I remember a long time ago when I still liked the game, I watched one of his videos (can't remember which one) and I just thought to myself: "Why are you telling me how to play the newest update?" He is making a game, he would enjoy, not what is fun anymore.

Exactly. He likes playing it, so he doesn't care other don't- as long as he still gets money. But playing through every update just spoils everything.

I don't dig the concept, but I wonder if his game will ever be finished considering prolonging the game and making it have a feature creep is his main income. I don't really see the motivating factors for actually delivering a finished game.

Nearly a year has passed since his rather large subreddit flipout, and nothing has changed. His game's still stuck in hell as he collects his ever declining pension.

By the look of it, either he half-asses the thing and shits it out in a few years, or he'll ride his sinking ship until his death. Both seem pretty bleak.

I feel like the most we're gonna get is Osana and then yandere dev will try to vanish off the internet.

I think we shouldn't ignore the appeal of being an e-celeb for people who might have not much going on in their lives. That attention is addictive.

Plus he still makes a decent income from streaming. The dude is basically unemployable at this point, it's probably his only source of shekels that don't come from Daddy.

Blah, blah - new update. It's mostly bug fixes but...

YandereDev had a volunteer go work on adding a Discord-knockoff called "Yancord".
You meet a person called "Selene2005" who likes the Moonlit Warrior Selene franchise.
The conversations end up becoming long hypothetical situations about judging criminals and morality of killing them.
Near the end "Selene2005" goes off into the deep end and rambles about "evil" she needs to go think.

Now for the people in the back who still haven't noticed:
  • Moonlit Warrior.
  • Selene is the goddess of the moon in Greek mythology the Roman equivalent being "Luna".

TL;DR: He's covertly shilling Lunar Scythe in Yandere Simulator.

LunarDev - 2024?

God, he just can't fucking let go can he? I don't even get why. Nobody's going back to play or even look at that trashy game, has he always been so clingy to his older stuff?

One of the most common traits I've noticed amongst lolcows is that for whatever reason they just can't let go of anything they created. Usernames are the best example of this - something so small and insignificant but for some reason they are so proud of them and feel the need to use the same one (or some small variation of it) on every website.

Alex never gave up on Lunar scyth and this probably won't be the last time that he made a reference to her. Then again the Lunar scyth girl shares almost all of Alex's beliefs so it wouldn't be too surprising that he's so obsessed with her.

On a related note didn't Alex take the pose mod from the guy he got to do the discord knockoff?

I think it's that precisely because "Selene" shares Alex' beliefs that he's unwilling to let go of Lunar Scythe. Think about it: he has stated that he wanted to implement this from the very start, despite it by his own admission having nothing to do with the lore and the backstory. It relates to the post-game, despite a preview of it being implemented before the first rival is. I'm of course only speculating, but it feels like Alex thinks that his game should have a 'message' that the world needs to know. That 'message' being the exact same one Lunar Scythe had. Selene is pretty much Alex' mouthpiece. Ironic then, that said mouthpiece gives so much thought to whether or not people can change when Alex himself has barely changed.

Serious talk: there are people who question whether or not video games could be considered art and while I'd hesitate to use such a loaded term, I would say that a video game could be considered on par with a tv series or a movie in terms of depth and storytelling. That means I do believe there is and should be room for social commentary, moral quandries and philosophical exploration. However, that does not mean that something is suddenly not badly written because it has a 'message'. There is a time and a place for everything and a video game about a kawaii animu girl killing other kawaii animu girls to get her senpai to notice her isn't the place for discussing the foundations of objective justice. It's so grating, it could be compared to a cheesy 80s action flick grinding to a screeching halt to discuss the distinction between democracy and mob rule. Why?

At this point I put it in the category of "Duke Nukem Forever." I heard stories from the devs who worked on DNF that they'd be told to scrap work because the lead saw something at E3 or a reveal trailer and now we need to go in that direction. It's not so much "Feature creep" as it is not having the ability to stand on a decision and see it through. The fact that YandereDev keeps adding easter eggs and new content but still hasn't fixed his spaghetti code or made a solid base to build upon and show as proof of concept speaks highly of how badly he needs someone on top of him at all times and who has full control. I have a feeling he didn't "work out" in the corporate world because he can't handle someone else being in charge.
