    I understand where you're coming from, but all the same, I genuinely believe only an individual without a solid grasp of the difference between fantasy and real life--essentially, someone mentally incapable of telling the two apart--would act out events they saw in a video game because they were "inspired" by or could "relate to" the protagonist. 
    When I was thirteen and at the height of my emo phase, I was bullied, liked boys who didn't like me back, and had issues at home and in my family to deal with. I was also heavily into Creepy Pasta. I didn't become a psychopathic murderer. I didn't steal or hurt other people for the sake of it, or for revenge. I knew, even as an edgy kid, the difference between right and wrong, fact and fiction. Those who don't, like the Slenderman girls in Wisconsin, should definitely be barred from these sorts of things, but it isn't fair to blame the source material and stick that stigma onto all its fans, no matter how young or how edgy. Unless your parents have failed entirely at teaching you, or unless there is an underlying mental illness at play, a normal human being won't act on something just because they saw it in a game. 
    Even if we assume these kids have awful parents and don't know a damned thing about what's right and what isn't, that still isn't Alex's fault. As a content creator, I write some pretty dark stuff, but that doesn't make me accountable if a kid reads what I write and does something stupid. It's not up to games or books or anything to always teach positive or healthy lessons. If someone doesn't want their kid exposed to this sort of thing, they need to monitor what their kids play, watch, etc. The parents or adults in a child's life need to be the ones who teach these girls that you can't hurt those you dislike, or that rejection is part of life (these are also things that should be taught/learned at an age much younger than Alex's fans are, so if they don't know by now, that is again on bad parenting). Yandere Sim doesn't teach anything--it shows a scenario. That's like saying Pokémon teaches kids to go out and capture wild animals in their backyard. It's a scenario that exists well enough in fiction, but shouldn't be applied to real life. It's a game, not something meant to be educational in its nature.

    Okay, so while I think it's horrible that this child was inspired by YanSim, and while I've stated many times in the past that I detest YandereDev, I feel the need to somewhat defend him here.
    It is not okay that his fanbase is full of easily manipulated children. It is not okay that they are exposed to many of these games elements, or (especially or) to Alex's ghastly behavior. However. It is not entirely his fault that this child, or any child, plays YanSim. He should make it more obvious that it is an "adult" game, yes. But in this case, like many others, it is primarily on the parents. For Christ's sake, this girl is ten. I wasn't allowed to go on YouTube unsupervised until I was in high school, much less download anything without my parents knowing about it. The simple fact that kids have access to any of this stuff, whether it's the game or his streams or YouTube channel, is the fault of parents not monitoring what their children do. I mean, come on, how do you not at some point take a look at your ten-year-old's screen and wonder why she's playing/viewing a game with blood, murder, etc. 
    Further on that point, I am entirely supportive of parents banning their kids from watching YanSim, for the fact that A) they're too young for this content anyway, B) they're too young to be exposed to Alex's obscene behavior, and C) doing so would likely kill a decent percentage of his fan base, and thus hurt YanSim considerably. However, that's not likely--they're far more likely to blame the game and the creator for making something so offensive (which it is, to all senses, but not for the same reasons they'd likely suggest) than their own shit parenting skills.
    ALSO whoever wrote this article is a moron, I'm convinced. It's such poor journalism--hell, at one point they mention Senpai by his name with no indication of who tf he is or his relevance. Sorry, mini-rant done.

    Hey, so just a follow-up on my point above, about how Alex doesn't seem to think clearly before implementing new features, and also on someone's point (I think it was here, anyway) about volunteers claiming he's finished Osana but wants to keep milking his patreon for the time being.
    I was considering writing a short non-fiction piece for a class that followed the development of YanSim (might scrap the idea now, it's too difficult to trace). While looking up different milestones in the development process, I noticed how much has changed in YanDev's goals/videos. Even watching old vids on Osana, he at least looked like he had a clear path in mind, knew what he wanted to do with the game. Now it just feels like he's tossing things lazily into it without consideration, as if he's not bothering to think about what consequence they could have. 
    Just something I'd add on to. I can't quote a specific video because they're all pretty much the same, but if you look back at his earlier ones, there definitely feels like there's been a change. I'm curious as to why--maybe I'm the only one.

