New blog post, with lots of progress and a playable download: https://yanderedev.wordpress.com/2014/12/14/student-schedules-behavior-near-senpai-and-passing-time
Do you think this game makes Yandere Sim irrelevant? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jcErXGBZnM
If Hatred was banned from Steam, do you think Yandere Sim won't be allowed on Steam either? http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/12/controversial-shooter-hatred-taken-down-from-steam-greenlight/
Yandere Sim has arguably worse content than Hatred, like chopping off girls' limbs and driving girls to suicide. Do you think Yandere Sim will receive as much backlash as Hatred has been getting?
Here we are! I was about to post on your blog to try and see if you forgot or something, but I guess that you were getting shit ready.
I've already been messing around with the playable map. I've found the uniform, but not the breast thing.
No, that game doesn't make Yandere Sim irrelevant. Not at all. I don't think it will get backlash either, since it isn't as high-profile as Hatred.
Oh shit, I never expected anything to come out of this.
This was the original, I'll post the parody next.
One question. Will there be torture involved and h-scenes down the pipe? This could be really good shit depending on how it all meshes together. I'm sure many people on /v/, including me would pay for something like that.
Everything is running perfectly on this end. Where is the second easter egg?
No plans for torture or anything more pornographic than panty shots. I'd like to give the player a method for capturing girls and keeping them imprisoned in your basement at home, and you can pretend that torture and rape goes on in there.
Big boss, haha...
Here's a hint: The second easter egg can't be found if you're playing the game with a controller, and only works on keyboard.
Hi yanderedev! I'm sad that you're not gonna use the cutscenes anymore. I found them pretty funny. I don't think this game will be irrelevant because of natsuiro, nor will it receive backlash like hatred
until after release
keep being cool
I *might* use 3D cut-scenes, but first I'd need to have a script that wouldn't draw as much criticism as the previous one. It certainly wasn't my best work, and I'm really not proud of it now that I'm looking back on it. The cut-scene subject is something I'll revisit after the playable demo is out.
It should definitely be in, at the very least as a cheat code / easter egg, and perhaps as a choosable hairstyle, if I decide to make the protagonist customizable.
You're a girl, you're in love with a boy (or a girl), and you love them so much that you must eliminate anyone else who flirts with your crush.
You can get rid of your love-rivals by killing them, or using non-lethal methods instead. It plays like a stealth game. Imagine Hitman Absolution with school sim aspects, and you've got the general idea.
Whoa, never mind. Just found it.
Right now. Go to the blog right now. There's even a playable demo.
Sup. Nah, I don't think that game makes yours irrelevant. They both seem to share only small elements, and while both games appeal to a similar crowd, playing one wouldn't really give you the experience of the other.
I've got the feeling Yandere Sim would be split in half in regards to greenlighting. After all, it has a much softer and less edgy look to it. I'm sure plenty of people would strongly complain against the whole premise of the game though. Compared to Hatred, which actively seeks out a shock factor, you won't get nearly as much backlash. Some coverage, probably, but nothing outrageous.
Tried out the demo, looks neat, though it runs in the low teens framerate on my laptop. Not that big of a surprise honestly. Keep up the good work, always looking forward to your updates.
I feel like this is probably one of the least politically-correct games that I could possibly make (it's about slaughtering schoolchildren) so I have a feeling SJWs will rip it apart.
The reason you can have a lesbian romance isn't because I'm trying to be progressive, it's for the homophobes who don't want to play a game about stalking a boy. When the SJWs find out I'm intentionally catering to homophobes and not trying to appease homosexuals, they will probably shit on the game to no end.
>Being near Senpai causes Yandere-chan’s kokoro to go doki-doki.
Made me giggle.
I can see where you're coming from with the Hatred thing, but as long as you don't put out any trailer that involves Yandere-chan dismembering Childhood Friend-tan and jamming her into the incenerator, then it shouldn't drum up too much controversy, probably GTA or Hitman-tier and that's about it.
The environment looks pretty good so far, I'm enjoying the way the student AI and Senpai behavior is looking, and lore always gets me invested. I'll admit, wasn't a fan of the last update's cutscene, but I don't think that necessarily means the story should be rethought, and while cutscenes do take a shitload of work, you can always save that as the gloss after finishing core gameplay; still images aren't a bad idea if done correctly, Ken's Rage 2 for example had that "manga feel" in its still image scenes, and then it animated the models in certain still panels and shit got intense.
Please tell me you can keep the dismembered body parts in Yandere-chan's house, holy shit, the possibilities on framing students for murderers would be endless.
So far I'm having a blast. It's amazing how much you can do with just one map demo.
Don't worry about it, yanderedev.
Hatred was trying to be edgy and got infamous because of various reasons.
Postal is still on Steam and your game's an anime so I don't think anyone will bat an eye.
>Do you think this game makes Yandere Sim irrelevant? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jcErXGBZnM
>If Hatred was banned from Steam, do you think Yandere Sim won't be allowed on Steam either? http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/12/controversial-shooter-hatred-taken-down-from-steam-greenlight/
Don't ask stupid questions. The first isn't even about murder and Hatred got taken down because of bad publicity.
