Hi! I fixed some bugs and made some improvements to the game!

To see a list of everything that was fixed or changed in the latest build, scroll down past this super-cute artwork by emichii_!

Fixes, Changes, Additions

  • When starting a new game, it is now possible to skip directly to the Calendar screen from the Senpai Creation screen, bypassing the intro animation and Info-chan text message conversation.
  • The “Skip” button prompt at the post-credits Headmaster scene will now display either controller buttons or keyboard buttons, depending on what input device the player is currently using.
  • Fixed bug that prevented the “Purchase Dark Secret” service from functioning if the player purchased it and then reset the day.
  • Fixed bug that prevented the Senpai in the Amai cutscene from reflecting the appearance of your custom-designed Senpai.
  • It is no longer possible for a teacher to become alarmed by Yandere-chan if a student is about to chase Yandere-chan.
  • Corrected misinformation in one of the Scheme descriptions for making Raibaru stop hanging out with Osana.
  • Fixed bug that allowed Yandere-chan to clip into much of the furniture in the stalker’s house.
  • Fixed bug that made the screen become blurry if the Enigma easter egg was active.
  • Fixed bug that would allow you to see Osana falling over at the title screen.
  • There is now a button for skipping the “You’re safe now” cutscene.

    • I tried taking a photo of a corpse for the Wednesday picture rival thingie, and a teacher found blood and called the police. When the police cut scene came, right after they said the students were free to leave, the screen went black and the music kept playing.

  1. So now that one rival is done, the rest’ll fall in place a lot faster, right? I just want those haters to lay off. No matter whether they were right or wrong, they still went way too far hacking and doxxing YanDev like that.

    • Yeah, he’ll be able to reuse assets to make the other rivals. If anything, they’ll become progressively quicker to make as time goes on

    • Well I think the others won’t take as long because now the game can process a special character, either way Osana in all only took around 6 months in total. However if the crowdfunding campaign is successful it will probably cut the process in half.

      • The way they responded to what they accused him of was much worse than what they accused him off. Hypocrites.

    • Half of those “Haters” are brainwashed by misinformation spread by people are are too impatient to wait for a game because they think every game has to finish at a certain time forgetting key elements like animations and voices are needed. They also harp on the past deeds of Alex as if he’s not human and they are saints who’s never done anyone wrong. He’s explained every single thing he’s been accused of and shown proof as to how it was taken out of context. People want to see him fail because he came up with a fun concept and game idea, they want that, but they don’t want him to own it or have credit for it, that’s why people push these modders and carbon copies of the game, but initially are being hypocrites because they’re still supporting what Alex created and are constantly following the development of the game. =’D If kick starter is a success, the game will be finished so much faster, if not, he will still finish the game.

      • Doesn’t matter if what they heard about him was right or wrong, their actions upon it were very clearly wrong.

    • Let’s hope the haters do not have a negative impact on the Crowdfunding Campaign. There are features i want to see in the Final Game. A Female Senpai, School Customization, and backstory to the game. Let’s hope the Crowdfunding Campaign meets it’s additional goals. That is if the campaign gets hundreds of thousands of supporters enough to make it a huge success

  2. now that i think about it you introduced an elimination method “driven to murder” but it seems like osana doesn’t have that elimination method. did you cancel this feature? no need to answer if you it’s a waste of time. take your time improving the demo !

    • To be honest, I am pretty sure that might be rival-specific.There might be a rival that has a more extreme backstory to make more sense
      also don’t forget that a similar feature already exists, which is kidnapping and making a mind-slave kill someone.

    • the driven to murder elimination method is currently just a concept and wont be added unless the kickstarter is successful, but if it was applied to osana i bet it would be that her stalker kills her cat so she’s driven to murder him

    • The “driven to murder” elimination was never in the game, it was just a proposal… It’s probably going to be in the final game, but not the demo

  3. Hmm, now that story mode is actually advancing, I wonder if we’ll see a boy who would stalk main character and tried to confess his love feelings to yandere. I mean it would be an interesting concept to actually make potential stalker/witness of player’s crimes and look at their reaction (I’m wondering if they’d open eyes and realize who they love, or actually tried to help, or even get rid of senpai, lol)…

  4. Is it just me or am I not able to start the game? The E key works fine on the menu screen but whenever I try and play a saved file, nothing happens. The same applies to mission mode as well.

