Yandere Simulator Is Banned From Twitch

Yesterday, Yandere Simulator was banned from Twitch.tv. That’s a real shame, because Twitch.tv is, by far, the most dominant game streaming website on the Internet. Twitch almost has a monopoly on game streaming. There are some noteworthy competitors, but Twitch’s reach and visibility is beyond anything else available. As a result, when Twitch refuses to allow a certain game to be broadcasted, it deprives that game of a lot of visibility.

You can find out more information by watching this video:

In this video, I mentioned that I’d be willing to modify some of the game’s content in order to make it acceptable for broadcast – the key word there is “some“. I would only be willing to change minor and insignificant things that aren’t part of my vision for the game, such as the skin texture during Titan Mode or the size of steam clouds on a nude character’s body. I would not be willing to remove gameplay mechanics or change parts of the game that are essential to my vision, such as torture, bullying, panty shots, erotic manga, the ability to kill students in a school setting, etc.

I hope that Twitch re-examines their criteria for banning a game from their service. I hope that Twitch realizes that Yandere Simulator isn’t anywhere near as bad as many of the other games that they’ve banned. I hope that Twitch realizes that they presently allow people to stream games that are far worse than Yandere Simulator. I hope that Twitch revokes their ban on Yandere Simulator.

However, I’m not going to hold my breath.

    • I just wanted to put this out there – Yanderedev/Evaxephon/Alex Mahan is the most toxic, selfish, asshole I’ve ever had the misfortune to deal wtih. He was previously a video game streamer who focused on the most perverted shit you can imagine and harassed his female viewers constantly.

      He can claim he has changed, but even this month he’s been posting the most toxic, passive aggressive shit on his blog – If anyone deserves banning from Twitch it’s him and his perverted, backwards game.

      • LOL nice anectodal “evidence” mate. Nothing like a moral puritan calling something they don’t like backwards and perverted. And where the toxic/passive aggressive stuff on this blog? Oh right, you’re full of shit.

      • Oh look everyone!
        This weak ass fuckboy, thinks yanderedev is the most perverted man ever!
        How bout you leave the internet?
        If you don’t like this kind of game then get the fuck out.
        We won’t care, really.

      • @Marcellus oh no, someone wrote fanfiction that made me uncomfortable! That must mean he’s a bad person and would do those things IRL!!! Dude who cares. If you hate him so much, then ignore him and be done with it. Nobody is forcing you to like him or his work. Otherwise it seems like you have an unhealthy obsession with him, that, or are a crybully troll. And you must be really sheltered if he is actually one of the most “toxic” people you have interacted with lmao.

      • Right. This game and its panty shots are somehow more perverted then the actual sex scene they allow from GTA V. You have a personal problem with him, that’s fine with me, but clearly that is all this is about. And let us know when you make a game that is better and more popular. 5 million downloads, chief.

      • Oh boo-whoo,
        Are you trying to say to express your feelings, just by sending us a link to someone’s fanfiction?
        Again, fuck. off.
        If you really hate YanDev so much then fuck off, it’s not hard, We don’t have to listen to your stupid opinion.

      • Why was that link necessary? He wasn’t romanticizing, fetishizing, or even making light of rape (unlike 50 shades of grey, for example, which really romanticizes sadism and pedophilia). Its a short narrative of a girl that is held hostage and used against her will, and the mental struggle she’s going through deciding whether or not to end her life. Jeez, are you also one of those people that want to censor Mark Twain’s books for using explicit language?

      • Actually the pattern “Yanderedev/Evaxephon/Alex Mahan” is OK but i still doubt about Yandere Dev being Evaxephon in the past.

        About the accusations… man… that was so obnoxious. Even because, until now, i didn’t find such elements that you accused Yandere Dev on your comment tree.

  1. WHATZEFUCK? WAT? Why? Compare it to RapeLay. Battle Rape. Or GTA V. Now tell me… Yandere Sim? Really? Couldn’t they ban anything else?

    • you’re thinking now is a good time to begin a petition to support and defend YandereDev and Yandere Simulator?
      i believe if we began one it won’t take long before it fills up insanely fast!

    • Uh, about that. If people do start sending emails, please don’t send angry emails. That would be really immature of us.
      Also, I suggest we don’t start a petition. We don’t even know why Yandere Simulator is banned from Twitch yet.

  2. I think they didn’t ban GTA V is because it got a lot of money from selling… But. Come on Twitch, that’s just being dumb.

  3. Man fuck twitch you still have YouTube. You can still rely on YouTube to get your contact out there for everyone to notice it. Think of it this way, twitch focus is small where as YouTube focus is…well everyone.