>If Hatred was banned from Steam, do you think Yandere Sim won't be allowed on Steam either?
I'm sure you could just pass it off as a japanese interactive VN story type game or something.
I wouldn't describe it as "insecure about my sexuality". I stalked male Senpai for a while and then decided it felt boring to stalk a dude, but I would be more interested if I was stalking a female character.
If you don't want to hold hands with a dude, does it mean you're "insecure in your sexuality" and a homophobe? No, it just means you prefer holding hands with girls and have no interest in holding hands with dudes. No "insecurity" there, just a preference you were born with and can't change.
See? The SJWs are going to HATE me.
>Do you think this game makes Yandere Sim irrelevant?
No one would know about this if you didn't post it lol.
>If Hatred was banned from Steam, do you think Yandere Sim won't be allowed on Steam either?
No your game probably won't get attention, unless it has nudity or something like that.
For example the Shadow Warrior remake is also violent (cutting limbs etc.) but no one heard about it and no one bitched about it.
It's cool to see someone get this far in development and stick to it, keep it up.
If you start to get negative publicity for whatever reason, I would just ignore it, they can't do shit to you.
>See? The SJWs are going to HATE me.
If you keep fucking talking about it like it's an issue, then sure.
You shouldn't be so obsessed with your reception when you're so early in development.
Hypothetically, if I get a lot of publicity and attend E3 as an indie dev and rub elbows with Sony execs and discuss the prospect of releasing the game on PS4 and get a PS4 dev kit...
I guess it wouldn't be too far behind the PC version. One of Unity's greatest strengths is the ability to export to any platform with almost no changes to code. In a best-case scenario, I'd just have to throw in some code to trigger some Trophy pop-ups instead of Steam Achievement pop-ups.
No! I strongly object to the idea of adding the option to play as a male main character. This feels non-negotiable to me. If it's yandere, it's gotta be a girl!
Sure, there are some examples of male yanderes, but female yanderes are far superior. That's where it's at!
The only "invisible" wall will be when you're trying to exit the open schoolgate (which will automatically close at a certain time in the day, and reopen later in the day.) Yandere-chan will say something like "No, I don't want to leave school, Senpai is here!" or something along those lines, to justify why she wouldn't take another step.
Someone posted a .gif of Yandere-chan dragging a dead body on the /r/gaming subreddit, and it was the top-upvoted post that day, so I think it'll be able to get attention...
the defining factor for whether this game will be accepted publicly will be the story.
if its justified in the story you can kill just about anything or anyone.
>see every game ever.
>ostensibly new poster shitposts
>unique poster count does not increase
I think partway through the game you should introduce the element of a yandere guy falling in love with Yandere-chan. It would add an extra challenge of yandering Senpai while not getting yandered yourself.
I've always been nervous that I'm technically crossing a line just by making these threads. But since I'm making the game FOR /v/ and specifically asking /v/ to tell me what they want me to put in the game, is it really advertising?
I can't really see it as advertising, I think of it as "Here it is so far, what else do you want?"
Why not a mode where you're the object of everyones affection as a male but one of the girls is yandere and you try to figure out which one to call the cops on without dying whilst also finding a true waifu. You pick the yandere you lose. As time passes more "good" girls die making it easier to guess but you have less waifu's to pick from.
What, you didn't take Sky 101 in high school?
Are you running this on a toaster or something?
You're not advertising. You're not asking for money. It is OK.
>You never said no to robo!
are you asking to play as a yandere robot?
that'd be fucking
Nice work OP. Love seeing a game grow. Also good to know you're in this for the long haul, unlike most games like this that fizzle out a few months in.
I know its probably the last thing you'd be thinking about, but where would you stand on price points / different versions of the game for different prices?
Downloading demo now, will report back.
as long as you dont end up a fat norwegian kike selling out to microsoft, you're alright
What's this about robots? I don't remember the specific post / request. I'm willing to put chainsaw-hands in the game as a cheat code, so I'm probably willing to add robots as a cheat code in some fashion.
I pitched a bunch of game ideas to /v/ and all of them were shot down, but Yandere Sim was the only one that people liked, which is why I chose to work on Yandere Sim instead of any of the other ideas. So pleasing /v/ is literally my only agenda.
This is a full retail release that I have poured my heart and soul into. Anything less than $60 would just be insulting. As for different versions, I am planning a special edition for $120 that will include a pair of panties from a real live yandere.
Have you thought about putting this on kickstarter?
I would be happy to support you, there are probably a few other anons that would consider donating a few bucks for your game.
>I pitched a bunch of game ideas to /v/ and all of them were shot down, but Yandere Sim was the only one that people liked
And I liked it too, before you went and changed the whole idea to some weird fanservice shit.
So I remember a webm that showed Yandere-chan changing into a Gi and then back to the school outfit, will there be more outfits like that in the game, like kendo club outfits or school swimsuits? Will the outfits be restrained to the uniforms and school outfits, or could we see some easter egg outfits as a possibility, like
an Agent 47 suit or Shadow Moses Sneaking Suit?
