June 21th Bug Fixing Build (and additional thoughts regarding yesterday’s proposal)

I’ve got a new build with some bug fixes and some new content! Scroll down below this chilling illustration by TheJennyPill to read a list of everything that is new in this build.

  • Attempted to fix bug that would cause black lines to come out of Yandere-chan’s head at school, depending on what hairstyle she was using.
  • Fixed bug that would cause any kidnapped mind-broken student brought to school to spawn as a flaming Musume-chan.
  • Attempted to fix bug that would cause a mind-slave to return to normal after being splashed with liquid.
  • Optimized some code on Yandere-chan and female students in an attempt to improve the framerate a little.
  • Reduced the game’s file size by about 60 megabytes by compressing certain needlessly-large files.
  • Added a placeholder sound effect for the katana.
  • Added three new accessories for Yandere-chan.
  • Added three new hairstyles for Senpai-kun.
  • Added two new hairstyles for Yandere-chan.
  • Added a new weapon to the game – an axe.

Additional Thoughts Regarding Yesterday’s Proposal

Yesterday, I proposed the idea of a grid-based inventory system that is presented to the player as the protagonist opening up her skirt to expose weapons and items hidden inside of her skirt – and also expose her panties. I was not certain whether or not this kind of presentation would be considered distasteful, so I decided to poll the fanbase about it. Here are the results of that poll:

About half of the fanbase would be fine with the skirt concept if the panties were tastefully covered up. About a third of the fanbase thinks that the skirt concept is a bad idea. About a fifth of the fanbase is perfectly okay with the skirt concept.

I’ve been reading all of the feedback that people have been sharing regarding this feature. After thinking about it all day long, I’ve developed a rather firm opinion about the subject…

At this point in time, it’s probably not too presumptuous to say that Yandere Simulator has gotten a lot of attention. But, why? What caused so many people to notice Yandere Simulator? I’ll tell you what causes a game to not be noticed: being bland, and being safe.

A “bland” game is a game that doesn’t do anything unique to set it apart from other video games. A “safe” game is a game that avoids doing anything that might offend or alienate anyone.

An example of a bland game would be “You are a soldier, and you must shoot other soldiers.” An example of a weird game would be “You are a Japanese high school student, and you must murder other high school students.” An example of a safe inventory system would be “a grid inside of a backpack”. An example of a risky inventory system would be “a grid inside of a girl’s skirt.”

When you try to play it safe – when you try to avoid offending people – when you avoid taking risks – you wind up with something flavorless, colorless, odorless…something bland. Yandere Simulator would never have gotten anywhere near the amount of attention it has currently received if I always went with the least-risky, least-weird, least-offensive options. Instead, my game design philosophy has basically been to always do risky, weird, and even offensive things.

If I had allowed you to vote on whether or not I should include panty shots – or bullying – or suicide – or torture – or the implication of domestic abuse – I wonder if those features would have been rejected? Instead of staying away from weird and risky material, I implemented everything that seemed appropriate for a psychopath to do, regardless of how “offensive” it might be. As a result, Yandere Simulator’s unique identity – and popularity – come from the fact that it has a bunch of weird, risky, borderline-offensive things in it.

Yandere Simulator’s popularity is due to the fact that it doesn’t do the “sensible” thing for a video game to do; it doesn’t do the “normal” thing for a video game to do. Boost your stats by wearing different panties! Become seductive by reading erotic manga! Take off your clothing in the locker room and run around naked! If Yandere Simulator didn’t have features like this, it would be bland, and that means it would be boring.

You’re not interested in Yandere Simulator because it’s a bland, boring, inoffensive, derivative, safe game. You’re interested in Yandere Simulator because – in most ways – it’s unlike other games out there. Am I right? And it’s unlike other games out there because, instead of doing normal things – like putting an inventory in a backpack – I do weird things – like putting an inventory in a girl’s skirt.

Here’s what I’m getting at: Yandere Simulator isn’t the type of game that would have a bland, boring, uninspired inventory system that looks like it could be found in any other game. Yandere Sim is the type of game that would have a unique inventory system you’d never find anywhere else; an inventory system that, yeah, might offend or alienate someone, but that’s exactly what gives the game its personality.

If you haven’t figure it out yet, I’m strongly advocating for the skirt-based inventory system that I proposed yesterday. It’s the sort of game design decision that only an insane person would make – and that’s exactly what got Yandere Simulator this far in the first place. As you can tell by scrolling up and looking at TheJennyPill’s artwork at the top of this blog post, Yandere Simulator really isn’t a soft, fluffy, family-friendly game in the first place.

