New Build, Update Preview, Poll, and other stuff

My next big feature isn’t ready yet, but I’ve prepared a new build with a ton of minor improvements, bug fixes, and miscellaneous additions…including a new cassette tape!

In case you’d like to see proof that a significant addition to the game is coming in the near future, I’ll give you a peek at something that is currently being worked on:

Keep in mind that this is a rough work-in-progress and that the end result is going to be more polished!

There are a few other things I’d like to do with this blog post. First up: a poll!

Which of these are your favorite Yandere Simulator characters?

You can pick multiple options! The results of this poll will determine something that will happen in the future, so please vote honestly!

Next, I wanted to mention that Kjech, the artist who drew all of the artwork for the Characters section of the official website, is now accepting commissions! So if you’ve always wanted the artist of Yandere Simulator to draw artwork for you, go check that out!

There are a couple more things I’d like to share with you today! To see those things and also see a list of everything that is new or different in the latest build, click “Continue Reading”!

March 8th was International Women’s Day, and IceAngel0203 celebrated by making this illustration of Ayano dressed as Rosie the Riveter! Even though I’m a week late, I still wanted to share the image with you!

Hikari-NJ made the above animation after I suggested the idea to her! I think it’s hilarious, and I wanted to share it!

Okay! With all of that out of the way, time to list everything that is different in the new build!

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed bug that would allow Yandere-chan to attend class while holding an object in her hands (this could allow Yandere-chan to hold a bucket in her hands during the Low Rep game over sequence, which was actually kind of hilarious to me).
  • Fixed bug that would cause Yandere-chan to break out of a killing animation if witnessed by four Heroic students (the game couldn’t pick between a Heroic takedown or a group takedown).
  • Fixed bug that made it impossible to complete the Mission Mode’s “clean up blood” objective if the player committed murder using a weapon that doesn’t spill blood.
  • Fixed bug that prevented Phone Addicts from contacting the police if they exited the school while the circular countdown timer above their heads was displaying.
  • Fixed bug that would make a button prompt display onscreen even if the object associated with the prompt was behind the camera and out of the camera’s view.
  • Fixed bug that would cause male screams to be audible from anywhere on the map when they should actually only be audible when in range of the student.
  • Fixed bug that prevented Phone Addicts from performing the appropriate reactions to murder if the murder occurred before they entered the school gate.
  • Fixed bug that would prevent blood from appearing on Yandere-chan’s body when she performed a medium-sanity attack with a short stabbing weapon.
  • Fixed bug that would cause Senpai to play the wrong animation during a Low-Reputation Game Over if school atmosphere was in its lowest state.
  • Fixed bug that would prevent the player from being able to dispose of a baseball bat in the incinerator if it was used for a stealth attack.
  • Fixed bug that would allow the player to push a girl off the school roof even after a fence had been put up around the rooftop.
  • Fixed bug that would cause panties to appear on the protagonist’s body while the Yandere-kun easter egg was active.
  • Fixed bug that would cause the red “Tag” circle to appear in the opposite direction of the targeted student.
  • Fixed bug that caused the teacher’s podium in the Science Club to float a few inches off the ground.
  • Fixed bug that would cause a Spiteful student to join his bullies in performing a group takedown.
  • Fixed bug that caused Yandere-chan’s fingernails to be very long in the Befriend/Betray cut-scene.
  • Fixed some graphical bugs that would occur underneath railing on the corners of the rooftop.
  • Fixed bug that caused Teachers to transform into Phone Addicts after witnessing murder.
  • Fixed bug that was preventing students from running to their destinations when late.
  • Fixed bug that was causing the chair in Yandere-chan’s basement to lack textures.
  • Fixed a few instances of curtains clipping into props throughout the school.
  • Fixed bug that was preventing Info-chan’s “Services” menu from displaying.
  • Fixed student portraits that had club leader armbands in weird locations.