Yeah, man, definitely fucking hype for this. Don't worry about any criticism, the most important part is that you make the game how you envision it. Don't let anybody else tell you to do something different if you yourself think it's right.
sci-fi space academy dlc with yandere robots would be great
please satisfy this fetish for me. there are no lewd robot games out there
PLEASE! MAKE IT A CHEAT, UNLOCKABLE, OR SOME STUPID "PASS THE GAME A BILLION TIMES WITHOUT HAVING FUN" CHALLENGE I WANNA BE A YANDERE ROBOT!
It all depends on the quality of the end product and how much money was sunk into it.
There are currently some very cool people volunteering to help with the game for free, but I don't know if they will still be available to help me in the future - they might get busy with a new job, or school work, or a different game project, etc. Although I'm getting some free help right now, it's possible that in the future I may need to pay artists and modellers to make the assets I need. There are also a lot of assets that NOBODY is volunteering to make, such as the hundreds of 3D animations that this game will need.
If I can get everything I need to finish the game absolutely for free, then I couldn't justify charging a lot of money for the game. The price would be around $5, just so I could get something in return for the hundreds of hours I spent working on it.
If I never get the assets that I need, and the "finished" game is a bare-bones minimalist piece of crap with shitty production values and tons of missing assets, I wouldn't dare charge a cent for it; it would be free (and nobody would want it anyway).
If I make a crowd-funding campaign, the game is successfully funded, and I get enough money to pay artists to make production-quality assets for the game, then I could stop being a freelance programmer and focus 100% on developing the game. I'd probably charge something like $10 for the game, just to make up for what I could have been making if I'd kept my day job.
If the crowd-funding campaign fails and I decided to fund the game by dipping into my own personal savings, I'd have to charge $15 ~ $20 for the game in order to make back the money that I personally lost.
TLDR: I want to give the game as low of a price as possible, just enough to make back any money I lost while working on it, or make up for the money I would have made if I had been working a full-time job instead of developing this game.
You should probably distance yourself from /v/ once this gets into the final stretch. Figure out exactly what you want now and go full steam ahead.
Subject matter is probably touchy enough without the inevitable HORROR of a dev who uses 4chan.
C...can you add the ability to unlock monster girl skins? With monster girl powers?
The powers are unlocked through beating harder modes or harder levels.
But they allow different types of gameplay.
like a goo girl melting under a door or hiding in a puddle and killing people untraceably by digesting them
I'm almost entirely self-taught. I started with Game Maker, and made simple 2D game prototypes and replicas of famous games (Pong, Tetris, Mario). Then I started downloading Unity projects, opening up the source files, and poking around to change a character's jump height, etc. Then I started making my own Unity projects from scratch and just using web resources to code whatever features I needed, and eventually I got to this stage.
Holy shit, is that game in the OP just a dating sim or is it a fully fleshed out version of the P3/4 social link stuff? If its the latter then this is literally the game I've been waiting for. My hype is through the roof. Will fucking buy day 1.
>Sometimes the NPC’s pathfinding breaks, and she just walks in circles.
They're literally as stupid as ants.
Literally the worst advice you can give someone.
One just needs to not be a retard and know what legitimate criticism is, and what is faggots spewing shit like a pack of retards.
Just ignoring all criticism is how you end up with faggots like Notch.
There will be joke endings, right?
>A game made by one guy is getting more progress than a game made by a bunch of /v/irgins
I appreciate your support, and I really hope I don't let you down.
I'd like to personally commit to including all of these panties into the game for starters, along with a bunch of recolors of them for variety, and novelty joke panties, such as a censor mosaic.
I thought you ran off to impchan when moot banned that cancerous chanology 2.0 movement. Why should I give a shit about you now?
OP, I believe you stated in the past you have all the previous threads saved, correct?
Can I see them?
Also, check this webm out if you haven't already.
Swapping costumes is really trivial to implement, it all depends on whether or not I can get some to model and rig them for me. The character pack I'm using comes with multiple types of uniforms, casual clothing, and a school swimsuit, but anything beyond that would have to be custom-modeled just for the game by a generous volunteer modeller, or paid for by Kickstarter donations.
I DEFINITELY want to include silly costumes that reference other games.
Assuming the censor mosaic is really rare, does that mean our business partner wanting the panty shots would comment on it for not technically being panties? That'd be pretty funny.
Hey OP, are you looking for another developer?
I'd be willing to help you out. I seen you were excited about what I assume is your A* trail implementation. I can help with some of that along with optimizations and physics. Let me know if you're intested.
After completing the game, I'd love to use all art assets and animations that were produced for it to make a dating sim. Sort of like, what Senpai's life would have been like if it wasn't for one yandere girl killing all of the other girls in the dating sim. If it sells enough, I could afford to reskin the whole thing with robots at a space academy.
Anon, I know you can do it.
Anon check out some beautiful panties and improve them.
There is still time left and you can still change it later, but I hope you understand panties are an important, no the most importan part of a game like this.
Dude, fuck the public, they just got into NTR recently, they'll never be ready for yanderes, so fuck them. You're doing gods work anon tell me if you need any help.
>The second easter egg can't be found if you're playing the game with a controller, and only works on keyboard
I dont understand
I'd like to get that done as soon as I can (I was aiming for Jan 1st but that doesn't seem likely anymore).