With that said, I can’t deny the fact that 33% the game’s fanbase rejects the concept. So, I’d like to make a compromise:

Within the game’s Settings menu, I’ll give you the option to display the protagonist as a silhouette on the inventory screen:

This way, anyone who thinks it’s distasteful won’t ever have to see it. I’ll also give the player the option of censoring panties, increasing the size of the steam clouds around nude girls, etc. I’ll let the player customize their experience so that they don’t have to experience the horror of seeing something offensive.

With this new information in mind, please vote on this poll to let me know how you feel about the idea:

http://poal.me/bxfsdx

YandereDev, YandereDev! Wouldn’t it be weird if Yandere-chan was constantly opening up her skirt everywhere?

Midori, you baka! Obviously, Yandere-chan wouldn’t actually be opening up her skirt in reality. The inventory view would be for the player only.

But, YandereDev, YandereDev! What happens when Yandere-chan is wearing pants? What happens when Yandere-chan is naked? What happens if the player chooses to make the protagonist a male?

…uh…enough questions, Midori! I need to get back to writing code for the game!

…aw…oooookaaaaay…

  1. Please people. Stop being so rude with Yanderedev! The mayority (88%) is okay with it since Yanderedev explained better his idea. Why do you haters speaks like you’re the right one here!?
    Yanderedev listens to his fanbase, if not he’d not making a poll. Just calm down. You’re not the only fan here. I’d be disappointed if I were making a game and my fans wanna tell me what to do insteasd of just suggesting

    • Hate to ruffle your feathers, but we have a right to disagree with a decision that many of us do not like. I actually overall like Yandere Simulator, but in this case, what I do not like is Yandere dev’s direction of essentially “doing something just for shock value, and for the sake of not playing safe.” (That is not a direct quote, but a summary of his wording.) Also, I don’t like the dismissive attitude towards those that disagree with him.

      Yandere Simulator is fun because it has fun gameplay and allows for a lot of creativity and variety. If Yandere Dev wants to just seek shock value for the sake of it, it shows a lack of any meaningful creativity from him, and an overall step in the wrong direction.

      I think the idea of panties being the inventory screen is just dumb. It’s not like you could hide much down there anyway, lol, so why not just use something else like a handbag? This is what I take issue with. Yandere Dev being crude and vulgar just for the sake of it, with no actual value.

      • A handbag or schoolbag would make sense. That way, in order to hold something and take it out before putting the bag down: decreasing the over-powered sense in concealed weaponry. It could also introduce bag searches where weapons being discovered could lead to expulsion.

      • I really like the handbag idea. The panty thing is alright, but has no setbacks. Like YandereDev said, “Murder should NOT be easy.” As easy as hiding your killing weapons in your skirt for easy access. Not to mention nobody can see you open it or what’s inside. I highly suggest he looks into the handbag as a she would seem normal, but still have setbacks like bag searches, and it would look normal to be going through your bag. Of course YandereDev can do what he wants though. It’s not like we care or anything…Baka.

      • Well we’re not dealing with a normal person. I personally think the idea. If the police were to see you as a suspect, the first thing they would check for concealed weapons is going to be the characters belongings, like a bag. However, hiding a concealed weapon within a gown would be the last place people would suspect. In Japan, the skirts, that high school teenage girls wear, have multiple layers of fabric. This makes it easier to hide items like a knife, cigarettes, syringe, box cutters, etc. Although people who find it “uncomfortable” so see, a true Yandere are known to be the most creative and outside of the box of the norm. In other words, this is Yandere Dev’s game. If he says that he wants an inventory skirt then let it be so. Deal with it.

      • Hola.
        Pues mira, llevo rato sin jugar y ha cambiado la forma.
        Pero, segun veo es así:
        Vas a Downloads, como siempre,
        y de allí haces click al primer link,
        allí te sale una pagina rosa. Ahí dan alguna información del juego y abajo hay un launcher que permite ir descargando las actualizaciones, no como antes que cada que actualizaba tenías que descargar el nuevo juego.

        Pues das click en Download Launcher.

        Si todo lo anterior no te funciona vas a Download y das al segundo link.
        ¡Espero haberte ayudado!

