New build! Here’s a brief overview of what’s new:
- Selfie Mode
- School gate murder method
- New area at school
- New animations for dumbbell weapon
- Ability to wield a fire extinguisher as a weapon
- Four new characters
- One new task
To read a more elaborate list of everything that is new / changed / different in the latest build, please scroll down past this amazing artwork of Yandere-chan fighting a giant Titan version of Megami, created by MulberryArt!
You can find a larger version at the Wallpapers page of the official website!
Changes and Additions
- When aiming Yandere-chan’s camera, you can now switch to a “selfie” camera angle. The selfie angle allows you to be more discreet when taking a photo, because bystanders will assume that you’re taking a photo of yourself, rather than their face or their panties. In the selfie angle, your goal is to take a photograph of something to the side of Yandere-chan, rather than directly in the center of the screen. You can press a button to activate a little guide that shows you where your target should be located on the screen.
- It is now possible to open/close the school gate by pressing a button near the spot where the gym teacher stands in the morning. You cannot press the button if the gym teacher is nearby.
- Added a Japanese-style garden area nearby the incinerator area. It’s an experiment, and I might decide to resize it / redesign it / move it elsewhere in the future.
- When pushing/pulling the dumpster, it is now possible to use the arrow keys in addition to the WASD keys or control stick.
- Dumbbells now have unique combat animations, instead of re-using the baseball bat animation set.
- From now on, whenever Yandere-chan performs a Task for a student, her reputation will increase.
- Added new attack animations for the dumbbells. (Current sound effects are placeholder.)
- Adjusted the appearance of the cafeteria area. (It has to do with an upcoming feature!)
- Yandere-chan can now pick up fire extinguishers and use them as weapons.
- Added “Now Loading” text when reloading a mission in Mission Mode.
- Added a couple of new hairstyles for Yandere-chan.
- Added 4 new characters to the game! All of them are male students who are not members of any club.
- Two of the new characters are currently very basic; I have meaningful utilities planned for them, but at this current point in time, there is nothing special about them.
- One of the new characters has a task. If you complete his task, he will provide you with one spare uniform per day.
- One of the new characters trips and falls at the entrance of the school. When he falls, his head lands right where the school gate is. If you time it properly, you can squash his head by pushing the button that closes the gate right before he trips and falls. (This feature is practically an easter egg, so perfect timing is required! It may be a rival elimination method in the future…)
- Fixed bug that would cause Martial Arts students to glitch out if a Cooking Club member handed them food *after* the player had opened the “choose your sparring partner” window.
- Fixed bug that would cause Yandere-chan to be stuck in a dragging/carrying corpse animation if she was dragging/carrying a corpse when the police arrived.
- Fixed bug that would cause some of a student’s accessories to turn invisible when viewed through the “Witness Camera” after a character witnessed murder.
- Fixed bug that caused Yandere-chan to perform a club activity on the gym stage even if a memorial service was currently occupying the stage.
- Fixed bug that could cause the wrong button prompt to appear above a student’s head after they were fed by a member of the Cooking Club.
- Fixed bug that caused females students to hold their phones at really weird angles when waiting for club activities to begin.
- Fixed bug that would cause Yandere-chan to position her hands incorrectly if she was laughing while carrying clothing.
- Fixed bug that caused the bullies’ bodies to turn invisible at certain camera angles when they were sunbathing.
- Fixed bug that would cause Miyuji to make air guitar noises in situations where she shouldn’t be doing that.
- Fixed bug that caused gardening club girls to glitch out when appearing in Yandere-chan’s basement.
- Fixed bug that prevented Kokona from showing signs of attraction towards boys with glasses.
- Fixed bug that would cause Nemesis to spawn with a Cooking Club accessory on her head.
- Fixed bug that prevented an outline from appearing around Yandere-chan in Ebola Mode.
- Fixed bug that made Riku’s eyes turn grey if he was told to change his hairstyle.
At the time that I uploaded this build, I was actually halfway finished implementing the next big feature, a core gameplay mechanic, but I didn’t want to delay the build, so I paused development of that feature. Now that the build is out, I’m super-excited to get back to work on that feature!

Niceu, I can’t wait to play when I get home
On January 17th, 2009, I streamed a video game for the first time. It completely changed my life; once I experienced the thrill of playing video games while interacting with a big audience, I didn’t want to do anything else! For a period of several years, I streamed every day, usually for 12 hours straight!
Every year, during the month of January, I take two days off from work to celebrate the anniversary of the first time I ever streamed a video game by replaying the first two games I ever streamed. On January 17th, I play Resident Evil 4, and on January 19th, I play Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon.
If you’d like to join me, you can find me at twitch.tv/yanderedev , starting at 12:00 noon in the PST timezone. Even if you only pop in for a few minutes just to say hello, I would be very happy to see you there!
how did you dicipher it ?
It’s just a substitution cypher, so one can either do it manually, which is time consuming but pretty easy, or I think there are websites that will do it for you.
Hey YandereDev for titan mode can the ayano have the flying gear and wear the surevy army uniform
Thank you for doing that!!
how did you know what it said?
The message Yanderedev used was the Al Bhed language from Final Fantasy X. putting the message in a translater gives you what you read