I'm planning to release a playable demo featuring a full "school week", complete with a target to kill and many different ways to kill her (and all the other students of the school) sometime within the next 4 months.
April 2nd at the absolute latest. Can't be April 1st though, people would think it's a prank.
Maybe you have to type something.
Cowgirl as in this.
I'm really afraid of that happening, actually.
I'm visiting my family for the holidays for the rest of December, and I will be getting a room-mate starting in January, so my progress may be slow while I spend time with my folks and acclimate to having a room-mate.
Over the next 2 months, I will definitely appear to be making less progress than normal because of the holidays and new room-mate. I really hope that the donators don't get pissed at me, and think that I got lazy as soon as I started getting money.
I should be returning to my normal pace of work in mid February when the room-mate moves out.
It's almost like he's asking for feedback rather than for /v/ to make every decision about his game.
why does the phone menu have such a realistic looking hand? seems a little out of place
i assume its just a placeholder but i kekd pretty good seeing that
Yanderedev will you be adding new game modes after the main story mode.
Something like Yandere-chan kidnapped Senpai and locked him up in her house and the objective is to keep Senpai live and not let him escape the house. A mix of breeding and house (security) management
That's a good point. She should have a custom response to seeing that.
I prefer to be the sole programmer on a project, because in my past experience, working on a game gets exponentially more complicated the more programmers are added. I know there are solutions, like source-control for the code and blackboxing code, but I still prefer to do things solo.
I appreciate the offer, though! You're welcome to send me an e-mail at [email protected] so I have your contact info in case I ever want to ask you for help.
Shitty idea guy here. Would an in game twitter/instagram be a cool idea? Like, you can use it to gage how students are reacting to the events unfolding around them. idk, sort of like 2K or Akiba's Trip.
>If Hatred was banned from Steam, do you think Yandere Sim won't be allowed on Steam either? http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/12/controversial-shooter-hatred-taken-down-from-steam-greenlight/
You're not an edge meister making a game solely to piss off soccer moms, so no.
Is it weird if I find driving someone insane slowly by slowly more erotic than just knifing them?
Looks cool OP, yanderes are best.
I don't have any money to support you because I'm a shut-in turbofag, but you get this pic.
All depends on whether or not a character modeller volunteers to model and rig a variety of costumes for me. A lot of the time, the only answer I can give is "I'd love to implement this, but I need a volunteer or money to pay someone with."
I'm not Aea, but I do know him. He's drawn a few character design concepts, and I really appreciate his contributions!
the pathing was crcking me up
more importantly, why is the hand coming from offscreen? who stalks the stalker?
I remember a bit where you used the phone to take pictures and it was all first person. The pause screen should be like that.
>come back to 7 replies to post
>it was that alien fag
Are panties the only clothing you'll be able to change?
No shorts or casual wear?
Please add spats in the next public demo
>you will never be this butthurt about a video game
Whoops, I didn't even respond to the second thing you said.
I think that non-lethal runs may be easier than lethal runs. Some of the planned ways to non-lethally dispose of a girl are...
1. Frame her for one of your crimes, get her arrested.
2. Frame her for breaking school rules, get her expelled.
3. Convince the rest of the girls to bully her until she stays home from school, and/or commits suicide.
4. Find out who else in the school she has a crush on, and set her up with that boy instead.
5. Knock her out, kidnap her and keep her prisoner in your home.
6. Trick Senpai into hating her.
Most of this involves talking to students to spread rumors, planting evidence, stealing things, taking pictures at the most opportune time, etc. Less "tools", more theft and trespassing and spying and stalking and social sabotage.
Meh. Giving up asking questions.
If only it was possible for me to make games.
Bribe local thugs to rape girl, mind break her, film it, say you'll release it if they go after your lover.
Ta-da, non-lethal idea right there.
>not being irrationally butthurt makes you an indie dev dicksucker
So whatever happened to this outfit Yanderedev? Didn't you say something about making it closer looking to pic related?
It's a shame that you're ditching cutscenes. I really thought they were hilarious, but I understand if they take too much work to implement. Are you at least going to keep the ones you have as the game's set up, or are you just going to remove everything altogether?
So three things:
1. The hand looks way too real on the phone menu.
2. I love how she becomes embarrassed around senpai, that's fucking adorable.
3. I liked having her face in the corner of the screen to indicate her emotion. That should definitely be in the final game, at least in parts where you have to worry about looking too "yandere."
This game looks so fun and I will definitely buy it when it's finished.
>Game mode where Yandere-chan kidnapped Senpai and locked him up in her house and the objective is to keep Senpai live and not let him escape the house.
>The game is over if Senpai dies or if he manage to escape Yandere-chan's house
>To keep Senpai alive Yandere-chan (aka the player aka you) must feed him food and water, tend to his health if he's sick or injured. Senpai's mental health is also a factor, if he falls into despair and he lost his will to live, he will commit suicide
>Senpai from time to time will try and escape when you're not noticing or not at homr. You can make his escape harder by upgrading your house's security for example reinforce the doors or add bars to the windows. You can "dissuade" senpai from escaping by showering him with love or punish him for trying to escape (will affect his mental and physical health)
>Everything (food, medicine, house upgrades, tools) cost money (earn by doing side job minigame from Info-chan or working part time somewhere else) and your need to allocate the time properly eg sleep, school, 'taking care of senpai'
>Multiple ending (including the game overs) can include 'convincing' Senpai to love you (best possible ending), turn Senpai into vegetable/brain dead and you are loving an empty shell of himself, murder him then later commit suicide or get him to become yandere for you etc etc etc
I have a feeling it wouldn't look pretty, although I could give it a try.
