You know he's gonna have to make, like, 12 more of these videos.
Well, here's sort of one.
Some life lessons from mother.
Flowers, arts and SCIENCE!
So if my recommended videos listings on youtube are anything to go by, there's a good deal of Internet drama happening around this...Whatever sort of game this is supposed to be...
Most of the drama is from Yandere Dev (the creator) making the ill-advised decision to disable comments on his videos a few weeks ago. He made a WordPress post later explaining why he did it, his eventual realization that it was a Very Bad Idea that only made things worse, and apologized for everything.
PS: For anyone wondering why almost all past posts with videos now show blanks, it's because of the site overhaul accidentally breaking the embeds. They're still there, you can see the links in the page source; to restore the embed, just do any edit to the relevant posts, even a null one (i.e. save with no changes).

Basically, after the video about Osana still not being out a lot of people started criticizing Yandev's poor coding skills that were making everything much harder and slower than they needed to be. He disabled comments, with predictable results, and the whole thing led to a lot of people losing faith in his ability to complete the game.

Uh, no, according to what I gathered, that's not the reason. It's because people where constantly asking about his contract with TinyBuild, which he believed he was legally forbidden to discuss in any way (specifically, he feared that saying anything even remotely "negative" about it, including that it had been already terminated months ago, would put him in big legal trouble).
Yeah, while I have been trying to ignore the whole thing as much as possible, there seemed to have been a lot of factors in play like his co-operation with Tinybuild not really been that great due of how Dev wants things to work and then refusing to talk about it, and people thinking he's not doing any progress at all on top of that.
The way the subreddit tells it is that the contract failed because Yandev's code was poor, and he refused to change his style to the more standard one that Tinybuild used.
I'm so glad I don't pay more attention to this game.
Sports, Drama, Cooking, Vidya Gaems and Tasking
The dev is almost done populating the school, that's good, even if I think all these people that act as sentries make a violent run a little too difficult (You have to memorize routines for every single club member, the bullies, random passersby and teachers). Then again, the game is supposed to be challenging and I plan on using non-lethal methods, so I don't know how the people planning to use other methods feel.
In another note, using a weight attached to pigtails as a weapon of murder seems just a bit too much like Looney Tunes for my tastes (where does Yan-chan even get that? Why is she able to carry it so easily?)
Is it just me who, ever since the fiasco from a few months ago that saw YandDev temporarily shut down the comments on his videos, has suddenly started seeing Youtube recommending videos whose titles are blunt about "criticizing" this game and/or its developer (read: calling it/him shitty or the like), whether or not it's related to the aforementioned fiasco? I haven't opened any one of them, mind you; I don't want to waste my time on a video that could very well be a case of Complaining About Shows You Don't Like or even Complaining About Shows You Don't Watch.

Blame it on the Youtube algorithm. YandereDev has always had quite the hatedom. Explaining the reasons for why would come dangerously close to importing drama. Those videos have always existed, but thanks to the recent comment section fiasco, they found an audience, so Youtube's algorithm is treating them as popular videos on the subject and brings them up to anyone who has seen YanSim related content.
Back to the game. I was looking over the Version notes for this new update and, while I had known it was coming thanks to Reddit, I'm still bummed that 9 out of the 12 Rainbow boys/girls have been removed. On the other hand, it also says something that with all the recent additions, it took a while for me to notice all of them but Kokona, Riku and Saki were gone.
Light Music Club, Counselor and other minor stuff.
You know, I still wonder how the Bullies Cast Herd is actually referred to by other students and the school faculty, because there's no way that they'd have any sort of positive rep or not placed under intense scrunity by the teachers if they were actually called "the Bullies".
On a different note, I almost never see Yandere Simulator / YandereDev hate videos anymore.

I'm sure they still exist, but Youtube's algorithm no longer shows them as "popular," thus not giving them as much exposure. To be honest, the whole mess felt a lot like a lot of people jumping on a bandwagon, with Youtube's algorithm making things worse.
On a lighter note, the Music club looks cute, and the minigame looks both cute and fun.

... Even if the video lasted only until the "No, this changes nothing about the game's development" point, I still would've called it worthwhile to watch. It's very educational, to say the least.
I can't watch the video. Can anyone give a quick summary?
The most basic summary,he says the game is in V slice,which is basically when you have a protype to show investers,he goes into detail why he doesn't want to do a kickstarter because he's wary of previous let downs by other developers.
I, uh... I'm gonna stay out of this conversation. Fuck the internet, man.