  5. For some reason, the game won’t start. I get to the menu screen but whenever I try and load or start a game, nothing happens.

  6. Something I Have Noticed In Recent Updates Is That It Won’t Let Me Start A New Game In The First And Second Slots, Even Though I Have Deleted My Progress In Said Slots.

  7. It’s nice to See you’re working to fix as many hugs as possible.

    However, now that you released the Demo, what will you do after fixing bugs?

    • Issue with that is that the stalker isn’t trying to kill Osama or anything, and I’m unsure if he’d “keep her”? its be almost guaranteed she’d get free either by her own will, her parents or his sister. In which, Osana would expose Ayano.

      Also, that just feels really gross.

      • I think Osana will be traumatized and how does she really know it was actually Ayano, yes she talked with her and sent her the address but for all Osana knows another student did it. The stalker would traumatized Osana and get kept like a pet. And I think he will pretend that Osana is his girlfriend and would threaten her to keep her

  8. I tried to frame raiburu for murdering one of the bullies but the police just found raiburu’s fingerprints over and over again i had to shut down

    • Yeah it was kinda similar for me I sent a random student to kill osana while she stabbed her it was ing out and osana just stood back up like nothing happened and then when school ended it broke after looking at the fingerprints and picture looked messed up as well

  9. Hey Yanderedev, congrats on the release of the demo! However, i’ve noticed a bug that happens when you take Osana to school as a mindslave on Friday… She will still perform her Friday events such as creating the playlist for Senpai on the computer lab, and Musume will also try to talk to her… I know these events bugs are not game-breaking, but it is kind of weird to see a broken Osana talking and performing events like normal, so i hope you will fix these bugs! Once again, congrats on the demo! Have a nice day! 🙂

  10. Will it be possible to edit keyboard controls again? I was used to changing the movement keys from W, A, S, D to the Up, Down, Left and Right arrow keys on my keyboard.

  11. Awesome work thus far!

    I guess my first question is about the Announcement Room. I know it will be used for security in the future but what about when normal, who will it be used by? The Staff? Or students? Will there be announcements at different times of the day or just mornings and afternoons? Is this everyday or a weekly thing? If you were to implement weather would they talk about it? Upcoming exams? School field trips? Holidays? Special events like an upcoming play or special guest? A recycled introduction of motivation for students, and possibly an anthem (I’m from Canada and we always stood and sang O Canada). Would they talk about mysteries activities or events, caution and warn others? Remind students of the rules and so forth? Saying they found unsuspicious missing items? Talk about missing students and ask for prayers for their safe return or students to report any information? Talk about news of the city or town they live in? Sport Events? I can see numerous opportunities that could be used. I remember in Persona 4 Golden how at the beginning on the intercom a staff member told the students to stay in their classes until they had further information from the police and giving the students orders to return home immediately. And that just created a new question, if a teacher has a teacher’s pet report a body and it’s still there and they call the police why don’t they call or inform the rest of the staff that there is a murderer on the loose? That one of them could warn the students in the Announcement Room to go to their home room or hide, or have some type of cautionary action like in school shootings. I know it would be time consuming and more harder but I think it would make it more challenging and difficult and make more consequences for the player for murder. And maybe to prevent this the player would have to tamper or break or mess things up in the Announcement Room to buy more time before the school is in panic. Or till the Staff member goes to the Head Master who may or may not have access to his own system to access the intercoms.
    Also, for burning any student, I think there should be consequences for burning a student inside the school. I am wondering if the school will have fire alarms/smoke detectors and a fire sprinkler system. It would be more realistic to a school and make players cautious and mindful of were they should set someone on fire. Also, if the player uses a fire alarm and press the button or pull down depending there should also be consequences if the player tries to use it as a prank or to mess with the school. Like with the school roof and the punishment of a fence the fire alarm would be more secure, the second time would be glass and the third time could be with a key that only staff, possibly the Student Council and maybe Club Leaders would have access with keys (or perhaps cameras aimed to them). Also, with adding a fire distinguisher to the game as a weapon it should also be used as its purpose. If the player or other characters see something or someone on fire, they should try putting it out, I can see Staff, Student Council, Heroics and those who see their love ones on fire run and get the fire distinguisher and put them out. Also, I think dropping a fire distinguisher/ fire extinguisher in the incinerator would be naturally dangerous (and anything that is pressurized and could explode) and should be cleaned of blood, but if blood is found on it then I think as a punishment it should also be more secure similar to the alarm.

