EDIT: I’ve uploaded a new build with bug fixes! If you downloaded the original Halloween build, you should upgrade to the new one!
If you’ve been visiting this blog for a few years, you’re probably familiar with a few of my annual traditions. Some of them are pretty silly, but when a tradition has been going for several years in a row, I have a hard time breaking it. So, just like last year, and the year before that, and the year before that, and the year before that, it’s time for another…
Yandere Sim Spooktacular!
What’s a “Spooktacular”, you ask? Well, the name probably makes it sound a lot more grandiose than what it really is. In short, a “Spooktacular” is when I take a couple of days to produce a horror-themed minigame that pays tribute to one of my favorite games. The first one was Yanvania, and the second one was Yandertale, and the third one was Midori Forest. So, what have I got prepared for this year?
Because I already produced two minigames this year (the Miyuki shoot-em-up and the Light Music Club’s rhythm game) I decided not to make a third minigame. I wouldn’t want to become known as “MinigameDev”, after all! I want to spend the majority of my time on developing the core game, so I didn’t make a minigame this year. Instead, I decided to very quickly put something into the game that I’ve been planning for a very long time. It’s horror-themed, which makes it perfect for Halloween!
You want to know what it is? Well, here’s a hint, in the form of artwork drawn by Lincoln Sherlocks:
As far as hints go, this one is about as subtle as a slap to the face, isn’t it? You can probably already tell exactly what it is!
A new build is now available, containing some bug fixes and a couple of Halloween treats. Because some YouTubers have already figured out the steps to unlock this treat, and I feel guilty that they have to do it all over again, I’ll type out some tips to make the process a bit smoother:
- To learn exactly what you must do, visit the Demon Realm and speak to the Empty Demon.
- If the Empty Demon isn’t present in the Demon Realm, it means that you eliminated a key character too early. Reset the week to revive everyone, and try again, but this time try not to let that character die too soon.
- With the debug menu open, the left ctrl key teleports you to the Occult Club. Using the Void Goddess and teleportation, it’s possible to accomplish the demon’s request very quickly – I was able to do it in 3 minutes and 15 seconds. (I wonder if anyone can beat my time?)
- Once the demon’s request is fulfilled, you will gain a new ability that can be toggled on or off by giggling. Approach a student and you’ll see a new option become available!
EDIT: If your Halloween simply isn’t complete without a horror-themed Yandere Simulator minigame, then you should consider checking out “YandereDev’s GREATEST NIGHTMARE”, a minigame created by AMZE!
It’s simple, but charming! You can download it at AMZE’s blog!
