Yandere Simulator Live-Action Promo

Yandere Simulator Live-Action Promo

In 2015, a cosplay group contacted me and offered to create a short promotional video for Yandere Simulator. I wrote a script that was synchronized to a popular Japanese folk song called “Tsubasa Wo Kudasai”, and a talented artist helped me create a storyboard for the video. The original plan was to film the video […]

A bug-fixing build and a few other things

A bug-fixing build and a few other things

There was a really annoying bug in the previous build. I wanted to fix this bug and upload a new build immediately, but it would be weird to upload a new build just to fix ONE bug, so I decided to throw in a few other fixes and additions…and now it’s ready! Aside from the […]

Why is Yandere Simulator’s development taking so long?

Why is Yandere Simulator’s development taking so long?

I decided to create a video discussing the reasons why Yandere Simulator’s development is taking so long, and how to speed it up. After writing the script for this video, I realized that it was going to be so long that it would probably be a good idea to divide it into two videos. The […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I had a really big surprise planned today – it involved a collaboration with a lot of different people.

Does Yandere Simulator really need a small town?

Does Yandere Simulator really need a small town?

In 2015 and 2016, I asked fans for a lot of feedback, but rarely did I ever make videos acknowledging that feedback or announcing how it would affect the game moving forward. I was planning to make a “Tying Up Loose Ends” video, where I’d finally address many of the subjects that never received proper […]