    Also, I was thinking there should be consequences of stealing items particulary keys. If a student has lost something, they should report it and ask friends to help find it or themselves looking for it like Osana. If you frame someone for stealing a student’s property, they should hold a grudge or show resentment to the one they think stole from them, spreading rumors and lowering reputation or even ruining friendships. Also, for students who lost their things or have it stolen they should be more cautious for their belongings making it harder in the future. Also, if key’s go missing there should be concern and consequences for the players actions, locks being changed, and those who keys were stolen being more cautious and aware of their surroundings. And if caught with stolen items and key’s the punishment should be harsh. Also, if items go missing in certain parts of the school, mostly club room items that club members would notice they should also be awry and cautious that someone is stealing from them. And if the player is spotted red-handed by the one they stole from or their friends the player should be reported and that they should be punished by having a grudge on them by the one they stole from and their friends.

    Also, a side note I would love if you added the flower option to the desk of a deceased student or a bullied student. Also, once you fully have the school completed and mapped out you should have a ‘Fire Escape Plan’/’Fire Emergency Evacuation Plan’ it would make the school more real and help players locate their position, Fire Exit, Assembly Point, fire distinguisher/ fire extinguisher and fire alarms are. Also I would hope you will be fallowing a school system similar to persona of exams, holidays and special events and so forth of the year, and the possibilities to do during holidays and such. Also, I think a School Store would be beneficial to the player, it could be used to buy gifts for rivals for the suitors to give, gifts for Senpai, as well as other possibilities. And I have a solution to the person behind the counter and it’s thanks to the drawing in the ‘Let’s Examine Persona – Part 2’ video. The illustration looks bored and tired, so what if they suffer from boredom and fall asleep? I had the idea from the video game ‘Disney’s Aladdin in Nasira’s Revenge’, in the game Aladdin has two types of weapons, his sword and a throwing weapon, in the level of Agrabah there is a man selling apple’s and is looking around cautiously until he falls asleep for a few seconds until he wakes up and repeats or unless Aladdin makes noise, so Aladdin has to do a certain walk to steal the apples. So, what if you wait for the store keeper to fall asleep them making a noise to signal the player that they are asleep or having Zzz’s popping out of their head so you can do what you need to do before they wake up. This is my suggestion of how you can have this kinda character and option in the game (but the Street is a great addition and I can see so much potential and possibilities). Also, I have another question regarding of friendships, mostly with the rivals. What if with the suitor or helping your rival and befriending them gives you bonus options, like rewards for sparing and keeping your rivals alive. Like that the friendship continues forth throughout the game, like if you were to let Osana live and when Amai appears what if there are options of seeking help from Osana and advice and so on and so worth till Megami appears, that you the player have all these friends you somehow bonded with and befriended and due to what you did they got your back and are supporting you, that since they found happiness in a suitor or whatever you helped them with they’d want the same for you. I think it would be interesting and unique and would give the surviving rivals a bigger role and purpose throughout the game. Also it be great if they could teach and help the player with prepairing to be with Senpai, like for example Amai teaching to make meals to prepaire for marriage or something.

