Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

I had a really big surprise planned today – it involved a collaboration with a lot of different people. As the deadline grew closer, everyone agreed that it would be better to spend more time improving it before we release it. So, it’s been postponed for one month.

In Japan, Valentine’s Day is a day when girls give chocolate to boys; one month later, there is a different holiday when boys give chocolate to girls. My big surprise will be revealed on White Day, instead of Valentine’s Day. Trust me, it’ll be much better if we have 30 more days to improve it!

In the meantime, I’d like to share something with you; this is a fan-made video that was just released earlier today. It’s so cool!!!

A few other fans have created some awesome things for Valentine’s Day, too! Click the “Continue Reading” link to see some of the coolest Yandere Sim-inspired creations I’ve seen today!

On a completely unrelated note…

TechRaptor, a technology news site that interviewed me on November 8th of 2014, contacted me for further comment on the Twitch issue. I’m aware that many of you are sick and tired of hearing me talk about Twitch, but for those of you who are interested in that topic, and want to hear how I feel about Twitch’s response, here is a link to TechRaptor’s latest article:

  2. DON’T FORGET YANDERE DEV’S SUGGESTION IN TWITCH’S SUGGESTION BOX!

    QUOTE:
    “Create a list of “Restricted Games” that can only be broadcasted behind an 18+ age gate.”

    Some games with nudity/sexual content are banned, and some games with nudity/sexual content are NOT banned. This creates a dilemma; on a daily basis, I see many broadcasters and users saying, “Why is X banned, while Z is unbanned? Z is worse than X! We should be able to broadcast X on this website!” These inconsistencies have caused confusion and frustration for broadcasters and viewers alike.

    For the purpose of this suggestion, let us establish two types of games:

    1. Pornographic games.
    2. Games that contain nudity/sexual content, but are NOT pornographic in nature.

    Pornographic games can be defined very easily; the sole purpose of the game is provide sexual gratification. Examples:

    The Maiden Rape Assault: Violent Semen Inferno
    Artificial Academy
    Artificial Girl
    Battle Rape
    RapeLay

    There are numerous games that DO contain nudity/sexual content, but do NOT exist for the sole purpose of sexual gratification. Examples:

    South Park: The Stick of Truth
    Amnesia: The Dark Descent
    Grand Theft Auto 4 & 5
    The Order: 1866
    Dante’s Inferno
    Conan: Exiles
    Manhunt 2
    Apotheon
    Outlast
    Rust

    Some of the games on Twitch’s list of prohibited games contain nudity/sexual content, but were NOT created for the sole purpose of sexual gratification. Examples:

    What’s Under Your Blanket?
    Yandere Simulator
    Genital Jousting
    Second Life

    Some of these games are arguably LESS sexual and have LESS extreme content than several Mature-rated games that are currently permitted on Twitch. In order to prevent users from experiencing frustration and confusion when trying to determine “Why is X banned, while Z is unbanned?” Twitch could change the way that it classifies games.

    Instead of:

    1. Prohibited
    2. Not Prohibited

    We could have:

    1. Prohibited – Completely banned.
    2. Restricted – Locked behind an 18+ “age gate”.
    3. Neither – Visible to everyone.

    Twitch currently permits streamers to click a checkbox that marks their stream as “Mature Content – Inappropriate for younger audiences”. Streamers would be required to click this checkbox if they intend to play any game that has been added to Twitch’s “Restricted Games” list.

    Any non-pornographic game that prominently features nudity / sexual content (Such as South Park: The Stick of Truth and Conan: Exiles) would be added to the Restricted List.

    Optionally: Viewers would be able to opt-in or opt-out of “Restricted” broadcasts. Broadcasters who are streaming restricted games would be hidden completely from viewers who have not opted-in. Potentially, e-mail verification could be used to finalize the opt-in. The list of restricted games would be updated over time.

    If ALL non-pornographic games with nudity/sexual content were treated the same way – everything from South Park to Conan to Yandere Simulator – then Twitch would benefit in multiple ways:

    1. Broadcasters would be able to stream non-pornographic games that are currently prohibited.
    2. Viewers would have a greater degree of control over the type of content that they want to watch.
    3. Twitch would never be accused of inconsistent rule enforcement or suspected of biased judgements.

    Thank you for your time.

  3. Happy Valentines Day, Yandere Dev! More than happy to wait if you and your team feel the surprise isn’t ready yet. Looking forward to the next build, whether it’s released tomorrow or not.

  4. Im excited to see what bug fixes the next build will have. I know Osana will not be ready for a few more months, so I just look forward to the bug fixes.

  5. Twitch is bullshit tbh. Girls can stream tiny little clips of gaming (they probably don’t even play half of the time)
    while being practically naked, and you and artists I enjoy watching get banned for the most asinine reasons.

  6. that was badass of her, hurting rival chan with a camera stand like it was ridiculously violent to see 😀

  7. Second, as far as future HOT companies go, it’s hard to say. The best way keep tabs on trending companies is by using Owler–I know that sounds like a shameless plug, but I really mean it. Use our Daily Snapshot to NBA 2K MT
    see who’s getting press coverage, follow our Weekly Showdown to compare blog stats, and check our Web Platform to see how a company’s social accounts are faring. I know that may not be the answer that you wanted to hear; but our insights can give you a much better sense of who’s trending than I ever could.