YAYYY thank u Yanderedev
Would be fun if you streamed YanSim instead hahahaha.
twitch doesnt wanna tho XD
Right, Twitch is a beach.
I feel like the rival for the new eliminatiom method could be for Muja Kina since she is very clumsy. I don’t know it’s just a thought.
and then the current guy you do it on is her suitor 🤨
But I think the nurse won’t be entering the gate like a student I think she would spawn in the Infirmary when you start the 7th week of the game.
Holy moly !! I’m so excited for Jay from the kubz scouts to play this new update❤️❤️
can’t wait for the myths xD
Me too! Just decided to check blog, time to check YouTube!!! Hope to see THAT DUDE.
Thanks, YandereDev! ❤
he did and was AWSOME
Jay is that DUDE
attack on rival
SE SEND DAS ESSESN UND WIR SIND DIE YEAGER!!!!
The boy wih pink hair and stays in infirmary has a crush on Muja(it’s obvious)
That’s not how Pink Diamond’s hair is supposed to look like on the back at all
What if the guy that trip on the gate is muja kina son
I don’t think she has a son…
Lol Muja is only a few years older than him. He is most likely her suitor.
yanderedev how can i activate the selfie mode?
go on camera and it will say at the top
The last fixed bug in this blog post makes me laugh for some reason
my launcher won’t allow me to update the game. even when i force reinstall, it still stays on the 4 jan build, anyone got any ideas for how to fix it?
same for me!
Dudes, use a mediafire or mega link. The launcher has not been working since 2018…
Why can I not update the game??
Download the game through Mediafire, or somewhere else but not the game’s site because you will have to wait a day for the launcher to know that there is a new update (i usually download new updates through Mediafire)
new build new THAT DUDE VID WILL BE OUT
okay yandere dev if your reading this then, yeah I looked in the json files
bug: when I murder a student the bullies don’t do nothing just the gaming club
There’s an address on the official website to send bug reports in.
Megami would be a Titan.
iS dAt a dELtArUnE RefEReNce??????
The dumbell attack animations are so bad, I hope they get replaced with better ones.
Oh cool! I think a lot of gamers didn’t see how the pink one is so clumsy, so they couldn’t do the elimination. Really cool
Nice! I love all the new Characters!
how do you use a mod
thank you yandere dev, very cool
I actually made a Attack on Titan fan art a while ago…
Please make Otohiko Meishi a gay character, Yandere Simulator need that pleaaaase
School gate as a murder weapon? you mean like someone gets caught in it as it’s closing and gets crushed?
I was about to update the game but my mom told me to stop
Don’t remove that garden, it makes a lot harder to dispose a body, I love it ❤
can you fix the bug of when you hold a student with its head off the students can see you holding the body
Woah! So much stuff! Good job!
Can you fix the bug:
That when Ayano change Genka Taku (The computer club leader) and when he is in the class so the bullies stares at nothing?
The guy who is in sewing room was still holding in class pink uniform, and the sounds of sewing machine, when he must be in phone
and I mean change Genka’s reputation
There is a bug with the new character: pink uniform stucks in his hands with the sound of sewing machine)))) It`s funny) (also greetings from Russia, we love you and Yan.Sim.)
Guys, if you found an actual and reproducible bug, email him with detailed info and pics! Writing them down in the comments section is pointless.
I would love to see the Taskbar work. It doesn’t write anything, what you have to do, who you got it from, nothing. I hope Yandev does a sweep and ads 10 new tasks for some students and makes the task menu work.
The Taskbar has been working since 2015, however due to some problem it doesnt work for now
rip Sota Yuki
Since we have the selfie mode, you should lose popularity points if you directly take a picture of a student (like -1/-2) unless if you’re apart of the photography club
THE NEW TASK GUY (I FORGOT HIS NAME) IS ADORABLE ND I LOVE HIM
I absolutely love the art! And a little suggestion, what if when yan-chan’s sanity goes down her facial expressions gets creepier and creepier when in selfie mode?
It slows down when a FPS appears in school and a long download of 4 GB in school. Optimize the game to optimize the game. Please play unbearable !!!!!!!!!!!!!

EXCUSE ME FOR YAPPING BUT AREN’T THE 4 NEW CHARACTERS CREATED FOR THE SAKE OF YAOI OR SMTHING THEY ARE SO RELATED TO EACH OTHER!!!
OH DON’T WORRY I WON’T DISCUSS IT ANY FURTHER YANDEREDEV! THANKYOU FOR THOSE WONDERFUL BACKGROUND STORIES THO! XD
And also thank you for new elimination methods on guys, if you make them guinea pigs with that purpose. ^^ I did say that I wanted to see new elimination methods on the guys and now you implemented two!!! (not actually for guys but for now they only works on male characters) So I’m really happy! Thank you so much Yandere Dev!!! ~^^~
Yandere Dev, can you add more students? 90 is a rather small number for a high school, even if said school is only for the ‘best of the best’. You once said that about half of the students would not be in any clubs. Also, regarding their walk to school, it doesn’t feel like a real crowd because all the students are organized by clubs and not walking in a real haphazard clump (like a crowd).
Sending a rival home, causing them to trip over and then pressing the button is the perfect crime!
there’s a lot of things you could tell me about yandev and i’d believe, but the fact that he apparently watches steven universe wasn’t one of them. deadass thought i couldn’t be surprised by this dude anymore. and then i cycle through the hair styles and see pink fucking diamond’s hair and it kills me instantly.