  2. I really like the skirt-based inventory concept, but the way it’s executed as Yandere-chan plainly opening up her skirt is somewhat… tacky and just not right. It’s just zooms in on the skirt and the skirt folds are pulled away like a curtain, exposing the panties. That sort of inventory-accessing just is jarring.

    I understand that the game uses 3-D models for pretty much everything, but I liked the example used to show the grid-based inventory for Resident Evil 4. It’s got the character on the side, and the inventory takes up the rest of the screen. I’d like that, having Yandere-chan to the side, and her skirt unfurling away from her to show what’s inside.

    Of course, failing that, a body-scan inventory system will do, as discussed above in the comments.

  3. I think its a good idea its realistic and convenient, and its Yandere Devs game he can do whatever he wants.

  4. I love the spirit Yandere Dev! That’s the kind of mindset that got Yandere Sim in the spot that it’s in right now! Personally, I love the skirt idea (because it’s clever, not because I’m a perv) (…even though I probably am), and I really love the idea that you’d give people the OPTION to censor it instead of removing it completely. Keep up the good work man!

  5. I think the skirt Idea is stupid in general because it doesn’t make sense physically. (sure it’s kinda funny and cute but it’s not really a clever game feature like you think it is) but if we’re going to talk about this aesthetically, I think the silhouette looks nice and you should leave it like that in the first place.

    • …So killing a teenager is okay, burning them alive is okay, drawing them to suicide is okay, cutting them up and placing their body parts in a case in order to incinerate the evidence IS OKAY, but having an inventory inside of a skirt?…..Oh now you’re going to far YD!!! Let me tell you why I like the inventory skirt idea One, it’s a good way to place items that are easy to access. Two, because you play as the so called innocent girl, people would never think that you have a concealed weapon inside your skirt. And three, Japanese high school skirts have multiple layers of fabric, making it easier to hide large amount of items such as a kitchen knife, syringe, box cutters, etc. In other words, this is Yandere Dev’s game. If he wants a skirt inventory then let it be so. Deal with it.

  6. dawg aight

    maybe i was very bitchy in those few posts

    but at the end of the day you guys catch my drift. there will be some features that dont make sense, but you know sometimes you just gotta roll on with it

  7. Its just funny tl me how bitchy these people get over a feature lmao smh

    that picture of the overwatch girl showing her ass to the screen was probably the bet response

    Like if yall wanna leave then bitch bye! We dont need yall unloyal hoes here anyway

  8. I like the new inventory system with or without the panty exposure. I think it’s really clever.
    Also, one of Midori’s questions say something about a male character. Does that mean we may get a male yandere-chan in the future?

  9. this is pretty stupid considering it’s unrealistic I MEAN LIKE who actually would consider to keep weapons in their skirt, that would just be uncomfortable and unreliable. (there would be such a high chance that your weapon would fall out and to reduce that chance you’d need to be walking all the time)

  10. I just have an idea about the pants and shorts thingy that people are constructively complaining about:

    A guy I saw on your blog post commented that the game has been always about “logic” soooo…. I think you should make the inventory smaller when Yandere-chan is wearing pants or shorts. Like two blocks of space. It would make the game more challenging. So when you change out of your uniform after killing someone to escape the cops, You can only bring one(or more) of the items you have from your inventory. I think it may also force the player to just give up on that day. The other stuff from your inventory… You could just move it to your school bag. I think this would solve that question Midori had. LOGIC and REALISM!

    Also another complaint I saw was “The game doesn`t revolve around panties!”
    You should add boxer shots so maybe it can be equal? Boxer shots should have lower value though… Maybe you can get boxer shots in the boys locker room.
    If that idea sound really dumb then maybe just add an option to not use panty shots but instead use real currency then. To get money they have to steal from understudents but make it hard. Stealing isn`t easy. Or maybe do it Persona style. Let them get jobs.

    Also add an option for the girls wearing shorts so when youtubers make a gameplay video they don`t have to censor it. Maybe other people would be happy too. Though it would be strange taking “panty shots” when they have shorts on.

    But in my opinion the best thing you could do is not change anything about the panty shot mechanics. Since they seem to have been triggered by the panty in the inventory screen, Have an option where Yandere-chan is wearing shorts inside with high stockings. I think that`s what made them say that complaint.

    Another complaint was “Why would anyone put sharp things near your genitals!!!?”
    Maybe have Yandere-chan wear some kind of foam inside her skirt so she won`t get stabbed. Logically, you can also put a holster on it. Maybe add holsters to the knife when it`s in the inventory. Add some pockets or straps inside the skirt.