Changes and Additions

  • The player can now use Info-chan’s Services menu to increase their reputation, decrease their rival’s reputation, obtain information about a student, and delay the police when they are en route to school.
  • Kokona will now react to Yandere-chan eavesdropping on her private Monday phone call. (This is relevant because Osana’s phone call event uses the same code.)
  • Decorated the incinerator area with a few props, since it’s going to receive more focus in the near future. It’s definitely not finished, though.
  • There is now an “Eavesdropping” warning at the top of the screen when Yandere-chan is eavesdropping on a private conversation.
  • Students will now react negatively if they spot Yandere-chan eavesdropping on another student’s private conversation.
  • Aiming a camera at a bully who is bullying a student will now cause the bully to prematurely end the bullying event.
  • There is now a DDR-style dance machine somewhere on school grounds. Eventually, I’ll explain its purpose.
  • Re-named “Bookworm Persona” to “Scholarly Persona” because “Bookworm” was a very poor choice of words.
  • The player can no longer talk to a character who is in the middle of an event.
  • From now on, students will investigate screams instead of ignoring them.
  • As of now, if all bullies are dead, a student can no longer be bullied.
  • Updated the warning text that displays after launching the game.
  • The player can now apologize for eavesdropping.
  • Added some new props near the shoe locker area.
  • Added a few decorations to the Gaming Club.
  • Added a new cassette tape to the game. There aren’t any huge plot twists in this tape, but it sets the stage for some future twists.

  1. *Sigh*
    I don’t know if this is supposed to happen, but, when Kokona took her phone call, I was on behind the door and she didn’t see me… I went to the group with her and everyone started saying “It’s not polite to easedrop” and “You’re still walking around like that?”
    Then out of no where BAM game over by Senpai… Dammit

  2. one thing i think will make the school feel more alive is if you kill a teacher or if a teacher is late the students in that class should look around confused and have the talking animations above their heads like they are asking each other why the teacher isn’t showing up.

    • Maybe if the teacher doesn’t show up after several minutes, teachers pet students should go to the nearest teacher to ask where their teacher is, social butterflies will start talking to each other in the class, cowards, loners, and students who are bullied will sit at their desks quietly, heroic students will go look around the school for the teachers, phone addicts will sit at their desks and use their phones, and spiteful students will walk out of class and wander around the school. That’s my opinion on what they should do.

    • Yes! That’s a good idea actually! In this way we just think that the teachers are “face slamming idiots that presses you hard in the ground” type of person. The teachers pet persona should look for the teachers to see if they are ok or why are they late.

    • I think students do look around already if the teacher isn’t there but it would be cool if the different personas acted that way. I also think if u interupt a class they look up I like that idea though.

  3. I think the big new feature has something to do with the delinquents. If it is the delinquents, does that mean that you are finally going to be able to fight them before they tackle you? Just a guess. ^-^

  4. I think it’s the animation of killing one of the martial arts with different weapons, because with the baseball bat before it did not can’t, Only with the knife, Now maybe it will be possible with all the weapons, and they put the bat as example.
    Well It’s my opinion ^^ I hope so, and I’d also like some animations to improve please yanderedev listen to meeee :’v ❤

    • Considering the person on the phone is her sugar daddy, I don’t think that would happen. He would probably be more worried about incriminating himself and would hand up as quickly as possible than actually helping her. People who take advantage of other people by throwing money at them and making demands when they know the other person isn’t in a position to say no are gross and self-serving, so this guy would probably be more concerned with saving his own skin than actually helping the girl he was sneaking around with.

  5. I foumd some bennefits of Yandere-Chan to joim the phone-addicts!
    Since they ușe their pjones everywhere, other studentă won’t consider Yan chan sispicious while taking photos of any kind, without being in the photografy club. Also, you couldn’t lose reputation when gossiping, since that is what you usually do, and your gossip will have more influence. also, since the bullies are your friends, they won’t expose you when commiting mirder. The best advantage could Be, that you will look cool! To joim the bullies, you must do favours for every girl.
    I also got another idea. If a student is your friend, they won’t tell someone, they won’t try to stop you etc.
    It would be cool that the cat could move. I have more ideas, and it’ll Be cool to consider them!

