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.

    • Just a little in my opinion,games like GTA haven’t been banned though,or have they?YS is pretty tame with the violence-there’s WORST games that from just the cover yell out “Hey Kids!Want to kill your parents and innocent people?Try our game!We got strippers and such!”

  1. Pingback: Yandere Simulator, a game where you kidnap and torture school girls, has been banned from Twitch | RocksGame

  2. I suspect it’s just that your game does not reflect the values and biases of certain Twitch staff members so they use their power to censor you. This is unacceptable but it’s been a long time coming.

    I remember when youtube and justin(dot)tv had pirated movies, pornography and live sporting ppv. You simply had to google it and you’ll have these copyright infringing contents right at your fingertips. But the moment they reached critical mass, the moment they dominated their sector of the internet, what happened? They cleaned it up, but the users stayed. Sure, people can go somewhere else for that kind of stuff, but they won’t stay on those sites for the legal stuff. Afteral, that’s what youtube and twitch is for.

    I’m done with twitch, I like watching people stream retro games but it’s not worth supporting unethical corporate sellouts. Maybe I’ll go hitbox before they go defunct.

    as for youtube? Too late on that one, they hold the monopoly on cat videos and there’s nothing we can do about that.

  3. The game was basically a victim of PC culture. I’m sure the word PC must make some think of PC Principal from South Park 😉

  4. So once again censorship reigns supreme. This is pure PC crap and it’s entirely a product of the federal government’s massive overreach in trying to manipulate and control societal forces. An entire generation of Americans, including much of our current ruling class, is dedicated to the idea that people have to be protected from feeling offended or from “harmful ideas” and that is the road to ruin.

    Once a company hits a certain size, the government takes notice and, almost instantly, they clear up any “offensive” material and everyone pretends what they did was good. Our governments are systematically eroding and destroying our freedoms in the name of PC crap and so-called security. We are slowly criminalizing thoughts and bad feelings and no one seems to care.

    This sort of thing is a tiny symptom of the larger problem: a refusal by the public to stop caving in to a small minority that is offended by damn near everything.

    • What, are you kidding me?
      I mean, I understand that videos should be age restricted, because Yandere Simulator IS a violent and sexualized, but taking down videos of it? That’s ridiculous.

      There are MUCH, MUCH worse content on YouTube.
      There are videos of real violence and real nuditiy, and YouTube are taking videos of Yandere Simulator down?
      I refuse to believe that. Maybe you just meant that videos are getting flagged and age restricted, but not taken down.

      • Well…..i’ve been in the terifing parts of YouTube,and Yandere Simulator is WAYYYYY too tame to be called “a violent game”.Yandere-Dev,in my opinion, hasn’t made this a gory creepy game-just a smidge but not enough to make it look like you’re able to rip up a schoolgirl’s insides (and to be honest i HOPE TO MY MIND that he would never create some update for that),nor has he made it able to ACTUALLY see the torture or nudity,which unlike other games which allow you as much as you like(Ex: GTA)

        Its unreasonable to remove a video for just showing fake panties,people upload worst things,look up the guy who uploaded vids of him killing cats and stuff till the day he ACTUALLY killed someone who he used to date and is now paying jail time for it.

        and then there’s that ‘doublesweee’ kid that raps about spongebob and stuff…………

  5. It’s truly sad that the internet has fallen victim to this kind of stupidity as well…I’m glad I left Twitch after reading this but I’m sure the same BS will come to every other website eventually because some people think they know best for everyone and that their “values” are more valid, it’s a sad world we live in where censorship has to take over for people who have no self control or ability to control their own children.

    • Hey Hey… don’t be paranoid. Twitch.tv is not the internet and Tumblr neither.

      Social marxists were there way long ago, before the Web.

      Twitch finally got their “example” for banning nearly all anime-themed games. They were always been biased and racist.
      Numerous people gone off that place, because of the unbearable sexual nazi chat and money scams. Let them rot.

  6. I know that this game has murder, suicide, bullying, etc. I don’t get why Twitch banned this game.
    1. It has little sexuality. When the player is nude (and when Senpai is nude in the customization screen) there are steam cloud to cover it up, and YandereDev said he will make the steam clouds bigger is he needs to. He also said he is willing to change the Titan texture (although I think skinless titans are also unacceptable for being creepy). And I don’t see how the panty shots is a big deal. It’s just underwear, and we are already hit puberty by the time we hit 11.
    2. There isn’t much cursing. Senpai says hell when he sees Yandere-chan visibly insane, and the Journalist says damn in the tapes, and that’s about it. And hell and damn aren’t even curse words, technically.
    3. The violence isn’t that bad either. The blood pools look very unrealistic. In the “red screen” in the intro it’s so read you can hardly tell where there’s blood and where there isn’t. Things like torture, dismemberment (when it was still available), etc. have no visuals, and there aren’t any students beating up students, maybe they’re just using verbal insults.
    Come on, Twitch, you ban something with little violence, suggestive language, and sexuality (I don’t want to say none because there is some, but very little) and you allow people to stream much worse things. No to mention banning everything anime related.