    Next complaint is “You`re just adding this for shock value! Stop trying to make the game edgy!”
    According to the fan (Well actually the commenter actually stopped supporting the game already so logically he`s not a part of the fanbase anymore.), He/She doesn`t really think that adding edgy stuff for shock value without reason is stupid. Also he/she said it doesn`t make it a good game. He/she actually assumes that you`re only adding this just for attention/controversy. I for one in my opinion don`t think you are not. You`re actually pitching this idea just to make your game unique. It seemed really hypocritical when he said that cause he actually commented on how he/she hated how you “assumed” that the fanbase was just offended, thought it was inappropriate and etc. You`re just a person Yanderedev. I understand that you`re just a person but I cannot judge anyone whom I haven`t even met yet.

    I believe that you should do what you should just do. Just ask the fans if they like it or not. If you just want to take leap of faiths then do it just ask for response first. Anything to make the game unique is okay just check in with the fanbase first. Sometimes though, some of them will get angry so you better prepare for that.

    One of the biggest complaint is “You didn`t take our reactions seriously. You acted childish, like an ass, and etc.”
    First. Just make another video of just saying sorry. I understand that you want to add this feature because you generally like it and MAYBE you just really liked it so much and felt sad when people started saying that it doesn`t sound logical. You are human and we always make mistakes. I`m actually like that also. When I pitched an idea for my class and I already planned it out I really felt sad when the rejected it and kind of felt down the whole day and kinda spazzed out. Some are also like that. It`s hard to take in criticisms. Just like with artworks. It`s really hard. I still suck at it.
    All you need to do is say sorry. Some will still won`t accept it since… you know… HUMANS. [Insert ALIENS meme]

    I saw this comment “I will not continue on supporting this game anymore”
    Don`t get discouraged. It`s really hard to make everyone happy. Trying to make everyone happy may also kind of destroy you and drive you to insanity. You don`t have to please every person on this planet. In my opinion, This comment is childish. You made one mistake and they gave up on you but… then again it is their opinion so I should still respect it. Everyone is different.
    I won`t be giving up on you yet. You`re vision for this game is amazing. Your leadership skills impressed me. You are an amazing person. You will still makes mistakes though. You`re not a god. You`re just a man that is actually trying to do something amazing in this plain ol` world.

    You have a long way ahead of you Yanderedev. Just don`t break.

    • Assuming it is, I never said anything about not continuing to support the game. I don’t think anything would make me stop supporting it, as I love it and have had some good times playing, and wish to see it develop further and get better. My direct quote was “I do not see myself >>NOT<< continuing to support this game." I admit, I could've worded that a lot better, the way I did it was extremely confusing and I realized that when I read it back, but I had already posted it, so I couldn't really do anything about it. I never said anything bad about YandereDev himself, as I don't know him, but I was just responding to this one particular post, and summing up pretty much what everyone had been saying. We are complaining so much because we genuinely care about the game and are worried about it being seen as a lewd, silly, unrealistic game, which is the exact opposite of what he expressed that he wanted. I never meant to discourage him or anything. I don't expect him to make all the right decisions and bow to the fanbases' will. I mentioned that I'd be upset too and that maybe this feature was more important to him, but I just couldn't figure out if there was a reason for that. I understand that he may have not realized what he said was kinda mean. It was more ignorant than anything. If people actually were complaining about it being offensive in the least, I'd very likely agree. (Other than linking a picture mocking them.) but hardly anyone said that if any. It just seems really forced and exclusively for shock value. I love the grid-based concept and everything, but why ONLY in her skirt? Doesn't that seem obviously there just for shock value? I suggested if it were spread over her whole body it'd be cooler, more logical, less "LOOK AT THESE PANTIES!!!!" Disagreeing isn't hating. Arguing and debating against something doesn't mean you hate someone or the idea entirely.

      • Thank you for actually clarifying what you actually said there. WordPress should really add an edit option.
        I just also want to clarify that my comment is mixed with what the fanbase complained about.

        I`m glad you care about him and didn`t stop supporting the game. I know that the fanbase cares about the game, that`s why they complain which caused me to try suggesting ideas that would maybe solve the complaints that I`ve seen. Like the skirt thing. He could add holsters for the knives and shorts so it wouldn`t look lewd to other people (by other people, I mean the casual gamers or normal citizens) To me it seems logical for Yandere-chan would hide weapons, that are holstered, under her skirt since no one would look under a skirt. The idea still needs some polishing though. Like with what would happen if she were to wear shorts or pants. Which I suggested a two block inventory. Basically you can only carry a knife.

