Rival Silhouette #7

Here is today’s rival silhouette:

I’ve got an update for you regarding my progress on the video! “Click Continue Reading” to hear it!

Yesterday, I mentioned that I’ve been “withholding information” from you. The time has come to tell you what I was withholding, and why.

The truth is that I have not been working on a video…

…I have been working on three videos.

I anticipated that, after releasing the new 10 Rivals Mode, a lot of people would say, “Why did you add this to the game? What is the point of this? Why add 10 new rivals to the game? Why did you spend time working on this instead of working on the 10 main rivals?” So, I decided that I’d need to pre-emptively answer these questions before announcing and releasing 10 Rivals Mode, in order to ensure a better reception for 10 Rivals Mode.

To that end, I’ve created a 3:45 video where I talk about the current state of the game’s development, the obstacles that prevent me from being able to make further progress on the 10 main rivals at this point in time, and why the next logical step for the game’s development is to create a new gameplay mode about eliminating 10 new rivals over 10 weeks. Hopefully, this video will make my intentions and objectives as clear as possible, so that nobody will be saying “What is this?? Why did he make this?? What about the 10 other rivals??” when they see 10 Rivals Mode.

I will release that video on October 9th, and leave it up for 24 hours to give people time to see it. Then, on 10/10 at 10:10 AM, I will upload a second video to officially reveal 10 Rivals Mode, and simultaneously release the new build. This second video is 3:30 minutes long, 1080p, does not involve any voiceover narration from me, and is meant to show off the most interesting and hype-generating aspects of the 10 Rivals Update. This video has much higher “production values” than a normal YandereDev video, and is the result of receiving a great deal of assistance from multiple professionals – but I can’t tell you the specifics without spoiling it. It will be one of the most “fancy” videos I’ve ever uploaded to my channel, and I really hope that people are going to love it!

Then, on October 11th, I will upload a 31-minute long video where I showcase every change and addition that was made to the game for 10 Rivals Mode. (Yes, there is so much new content in the latest build that it will take me over half an hour just to list it all!)

So, you’re going to get a trilogy of videos; one video per day for 3 days straight.

The reason why I feel comfortable attaching specific dates to these videos is because all three videos are now complete. The only part of the process remaining is to add music and “proof-watch” all 3 videos to make sure there aren’t any errors, and make any final edits that I feel are necessary.

You might be wondering why I would work on 3 videos in secret while claiming to only be working on one video. The reason is because I anticipated that, if I said, “I’m going to make 3 videos,” a lot of people would say, “No! That will take too long! I don’t want to wait for you to make 3 videos! It sounds unnecessary! Forget about doing that and just release the update!” and I didn’t want to have to deal with all that crap. So, I decided to simply withhold the information from you until after the videos were already complete, when there would be nothing for you to complain about.

In summary? The videos are done, the release dates are set in stone, and you won’t have to wait much longer for them!

Of course, that isn’t the only secret I’ve been keeping from you. For example, I’ve been calling it “10 Rivals Mode”, but that’s actually pretty misleading, because, in reality, there are actually –

…oops! Almost let it slip. Haha! You won’t get the information out of me that easily!

Anyway, I’ll probably dump all remaining rival silhouettes periodically between now and noon of October 9th, because as soon as I’ve uploaded the 3:45 video, daily previews/teasers will no longer be necessary.

I hope you’re going to look forward to everything I’ve been working on!!

P.S. – Completely unrelated to the 10 Rivals Update, I’m planning something special for tomorrow! I hope you’ll drop by!

  1. “This world is full of people…”
    – who like cats?
    – who don’t exist?
    – with big 80085?
    – turned into pickles?

  2. OMG I’m so excited, about the silhouette it reminds me of the sailor venus character from the sailor moon series but maybe nothing to see

  3. If everything is done I don’t see why not drop all three videos and build now. But I can also see from creator side wanting a project to have a cool release date which 10\10 10a.m is pretty memorable but if it was ME I’d release the update early and let one video out a day. Reason being in a weeks time nobody will be able to find every new thing by the time the videos’ come out. Or I’d release all three same day with build. Or a day earlier than the build to increase likeliness of people watching the videos. Personally I’d do all three tomorrow and build later that day or next. But if he does’t chance his mind its 10-10-10am

    • That doesn’t seem like a great idea. He’s actually doing it right. Taking your time and checking things over, no matter the pressure, is the sign of a great developer.

      Take Smash Bros for example. People we’re downright toxic to them for years for not including Sora, but now he’s here and he’s amazing. I couldn’t think of a better final character to be added to the roster.

      Can you imagine what would have happened if it had been a rushed job? He wouldn’t be as polished, have the insane amount of move sets, or costumes he has.

      Or what about Cyberpunk? People there put out videos and advertising WAY ahead of time and didn’t listen to the developers. It killed the hype when it didn’t live up because it was rushed and had all these bugs. Which the developers told them would happen. But the people wanted it then and there.

      So I am open to him waiting and polishing things up. It’s not the first time a game has taken this long and it won’t be the last. We should just be patient and support someone who’s working hard to make something for us for free.

      Not mad or anything, but it’s better he waits. Plus you get to say you bought a game on 10/10 at 10:10AM. Who else gets to say that? No one. πŸ˜‚ This is going to be fun.

  4. Guys, if you watch closely, when you preview the silhouette’s png name, there’s words. So far it’s “Cute, this world is full of people _ _ _” One word each for a rival’s png

  5. How’s he gonna schedule this for 10:10? YouTube’s scheduling system forces you to pick from a drop down list of times, and 10 after isn’t an option.

      • Yeah that’s what I automatically thought you meant πŸ˜‚ I didn’t think for the merest fraction of a second That you were going to do a premier

  6. Umm, you’re like the woman I watched who was upset for getting a free ice cream at McDonald’s.

    The game is free, so I am confused about why this should be so upsetting?

    It’s more like when my parents pulled me out of school early, everyone was smiling and my parents told me we were going to McDonald’s, but we were actually going to Disney World.

    It’s a surprise. A good one. So let’s be happy okay? I think this update is going to be amazing! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ»βœ¨

      • ?? It’s strange to call someone dramatic when that’s not true. You came here with the express intent to argue with people or
        to say something negative. Which is obvious by your comment thread.

        Sorry if this comes off as abrasive, but it’s not a healthy thing to do. Are you doing okay? Is lockdown hard on you? Maybe you should take a social media/YanSim break if so. Because YOU matter and YOU are important.

        I won’t respond further, in case you’re just trolling around, but I genuinely hope you have a wonderful day/night wherever you are and stay safe!

      • It’s fine. I figured that was the case. Well I hope it gets better for you. Sending virtual hugs! πŸ€—πŸ€—

  7. I can’t begin to express how excited I am about the game reaching this point!!! I have been following it since early 2015 and it’s mind-blowing how far the game has come! I’m really happy to see it be really close to completion, keep the good work Yandere Dev!!!