    • DON’T WORRY, there another game stream like Yandere-dev said so. SO, we call stream and promote the game in that site. And for TWITCH, we could put in our own BLACKLIST, until this game finish then will realize, they BAN WRONG GAME.

  7. This May sound stupid but I think yandere sim was probably banned because it depicts violence against students who would probably be considered minors. One main difference between Grand Theft Auto and Yan-sim is that literally all of the characters in gta are adults. Just my guess.

  8. I stream on dingit.tv its a newer streaming platform based in the uk. The people who run the site activly talk to you and make sure your dooin ok. We also can make money by putting in effort and unlike when i was on twitch where the streamers who play the same game were trying to one up eachother. On dingit when we find out another streamer plays the same game like league of legends for example, we all end up making it a point to stream together and have fun rather than competing.

    I stream yandere simulator there with a few other fellow streamers there and the variety in yandere simulator vs when someone streams something like persona or hearthstone is refreshing to viewers. Dont change your vision to appease to twitch, what im getting at is you will easily still get alot of exposure for your game and heck having it on the twitch ban list actually makes people curious about the game if they already dont know about it.

  9. I… think it might be because of the fan-made Visual Novel someone made. It has… really inappropriate content, which I learned watching someone play it on Youtube. If someone was streaming THAT, and a Twitch official saw it and just read “Yandere Simulator” as the game being played… Yeeeaaah…

  10. Certainly twtich should feel bad for having banned yandere simulator. I think they’ll unban Yandere simulator. If not, you can use
    another platform live video.
    So, don’t worry. And Concentrate on the new update.
    We’re still waiting for the build. 🙂

  11. I say if you Yandere Dev, give me permission, that we start a petition against it, proving all the most outraging facts, I cannot believe that somehow this game, can be worse than gta v, and asking for the reason why they banned it. As a soon to be manga author and book writer, I know what types of themes (and I’m sure even a child knows) are inappropriate. My 6 year old brother plays this game with me! How does a game that a 6 year old can play banned?! It is extremely absurd, giving it a bad reputation, when it is not as bad as any of the games listed below. So if you may allow me, I say we start a petition and fight back, unless you wanna fight back in a peaceful way, then lets fight back that way, but don’t let yourself down. This is absurd.

    Best regards,

    Hitomi Kasai

  12. everybody kill admin of twitch!!! ¬¬ *yandere laught* hahahahaha, to me yandere simulator its my dream game *^* <3<3<3<3<3

  13. The only plausible reason I can think of for the ban is that your game, in a sense, promotes school bullying and suicide, as you are the one implementing it. Note: I’m not saying you approve of it, or that is what the game is about, but it does contain this content! Bullying in and outside of school is a serious issue that leads to suicide or permanent mental/physical damage. It would be easy for someone who has went through such trauma to stumble upon your game in a mass media, not understanding what the game was initially about, and have their own experiences resurfaced through watching it. Especially that scene where Kokona gets VERY nasty comments written over her desk and hangs herself.

  14. I can’t understand this people, butt well, you have my support to continue the game, and of a lot of persons! keep fighthing!

  15. They also made you censor it on youtube, which is really irritating. I swear why do you need to censor it when this generation knows what a lot of things are, already x_x

  16. Just send Twitch go f**k yourselves!
    If there are worse games than yours in a matter of content coming out of people’s daily lives as quoted in your video and still banning their game without speaking a specific reason, it’s obvious that this is pure hypocrisy.

    PS: I just want to see when it is released DOA3 if Twitch will ban too.

  17. Do you know whyt they did not b& GTA V from Twitch ?
    Because they sold several millions copies and I don’t think Twitch feels like having legal issues with Rockstar now.

    They might consider you like some kind of sociopath nerd mixing hentai and GTA V into a “unacceptable game”, but unlike Rockstar, you won’t have an army of attorney by your side.

    This is what usualy the kind of thing that happens when a succeeding startup starts to be full of itself.

  18. I agree with you. GTAV is a naughty game and it should be banned from twitched and personaly…i don’t like the nude stuff……but i’ve seen, and played games, with worse stuff, and its not banned on Twitch. Cardenal Syn with nude, poking fun at christianity and blood, Megaman X4 *le gasp* Blood (in Zero’s intro cutscene) violance, hate, poking fun at the army (don’t take that one to serrious,) and cursing,

  19. Why you care? Twitch is a private company, they can do whatever they want, leave them alone and just move to Hitbox or another platform, and moreover don’t accept compromises and censor your own game to please these hypocrits crusaders over a futile thing like this. Move on.

    • I disagree with you. You can broadcast Alphas/Betas. As long as it’s allowed by the copy rights holder.