        I respect your opinion if you think the new inventory menu seems like it`s forced and just for shock value. We all have different interpretation on something.

        About your idea of the inventory not only being there on the skirt and insted its spread around her body, Wouldn`t that make her more naked? Unless, you mean that the inventory screen won`t show the body.

        Also I didn`t think that you hated the game. I thought you were disappointed. You actually said so yourself.

        Again, Thank you for clarifying your comment.
        I just hope that Yandere dev would be making another “sorry video”. He may be making one right now since he hasn`t posted anything on the blog ever since.

        .

  11. i dont get it why yanderedev is so obsessed with grid-based inventory, its too much pain in ass, just grab the weapon and the weapon inside inventory is good enough, i don’t like it when i grab the weapon and it need me to waste my time to find a place in inventory to put a weapon

  12. But I think there is a problem. What if you kill someone (but you don’t have any blood on you) and you have many suspicious weapons and poison in your inventory, then you take off your uniform to wearsomething else. The police could link you to the murder by finding your skirt with the weapons…

  13. When you’re talked about changing the name of the game, I thought you were really keep track the reputation of your creation and you want the game to be serious. But now you lose sight of this. A game in which schoolgirl bear arms under the skirt, does not cause the feeling of seriousness. The point is not that shocking to me see panties schoolgirl. But the in the fact that the idea, based on the storage of objects in a skirt, looks frivolous and silly. Sorry, but the use of censorship to the panties and silhouette will not be able to fix it. I’m so sorry.

    And if you don’t want the same negative reaction the next time, don’t start a poll, if you are going to ignore the results of this poll. If you like this idea so that you don’t intend to abandon it, even if one-third of the community against, don’t ask about it. Because this time it was as if you made a poll and does not take into account the obtained opinions. Excuse me again.

  14. It isn’t a bad idea, it gives the game a sense of uniqueness, but it should be a bit more realistic. What type of skirt open up like that? I think a jacket or backpack would suit the game much better. You can take anything out of the pockets of either at anytime so it would make more sense. That being said, if yanderedev continues with his idea, I won’t mind that much.

  15. I thought the description screen would be better, not because I’m terrified of seeing panties in a game (Or a world really) filled with panties already. The description box just felt better. I think I heard it described in an anime once as (paraphrasing) ‘People will obsess over what they can’t see more than over what they can see.’ It’s not quite the same, but there is something to be said about censorship in the right places, in the right ways. You have plenty of panties in Yandere Sim. Hell, pictures of panties is the game’s COMMODITY. But when you get really close like that but don’t show it, it just adds something. It’s kind of cheeky. It’s a quirky thing shoved into a game about murder. (Although I suppose that describes a lot of things in Yandere Simulator.) Regardless, I feel like that specific type of censorship, putting the description box in front of the panties, was just a more creative and entertaining way of doing it, rather than “safer” or more “bland” way of doing it. If I ran across something like that in a game, I wouldn’t think, “Wow, how lame” or “Oh no, Panties!!?!” I’d probably laugh slightly to myself, and think that was a cool way of doing that.

  16. YandereDev can do whatever he wants with the inventory system since it is his own game,I’d say.

    Up to this point, the game hasn’t gotten any blander at all. I can always find me lots of points to where I’d play again just to experience it all over again, get me? Even though it’s just a sandbox. Though to be very honest, It’d be just great if the inventory system doesn’t go to the point that it’s shown to be “inside” a girl’s skirt. I sometimes play this with my older brother and well, it’d be kinda awkward but owh well.

  17. I don’t think adding a feature just for the sake of being ‘different and and offensive’ (which is more or less what YandereDev said) is a good reason to add it. It is obvious, that YanDev likes his idea and wants to defend it but he could have done it in a way less bitchy way. To insult about 33% of his fan base because they don’t like his idea is just childish and rude.
    To me this feature doesn’t really make sense as well and I think there are better and more logical options to store weapons etc. (like bags, holsters and other already mentioned things) than just a grid displayed on a skirt. I think Yan Sim is already a unique game for itself and does not need to invent it’s own ‘super-unique and weird’ solution for every problem.
    I know most people are okay with his idea of censoring Yan-chan in the inventory screen and I think it is okay too (meaning I wont stop supporting this game because its inventory). But I still think he rushed this idea without too much thinking about it.
    I hope I made my point clear somehow even if most people already said something similiar..