    Another thing I can’t help but think of is showing results from your actions, like if you helped Osana with her stalker you should show her distancing herself from Senpai and how he’d react, or seeing her with her boyfriend. Also I’d suggest that you have Raibaru and Osana talk about Kyuji and how she is feeling about him and is falling for him maybe conflicted with her feelings for both boys until she finally picks Kyuji seeing him as perfect or her dream man.

    Also I think there should be consequences if you were spotted by the stalker when you are in his room, that he’d never forget you (despite his obsession with Osana and stealing her cat) also if you had her hook up with Kyuji I think you should show or explain if her issue was resolved or handled by the stalker situation and how that would affected her despite being inlove and having a boyfriend. Also I would highly recommend naming her cat, it would make it allot more personal and sweeter. Also I think for sneaking into the stalkers house I think the player should have the option to wear or not wear a mask and having the others react accordingly. Also I think with the stalkers reputation and by what his sister said the player should have had the option to unlock or pick at his door, also an explanation of were his parents went when grabbing the cat and leaving. I really enjoyed the stealth and sneaking aspect of the game and it was very exciting to see and makes me wonder if that could happen at the school.

    Also with spreading gossip about Osana we should see the bullying take place and how it would affect her and how Senpai and Raibaru feel about it, and how others would react or say when she commits suicide.

    Also this might be a milestone and would be allot of work but I think Yandere-Chan when in her different personas should talk and speak like how those personas show fitting to the character she is portraying herself as.

  12. Thank you so much for all of your hard work, YandereDev! You’ve been working so hard to provide a seamless experience, and I personally have been enjoying playing the demo since it came out!

  13. I’m really enjoying the demo Yandere dev! I just finished eliminating Osana yesterday and I have never felt that accomplished in my life! Keep up the good work.

  14. Yandere Dev, I am having trouble. I can’t play the game. I tried to make a new am, and it didn’t work. it wasn’t letting me play. Even for mission mode, I tried starting a new mission, and nothing happened. It was like the game didn’t recognize I was pressing En to play.

    • restart the game and try again if you havent. and are you sure the game was actually in focus?
      sometimes windows will have a game look like it is in focus, but it wont actually send any of your keypresses to the application. i have had this happen several times with other games. never yanderesim though. (use Alt + Tab to get the game in focus if this is the issue)

      it could also be corrupted gamefiles, so if its not the “game isent actually in focus” thing then you might want to reinstall the game.
      you could also try playing with a gamepad/controller which could get around the issue.

  15. You’re probably busy but I have a suggestion about the matchmaking method. I know that Osana has a boy who is in love with her but I don’t think Osana would go out with a stranger. The method should be with Raiburo because Raiburo is always with Osana and it would be cool for her had feelings for osana

    Sorry for bad english

  16. Yandere Dev you can read this comment and important, i played the Yandere Simulator update of the day 7 September 2020 I found bugs that would be: I killed a random student then I transported his corpse and I showed Osana and Raibaru. Raibaru gave me game over. Another bug that would be: I killed a random student in front of Osana and Raibaru, Osana was paralyzed and did not move. Can you fix these Yandere Dev bugs please?

  17. Yandere Dev you can read this comment it is important, I found another bug of the Yandere Simulator game of the update of 7 September 2020 that would be: on Monday I asked Info-Chan how to kidnap Osana, I did what Info-chan said but the problem that Osana did not want to follow me at any time on Monday. Can you fix this Yandere Dev bug please?

  18. Yandere Dev you can read this comment is important, I found a bug that would be: I saw that Raibaru has no animation for changing shoes, there are no shoes in Raibaru’s locker when Osana is alive. I found another bug that would be: when I use the garbage can to insert a long weapon and then when I move the bin my reputation due to students goes down if I move the school bin with the weapon inside because it is not a cleaning product. Can you fix these Yandere Dev bugs please?