      @Dev you can release two versions censored and uncensored.

  20. kindof gives the game publicity in another way. its like what journalists say, no such thing as bad publicity. now theres posts EVERYWHERE about yandere simulator being banned by twitch, more specifically about the contrary unbanned games still being streamed at full force.

    people are finding out more and more about this game, no matter what the post is about. the name is getting out there, and more so, most posts are going out there and even saying youre attempting to rectify any bad blood there may be. just keep doin what youre doin, if they want to advertise the game for you in a different way, let them.

  21. I could be wrong but there is a game out by the name of bully. In which you are a bully. So I don’t really see much of a difference between that and YS

    Of course YS could be a bit more violent and sexualized but so is most anime.

    If twitch gets away with this then it opens the gates of hell meaning it will make banning all anime easier for the pc idiots. And theyll use YS as the example.

    Basically my logic is if twitch keeps the ban it will make it easier for other anime related stuff to be banned. In turn that stuff will get banned in a repetitive cycle until just mentioning anime is breaking the law.

    I advise you fight for your right.

  22. If their going to ban the game. Give them a good reason to ban it!

    If your game was a movie it would be rated NC-17. Why does NC-17 exist as rate for movie? Because many movies like “A Clockwork Orange” are clearly not porn but are too extreme for R-rating.

    Advertise your game as being NC-17 equivalent.

  23. Yandare dev I want to volenteer now I can’t do any thing on the list but I am good at cooming up with ideas I have so many ideas on what to do plz can I help I all ways wanted to I love your game I watch it on YouTube because I don’t have a computer so I can’t play it but I watch a lot of game play plz say yes

  24. A wise advice: drop them as fast as you can.

    In fact, you should be glad that they “banned” you. This wretched place is known to be a den of neo-nazis and scammers. So much for “OH NOEZ, THEI KILLING THEM SCHOOLGURLS”. Such hypocritical racists.
    Most people have also negative feedback, about their extreme bias toward game genres.
    You have all the actual big platforms anyways. Geez, you already have goddamn YOUTUBE, who didn’t ban you or anything! Many have made their fortune here!

    By the way, don’t delude yourself… Twitch.tv is not dominant at all, excepted when it comes for streams that spawn cancer memes (Darude-Sandstorm) or GTAV (something that is re-broadcasted on Youtube for free anyways). And many, many people don’t even know it’s existence. Dominant, my ass. It’s just the 9gag of streaming websites.

    Forget about these dumb-asses and do what you always done: making a fun game about a stereotype that already got a deeper meaning.

  25. May be it will be banned at YouTube gaming if reason founded, but not now.
    Also currently YouTube gaming is the best platform for streaming. Twitch is ugly and obsolete, didn’t implement something new, continue support something ancient.

  26. Excuse me, Mr.Yandere Dev, I feel bad that you have to deal with all of this mess. Though, I have a way to help. I am willing to help you with the game, I can give you ideas whenever you have a problem, suggestion, or whatever you have to offer. Here is what I mean, I saw your video of what should Yandere Simulator be renamed to, and I thought it through, and I finally got a perfect name for your game, what do you think of “Broken Yandere: The Fight For Senpai”? I just thought it could be more of a Horror Game. The reason I thought of this name is because I remember in the speech of Yandere-Chan that has said “I know that I’m broken… but that normal for me”, it is simple that this name I thought of will make sense because since Yandere-Chan wants Senpai to notice her but another Chan is willing to confess her love to, said Senpai, Yandere is willing to kill that Chan. So the name has parts that describe the game, “Broken Yandere” represents that she has gone insane and willing to kill any Chan that loves, looking at, or speaking to senpai. “The Fight For Senpai” represents the goal to the game is to win Senpai’s Heart. So that is all I have to say, hope you understand.

  27. Honestly it’s a shame but twitches rules are getting tighter and tighter and eventually they’ll realise that there loosing revenue. You can’t even cosplay in anything more revealing then a tank top. Yandare dev please don’t remove any of the main features because of 1 of the many streming services!

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

      I think YandereDev doesn’t give a shit. He will continue what he was doing regardless of this dinosaur of game streaming.

  28. I sound like a total noob but I’ve never heard of Twitch.Not until I saw this video.
    Yea call me whatever you want,but I really have no idea what Twitch is.

    • “Yea call me whatever you want,but I really have no idea what Twitch is.”

      I will call you a well-adjusted person.

      If you really want to know what “Twitch” is, is basically a biased, pro-american website, with a chat that make the Youtube comments section looking like nice gentlemen. Seeing a neo-nazi there is almost common. For the rest, it’s “Vines KEK” style cancer all over the place. Remember “Darude – Sandstorm”? Unbearable.

      • Oh,I see.
        Thanks for the explanation,it helped a lot.I don’t think I’ll be going there,just to avoid the internet cancer lol.I personally just enjoy YouTube Gaming for gaming broadcasts,haha
