Can someone post the video summery? I don't feel like suffering today
Incompetent Alex does not understand vidya, half pays attention to it, and berates his virtual horse because it's not a hoverboard and it trips over things. He ends it with exploding bombs by the horse and attempting to set it ablaze.

For a guy who boasts of how serious and realistic his game is, he sure hates when his horse acts realistically.

The guy who made the two previous code audit videos made a new one where he shows how to disassemble and modify the code (Highlight at 8:55, triggers all the easter eggs in the game)

Alex, if you ever read this; Do the right thing and pause the recurring pleadges on your Patreon until you figure out how to sort out the fucking code, you got the resources to hire someone to help you with that.
Or let someone else take over the game, cause this shit's beyond broken af yo.

Did you forget that tinyBuild was working on the game at some point and either tinyBuild or Alex broke up the partnership.

While tinyBuild was making their version, alex wanted to work on his version at the same time to keep people interested.

When he dropped working with TinyBuild, that’s when I knew the game would just go downhill from there. Without another person to work on the game with him, I’m sure it’ll turn to shit with his equally shitty programming.

That was pretty much the point where I knew this project was doomed. Before that I really only paid cursory attention, watching the videos he put out once in a while to see where the game was (supposedly) at, but when I heard he had parted ways with TinyBuild and it was because he didn't like the way they were rewriting the engine...I'm not a fan of any managed language but C# is miles better than fucking javascript - and correct me if I'm wrong, but that's what the game is written in, I believe - and Alex basically telling a real programming to fuck off so he can keep using his obvious monstrosity of an engine out of laziness made it very obvious where the project was going.

Never support a patreon for an in-development game, kids. At best you'll spend way more money on it than you would if you bought it at release. At worst you'll end up subsidizing the developer's lifestyle for years as progress slows down until it stops altogether. It should be obvious by now where YanSim is going.

It was written in JavaScript before Tinybuild ported it to C# for him.

Why does he focus on the tiny little things in the game that no one cares about? Why doesn’t he just implement the rivals and add the other shit later?
because his game is a shit and if he puts Osana, and other major gameplay elements, in then he'll have to start making the game actually playable and not buggy. He's too incompetent; however, to get rid of all the placeholders, shitty coding, etc. etc. etc. to actually release his piece of steaming garbage and have to move on to another project so he can keep his few patreon pigs around. If they even want to stay around when they realize Alex has spoiled everything in the game and it does not live up to their expectation. We're talking about a dumbass who even blames slow progress on people sending him emails.

I maintain that Yandere Sim is never going to come out and he's going to (try to) disappear when his patreon runs dry.

I think when the time comes to scrap the project that instead of just leaving entirely he'll migrate to twitch and focus more on streaming since he clearly enjoys doing that more than game development; not to mention that his viewership on twitch is still on the rise albeit more slowly than it used to. Interestingly, he did post some what-if plans on his 2018 transparency post going over what he'll do if the Patreon ever goes under $1k/mo:

Gotta love the general vagueness and uncertainty of someone who took their easy money for granted and is now stuck with nothing to show for it. I'm especially curious about what these "simple game ideas" are because I doubt when he inevitably does go under $1k that he doesn't follow though on this. Hell even optimistically assuming that he does make these simple games they will be laughably half-assed for the amount of work put into them, and no one except trolls and his die-hard fans will give a shit about them.

TLDR He is literally keeping the whole development of the game hostage if they stop giving him money. You look like an excpetional child with issues with those stupid threats, Alex. You tried to pull the same shit when you whine about many emails you receive as an excuse to procastinate more. Don't blame others for your incompetence at making things, you dumb motherfucker

It's hard to take something hostage when it's already dead anyway.