Only the programmer.
Definitely a placeholder.
Perhaps a mode where there is a random Yandere girl at school and she's trying to kill you and you have to figure out who it is, or a mode where a random girl loves Senpai and you don't know who so you have to stalk Senpai and stalk the girls who talk to him to figure out who it is.
Stuff like that, stuff that can take place with all the existing code without changing too much.
That's kind of a cool idea, although I'd like it to be really self-evident how students feel. I'd like their animations change to look more fearful / paranoid, their dialogue to change to start gossiping about the recent deaths, and I'd even like the general look / atmosphere of the school to change.
hey op you were talking about restructuring some parts of the story in the blog
are there any specific things that you have changed or plan to change that you can say or are you still brainstorming about it?
I really, really want to work on a simple two-week side project for fun, but I don't want to upset people who want progress on the game / upset the people contributing to the Patreon.
>you can have a choice of letting Senpai free to roam around the house or tie him up/lock him up in a room
>former will put less mental stress on senpai but he will attempt to make his escape easily
>latter will stop him from escaping but his mental health will suffer alot
Then do it. Make it holiday related. Now's the perfect time to do it because you have an excuse.
I want to see what you can come up with, YDev.
Still undecided, probably undecided until after the game is funded, since there's no point in deciding her personality if it's not even guaranteed that the game will make it that far.
Shit, I was hoping that bug was fixed in the build I uploaded...
No, I just haven't heard from Aea in a while. I have a lot of requests for him, but I'm afraid of sounding bossy / demanding, so I usually don't ask him for anything...
What's an example of something really lewd? She's expecting panty shots from you every time she checks her phone, but how does it get much lewder than that at a highschool?
I still definitely intend to include it, just haven't worked on it lately.
Why not make a quick christmas demo of yandere stalking sempai to make sure he's free on christmas to invite.
You know making his family occupied, lying to his childhood friend, take out another girl who wants to confess.
It could all happen the day before christmas, and use very dumb down mechanics from your actual game to give a taste.
I post go into these threads often cause I want to experience it with knowing as little possible when it's done, but keep up the great work, it's crazy to still see it still going on so strong.
There should be an achievement for doing a 'Matchmaker' Run and just setting everyone up with each other and then getting your Senpai at the end.
If you can do something like this and make an unlockable cupid outfit for doing this it'll be a day 1 buy for me.
I haven't decided on it yet. I'll probably hold off on this decision for as long as I can while I consider my options.
Right now I'm just planning on them walking around school, following pre-determined schedules, and performing animations like talking to each other / eating food / gazing out the window, etc.
Sort of like guards in stealth games, except with the appearance of high school students.
Either I'll replace absolutely everything with one one-minute-long cut-scene made of still images that sets the stage and then throws you into gameplay, or I'll keep everything but change the way that Info-chan is portrayed.
Here's a look at the new potential script:
Running Linux Mint here and the game works just fine in WINE. I understand there might be a "werks on my machine" aspect to this, but it might be something to advertise if you so choose. As for performance, it ran around 25 FPS at the best, and loading the multiple sakura trees temporarily makes it more like 5. However, please keep in mind that this computer is at LEAST nearly 5 years old, but I think it is closer to 8 (it was a prebuilt too; the only addition I have done to it is add more RAM). I noticed that she and the rest of the world goes all pink around her sempai. I found that really cute. Also, was that your fucking hand at the edge of the screen?
Something like Yandere Clicker 2 (google "Yandere Clicker" if you haven't seen the original) or a top-down shooter starring a succubus or something goofy like that.
Not that anon, but are you going to make the ends of the swimsuit/uniform thing 'higher' like in his pic for maximum skin? I need to know this for scientific research purposes
I don't know yet. I can definitely load in textures and mp3s from a specific folder, but anything beyond that, I'm not sure if I can support.
when you say still images do you mean that theyll be like the cutscenes in fire emblem?
that could work
you could also do them the way that Valkyria Chronicles does, if you dont want to totally drop animated cutscenes
She's always a psychopath who is completely obsessed with Senpai, although whether or not she's able to hide it and act like a normal person is dependent on how many people she has killed recently.
Because this game is still going on and making progress, you will be the first and only person I ever give money to on Patron YandereDev.
OK, this fixes all the problems that people complained about in terms of exposition. I think the originals were fine, but whatever the masses cry out for.
It's completely okay to have Yandere-Chan express murderous intent towards Osana Najimi. That's a Yandere thing to do.
Alltogether looks good. I dunno how hard/easy it would be to redo the cutscene, but I have no doubts that one day I'll play through this.
This is exactly why I never show my games on the internet before they're nearly done. It's fun to post updates and get feedback and stuff, but the pressure and lack of freedom are suffocating.
