March 2018 Progress Report

Hi! I’ve been busy! Check out what I’ve been working on:

Click “Continue Reading” to see a list of everything that is new or different in the latest build!

Fixes, Changes, and Additions

  • If two students in a “mind-broken” state are both trying to kill the same target, the second mind-broken student to reach the target will commit suicide as soon as the first mind-broken student begins the murder-suicide animation.
  • In previous builds, during Mission Mode, the player could fulfill the “dispose of corpse” criteria by simply placing a corpse into an incinerator, without actually activating the incinerator. This bug has been fixed.
  • It is now possible to “Tag” a student from their Student Info page so that a marker appears around their head in Yandere Vision. This is to help the player when they are trying to quickly locate a specific student.
  • The “Evil” Persona has been changed into the “Spiteful” persona. Instead of enjoying all deaths, a Spiteful student only enjoys the death of a student who has been bullying them, or the death of a bullied student.
  • It is now possible to change Yandere-chan’s “Persona” at any mirror (including the ones in bathrooms or the locker room). Using different Personas will grant you benefits will certain groups of students.
  • Fixed bug that would cause a Student Council member to perform their pepper-spraying animation in situations that would result in Yandere-chan snapping out of the pepper-sprayed animation.
  • Added a new set of background tracks to the game (3 different tracks for each level of sanity during high atmosphere, medium atmosphere, and low atmosphere; 9 tracks in total).
  • Fixed bug that would allow the player to take a photo as the school scene was loading, which could cause the game to get stuck at the photo-taking screen.
  • Fixed bug that would cause an Ambient Conversation event to continue happening even if the two students involved in the event were alarmed by something.
  • Fixed bug that would allow the player to manipulate a Fragile student into thinking that they orchestrated their own bullying campaign.
  • Fixed bug that would break a Student Council member’s AI if Yandere-chan bumped into them while they were witnessing a murder-suicide.
  • The police will no longer arrive at school when an easter egg is active. (The Police timer will appear, but no police will arrive.)
  • Fixed bug that caused Yandere-chan to react to Senpai’s desk as if it was Senpai himself, which would only occur in Mission Mode.
  • Fixed bug that would cause graffiti to appear on Kokona’s desk at lunchtime on Monday when it shouldn’t be there.
  • Fixed bug that would cause Student Council members to slide across the ground after witnessing a murder-suicide.
  • Fixed bug that would prevent a student from being marked as “Missing” if their corpse was hidden in a dumpster.
  • Fixed bug that would cause some characters to fail to acknowledge a murder / corpse in the Occult Club room.
  • Fixed bug that would cause bully accessories to disappear during the group takedown “HEARTBROKEN” sequence.
  • Fixed bug that would prevent the player from interacting with students after hiding a body in a dumpster.
  • Fixed bug that was preventing Kokona from blushing around Ryusei even though she’s attracted to glasses.
  • Reduced the reputation boost that the player gets from handing out food, because it was too imbalanced.
  • Fixed bug that would prevent students from spotting a corpse in a certain part of the gardening club.
  • Fixed bug that would cause weird shadows to appear on Yandere-chan’s thighs in the 6th uniform.
  • “Dangerous” and “Heroic” students are no longer able to switch to the Phone Addict Persona.
  • The corkboard will now recall photographs and strings across multiple days.
  • Removed duplicate knife that wasn’t supposed to be in the Cooking Club.
  • Fixed bug that was preventing Loner students from calling the police.
  • Double-tapping the “M” key will now change the background music.
  • Improved bully cardigan textures.
  • Improved Yanketsu texture.
  • Improved Ebola textures.

What’s next?

You’ll probably be excited to hear that:

  • I recently received all of the animations I need in order to implement the Sleuth Persona!
  • In a few days, I’ll be putting a new cassette tape in the game for the first time in over a year!
  • I now have the artwork and voiced lines I need in order to create a video that I’ve been planning to make for a long time!

I hope you’ll look forward to what I have in store in the near future!

Thank you for following the development of Yandere Simulator!

  1. The laughing in the cut scene doesn’t sound right. It sounds like a bunch of monkeys rather than giggling. Maybe adding different types of laughing instead of basically the same laugh layered over top each other. It really kills the mood of the cut scene.

  2. Will there be some sort of penalty if a player changes their persona to often? I would definitely be suspicious of somebody if their demeanor changed every day.