  4. congratulations Twitch you just lost all Yandere Simulator community, see you in the grave yard right beside Konami!
    please make sure to tell us when you stream next time which website you’ll be using ok?
    my god and i didn’t yet make it to watch the older stream from where i left.. thanks a bunch! NORTH TWITCH!

  5. Well considering you still have panty shots in the game…its still nudity. Seems like a LOT of the games that are banned has nudity or partial nudity in it. Seems like twitch is trying to be “family friendly” with all those other games being banned.

    Sure, your game isn’t exactly as bad as the ones banned but it still has what most of those other games have: nudity.

    • That’s probably along the lines of what happened. My only other guess is Twitch didnt thoroughly examine the game- they just saw “Torture” “Suicide” “Bullying” “Murder” etc and assumed it was too graphic or something without realizing it’s actually pretty tame as far as a game about murdering people goes.

    • What exactly is family friendly about GTA? You have interactive torture, first person sex, and more graphic murder. You can stream Mortal Komat X and that’s definitely not ‘family friendly’.

      • To be honest? It’s probably because if they ban GTA they’ll probably get a LOT more shit for it than if they ban a game like this that’s still under development.

  6. that’s very un fair. As YanDev said; there’s nothing as graphic as other games such as GTA V, and even like that they should at least have the decency to tell where’s the problem in the first places. Refusing to let him know that information makes them sound like if they didn’t have a real argument against the game and they are just making excuses…

  7. “I hope that Twitch re-examines their criteria for banning a game from their service.”

    Seriously? Maybe read their Rules of Conduct and you’ll figure out WHY they banned it in the first place? Just a thought…

    Not trying to be a dick or anything just trying to give you another perspective to look at (and not get mobbed by half of your rabid immature fanbase/community in the process).

    Twitch isn’t the streaming website if you want to stream adult games. Since your entire gameplay is focused on killing students in various ways.

    • There are worse games on that banned list. And there are games that are way more graphic in terms of sexual content and violence that have not been banned. That’s why he’s saying he hopes they rethink it, because if they’re going to ban his game, they should be banning a BUNCH of other games that are worse

    • He already stated that they merely link you to the rules of conduct but they never tell a SPECIFIC RULE THAT THE GAME IS AGAINST.

    • I’m only watching this game to see where it goes and what happens to it, so I don’t really have a vested interest in it. With that said, you’re being a dick. You can give perspective in a friendly way, such as, “It was probably a bit too graphic, psychologically speaking, for twitch.” “It could be seen as encouraging the behaviors of the player character (that is, obsessive, violent, stalking behavior).”

      Instead, you condescendingly told the developer that they should just read the rules instead, and followed it up with an insult towards their fanbase. You completely ignored the fact that the dev stated that they were willing to make certain changes in order to get the game reapproved for streaming.

      There is literally no reason for you to phrase your comment the way you did. Why don’t you come off of your pedestal and join the rest of us here on earth? It’s much more fun.

      • Oh BOY, look at all the fucks I dont give for you thinking I’m a dick for not wording what I said nicer! Would you like a cookie for your troubles? You see me as a dick and I see you as a self-righteous ass who knew?!

        “I’m only watching this game to see where it goes and what happens to it, so I don’t really have a vested interest in it.”

        Ok and I actually donate to support the dev and his game so what? Still doesn’t take away the point I made REGARDLESS if you took offense to the tone of it.
        He SHOULD read the rules if he wants to understand why his game got banned. Carefully AND without bias or else hell never know. They aren’t going to give him an exact reason anyway. Twitch is shit at support and customer service. Even if he sent them messages about it, they don’t care to talk about it without using some stupid automated message.

        There’s nothing condescending about telling someone to read the rules? I honestly don’t care if you take offense to how I worded my opinion. Build a bridge and get over it sweetie 😛

        “Why don’t you come off of your pedestal and join the rest of us here on earth? It’s much more fun.”

        Nah, its much more fun making people like you angry over such trvial things. You should try taking some reality lessons it’ll come in handy for conversations like these sweetie :]

        “You completely ignored the fact that the dev stated that they were willing to make certain changes in order to get the game reapproved for streaming.”

        Him making small changes isn’t going to change anything either. Because taking panty shots is still going to be a problem for him. So no, I didn’t just “completely ignore” anything don’t put words in my mouth you twat. I doubt it’ll even BE approved if he refuses to remove that. Also, here have some twitch rules to read.

        Pornography and Other Sexually Explicit Conduct
        Any content or activity involving pornography, sexual intercourse, or adult services is prohibited. Conduct involving exploitation of minors will be reported to authorities via the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

        Inappropriate Broadcaster Behavior and Attire
        Nudity and conduct involving overtly sexual behavior and/or attire are prohibited.

        Gore and Other Obscene Conduct
        Content that exclusively focuses on extreme or gratuitous gore and violence is prohibited.