I'd definitely like to award an achievement to anyone who does that. I hadn't considered a cupid outfit yet though, that's a good idea!
>Unlock Cupid Outfit - matchmake all the filthy whores with other men
>Unlock Agent 47 outfit - kill all filthy whores without getting detected
>Unlock unremovable blood stained uniform - kill all filthy whores and eye witnesses
>Unlock Kuro Neko/Black cat outfit - have all filthy whores dead in an accident
>Do you think this game makes Yandere Sim irrelevant? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jcErXGBZnM
Nah, it would be like comparing Modern Warfare with Spec Ops the Line.
>do you think Yandere Sim won't be allowed on Steam either?
No clue, man. wait and see how hatred's deal goes.
>Do you think Yandere Sim will receive as much backlash as Hatred has been getting?
Serial killers news stopped being relevant a couple of decades before school shootings went to the headlines.
>Opening Pandora's Moe Box
I beg you. Please don't
That would be my goal, yes.
No, I mean "still image" as in putting up a full-screen illustration and some text.
I think I asked them once and they just told me to gtfo or lurk moar or cuck or something.
/v/, you're doing it again.
You're fucking doing it again.
You're putting your blind faith and money into something that will be completely different when it's released.
>Mighty No. 9
>Countless other Kickstarter projects
Just stop, I can't stand seeing you get hurt anymore.
/a/ here. As someone who has Yuno as a waifu I'd recommend against this. Thread would probably get deleted anyways since it's not specifically 'anime' related.
Well I guess I can't ask for much, but I would love this things in your game:
- Twintails hair style
- Some not "hipster type" cute glasses
- Bags with cute mini pets
- Walking sounds (shoes, cloth, bag?)
Everything else is almost perfect.
A black cat outfit that you unlock where people die around you without you doing any actual killing yourself and doing 'accidental' kills would be great.
On this subject you should do environmental and trap kills, too. Like sneaking into a workshop allows you to steal materials for setting up traps. Then you can methodically stalk students, find out their routine, then set up traps that look like accidents.
Listening to Memories of the School on my Purse Owner play list, go play the demo and turn music on. P3 is my favorite game dude.I fucking love you , keep up the good work.
I don't remember and it's not in the metadata, so don't ask me.
You know, why don't you just google "Miyuki Sone (the name in the webm) yandere" I'd bet that'd give you something
How many different rival girls are there?
Is there a way to filter a post automatically if a certain number of other posts are quoted in it?
Atleast I didn't have to type anything
Oh duh, I didn't even notice the name. I even had it fucking bookmarked...
Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi.
Go ahead and delude yourself all you want that the female model is actually a dude.
You trap people are good at the whole delusion thing, I don't imagine it'd be very difficulty for you.
I tested the ability to do this using a mirror and it worked.
It'll probably just result in a funny quip from Info-chan and an achievement popup.
The plan is to include about 10.
1. Senpai's Childhood Friend
2. President of the Cooking Club
3. President of the Drama Club
4. President of the Occult Club
5. Captain of the Swim Team
6. Lusty, Busty School Nurse
7. Lecherous, Perverted Teacher
8. Senpai's Kawaii Imouto
9. Student Council President / Most Popular Girl In School / Queen Bee / Mary Sue
Another Yandere girl with all of your abilities.
ok reading through the script now
i like it that info chan is not as crazy, at least in the beginning
forgive my ideaguying, but if i could change it i would make it so she supports a more "non lethal" style, where as yandere would obviously be in more support of a lethal one
maybe make it so that info will teach you more about non lethal methods, for something specific i would make it clear that she hates violence, or cant stand the sight of blood or something similar
your dreams, like what was planned for the tutorial, would encourage you to kill as many as possible, in the worst ways possible that the game can offer.
dont be afraid to get a little edgy here, these parts should be at least unsettling
anyways good work so far, im looking forward to this
I discussed the possibility of a Kickstarter and the potential price here: >>275825191
Only in the Monster Girl Halloween DLC where an alien girl shows up and sets her sights on Senpai.
I'd love it if they did the solid snake thing where they tell you an optimal way to approach a scenario instead of going guns ablazing. I'd feel like if you did get spotted, rumor/rep will increase, and if the girl herself escapes, that's kind of a red flag for game over I'd say.
So if you choose to be a /u/ndere and stalk a chick, are the majority of people you're going to kill, etc. going to be guys? Or is it kind of just a "dykes. dykes everywhere" type thing? Maybe if you choose a chick it should be an all girl's school to kind of make it believable?
The backstory of the game gives Info-chan a strong motivation to encourage Yandere-chan to murder.
Info-chan wants to catch a serial killer so that she can become famous, so she wants Yandere-chan to be a killer. Info-chan wouldn't advocate non-lethal methods.I could always ditch that backstory, but I really like it...
Do you have a twitter to follow game updates at?
I've been following your project and I think it looks great.
I'm sorry that I don't really know how to support you, because if I did I would.
Also, bad luck. There's way too many kids on at this hour. Please don't get the idea that /v/ hates you.
1368x768. It is a common resolution on laptops (although in my case this is just how my monitor turned out.) I was playing on windowed but that was the only choice it gave me, if that helps any.