    • Well we’re not dealing with a normal person. I personally think the idea. If the police were to see you as a suspect, the first thing they would check for concealed weapons is going to be the characters belongings, like a bag. However, hiding a concealed weapon within a gown would be the last place people would suspect. In Japan, the skirts, that high school teenage girls wear, have multiple layers of fabric. This makes it easier to hide items like a knife, cigarettes, syringe, box cutters, etc. Although people who find it “uncomfortable” so see, a true Yandere are known to be the most creative and outside of the box of the norm. In other words, this is Yandere Dev’s game. If he says that he wants an inventory skirt then let it be so. Deal with it.

      • Uhm you kinda missed my point (considering I said I was okay with his idea). You sure you replied to the right person?
        You kinda spam posted that on the other page lel

  18. I’m pretty disappointed by this post. I didn’t really care whether this was implemented or not, but what’s with the cocky attitude? You asked what people thought of it, and you got your response. I don’t understand why you’re patronizing your fans. Lost a lot of respect from me, man.

    • He makes a point though. People are quick to judge and after a while, it get stressful. Imagine yourself in his shoes for a day. You have to deal with thousands of emails that consist of mostly bs, you have to talk to volunteers to give you the exact detail of what you want, deal with emails, right code, dealing with more emails, pay bills, can’t get a vacation because people have high expectations of you, deal with more stupid emails, write and create an update video, more emails, not able to watch your favourite anime because of time that consumes your free time, and of course, dealing with people who would never understand what you’re artwork means to you. Please, he’s not patronizing his “fans”, he’s setting the record straight. ” This game is for you to enjoy, but remember that this is still my game. For now on, we meet half way.” Deal with it.

      • YandereDev, actually, when people think you got several work to do, and busy they want to say something yet start hesitating, they seem to think “well, one little e-mail from me, wouldn’t add THAT much in his work, so it should be okey.” like i’m doing right now, so i’m sorry, cuz when everyone thinking it, they pile up those *tiny little e-mails* of theirs and we all know the results to this equasion, again, I’m sorry …. so i won’t wast your time with my sillyness, tho i feel sorry for Midori since i’m worst than her…and! i really enjoy the game, love it so much, i wish those surprises would never end, now i got a new way to let out my frustration against this world as i’m 14, all thanks to you…Senpai! ❤

  19. So. What your saying is ‘Whatever! It’s my game and I’m edgy so I’m gonna do it whether you like it or not”
    Obviously. That’s fine. You’re right, you’re the game developer you can decide how to develop the game but if you’re concerned enough to ask the fanbase about a feature and the fanbase has reacted overwhelmingly negatively, maybe it’s not a thing most of us would like.
    You praised the fanbase’s opinions on the beat ’em up mechanic, now you’re saying that you plan to ignore it.
    Though if resse4’s inventory with panties is important to you then I’m sure there’s a logical reason for it, this just seems like a bad way to handle it.

  20. For inventory that works for all uniform, even when one is naked? A bag for school , it’s less cool but it’s more real games, and for example in the evening for a choice between doing homework or go to the web …

  21. Hey Yandere Dev do you have an idea what your rating will be? I don’t really know how the rating system effects inde games but I did see a large number of your fans were 14 to 18. Yeah a lot may be there to not play the game as intended but there still there. I don’t know how you are going to get around a mature rating. You might want to look into Danganronpa 1, 2, and trigger happy panic if your haven’t already. I know one of the things they do is make all the blood a horrible hot pink. Yes I know you don’t want a safe game but I would make it really hard to play if it gets band. Also I think the whole pantie debacle is more on how we view Yandere chan. Myself included view her a little more pure on the sexual front. Yes she is a a psycopath but a virgin psycopath. I think a lot of fans view her as a pure maiden. I think fans also view everyone else like Yandere Chan does, worthless filthly skanks gettinger in your way of you and your Prince Charming. They are hoes you mite as well take their underwhere and give it to Info chan. I think a lot of people don’t belive she needs to be reduced to flashing herself to us because she is above that. She is a strong independent women that is going to take her sempai with her own two hands. LOVE IS WAR and those skanks are the casualties of battle. She shall dig though the ditches and burn through the witches until she has taken them out. In the end when she is atop of the corpses of her enemies laughing, bloody, victorious and you pause to grab a weapon to raise in the air, getting flashed kinda ruins the monent. I think Yandere Chan is different and shouldn’t resort to flashing. I agree the bag is too bland but open skirt is too flashy. Makes her easy. One should work for a Yandere chan pantie shot. So instead Yandere chan pulls her skirt forward a bit and the grid pattern is there.