  6. I admit, I’m a little curious as to why the student council haven’t been featured on the official website’s character pages… But I am terribly excited to hear more about the DDR game and new updates! I really admire your work

  7. I’m adding a comment vote for Uekiya Engeika since she wasn’t included in the poll. I know she’s just a minor character, but I like her aesthetics & everything about her bio leads me to believe I’ll enjoy her character as well. Gardening Club players represent.

    • Yeah I felt similarly about Geiju, the President of the Art Club. I’m surprised the other non-rival club leaders weren’t on the list, considering they have their own bios on the Characters page.

  8. Eavesdropping Event is a little bit too far i think. Its okay thats it in the game but i havent any see so much attention of a little eavesdropping event. Example, when i listening Coconas call on the schoolgate, the event starts, but when i walking away, all students react of them, but they are too far away to realize that…the radius is too large for other students.

  9. I have a theory The DDR game is a mini game that can help you to fight so after you used the game if you get into a fight you can dodge the other person hits like the little video the yandere dev showed at the top of this page

  10. Hey, I got an idea that you can as a DLC for your Yandere game or at least a mod, It’s called Western mode.

    In ‘Western mode’ ,The setting take place in America unlike the setting of the original game where the setting is in Japan and high school students wear casual wear instead of the Japanese uniforms from the original game and are western and Caucasian ,Player will take on the role of the American version of ‘Yandere-chan’ or I like to call her Anna who probably wears a hoodie and just like the original mode in Yandere Simulator She will have a crush and stalk on a jock or a popular guy ( A western version of “Senpai”) and will take out her rivals secretly which consist of various stereotype of girls we watched from some teen drama shows including Cheerleaders.

    That way we will experience a game in a what if scenario if this game takes place in America.
    Another mode for the game will entitled ‘East vs. West’ where you play either ‘Yandere-chan’ from the original mode or the western ‘Yandere-chan’ from the western mode as they will take on each other’s rival and then each other to try to win the affection of one of their two ‘senpai’s’ -The eastern or the western. It will be similar to the Foreign Exchange Program but it will be the clash of two cultures as ‘Yandere-chan’ and her western counterpart will battle each other to see who is the superior one.

    And I also draw a character design for the western mode version of Yandere-chan along with a sneak peek of the East vs. west concept. https://i.imgur.com/r6RPAOZ.jpg

    So will you make that mode in your game in the future?

    EDIT note: Sorry about repeating the same comment ,I have a chrome memory problem in my computer which is what cause the imgur link from the earlier comment not working

    • For starters, it would probably be more likely for an American school to have at least a couple of students or faculty members who weren’t white, and I don’t see how you could make the characters in YanSim look any whiter than they already do anyway. Also, if this mod were implemented then some of the key features and mechanics in the game that are based on anime tropes and Japanese culture would be pointless or nonsensical, like the panty shots, the crazy hair on some of the students, the student-led after school cleanup time, the emphasis on club activity, quite a few character interactions, and even the concepts of yandere and of rivals taking a whole week to confess their feelings to somebody they like. I just think the western mod would cause too many problems and mess with the overall feel of the game.

  12. It would be awesome if you could get a picture of a bully bullying someone and use it against them. A lot of bad people don’t want to be seen as a bad person by everyone. Could be used as blackmail l, circulated to decrease reputation, or something equally bad.

  13. Well I guess I will be in the minority again if the current community statistics still hold when this game is released officially: I am a guy and I play Yandere Simulator. I hope it ends up with a jump mechanic some time, platforming is always cool but I choose not to follow development that closely because I know I’d end up one of those infuriating people who are just constantly “where’s Osana” “why isn’t Osana here yet??” etc etc..