  3. Don’t give him a hard time about the giggling! He’s doing his best and working very hard. There’s honestly NO reason to criticize his work. The cutscene gave me chills, he deserves love and support, not hate and disrespect :<

    • I agree his work deserve a lot of support and I support his job but I also agree that the laughing in the cutscene are horrible. However, it’s just a need of improvement because except this, the cutscene is cool.
      That’s why I’dd say there is something wrong in it. If he could just change the laughing track for this cut scene, it could be great (and I don’t need it to be change right know, he can improove it later in a bug correct).
      So if we critisise his job, it’s not by hate or disrespect (except for the haters), but by love for his game which is gonna be a great game and the goal is to help him to find the little imperfections so he can make his game even better. 😉

    • I don’t think is hateful or disrespectful just giving him advice or said what kind of things he can improve, he surely is making good progress but also needs a few fixes, sorry if this will sound rude but people who just “ass kiss” him don’t worth or are of any help for him or the game right now, he needs support as much as he needs advice.

      I’m loving his progress and I know he will do better in the future if we just help him pointing out the things that can be improved.

    • Having an opinion and giving constructive criticism does NOT equal hate and disrespect. Are you honestly kidding me right now?
      I wish people like you would stop worshipping Yandev enough to realize this. It’s a major flaw in the fandom.

      • I know! ever since Dev himself did that test about chill and heated fans (the only thing I can said openly I surely hated because of how stupid it was) people just want to be all “chill wannabes” and start harassing other users with the slightest is disagreements. Is sad they just don’t realize how stupid they are for just worship him instead of being objective, thing that will help Dev like they have no idea, advice and constructive criticism is what he need the most now for sure.

    • It’s not disrespect, it’s constructive criticism. Yandere Dev is making a game that will eventually be sold. People want to get what they’re paying for. Yandere-Sim is a game that has creepy aspects in it. People would reasonably want and expect creepy laughter, not giggling monkeys. YOU might think everything that comes out is perfect and ready to go into the final stages but not everyone else does
      Some times the criticism is it’s own support for the game

      • Sad how this so called fans will be happy with a half-done things instead of the final product…

    • That One Midnught Gamer, Um… How was any of what Heather Menkei “hateful” or “disrespectful”? They just gave their opinion! I’m sorry, but if you think that, that was “hateful” or “disrespectful” then you’re just a little a bit over sensitive.

  4. I think changing Yan-Chan’s persona needs the proses learning that persona. And player can’t change her persona more often than once a week. Sorry for bad english.

  5. Sleuth means Detective for anyone who is wondering. So we are getting a detective persona; that should be interesting.

  6. Um does anyone know why does Yandere Simulator crashes everytime I go to the bedroom? When I first download the game, I extract the files, bla bla. The first time I play the recent build, The bedroom does load without problems, but when I close the game, and try to play it again, it crashes. I know this isn’t the appropriate place, but I thought someone knew

  7. Hey YandereDev! I’m a huge fan of your game! Keep Up the good work. I love all the new changes, but there’s something on my mind from a very long time, Why the bathroom mirrors in the game don’t have any reflections? i think this tiny feature should be in the game. But that’s just my opinion, its your game. it will be nice if you do it, 🙂 Take care of yourself, eat healthy. 😉

  8. Hi Yandere Dev love your game and always follow your progress, I just watched this progress video and when you mention the now Spitful persona and how you didn’t want it to be easy to get away with murder I came up with a small idea. I’m not the type to give my ideas more so I’m not confident in them, but my friends told me its a decent idea that you might want to hear so I thought why not.

    I was thinking what if you do kill someone in front of another student with a spiteful persona and another option was they would blackmail you with a certain task to buy their silence such as kill another student they hate, get someone expelled etc.

    Its just an idea and who knows you might find some other way to use it for something else but keep up the good work and take care of your health XD

  9. Does anyone know why the camera no longer works when you try to kidnap the loanshark’s daughter and help Kokona by removing her father’s debt? I can get the camera but no option to use it. It doesn’t matter if its day or nighttime. 😦

  10. Pingback: A CREEPIER STANLEY PARABLE?! | Free Random Games | Board Game

  11. There is a BIG bug in this game. You can no longer save pictures to your photo gallery on your phone. Does not matter if you are in the photography club or not. This is a game breaker and I hope it gets fixed soon. 😦