    • God, you’re wrong on soooo many things. It’ honestly pretty cringey.
      Just because you’re a virgin doesn’t make you “pure”. Virgins can be super into sexual things. Yandere-chan for example reads naughty manga to increase her seduction level. She’s not pure.
      > I think a lot of fans view her as a pure maiden. I think fans also view everyone else like Yandere Chan does, worthless filthly skanks gettinger in your way of you and your Prince Charming.
      Um, no? What the fuck? I certainly don’t view the game like this, at all. You’d have to be pretty damn immature to just have this view after what we’ve learned about these characters so far, and with Yan Dev repeatedly explaining that Yandere-chan is the bad person here. She is the one killing her innocent schoolmates just because they have a crush on someone. Her classmates are not worthless, they’re people with their own problems. Honestly the fact that you even said this says a LOOOT about your character… and it’s nothing good….
      >They are hoes you mite as well take their underwhere and give it to Info chan.
      you’re illiterate, and I heard you can get through the final game without resorting to that creepy weirdo.
      > I think a lot of people don’t belive she needs to be reduced to flashing herself to us because she is above that
      oh, so now you’re just straight up slut shaming. Grow the fuck up. Flashing your panties doesn’t make you less of a person, jfc. As long as it’s not some forced situation, or you’re not cheating on your partner, or some shit like that, there’s no shame in it.
      >She is a strong independent women that is going to take her sempai with her own two hands.
      and she can’t do that and flash her panties, if she were to choose to do so? Why? Why are these two things mutually exclusive? Why does even theoretically flashing her panties take away her ability to be a strong and independent WOMAN? (not women you illiterate child)
      > LOVE IS WAR and those skanks are the casualties of battle.
      this is a really dangerous line of thought when you think about it. imagine if you were to carry that line of thought into real life! yikes!
      >She shall dig though the ditches and burn through the witches until she has taken them out. In the end when she is atop of the corpses of her enemies laughing, bloody, victorious and you pause to grab a weapon to raise in the air, getting flashed kinda ruins the monent.
      ruins the “monent”? really? but nah, not really. it’d be pretty fuckin awesome tbh. and she’s not /getting/ flashed, she’s doing the flashing. silly. and that beginning sentence. o boy. so edgy.
      >I think Yandere Chan is different and shouldn’t resort to flashing.
      she’s not even actually flashing anyone except the player, so how is this a “resort”? it’s already been said she might be able to take panty shots of herself later in the game, is that going to be a resort too?
      >I agree the bag is too bland but open skirt is too flashy. Makes her easy.
      more gross slut shaming. Who even gives a shit if a girl is “easy” as long as she’s not cheating/breaking up a relationship and all involved people having sex are safely and consensually doing things? Nobody would care if it were a male protagonist yandere. Once again, grow the fuck up. Double standards are getting old.
      >One should work for a Yandere chan pantie shot. So instead Yandere chan pulls her skirt forward a bit and the grid pattern is there.
      Oh, so PANTY (once again, you’re illiterate) shots are fine as long as you have to work to get one, and it’s not just freely given by the girl. Okay. That doesn’t have certain rather gross implications at all…

      all together… grow up and learn how to spell. my god. this was unbearable.

  22. Hey Yandere dev, I would not comment on what you choose to do but how you are doing it.
    I don’t know if this is how it will look in the and but the skirt inventory made like this is a bit ackward for the way it’s opened.
    It would make more sense to open the skirt to the side.
    Also, if I were you, I would keep in mind the a skirt could no contain a lot of thing, so a school bag would make a sense, especialy because it’s an important element for a strudent. And I wish that the lockers would no be useless (apart for leaving a note).
    Good luck in your development

    • how exactly is showing panties “shock factor bullshit” when the entire game is about a violent girl killing people she doesn’t like to get her way? how exactly is something that could POSSIBLY be seen as sexual more shocking than kidnapping, poisoning, or burning alive your classmates? grow the fuck up.

  23. You know, aside from my distaste at the whole “inventory exposes panties” schtick, I’m actually opposed to the inventory system because of what Midori said. It simply does not translate well into every situation, so you’ve still not reached the finish line on this one.

