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.

i like how white knights in comments unironically call people who said something bad about YD as gremlins.

comment: "Now, how long does it take to make a game?"

I accidentally found her tumblr (archive), which she used to complain about anti-yansim. Particularly she retread the whole argument about AAA games here (archive)

She also has a fanfiction.net (archive) account where she post her rape/dub-con/slave/shota fanfics of Hetalia, in case you forgot what kind of fangirl that Alex attract

And have this "meme" comparable to Leftist Memes.

He doesn't have a life out of yansim though, lmao. by his own admission, and it's his own fault.

Coding isn't hard, not with unity, and not with c#. It can be hard if you complicate things and don't follow conventions that are designed to make things easier to debug and easier to work with. Once you have a simple understanding of the way computers deal with logic, you have everything you need to be able to plan out pseudo-code and turn it into real code. And assets and engine tools do a lot of this for you so you can work on your game.


I dunno dude. there are plenty of exceptional people who follow Alex to watch him crash and burn, and they probably underestimate how much work coding is, but it's been thoroughly demonstrated that Alex's code is piss poor and has made it unnecessarily hard on himself by coding the way that he does, and progress and performance is impacted by it, and Alex just denies it. And we make fun of Alex because he denies that his code is bad, even when it's apparent.

Lack of assets is not really an excuse to not finish a prototype of a mechanic either, the drowning, or any other mechanic can be used on a gray capsule or square just as well as an actual finalized model. I'll also chalk this up to the way he codes though since a gentle breeze will break what he has going on.

Because he's too incompetent to implement the major mechanics he promised so he's focusing on little things to please his 12 yr old fans and create the illusion he's doing work

I like how his plan for below $3000 is to start working on increasing his income via more Youtube videos. There are a good $2000 before lack of support starts effecting the game. which is, you know, why they support him in the first place. His focus is clearly money at this point, but we have known that for a long time now, this just reinforces that point.
