Nemesis Manga Sequel Released!

Hello! I have something to announce that I’m very excited about!

On August 1, 2019, I released “Retribution”, a short manga that revealed the origins and motivations of “Nemesis”, the mysterious girl who hunts and kills Ayano in Mission Mode. For years, I’ve wanted to continue the manga with a sequel…but it had to wait until I found the right artist to work with.

Last month, an artist with a phenomenal talent for drawing manga contacted me and volunteered to create artwork for Yandere Simulator. After seeing her incredible artwork, I told her about the Nemesis sequel that I’ve always wanted to release…and she agreed to draw it! (In case you’re curious who it is, the artist has asked to be credited as “JIBJAB“, and has shared a few of her fan-made illustrations on Reddit.)

Over the past month, she’s been drawing it in her spare time, and as of today…it’s finally ready to be released! I am very proud to release Chapter 2 of Retribution!

Chapter 1 was 7 pages long, but chapter 2 is over 3 times as long, coming in at a whopping 24 pages! I really hope that you’re going to enjoy reading it!

(It’s formatted in the style of a traditional Japanese manga, so remember to read the panels from right to left!)

Foreign fans of the game are welcome to translate chapter 2 and e-mail me a link to a zip file containing all of the translated pages!

And to make it easier for you, here’s a link to Chapter 2 without any words in the speech bubbles:


“But YandereDev, YandereDev! What about the game? When’s the next build?”

I’ve got a massive update with lots of changes that is almost ready to be uploaded, but I need a few more days to put the finishing touches on it. I hope you’ll look forward to it!

March 13th Bug-Fixing Build

Hello! There were some bugs in the water cooler update, but I’ve prepared an update that fixes those bugs, and also improves the way that the feature works. You’re going to be interested in this build’s changelog!

To see a list of everything that was fixed, added, or changed in the latest build, scroll down past this screenshot of an entire classroom being electrocuted to death:

Yes, someone actually pulled it off! And he recorded a video of it, too. Exactly what I hoped to see when I released yesterday’s build!

Two New Features!

Edit: Oops! There was a critical bug in the build that I uploaded this morning; the character would freeze upon dipping a mop into a bucket. I’ve uploaded a new build with the problem fixed. Sorry about that!

Hello! Two new features have been added to Yandere Simulator for the purpose of replacing some gameplay mechanics that simply weren’t any fun at all. Hopefully, you’re going to have a much easier time with certain elimination methods now that these new mechanics have been added.

So, what exactly was added? Well…

It’s complicated, but click Continue Reading to read a looooong blog post that explains everything!

March 1st Bug-Fixing Build

Hello! I’ve prepared a new update containing around 40 differences from the previous build.

The number of bug reports I’ve been receiving has drastically declined, which means that I can finally start to focus more of my time on adding new content instead of fixing bugs and removing exploits. With 99% certainty, I can say that March is the month that we return to “Hey guys, check out this new feature!” builds, instead of “Hey guys, I fixed 40 bugs…” builds.

To see a list of everything that changed in the latest build, scroll down past this beautiful artwork of Ryoba and Sonoko by x_anp!

This art appears to be the “cover page” of a short manga that x_anp drew! It’s only 5 pages long, but the artwork is gorgeous! I really hope that someone translates it into English!

Actually, x_anp has been drawing tons of stunning illustrations lately! From cute ones like this to highly detailed ones like this! Please go check out x_anp’s Twitter, because everything they draw is absolutely amazing!