    • 1. Raibaru already changed her shoes before you arrive.
      And 2. Your reputation will be damaged because in the game, students will say: “Why are you holding that? It’s not cleaning time..”
      [Idk if I said it right, but I don’t care.]

      Again, both of the “bugs” you said are part of the game, gosh.

    • These are not bugs.
      Raibaru changes her shoes before she is waiting at the tree for Osana to finish talking to Senpai.
      Buckets, mops and bins are all cleaning supplies, if it isn’t cleaning time other students will think that it’s really weird to carry them. Since it is something that students find weird you will lose reputation points for doing it.

  19. I’ve learned that there aren’t a lot of haters, the haters that ARE there are just loud. The amount of fans are much bigger, but you know, we don’t shove it in everyones faces.

  20. Hello, I am currently playing for the fifth time to unlock the debug commands. I have unlocked the Extras menu, activated the debug commands, and then they were locked away once more. I have been doing the Befriend/Betray elimination method (the Befriend path specifically), and have completed the game four times, with many issues along the way. I am now unable to create a game in Slot A, and the tasks for Osana and Raibaru have problems appearing. Please let me know if there’s a work around.

  21. then I could play everywhere i go and also Yanderedev is the best because he/she have created a great game that I dont know how to install and that is why I want this to become a mobile game plz and thank you

  22. When i launch the game and press one of the empty/filled slots i can’t get into the game, the screen shakes a bit and doesn’t load, i deleted the game and re downloaded it and i still can’t get into the game, does anyone else have this problem?

  23. Yandere Dev you can read this comment it is important, I did some tests on this latest update of yandere simulator, I found a bug that would be: I made friends with Osana, I completed her problem with the stalker, I put Osana to sleep at home Yandere Chan, I tortured Osana, then sent him to school, the problem had its events on Friday as I finished torturing her.
    Can you fix this Yandere Dev bug please?

  24. Yandere Dev you can read this comment is important, in this latest update, you can remove the animation of Kokona preparing food after lunch time after all she is no longer yandere chan’s rival

    • Maybe he wants to leave it to keep the school feeling more lively. Osana isn’t in the cooking club so it doesn’t effect anything. No reason to change it really. Would rather him fix bugs and continue working on important things then change something unnecessary like the entire routine of Kokona. I don’t want to sound rude. I just feel that there are more important things then something like that.

      • I don’t mean to sound rude, but i think it is unnecessary to leave it in the game, for two reasons: First, yes, Osana is not in the cooking club, but neither is Kokona, she is in the drama club yet she still prepares food there for some unknown reason, she shoudn’t since she is not in the club and she is no longer a test rival, and second, it is super buggy, she slides across the ground as she walks towards the club instead of performing a proper walking animation, and also, the plate of octodogs clips through the new cake model in the table, it would be much more beneficial to just remove it completely than try to fix these bugs that are exclusive to this debug testing event… Sorry if this sounds rude, btw.

  25. I found a bug that Thursday when you on the roof, And waiting Osama to take nap. When she come, And you can still drown her to kill.

  26. Yandere dev. I think you should have the students enter the class in a different formation, so they don’t all look generic and like a triangle. I still like the idea of having the same club member entering school together but maybe in a less generic way. Also, I think there could be more complex relationships with the other students. For example, Kokona is good friends with Akane. If Akane or Kokona found the other body they would stay behind just like Sempai. This would give more complexity and another layer to the development.

  27. I apologize if i sound dumb or very slow but when you finish the demo,how do you enable/use the debugs? are they still there?

  28. The Yandere Simulator project is going perfectly. Tsudere-chan is already exposed and the process is fast and getting better. Cheer up, go ahead and pay no attention to bullying or abuse, as the saying goes: “To foolish words to deaf ears”

  29. What button should I press so the Easter eggs menu can show up? And don’t tell me I have to beat the game and blah blah blah bc I did that

  30. Hey … I understand that Osana is ready and this is difficult … But I (and not only me) would like to be able to bring Osana and RAIBARU …