    Assume YandereDev reads this post:
    Good luck with the development of the game I will definitely be buying it when its done I know its gonna be a unique game and a one off similar to how unique Minecraft used to be
    By the way: love your cryptic clues about updates, get rewarded with early info for being smart kind of thing

    Take that he doesn’t:
    He is guaranteed to read someone’s that wishes him good luck

  14. I think the animation could be the ‘mysterious object’ Yandere Dev was talking about
    hey, just my guess. no need to say it’s gonna be the delinquents on this one. I got’cha

  15. YandereDev oh YandereDev! Can you please add this feature? And if you do I’ll be dying with happiness!!! Ok I have something for Osana! She can be in a dance club! And the leader of the club will have a heroic persona so when Yandere Chan tries to kill someone while in the dance club the leader will attack her! I think the leaders name should be
    Undō- Athletic
    Shurui- Kind
    Genkakuna- Strict
    And the leader will be a girl 😋 and you might be asking how would this affect Yandere Chan? Well if she chooses to try to kill Osana while she is in the gym/ dance class Yandere Chan won’t be able to because Osana always invites Senpai to see her practice so if Senpai sees Yandere Chan kill Osana while they are in the gym that gives Yandere Chan an immediate game over…but I think that there should be a mini game of trying to get in the gym doors because If you don’t have a keycard for access to get in the gym then you’ll have to find a way to get in

    Anyway I hope YandereDev reads this and if you do…THANK YOU SOOO MUCH 😁😁😁☺️

      • That’s perfection! But I also have another idea! What if Taro (Senpai) goes to the lunchroom and eats with everyone? Maybe the cooking club should take place next to the cafeteria so if Yandere- Chan joins the cooking club she can go into the lunchroom a poison Osana’s lunch so no one would ever think it was her
        Procedure: Getting into the cooking club won’t be very easy…Kokona will be in there cooking and preping for lunch and there will be a cabinet behind her but if join the cooking club you automatically have acccess to the cabinet but if you don’t youll have to sneak behind Kokona and wait until she’s not looking to open the cabinet but of course the cabinet will have a lock so you can get a screwdriver and open it inside will be cooking ingredients but Osana is allergic to one of them (peanuts) if you put them in her lunch she will most likely die if she doesn’t make it to the nurse in time

        Bug Fixes: I notice that when you choose certain panties and you come to school the panties that you’ve chosen won’t be the same they will just be the ones Ayano started out with can you please fox that Yandere Dev?

    • OMG, You are SO talanted in creating events. Can I add something? For example, if player joined the club, became the best friend of the leader in the club, player will able to ask the leader to give you keycard, because you “forgot something” in the club room, so you have a chance to unscrew the railings and when it will be the club activity, Osana will start first (because she has the highest score) and then *BOOM* she falls, breaks something and she’s in hospital for 3 weeks, so she will be not able to confess her love to Taro Yamada (Senpai).

  16. What if you could break someone in a different way so they’ll become your servant? Then you can take them back to school, and they’ll look normal. They won’t tell anyone that Yan-chan did something unless she told them to tell, so you can get away with murder in front of them, but only if they and other servants are the only one(s) to see you kill someone. AND you could tell them to dispose of bodies, weapons, etc.

  17. Guess what I found in the game files? The animations for SNAP, well i don’t have anything to look at them with but their name is f02_snap_00 I also found the sleuth persona animations: f02_sleuthWalk_00, f02_sleuthSprint_00, f02_sleuthScan_00, f02_sleuthReport_00,f02_sleuthReact_00,f02_sleuthIdle_00

  18. My God, I’ve been waiting for a new update, literally wake up I check your blog with the hope that you upload a new update but unfortunately today was not that day, but if you take it surely is something incredible, I love your work on Yandere simulator, Keep it up (I hope the update comes out soon :c)

  19. I feel like Info-Chan should have a crush on Senpai and be getting us to eliminate her rivals, just so she can get us by earning our trust.
    BAM. Ending boss battle.
    (Info-Chan should be powerful)

  20. ami I would like that couples can be formed, I mean any couple like budo and saki.no just riku and kokona is just a subject

  21. hey, i had a question.
    i saw a person do a video on how to kill the student council. it never worked out for me even though i do the exact same as the person who made the video.
    did yanderedev make it impossible to kill the student council ?

    • Probably. Go again and see that persons video and look at the bottom and check for the version; if is before 15th update is probably fixed now (you can try that version and try it anyways)