        That could be one of the three or ALL three that caused him to get his game banned. It is rather hypocritical that GTV 5 got a pass. Then again…it has a story to it unlike yandere simulator.
        I hope you have a pleasant night my dear sweet Takao ❤

      • I didn’t read much of this at all. I read the first line and realized you’re either trolling or projecting your immaturity onto others.

      • While you may have a point with two of those, I want to point out that an entire game can’t be banned for inappropriate BROADCASTER behavior and attire. That section is very explicitly about individual streamers, not game content.

  8. Dev, you are so sassy (LOVE IT!), and I hope Twitch changes their mind about Yandere Sim. Anyway to show your game off is good.

  9. I would be very surprised if you could get Twitch to talk to you without holding a few hundred thousand dollars over their head, minimum. They just outright do not give a fuck. They have *no* support for viewers, streamers with less than a couple thousand viewers, or indie developers. The best you can get is messaging their “staff” who spend most of their time shitposting and memeing on Twitter. Good luck.

  10. That’s seriously a dumb move twitch. Twitch is losing viewers because they banned a very popular game that’s still a BUILD and has over 5 MILLION DOWNLOADS already. Personally I think that twitch made a very unthoughtful move.

  11. Funny how most of the banned games on the list are Japanese or LOOK Japanese. You know what game does not look Japanese..? GTA, any of them, and most of them are worse than Yandere Simulator in terms of questionable content.

    Twitch, bunch of racist supremacists, confirmed.

  12. The only thing I can think of is that the nudity in this game isn’t of an adult… It’s of a minor. These are middle or high school kids and that could be the reason why it’s banned.

  13. Hearing about this was actually what helped me find the game. Kind of a sucky way, I’d totally love to stream it whenever the final version is out.

    Oh well, I can still do Youtube~

  14. It’s got to be the Panty Shots. YouTube finds that to be ‘highly inappropriate’ to the point where it must be censored. If that’s not it then it must be nudity in minors, and the ‘pornography’ that is seen, even if the clouds are there. It’s unbelievable that you can allow games that have ACTUAL cartoon sex scenes in them, but not this. Some fine grade A bs, if I do say so myself.

    • It’s because in games like GTA, whatever sex you have is consensual between adults and don’t show any nudity below the waist. On the other hand, Yandere-chan gets to take perverse, up-close shots of the panties of UNDERAGE girls in school uniform. I think that’s where the problem lies.

      • I think panty shots are less unsettling (or disgusting, whatever you want to call it) than… a first person sex scene, and I don’t care that they don’t show the waist down, the idea of %%W#4 ^%@#7^@% %!^%^$#&*( is good enough to get me disgusted

      • But that’s the thing, I can list about five different games of the top of my head that have the exact same concept, yet those aren’t banned and are streamed on Twitch.

        The panty shot system isn’t a fully functioning part of the game yet, and yes it may come off as unsettling, but in the game you do get in trouble for taking those pictures. Yandere Simulator isn’t saying that you should be going around doing this, it’s not promoting this whatsoever.

        Yet, in Natsuiro High School: Seishun Hakusho, it says “it looks like you’ll actually have to be careful and not get caught, or face the consequences.” I remember when someone got bothered by this saying how, “It’s promoting such lewd things, saying you’ll actually have to be careful.” Games like these fully revolve around taking panty shots of underage girls, and are allowed on Twitch. I just find something like that to be unfair, if panty shots are the reason that Yandere Simulator got banned from Twitch.

      • Hey, I’m not pretending Twitch is being fair or unbiased in their decision, but, NotoDisoShitoAgen, this is a game that takes place in a HIGH SCHOOL. It is reasonable to assume that a least one girl in an entire student body of high schoolers is underage.

      • Just because something isn’t banned on Twitch doesn’t mean that it’s okay to stream it? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the people running Twitch are not omnipotent. Natsuiro High School probably isn’t on the ban list solely because either A) nobody is playing it so Twitch isn’t aware of it, B) Twitch doesn’t know enough about the game to have enough knowledge to add it to the ban list, and/or C) People aren’t reporting the game as inappropriate.

        Twitch doesn’t monitor every upcoming title and handpick which go on the list of banned games. Games that are put on the banned games list have had controversy surrounding their release and development (RapeLay and Yandere Simulator), are rated Adult Only (Hatred and Manhunt 2), or have gotten popular enough that they’re in the public eye and thus Twitch is aware of them (Huniepop.) Yandere Simulator has a lot of negative publicity around it because people see a school setting where you kill other students and take pictures of girls’ panties. They assume that the people involved are underage and that it’s sexualizing and killing/torturing minors. After all, not every student that goes to a highschool is above 18. It’s a reasonable assumption to make when the characters’ ages aren’t listed publicly and are just “word of god.”

