem to be involved unless it’s one thing to accomplish with Girl gaga!
    Your own stuffs great. Always care for it up!

  10. Please if you are seeing this

    I think it’s a bug. I tried killing one of the girl(the pink-black hair one) for fun in the morning around 7:30 AM, apparently when it’s time to attend the class I went in there but there aren’t a button for me to press, so I just stand there doing nothing. The reason I can’t attend the class, does it has something to do with killing this girl in the morning? If yes, is it a bug?

    Thank you, and I love your game. I’m looking forward to play the final one!

  11. When I get together with other classmates in yandere simulator , my character becomes slow . besides , when I go with them and make a stop in lockers or anywhere they move like crazy and do not stay still. it makes a mess in my cpu, amm … also I asked whether the game has points to track and kill your teammates to finish the game and we have to discover them ?

  12. Just want to say your article is as astounding.

    The clearness to your publish is simply cool and i
    could think you are an expert on this subject. Fine along with your permission allow
    me to grab your feed to stay up to date with approaching post.
    Thanks 1,000,000 and please carry on the enjoyable work.

  13. Just wanted to say keep it up with this game. I’ll literally wait 5 years for the game if it’s the best that it can be. You’re doing awesome! 🙂

  14. hey yandere dev tengo algunas ideas espero q te gusten

    q tal q se podiera matar a la maestra de otra forma con la katana, y q cuadn olla sea el dia viernes yandere-chan el pulso se ponga muy fuerte hay tambien actualiza lo del dia viernes ok , tambien q a senpai se le podiara ablar onke este la pantalla rosa tambien una idea de la wiki de yandere simulator vi q talvez y ban a poner a info-cha ny a el director tambien q los qno se movian se movieran como la ,enfermera,maestras,osana-najimi y el director q no se si se va a mover y ya esta si te gustoo ponlas en yandere simulator y si no no las pongas

  15. hello, my name is felipe, and i have a problem with the game, inicio el juego, y todo esta bien, nuevo juego, y todo sigue bien, estoy en el cuarto de yandere, y todo sigue bien, voy a la ciudad, y todo sigue, pero al llegar al colegio, se para inmediatamente al entrar a el colegio, este error pasa en la ultima actualizacion

    thanks you so much for the game, it’s a great work, thank you so much

    • sorry for the that mesage, this is the correct : hello, my name is felipe,and i have a problem with the game:I start the game, and everything is fine, new game, and everything is fine, I’m in the room yandere, and all goes well, I go to the city, and everything is, but upon arrival at the school, was immediately upon entering school, this error happens in the latest update

      thanks so much, for the game, it’s a great work, you are the best, true, thanks so much.

  16. I know you don’t like suggestions but me and my brother really want this in the game I’m sorry but I’m sure no one else would have suggested this so I’m really hoping this suggestion is OK. at the end of each day you automatically get sent home at 6:00 but sometimes people still haven’t finished disposing the bodies and they get a game over so what we would like you to add is a feature in the game where you can stay after dark to finish disposing the bodies but there could be teachers patrolling the school. again I’m sorry but I really wanted to tell you my idea

  17. I just had an idea: What if after gossiping too much about someone and then befriending them would (at a major blow to reputation) make them fall in love and do anything for you. Like mind break without the kidnapping

  18. I have an idea…if you get some students to fall in love and then kill one the other will commit suicide? I also want more ways to talk to students.

  19. You should make some changes on girls faces, so that they won’t look like Yandere-Chan.
    Face parts that can have different look: eyebrow, mouth, nose, eye style
    Hope you understand what I am talking about….

  20. Hey yandere dev do you ever plan on adding other popular anime Easter eggs like soul eater,death note, or SAO? Cause I would love to know

  21. Your game even though it is only a debug build has some incredible potential. I find it very interesting and incredibly thought provoking in regards to morality, mental illness, bullying and other dark issues we deal with. I think this game of yours has the potential to do some good by shedding light on things that should have attention brought to it, like bullying, suicide, mental illness and maybe hopefully encourage not only dialogue on what we can do about those things but actually push people to realize and go “Hey this isn’t right! We need to do something about this!” and act.
    I wish you much luck and hope that you are able to make this game the way you want to make it. I myself am starting out, learning as I go and I cannot help but be awed at the work you have done so far and I have a feeling it’ll make people talk and discuss things.

  22. I noticed in a video that you have been needing more students and I couldn’t get this idea out of my head so I was wondering if there could Be specially Ed students ( mentally and physically )
    But it would be very hard to attack them since a teacher would always be around them.
    ( if you do ever read this post I am very thankful for that )

  23. Umm…I don’t want to be a bother and a waste of your good but your target is osana Chan but you can’t kill her so umm..how is this supposed to work out?If this is stupid of me I’m sorry I wasted to much of your time I know your extremely busy…

    • There is a huge advise when you start the game saying that the game is not done yet and there is no way to win…….pls read the faq and the frequent questions tab, this and lots of things are answered there too…

  24. I love your gameeee soo much by the way tho other than the osan thing it’s soooooooo amazing you guys are so creative I love it

  25. i know this post is quite old but i dont really know were else to post it ;-; but any way, I have a lil’ suggestion for future updates. what if there was an option to “blend in”, such as sit on benches or at school desks, read, play on phone, draw or even casually talk to other students. they can pretend to tremble in fear once you’ve had a broken kill the rival and themselves after the player has learned enough of a certain skill ( not sure which cause I’m dumb 030 ) . This is obviously to avoid others thinking you had something to do with the murder instead of standing there emotionless ._. Maybe this can also help to ask others for favours even without doing a task. if you already had something like this in mind, I apologise for wasting time ^~^