    I completely agree. Everything he adds on just ignores all the existing problems and leaves just another incomplete mess behind when all's said and done. 
    Also, is anyone else gonna question (for the umpteenth time, it seems) how freakin' convoluted and tedious this gameplay has gotten? Like, it made sense to have students follow particular schedules that the player would have to then learn, with some opportunities sprinkled in that would allow you to alter/manipulate those schedules for your purposes. But for real, let's evaluate the latest manipulation tactic:
    -Find a wrench somewhere to destroy a water fountain
    -Find a power cord to plug in at said water fountain
    -Find and use a screwdriver to break power cord
    -Turn a switch to electrify puddle 
    -Go to vending machine for salty snack
    -Find student to give salty snack
    -Student then becomes thirsty, goes to fountain for water, and gets electrocuted
    Idk guys, maybe I'm missing something, but this isn't fun. It's boring and drawn out to the point that I'd want to quit halfway through. Like, I get it, games have to have quests--Ocarina of Time has a million mini quests before you could do virtually anything. But at least those quests were somewhat interesting or fun, rather than mindnumbingly dull. Why would I go through all that trouble just to electrocute a student, when I could more easily tranq/kill them elsewhere? 
    Also, with the new electrocution method, there are a number of suspension-of-disbelief issues. For starters, why would there be a switch to make the outlet work? No normal school has that--the outlet should have electricity flowing constantly, this isn't a residential space. Second, why the hell would the school have water foundations and outlets THAT close together? That's a hazard in itself, and adds to the issues with this being such a credible, elite academic institution.
    On that note, I'm left questioning what the consequences of using that elimination method would be. Like, in the bathroom it's easy to imagine how it would play out. No one will see you tampering with the switch, and even if the student's cause of death comes to light, it's easy to have the school chalk it up to simple wiring malfunction or something, and reenforce the switches so you can't break them again. In the hallway, there's so much greater risk of getting caught, and then what's the school supposed to do? Eliminate outlets at water fountains? I guess I'm bringing this up to say, what's stopping us from just electrocuting every single rival on the first day of each week?
    YanDev really isn't thinking clearly with these. Whereas he once seemed to think through ideas before implementing them, now it's like he doesn't stop to consider how much dumber his "solutions" are than his previous implementations. For all his attempts to make this game harder, in some ways he's making it easier. Sure, I can't stab Osana to death, but if I can just electrocute her with no repercussions, hell I'll just keep on doing that and win the game! In one shot the teachers, delinquents, guidance counselor, head master, and student council all end up being entirely useless defense measures.
    Ugh. This is getting too long, but as I'm sure y'all can tell, I'm annoyed. Sometimes I wish I didn't get so involved in the development or anything, because every new update just gets more and more disappointing.

    You right you right. What else can we expect from someone who considers small-breasted women amputees
    (Throwback to when high school me had a crush on YanDev and kept trying to email him, up until I learned his “opinion” on girls with small boobs. Way to amp up predicting insecurities #crushed :P )

    I thought Kokona was the Boobs McGee character? Or as markiplier calls her, "Boobs McKenzie"

    LMFAO, I remember these! Gawd, I forgot how horribly misshapen they used to be  .
    Also, totally random, but I just remembered this because PAX East is coming up. So I'm sure y'all have seen this video at some point, right? It's Markiplier's animated YanSim vid from years ago. I used to find it hilarious, and in HS I always wanted to meet Mark at a PAX East convention. SO, my friend (who would jokingly compare me to Ayano bc I was a crazy school girl in love with Mark) suggested I cosplay as Ayano, attend a convention, and act out the "Your hair would look great on my wall" line from his playthrough (I'm laughing typing this bc it now seems so ridiculous).
    ...yeah. Ultimately never got to do it bc scheduling and whatnot, and while I still think it woulda been funny, I'm glad as hell that I never spent money to advertise this shit show