    My recommendation would be to include both a skirt and a bag-based inventory system. The systems should have an effect on the capacity, carrying load etc. The skirt and the bag can both have their pros and cons (eg. the skirt shows panties and has limited capacity and all, but won’t slow you down by weighing too much) and the bag can be used for more versatile situations but also be more prone to slowing you down. Of course, it’s your game and you do whatever you wish, but remember that everything has to make sense from a gameplay and story standpoint, not just from a shock value standpoint.

  24. “What happens if the player chooses to make the protagonist a male?”
    I thought that wasn’t going to be supported? I’d love it if it was through! I know it would be a lot of extra work, but I think it would be a great idea and make things more… equal, I guess!

  25. I think the idea is okay, but instead of a silhouette, you can choose to add the little packet thing. Also, it would be more realistic to have a button hidden by yandere-chan’s shirt. Or a zipper. Anyways, I’m exited for the next build!

  26. I mean, if the protagonist is a male Midori gurinuuuuuuuuu then he can just use his coat as an inventory.

  27. Please could you do as an alternative link mediafire runs very slow, so much so I have to let down the juegoen night.

    thanks in advance yandere dev and thanks for a good game
    ———————————————————————————

    Porfavor podrias hacer un link alternativo ya que mediafire funciona muy lento, tanto asi que tengo que dejar bajando el juegoen la noche.

    gracias de antemano yandere dev y gracias por un buen juego

  28. Well, It doesn’t matter whether you agree this idea or not, half of the fanbase agrees about this idea as long as the panty shot is censored. Yandere Dev has decided it.

  29. Why do you waste your time trying to compromise and reason with insane people? Do what you love and implement what you like, fuck whoever has anything to say, like you said it doesn’t do the “sensible” thing for a video game to do, then go on and make what you want, your first poll was a mistake.

  30. i wish he’d address the fact that it’s not the panties, it’s the fact that yandere-chan’s underage. you can say all sorts of things like “OH YOU MEAN THAT’S WORSE THAN [insert list of violent things you can do]” and….. believe it or not…. yes it is.

    how old is she? 16? 17? that’s my age. i don’t want a presumably 20-30 yr old man sexualising someone my age, ew. it’s like those middle aged men that hit on teenagers. surely you can have the skirt inventory without showing her panties as well, please.

  31. Hey! I’d just like to say that I really like the silhouette idea! Not because it covers up the panties, but because there’s a lot of potential for it to look really cool if done correctly. It could make things look darker, like what type of game Yandere Simulator is supposed to be! However, this is your game, and I think you should go with whichever ideas you are most comfortable with.

  32. Well actually I prefer the grid which shows the panties because he could even display which panties she is wearing (in case we forgot), you know the one you choose when she is in her bedroom. I personally don’t think it shocking. I mean seriously, why would people freak out because of panties when you kill and torture people in this game. Well, this game is not for you dude.

  33. Maybe Yan-chan can hide her weapons by putting them in a blazer coat. That way both males and females can hide in weapons, and even if they do not have blazer coats, Yan-chan can still wear a cardigan or some other coat, or hoodie. Either way, I support you to the last decision. Have fun making the game!

  34. But what if Yandere open her skirt, there’s a thingy ( I don’t know what it’s called ) that looks like a boxer not a panty. I mean she’s wearing something that cover up her panty that look like a boxer.

  35. Hey how about the panties you choose for class you don’t see them on Yandere-chan call me a perv but I kinda fell in love with the concept of the Yandere. I thought of something better just a rambles of thoughts:
    -Using a locker for those embarassed about the skirt thing or a normal item screen. Personally I love the skirt idea.
    -How about a setup so when the rival confesses her love to senpai under the great tree something is there to ruin it all you have to do is watch it go south. IDK maybe a bucket of knives hit her in the head xD. or paint…
    -How about calling friends to yandere’s house to hang out you can kill with out restriction there… Don’t worry I use my unhealthy thinking in a creative way not to do wrong things.
    -I liked how you used the social media in the game perhaps other things could be set up from there. recently finishing “Durarara!!!” perhaps a conversation trying to give tips to the rival on how to confess to senpai in actuality yandere studied senpai enough to know the things he likes so she purposely misguides her.
    A few ideas…

  36. Oh for the guys maybe you can use an utility belt thats worn under the pants or something like that or if you watch kill la kill there was this belt thing that looped around the shoulder maybe that under the shirt!?