>10. Another Yandere girl with all of your abilities.
>She could do it herself but why get her hands dirty when Yandere-chan did all the work for her? Keikaiku Doori (TL: Keikaku means plan) Yandere-chan has been played like a damn fiddle.
>Now Yandere-chan has outlived her purpose and she had all the evidence that everything that happen is all Yandere-chan's doing or she could simply kill her outright when Yandere-chan least expected or hire faceless thugs on Yandere-chan
>She's too dangerous, even for Yandere-chan. One way or another, she must be removed at all cost.
>The final battle begins
You know how you say that the last girl will be the yandere chick maybe you could have little hints that she's on the scene and biding her time just like you are throughout the story
I've had more fun with this demo than I have with AAA games in the past few months. Kudos to you, Yanderedev.
Actually, despite what I said, I agree with his decision. Stalking a chick sounds more interesting, even if it means I have to explain away all the lesbians with chemicals in the water or something.
Alright, fine with me. I really do think that making it an "all girl's school mode" instead of a "you're all dykes" mode would make it much easier to believe though.
If the player pauses the game at 5:55 PM, I should put a picture of Yugi on Yandere-chan's cell phone screen.
You're still working on it? Damn. Usually these projects die out in a month or two. Yours looks like it'll actually be finished. I'm impressed.
Can we have an evil dead easter egg?
Just have it where you go at home and have it where everythings laughing.
>tfw I am a "SJW" (aka I am left of Hitler) and I am fucking hyped for this game
Yandere knows no political bounds. Yandere is olev. Yandere is life.
Although I do like the yuri mode addition.
What can I say? I got this monitor for fucking free.
on a serious note, I think a drive-like soundtrack with the synth, simple beats would help a lot with the atmoshpere. The game is less serious than drive, but i think tick of the clock is the perfect song for building up tension.
Just came back from your youtube channel on the comment about prices.
$5? Of course!
$15? Eh, yeah.
$20? Well if you put from your own money, and the intro looks sweet. (Can't wait for that custom senpai feature).
Thing is I'm willing to pay whatever you think fair for this game after all the effort I've seen you've put in and the hours of fun I could probably get out from it. 1.5 years from now? Let's go Yanderedev! If I can wait that long for Snk I can wait for my yandere-chan. Good luck and I'll be cheering for you.
PS: Also, if Yandere-chan gets to have customizable bust size:
Senpai custom bulge size
I'd totally love to! She's fucking hot.
You might not believe me but the catpcha I just got was "hotti"
I don't...I don't think this one can fit in.
ALso thanks for the chainsaw arm cheat
It'd fit for the same reason throwing up would. Fuck, you could make Yandere chan put laxatives in a girls food and have here kill herself as a result of shitting herself uncontrollably in public. This makes sense, but is it a good idea? Probably not. You've just gotta decide where the line's gonna be and stick to it.
i've been following your project since april, and the progress you've made is amazing. seriously, i remember when the game was just a really simple "walk around the school stalkin your senpai" idea, now it has more content than most indie games that critics covered in dick juice over the past couple years.
i'm really excited to play the final product, but please take your time because this shit is almost too good to be true.
>but how does it get much lewder than that at a highschool?
Something silly and ridiculous like the dead bodies of a boy and a girl that ragdoll into a sex pose or something or something hidden in the background of the game enviroment like a lewd manga page or billboard.
Make it a easter egg
Was about to write a message like this. Just wanted to say keep up the good work OP!
I'm not opposed to the idea, but it would depend on if a character modeller can make me a model that has blendshapes for the thighs / butt and it doesn't interfere with the animations.
It would be obscured by steam clouds, but the answer is most likely yes.
>implying there's anything creepy about stopping your bro from getting his life ruined by some whores
The tension between Infochan and Yandere is actually really well done-- it's menacing enough without foreshadowing everything. And the fact that InfoChan isn't a random talking head but instead has her own agenda is great
Oh look, it's that denialfag that keeps popping up whenever someone says something gay.
This is a game about being a girl stalking a boy, don't be so surprised there's homosex players.
>the answer is most likely yes
Can this have a bonus effect later? Like on her house? Like can she masturbate furiously to these pictures and get a power up or boost or something?
Is there like a stamina or point system that ties into getting senpai-time? Can I steal his belongings and fellate his recorder? Can I masturbate with the corner of his desk after school hours?
not really sure how time works in the game, but is there a way to slow it down in case you fucked around for too long?
i think it'd be interesting if she could go into some kind of adderall mode, so she can move and do shit a lot quicker. if there's a store/merchant mechanic to the game, that could work really well.
Then it's all good. A grill or a bi guy, it is all good. I was just remembering all of the faggots I have only encountered here that will swear to God in Heaven that they are straight as an arrow as they are watching two guys pound each other in the ass.
You can photograph Senpai and "use" the photograph at any time to lower your Yandere meter.
>If you're not a faggot you're in denial!
I love this meme
I think from like a gameplay perspective, it could tie into a sanity/stamina meter.
Like in order to keep composed and keep the facade up, you occasionally have to perv on senpai. Otherwise you start going into withdrawal and you can't be subtle no more.