    Not to mention the fire extinguisher doesn't even have any new animations--he's just reusing the dumbbell animations and passing it off as a new weapon. The characters are buggy (sewing genius still "sews"--with sound effects and purple(?) uniform included--when he's supposed to be in class. Admittedly, this bug is kinda funny, considering he's reading the colored uniform in class). Other characters seem to have no purpose whatsoever. Didn't YanDev say he wanted 100 characters in the game? So far we have:
    AyanoSenpai4 Student Council members2 Basu SistersKuu DereBullied Girl5 kids per club (Martial Arts, Occult, Gardening, Cooking, Art, Light Music, Photography, Sports, Science, Gaming, Drama)--> so 555 bullies5 delinquents10 faculty (5 teachers, 1 gym teachers, nurse, headmaster, counselor, and then Info-chan cause what the hell)10 rivals(You don't want to know how long it took me to calculate that. Last time I paid attention to this game, the rainbow kiddies were all still in, plus Oka. I recounted at least 10 times, so screw you Alex for making me do that)
    Most of these characters have a purpose. The clubs offer benefits, the faculty are lowkey bosses and can spell immediate game over, the rivals are the whole POINT of this shit show (despite their lack of existence currently), the bullies are....um--what was their point again? obstacles I think, same goes for the delinquents and Student Council. Largely every student serves some legitimate purpose, either as a hindrance/obstacle or a potential benefit to the player (save for Kuu Dere, Bullied Girl, and the Basu Sisters, who literally don't have much of a point besides being out-of-the-way obstacles. Can't wait till Alex releases the "in-depth tots original" backstory vid for these succubus girls).
    The new characters have practically no purpose! Bullied Girl is there for show and will be removed, I get that, but what do the latest few characters offer? They're bland. Okay, so one has a task, big whoop. They're not memorable at all, and whatever tiny benefit they may give is inconsequential. If anything, making it a task to have to MAKE a new uniform to fulfill Kokona's task seems tedious, no? Instead of making it so the player has to, idk, commit to a club or build skill to fulfill her task, they instead just go and get some lazy "shy" character a soda, and he does their bidding. How is that fun?? Or am I missing something??
    I just...UGH. I've never been more frustrated with one of Jay's playthroughs. No offense to him, he does his best, but these new characters were so dull and the tasks uninteresting, to the point I got bored halfway through the video. Even the new kill animation (while admittedly grotesque and suitable for a game like this, a somewhat plausible "accidental" death option) only applies to one character, so it's ultimately useless.
    Also, YANDERE DEV, STOP GIVING EVERYTHING AWAY! I swear to high hell that by the time this game is released (which we know it won't be, unless it goes the Hello Neighbor route) no one will want to play it, because he'll have given everything away. Nothing will be a challenge anymore, save for trying to keep your eyes open as you wade through the monotony of the game's laundry list of tasks to do. I respected the option for peaceful elimination, I really did, and I liked the notion of having each character have their own unique tasks/love interests to give the world some depth. But is that all really important? And does it have to all be interconnected? It should be optional for the player, not required, because it gets old hella quick.
    Ugh, sorry, rant over. This new update has me pissed off, big time.

    I will give it--these look quite a bit better than the old ones. They look a bit more polished and quite a bit prettier. However, I agree with you. Alex should definitely be more focused on working on the newer models and fitting assets to those, rather than updating so-called "placeholders."

    So Jay just posted a new video (link here) and the first few minutes were dedicated to a new task Alex wrote in for members of the Light Music Club. 
    For those who can’t watch, a summary:
    The girl with green striped hair asks you to take a picture of the band leader when she’s by herself, because she thinks the leader is putting on a facade with her new punk attitude and style. Jay took a picture and delivered as promised, and all we got from it was Green Stripe saying “oh guess that’s really her true self then lol never mind.”
    A pointless add-in, if you ask me, because you gain literally nothing (maybe some positive reputation points but that’s about it). Right off the bat I saw bugs—Green Stripe’s legs glitched through her chair when she stood, and the voice acting was almost entirely drowned out by the sound of the drummer playing music on THE FLOOR ABOVE. 
    But yeah, just something to add. Jay admitted to only making a vid on this bc people on Alex’s website said they wanted it. I s2g without YouTubers like him Yandere Simulator wouldn’t be nearly as popular, yet its these tiny updates that help keep people hooked.
    *Note: I don’t blame Jay, I love his videos and he’s really entertaining. I just hate how Alex reaps the benefit off of Jay’s content, when really he doesn’t deserve any more exposure. I wish Jay would stop wasting his time with YanSim, but he seems to still somewhat enjoy it, so oh well.

