July 1st Bug-Fixing Build

July 3rd Edit: I uploaded a minor bug-fixing build. Changelog at the bottom of the post.

I’m very, very sorry; the Mysterious Obstacle isn’t ready yet! I hope you’re not too disappointed with me…

I was genuinely trying my hardest to implement the Obstacle by July 1st, but as the deadline grew closer, it became increasingly apparent that July 1st was never a realistic deadline to begin with. I could write an entire blog post about the numerous things that hindered my progress over the past 2 weeks, but it would probably sound like I’m whining, and I don’t want to subject you to that. So, instead, I’ll just do the best I can to implement the Obstacle ASAP.

Unfortunately, there is an additional complication that you should be aware of. Anime Expo is happening in a few days, and it’s extremely important to me to attend the convention. It’s like a mandatory religious pilgrimage for me; abstaining from the expo is simply not an option. This actually throws a big monkey wrench into the Mysterious Obstacle situation…

On July 3rd, I will be traveling to Los Angeles so that I can attend Anime Expo from July 4th~7th. On July 8th, I will be returning home from Los Angeles. So, if I can’t complete the Obstacle before July 3rd, it means that my next opportunity to resume work on the Obstacle won’t be until July 8th. What unfortunate timing! I really, really didn’t want the Obstacle to be delayed that long, but that’s what the situation currently looks like.

I’m very sorry to anyone who is disappointed by this news. Hopefully, you can forgive me and wait until July 8th~15th to see me finally unveil the Obstacle. I’ve put a lot of work into her, and I really, really hope that she’s going to be worth the wait!

In the meantime, I have something more positive to share with you; yesterday was my birthday, and a countless number of people sent encouraging messages to me, expressing their appreciation for Yandere Simulator, and wishing me a happy birthday. Two of the most touching messages actually came from the Russian and Ukrainian fan communities, who have consistently sent me very sweet and heartwarming videos for the past 5 years. Here’s what they created for me this year:

I was feeling really sad when I realized that I wouldn’t be able to implement the Obstacle by July 1st, but seeing these heartfelt videos filled me with strength and motivation to keep working as hard as I can! I’m super grateful that the Russian and Ukrainian communities still have faith in me; it means the world to me!

As long as I am sharing videos, I’d also like to share a song created by Michaela Laws, the voice of Yandere-chan; it’s a song from Yandere-chan’s perspective, and Michaela did an absolutely outstanding job writing lyrics that appropriately convey the nature of the character – as she always does! Please check out her work!

I feel guilty if I let two weeks pass without releasing a new build, so I’ve prepared a bug-fixing build. It doesn’t contain the Mysterious Obstacle, but it’s a lot less buggy than the previous build. Click “Continue Reading” to see a changelog!

Changes, Fixes, Additions

  • While implementing some of the events that occur between Osana and the “Mysterious Obstacle”, I discovered that there simply wasn’t enough time in the day for all of Osana’s events to take place. To provide Osana with a longer span of time for her events to take place in, I’ve slowed down the game’s clock; the span of a minute in Yandere Simulator is now approximately 1.5x longer than it was before.
  • Adjusted courtyard doors so that it should be less likely (or impossible) for characters to get stuck between the doors and the wall.
  • Removed stockings from Ryoba in the intro cutscene. (She didn’t actually wear stockings when she was in high school. Oops!)
  • Fixed bug that would allow the player to walk on top of the east and west fountains at the corners of the school.
  • Fixed bug that prevented the Light Music Club minigame from unloading after the player had finished playing it.
  • Updated some characters’ likes and dislikes to be more consistent with what I’ve said about them in the past.
  • Fixed bug that would cause Sleuths to sit in midair instead of actually performing their sleuthing duties.
  • Fixed bug that preventing Yandere-chan from entering combat animations in the delinquent combat minigame.
  • Small aesthetic adjustments to several characters’ hair textures (namely the nurse and teachers).
  • Fixed bug that allowed Yandere-chan to take out a weapon during the delinquent combat minigame.
  • Fixed bug that caused Senpai to fail to animate during the low-reputation game over sequence.
  • Fixed bug that allowed the player to open the map while a Tutorial window was displaying.
  • Fixed bug that prevented Yandere-chan from facing a delinquent who was charging at her.
  • Fixed bug that caused Yandere-chan to wear two pairs of panties simultaneously.
  • Re-balanced the price of purchasing a sedative from Info-chan.
  • Replaced music that plays during Shipgirl easter egg.
  • Fixed typos in the Discord Rich Presence text.
  • By the way, it’s worth mentioning that, recently, several dozen of my YouTube videos were translated into Turkish by Metehan ÖRTEN! I’d like to publicly thank him for his helpful contributions!

July 3rd Bug-Fixing Build

  • Fixed bug that would cause Yandere-chan to perform a weird animation at the start of the day in Mission Mode.
  • Fixed problem with Ryuto’s hair texture that made a weird seam appear at the back of his head.
  • Fixed bug that caused the Mission Mode menu scene to be overly saturated.
  • Removed a column which was placed in a hallway as a test.
  • Restored a character who had been disabled.

  1. Happy belated birthday Yandere Dev! We extremely are patient and we’ll never be disappointed in you! Don’t ever give up or lose hope! You have a great fandom that will stick by your side no matter what!