        To reiterate: Just because a game isn’t banned on Twitch doesn’t mean that Twitch somehow deems it better than Yandere Simulator. I could feasibly stream any manner of eroge not currently banned on Twitch and still get myself/the game banned if people report the content as inappropriate. If attention is brought to the Twitch staff that something goes against their rules, they will take action – but they can’t very well take action against something they don’t know exists.

  15. Maybe it’s because the game is about a teenager killing other teenagers? Or, taking panty shots of other teenagers? Just a thought…
    Anyway, this game is one of the best games ever, even though it’s not finished.

  16. does this mean no update? because yandere dev said that he likes to update every fifteen day:( i was waiting for the update. i hope its not another easter egg,i hope its something cool like actually allowing us to get revenge on the other girl that has a crush on senpai.

  17. Nice one, Twitch… ya banned a game that’s less worse than the horrifying stuff you allow on your site… I mean Yandere Simulator is bad, but seriously now it’s not nearly as DISGUSTING and HORRIBLE as GTA. Twitch seriously thinks tastefully censored nude characters is worse than… oh I don’t know a FUCKING FIRST PERSON SEX SCENE “Oh, the camera is pointed away” I say “I can still HEAR it” then YandereDev goes “I’ll put steam clouds over the obscene body parts” I say “Thanks YandereDev! Makes me feel better about the whole nude thing”!

  18. I have a feeling they banned games that aren’t from big companies (which means, money money money) and will do that to indie games because technically you have no fund to dispute your claim legally for banning your game, and/or you have not much monetary values to them. After all, for them it’s just good business that’s most important.

    • And that’s whats so bad about Twitch. If someone creates a game that is loved and is popular, but a game that doesn’t have much money behind it, they will ban it. They will ban it if they can find one thing that bothers them.

      This game is a debug test build, which means that as long as they aren’t major changes, Yandere Dev is willing to fix them. If the naked titans or the size of the steam clouds are the reason that Yandere Sim is banned from twitch, Yandere Dev was willing to fix them so that it would be acceptable for ‘family friendly’ Twitch.

  19. If you want to send Twitch a message disable your account if you have one and put something like:
    “I’m disabling my account because Twitch added Yandere Simulator to the banned games list and then refused to tell the developer why.”

  20. Please do not cave in and censor ANYTHING about this game, doing that only tells them that they won and encourages them to continue strong-arming devs.

  21. It’s a bit childish of them not to at least tell you what it is that bothers them. I say they can go fuck themselves, and you’ve got a respectably-sized following as-is that is absolutely willing to help promote your game via YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and other dominant social media platforms. Additionally, YouTube is where I first learned about Yandere Simulator– specifically from the playthroughs of Markiplier. I’m sure a lot of other people will find your game the same way. Twitch may be popular, but it certainly isn’t the be-all-end-all of streaming platforms.

  22. Tf this game has about 500 000 followers in SANDBOX?? Well i guess we can live without Twitch. Twitch bb u bitch YandereSim streams were everything i ever watched.

  23. Stupid social justice warrior ruin fucking everything. This is why people use hitbox; they don’t ban anything, including AO games. If people want to watch something, they should be allowed to; it’s their choice. Twitch has been going downhill ever since people like Brittany Venti got on it and started ruining the site and making it pander to their feminazi shit.

  24. GOT THE SOLUTION:
    Make all characters have 18 years, like japanese games do to sell in america.
    Make all the school being for third years only, and make the game happens in the last months of the school year, that way you can say they are all 18.

    • “There are naked school age girls in this game, and that is why Twitch banned it.” Twitch never actually made a statement as to why it was banned in the first place.

      “Go play your weird japanese sex games.” Yeah, I’ll pass on playing DMMD. It’s people like these that just have a thing against anything that isn’t American. Some people just are unable to step out of their comfort zone to realize what other cultures have, because one little detail is different.

      To be honest i have never cringed so much as I did watching this. Everyone can have their own opinion, but when you take opinions to far that’s something entirely different.

  25. I think the reason why GTA isn’t banned could be that Rock star paid Twitch to allow people to stream GTA. But that is just my speculation

  26. I’m so disappointed with the people on kotaku, youtube and everywhere who are judging this game without looking into it because of the ban. People are saying that this game is about sexualized violence and torture. *Facepalm*

  27. Twitch is just a politically correct piece of trash. Don’t bother streaming on that. They allow girls to show their boobs to seek attention BUUUT when there is a game with not that graphic/over realistic graphisms with a certain NSFW content (this changes from other games i like that) It gets banned. Stand strong against those butthurts. Don’t modify anything. It’s up to THEM to fix themselves.
