Yandere Simulator Possibly Headed to Kickstarter

YandereSimulator-Illustration-Yukata

The murderously unique Yandere Simulator has just released an update video asking fans as to how the game’s development should proceed, clearly boding ill as the fate and future of the game potentially hangs in the balance.

The update video:

Currently the Kickstarter choice is the most desired option according to the poll, quite possibly meaning that the game could be on the way to a crowd funding campaign, securing the unique title the resources it needs or at least allowing the developers to pocket the cash and flee – the game can be followed via its official blog.

    • You probably weren’t around when he tried to make a fighting game. He went around asking for advice (actually fishing for complements) and somebody told him everything that he needed to do to bring his game up to quality spec. Yandere Dev threw a hissy fit and complained that nobody was supporting him. Turns out, Helpful Guy was a Skygirls Dev. It’s on that principle I won’t give him money

  • By the time this game comes out it’ll have a million features like fully customizable characters down to the strands of their DNA, the ability to alter reality, and lots of hats for your yandere.

  • He makes a detailed update video every month and releases builds with new progress on them consistently. I’d say the guy has a better track record than most kickstarter projects and you’d probably safe backing this one if you want it to succeed.

  • Yandere-dev has made it very clear that he’s not one for kickstarter campaigns but with all the update videos, speed of development, and the actual time he’s taken to listen to his audience, I know at this point everybody can put their trust into him; just look at the poll he made to accompany the video.

    There’s only been two kickstarter campaigns I have felt was safe and good enough to invest in: Accelerator t-shirts by Anonymous of Jacksonville and Yandere-Simulator. I for one actually want Yandere-Sim to be made into the highest quality it can be made into, so why not pitch in some money? I was gonna buy it anyway.

  • I vote neither Options, best option is put the Game on “Steam Green-Light”, any other videogame publisher you work with is going to try to censor your content. Also there are alot of people on “hongfire” (Dot) com that will help you do this shit for free bro! Let the Fans help you alot of smart people online willing to do it for free just give them access, Also Fuck Patreon Fuck kickstarter they are scams,- 90% of the time the game developer gets cold feet & leaves with the money!

  • A Kickstarter project with the goal of not letting anything go would be ideal. Make the KickStarter, give your team a “this is what is done, this is what must be done.” And see how far you can take it.

    For those that harp on this game for lack of story/gameplay… This game’s design has a sort of resemblence to many Illusion.jp games like Artificial Academy… Instead of a game which only purpose is f*#%ing people (otherwise has no gameplay) this one is killing people… Oddly appeals to a similar audience… Can’t figure out why…..

  • The problem I see is that the game isn’t really in a state to sell it on Kickstarter. There’s still issues with collision detection and a lack of any meaningful content. What he has is glorified demo lacking in story or gameplay content to keep people interested for more than a few hours at most.

    • YanDev said in the video linked that he himself doesn’t think the game is ready for Kickstarter yet, that’s why he asks what the fans think. He would rather spend another year working on it and THEN go on Kickstarter to present a product people can gift money to without the creeping feeling that they might be betrayed later.

    • Sorry, this is kickstarter, man. People hand out money for ideas there. So many people have run away with money now, it’s not funny. Actually it is, for me and others, but not for those people who lost money.

    • Isn’t that what Kickstarter is all about though? Getting money for an unfinished product that you know people wouldn’t actually pay for in its completed state, then releasing the thing half-finished once you’ve made your profits?

  • The game is advanced enough that he could already start a kickstarter… Quite a few projects on kickstarter are nothing but concepts on paper and still get kickerstarted, Yandere Simulator already has a game built and many features working. He could even put it on Steam Early Access.

    • You play as a yandere; a monster in sexy clothing. Of course, it’s disturbing.

      I’m half expecting feminists claim that it makes assertive women look bad or something nonsensical like that because it looks Japanese rather than American.

    • First time I’ve seen anyone say that.
      Usually everyone’s like, “It’s a girl stalking and murdering people, so it’s okay! She’s strong and independent! I love equality and progressiveness!”

        • Most of those people who want to be an action hero also don’t want to be a mentally ill high schooler who brutally murders, bullies, and tortures other high schoolers for literally no good reason.

          I’m not really sure why there needs to be a severe psychopathy simulator game, especially when it’s played so straight.

          Also, as a disclaimer, I’m sure it’s covered under free speech or whatever and it’s great that it is, but this game just has no redeeming qualities. They’re free to make it, but I’m also free to hope it fails in development.

        • Except there is no narrative. It’s just a sandbox “kill all the girls in this highschool” simulator game.

          It’s not the opposite side of a horror game, because those, at least, have (sometimes) interesting stories to tell and emotions to convey. This game is literally only made to simulate brutal murders while wearing cute outfits, which makes it even creepier.

          The creator’s idea for this was “I should make a game that simulates elaborate execution of high school girls”, not “I should create a horror game from the monster’s perspective.”

          It literally has no depth beyond “You can kill those high school kids and also you’re a girl.”

      • I don’t think this game’s basic idea is to be okay, gender aside. If it was okay, it wouldn’t interest anybody. The game would get 1/10 from every reviewer if spreading rumours was the nastiest thing happening in it.
