I’m sorry! While I was producing my next video, I felt extremely dissatisfied with it, so I decided to revise it. I removed lame sections, added new sections, re-worded awkward portions of the script, re-recorded disappointing parts of the narration, and requested some new artwork. The narration now runs for 15:35 total, and, so far, I’ve produced 12:48 of the necessary material. This means that about 3 more hours of work are necessary in order to complete the video…but I’m exhausted, so I will have to resume working on the video tomorrow.
In the meantime, I want to share something else with you! First, a bit of backstory:
In the second half of 2014, I started creating an intro cutscene for Yandere Simulator. I produced four videos in total:
- Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-96P1WXQq0
- Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wxwu4UEgFAo
- Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAzg8HERD1U
- Part 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-o3VwKJkuY
Unfortunately, there was a very strong negative reaction to these videos. Many people complained that the protagonist didn’t seem like a yandere girl, and that Info-chan was playing too large of a role in the game’s story. People didn’t like the idea of the protagonist being coaxed into becoming yandere; they wanted a girl who was yandere right from the outset, without any influence from a secondary character.
A fifth video was planned, but was never made. This fifth video would have shown the protagonist’s obsessive, psychotic side, and would have made it clear that she was yandere way before Info-chan ever suggested the idea of murder. However, because of the negative reception that the first four videos received, I decided to just scrap that whole storyline and go with a completely different characterization for the protagonist.
Earlier this month, a team of people called “Sakura Media” launched the first episode of “Lovesick”, an animated series based on Yandere Simulator. The first episode is largely a re-creation of the original intro cutscenes that are linked above, but with better models, better animations, the addition of music, and different dialogue. Even though this storyline was abandoned three years ago, I think it’s sooooo cool to see those old videos from 2014 being re-created with much better production values!
I’m fairly certain that I’ll be able to finish and release my next video tomorrow. I hope that “Lovesick Episode One” keeps you entertained until then!
Thank you for your patience!