    I’m—I’m actually fucking speechless.
    10k? 10 thousand friggin’ dollars?! Are you kidding me?! For me, that’s:
    •part of a tuition payment
    •textbooks for the rest of my undergrad career
    •rent for me and my roommates for the next 6 months to a year
    Not to mention how much that could go towards assets for the game, like you said. And yet he was willing to pay that much for a FREAKING SUBREDDIT. Unbelievable. This is where his money is going, likely money’s he’s “earned” (using that term HELLA loosely) from YouTube and Patreon (I still consider the latter a form of stealing, since he’s never going to deliver the finished project his fans paid for). This is his idea of controlling an uncontrollable problem, and it’s gotten way out of hand. I’d kill to see any other developer act this way, but again it’s a moot point, since no other developer would demonstrate this level of idiocy, irresponsibility, or immaturity like Alex does.

    I totally agree, but honestly, can we blame them? Alex is a con man, plain and simple, and when you put enough faith in someone you’re almost willing to believe anything that shows them in a good light. Hell, I was there, and there are even times when I see videos like this where I start to doubt how terrible Alex truly is. I know what it’s like to feel like the world is against you, and to have depression that pushes you to the brink, so I’m almost inclined to feel bad—until you either stop and realized how BADLY he’s milking this, OR how none of this is genuine AT ALL (as demonstrated by the artist’s statements). 
    But others don’t get the chance to see that. They want to believe him, and given how the internet can be a terrible place full of lies and rumors, can we blame them fully for not being willing to accept things that show him in his true, disgusting state? 
    I don’t agree with them, and I wish his fans would wake up to the reality that this man is going to keep hurting them until they finally save “Enough is enough” and stop supporting him. That said, though, it breaks my heart to see people who may very likely be doubting Alex secretly but are too afraid to say or admit it, meanwhile Alex is getting all he can out of their dwindling sympthies.
    Enough IS enough. Alex, I hope you’re reading this, because I want you to know, as a girl who once looked up to you and cherished the person she thought you were: you are DESPICABLE. You are utter trash, a waste of space, and frankly should drop off the face of this planet for what you’ve inflicted upon members of your community. The pain, the guilt, the belief in someone who will never come through for them—your fans deserve more, but you’re too STUPID and CONCEITED to see that! I hope you rot, you sick jerk.

    New video up. I'm about halfway through it myself, and you know, I was ACTUALLY willing to believe what he was putting forward--until about 5 minutes in. Watch and you'll see what I mean. V-slice mentality my butt.

    Okay, given how every YouTuber and their mother is posting about the release of the final chapter of Bendy and the Ink Machine, I'm wondering if Alex is gonna try to ride that wave of popularity and throw in a BATIM easter egg.
    Can we just appreciate, though, how in this new trend of video games getting released part by part, almost every one seems to suck? Like with Hello Neighbor, enough people had time to theorize with the different builds, so that when the actual game came out, the story was so disjointed and terrible, so now the creators are trying to fix it with additional game/build released (though from what I've seen it's doing little to build up the game's reputation. With BATIM, they released the chapters slowly and ended with something that pretty much screams "It was all a dream/nightmare/hallucination/endless cycle," which is pretty much an awful buildup to a supposed sequel coming out. And, obviously, we see how false/overhyped buildup and crazy amounts of builds/updates have hurt Yandere Sim (not the only thing, granted, but still).
    At this point, I'm seriously questioning the video games that have achieved peak popularity now, plus I'm starting to wonder if Alex won't see what games like BATIM and HN are pulling and try it himself. Game got a shitty ending/nonsensible plotlines? Draw it all out into a shitty cliffhanger and sequel to further milk your fans for cash! 
    I just...ugh. Sorry, I'm a bit pissed right now, because I hate seeing games with such promise go down the drain.
