I always aim to update the game on the 1st and 15th day of every month. I don’t have a new update prepared for you right at this very moment, but I feel very confident that a new update will be available within the next 27 hours.
Normally, in “Update Coming Soon” posts, I post an exciting preview of upcoming content – but today I’d like to show you something else. Recently, a fan of the game from Russia sent me some of their artwork. I was really impressed by the illustrations that they drew, and I’d love to share them with you!
I find this series of images so fascinating! It’s hard to find the right words to explain why I love these illustrations so much. For one thing, I think it’s really impressive that the artist created all of these drawings using pen and paper, in a world where digital artwork is so much more common. Black and white artwork always has a certain charm to it, too. The cross-hatched shadows really show how much time and effort was put into these illustrations, as well.
But, I think what I like the most about this artwork is how it shows the characters in their every-day lives, doing the things we don’t see them doing in the game itself. Info-chan using her computer at home, Ryuto and Pippi riding a bike together, Yandere-chan looking at a map of the school while she plans her next kill…it’s so nice to see these characters outside of normal gameplay situations! Each illustration also has a title written in one of the corners of the page; each title is a single word, but some of them are quite poetic!
Back to the original point of this post: I’m sorry that the next update will be a little bit late. Thank you very much for your patience, and thank you for following the development of Yandere Simulator!