Spend too long without precious senpai-time and dealing with the bitches and whore constantly surrounding you because too much to bear and you snap, leading to Bad End.
There will be nude students in the changing rooms at school, but the changing rooms are adjacent to the showers so there will always be steam clouds in the changing rooms obscuring genitalia and nipples.
OP you asked in one of your polls if we wanted it to be a fully inmersive school sim (exams, field trips, classes, clubs). Most voted for just a couple of these elements, so it doesn't hold back to project for too long. However, I gave it some thought, and decided that on my opinion classes were a must, exams could maybe be exploited (like hijacking a girl's exams so she fails and kills herself), but the point of this post was to adress the club feature.
Are you planning on adding it? I thought it would be interesting to use it in different situations, like joining one of these girls' clubs to get closer to them, gain allies, but mostly thought about exclusive content depending on the club you join (tennis club gives you tennis rackets, light music club gives you instruments as weapons, baseball club goes without an explanation) and all your imagination can come up with. What do you think?
I like he way you think.
The withdrawal sounds interesting as long as it's done well, and by well I mean not rushing the limit without your precious senpai time. Like with smoking simulator, to an extreme.
The facade up could be affected when you murder a girl, the yandere meter goes down slower and slower, depending on how much you've gone without your fix of senpai
I actually don't know anything about how to submit a game to stream greenlight. I can't just fill out a form and submit some screenshots and videos and have a page pop up? I need some kind of consumable "submission" that I only have a limited number of? Do I have to get these from other Steam members?
Sorry, submitting the game to Greenlight feels so far away that I haven't educated myself on the submission process yet. Could you elaborate, please?
I was thinking of adding clubs as something that grants you a buff and provids you with a weapon, but "getting closer" to a girl and "gaining allies" aren't really features I was planning on.
Martial Arts Club: Yandere-chan gains the ability to perform a (loud) Judo throw that can knock out a student.
Sports Club: Yandere-chan can carry around a baseball bat without being considered suspicious.
Gardening Club: Yandere-chan can carry around a pair of garden shears without being considered suspicious.
Sewing Club: Yandere-chan has access to an unlimited number of clean uniforms.
Photography Club: Yandere-chan has access to a camera superior to her phone's camera, and is not considered suspicious when snapping photographs.
Light Music Club: Yandere-chan has access to a guitar case, allowing her to transport corpses without being considered suspicious.
Drama Club: Yandere-chan gains access to a mask / wig, allowing her to disguise herself when committing murders. (Can be balanced to not be overpowered.)
Computer Club: Yandere-chan gains the ability to remotely hack a student's cell phone or computer, gaining access to embarassing information that can damage that student's reputation.
Archery Club: Yandere-chan gains access to a bow and arrow for long-distance murders.
Track Team: Yandere-chan can run 50% faster.
You'd have to attend the club at least once a week, or you'd get clicked out.
>Computer Club: Yandere-chan gains the ability to remotely hack a student's cell phone or computer, gaining access to embarassing information that can damage that student's reputation.
Can I cause a schoolwide Fappening?
I'm hoping for a dynamic music system, where instruments / tracks fade in and fade out depending on the current scenario.
Player is acting normal: Peaceful, serene music.
Player is performing suspicious actions such as trespassing, stealing, wielding a weapon: Unnerving, tense music.
Player performs violent actions, is hunting down a witness, or is covered in blood: Disturbing horror music.
I'm imagining music that is pretty subdued and subtle, mostly ambient stuff that creates a mood and stays in the background.
What? No kendo club? What do I do if I want to cut up girls with a sword?
Oh, I understand now. I'm sorry to hear that your plans fell apart.
Can you "gift" that to someone else? It would definitely save me $100, so I wouldn't turn it down if you offered it to me. You're welcome to contact me at [email protected] if you want to talk about it further.
Oh I definitely want to include a katana in the game! It would be pretty well hidden (perhaps the principle confiscated it from a delinquent in the 80s and kept it for himself ever since) but I don't know what other kind of buffs / benefits a kendo club could offer.
Man, OP, it's too bad this is only a one man project because there's so much room for added depth with all the suggestions people are making in these threads.
Hopefully if you manage to finish the game a dedicated mod community will emerge which will allow for some of these mechanics to be implemented so that we can really hardcore role play as the girl.
I don't have any experience making it, only implementing it.
I can't really find many examples of tracks that sound EXACTLY like what I want; I always think "Like this, but a little more somber" or "Like this, but a little less cheerful" or "Like this, but with a few more instruments.
Here are some tracks, none of them are 100% what I want, but the sort of thing that I show to musicians when I say "I want it kind of like this, except for _____"
Peaceful music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=676dtYw2TJs
Something is wrong music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRBjNHxEAqE
Killing spree music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UM5bONUMQM
I don't fucking know, I can never find anything that properly conveys what I want the game's OST to sound like...
I'm trying to use it with UE4 with an online friend.
We have spent the past 5 hours trying to sync files with one another and with no luck. This is beyond madness.
not claiming i know what op wants, but soundtrack for the movie maniac is always what i think of when i see this thread
i think something like that would be really fucking nice for a theme, except with less 80s synth and more cliche anime styles.
still, its a really nice track
