Yandere Simulator Merchandise!

Yandere Simulator Merchandise!

Back in June, I showed off some Yandere Simulator t-shirts that I wore to Anime Expo.

I made a poll asking whether or not fans would disapprove if I started selling […]

Further Thoughts Regarding LoveSick Mode (and a new build)

Further Thoughts Regarding LoveSick Mode (and a new build)

Yesterday, I proposed an idea for Yandere Sim: allowing the player to choose the game’s presentation. You can experience the game as a “cute dating sim gone wrong” with an atmosphere that is dependent on the player’s actions, or as a straight-up horror game with a dark and serious atmosphere. I proposed this concept because […]