  2. Don’t worry! We’re all going to wait as long as you need. Besides, you’re SO close to implementing Osana into the game! I have a feeling it won’t be long from now on.
    Happy birthday from Slovakia!!!🇸🇰🙂

  3. Yo Yandere-Dev, thats no problem at all that the Mysterious Obstacle can delay.
    I am happy that you go to the Anime Expo instead 🙂

  4. Happy belated Birthday! I can’t thank you enough for your efforts. This game has made me laugh and impressed. I’ve been following the development for a while and every update has made me happy! Take your time. Thinking about it, if you had released Osana two years ago, the animations and events would’ve been different, but since you’ve taken your time, Osana has turned extremely unique and amazing! Keep uo the great work!

  5. Hello YandereDev. I started playing a short time ago and I love your work very much. I admire you too much for your genius to ride piece by piece of the game. Do not stay down thinking we’ll blame you for being late, on the contrary, be proud of your work. Happy birthday from Brazil ❤

  6. hello first happy birthday later hahaha I like all the effort that is given to the games and I would like the subtitles to be changed to other languages, such as thanks in Spanish and greetings from Argentina

  7. Happy birthday yandere Dev hope you had a amazing birthday and plz don’t rush in the development you are going to get your self tried and I forgive you and I sure everyone else does have a amazing day and stay happy 😃☺️🙂

  8. Happy birthday yandere Dev hope you had a amazing birthday and plz don’t rush in the development you are going to get your self tried and I forgive you and I sure everyone else does have a amazing day and stay happy

  9. Stay calm Yandere Dev. After all, it’s your game and no one forbids to you take a break from time to time. You work only when you have time and only when you can and feel able. ( by the way, very cute emoticon with Yandere 🙂 )

  10. Happy belated birthday, hope it was a good one! Don’t give a second thought to the delay for Anime Expo – it’s awesome that you get to go, and even more so that it’s a regular thing! Have fun for all of us who can’t make it to the con and don’t push yourself too hard on development!

  11. devdev i dont know why but when i was playing after sometime ayano was moving straight foward by herself and i couldnt go left so i quit and came back in but it was still doing it…. and also HANAKO MY FAV

  12. happy belated birthday. I have been around ever since 2015 but there is one thing that is bitter in your game you stated when you got a concept art of Ayano in April 2014 ”It’s important to me to make sure that the game’s protagonist has a unique and memorable appearance. I’d like her to be easily recognizable so that people can say, “Oh, I know that character, I know what game she’s from!” and tell her apart from other anime girls. I’d like Yandere-chan to be the “face” of the game, appear in the promotional art, etc.” but you know the Ayano in the game right now is the opposite of what you wanted and well it seems like everyone forgot who the real Ayano is and looks like and it feels like Ayano will not be the real her in a long way.

    • I think that actually a lot of people know Ayano already, and there’s no need for her to change now because there’s so much fan art of her with her normal (ponytail) appearance.

      (If you are talking about her first hair with the little “horns”, you can press the “H” key and play with that hair)

  13. I would like the videos to be subtitled in Spanish 😦 In short, I hope you had a happy birthday and we appreciate what you do, thanks for everything, greetings from Mexico!

  14. the ghost is me
    also your name is alex? i didnt know love your work happy birthday devpai

  15. Happy belated birthday, YandereDev! While I’m excited to see the Obstacle, I also understand that things happen. I’d rather a less stressed Dev and a good product than anything else. I look forward to everything you have in store for us! Thank you for being so persistent and determined in giving us something amazing, and thank you for forgiving the less patient of us. You’re doing wonderfully! Thanks again!

  16. When I turned in Yandere vision to check on Senpai, his red string of fate led to the fountain.

    Yandev, you trying to tell us something? That senpai’s true destined love is a fountain and not my devoted semi-murderous self? /:T

  17. A character who has been disabled? WHO?? Anyone plz tell me who is that Ọ^O
    Anyway, take ur time and relax Dev. It’s fine to just enjoy urself u know? Can’t be mad at u because you’ve worked hard ☺️

  18. Hello yandere, I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday, I even wanted to make a video but I do not have the financial conditions to do it. and I have a hard face I’m from Brazil and my country is well played but we’re happy I just wanted to know what you think about Brazil

  19. What does the “restored character” mean?? I know it’s rival chan but I’m not quite understanding that. I’m probably just being dumb

  20. For some reason, when I try to do the club activity for the photography club, it won’t allow me to do the activity, even if it’s 5:00 PM, or allow me to view the club info. It only allows me to quit the club; confirm or deny. I deny but then try again. Sometimes I might go into the other topics menu with the Photography club, and it still won’t let me do anything other than saying bye.

  21. For all the people that don’t know which character got restored (which character is back in the game), it was Rival-Chan

  22. Hello, yanderedev I know it’s hard to keep the mysterious obstacle, I do not care when you delay, you have the time you want, I know some people are impatient, but I believe you, will probably have some deslikes in my comment but I will not mind.

  23. Happy birthday Yandere-Dev! Don’t sweat the details, and just enjoy your time at Anime Expo. We’ll all be here when you get back. ^_^

  24. What Yandere dev should do is only release a build when their a big update. This would solve the problem of yandere dev having to rush builds out as soon as possible. I honestly think he should not post anymore builds of yandere simulator until Osana is ready to be added to the game, and everything that Yandere dev wants to add to the game for the demo. I don’t mind how long it takes. Hell i would wait 40 years for osana.

  25. Yandere dev Yandere dev please don’t stay down becouse of the people who hate you or who says that you are not working and just doing anything , and remmber not just the American people who loves your game the Arabians too for example me Iam from Egypt , don’t be sad or dispointed , don’t look at the people who hates you but look at who loves you!
