Alex is one of the most incompetent people in the industry. He's so damn self absorbed that he blew up the one deal that could've saved his game from it's self imposed development hell. Then there's the fact that he'd rather spend time adding meme crap that his audience is ageing out of and peddling body pillows that will probably never turn a profit.

And to think I used to believe that this game had a chance. It's just as broken today as it was 4 years ago.

As his paypigs abandon him, is Alex even sentient enough to realise what a fuckup he was to sabotage the Tinybuild deal. With that programmer the roadmap might have been a lot easier to follow.
Probably not given he never has had to be responsible for anything before given he still lives with his parents. He's probably even now justifying excuses for why he is not a lazy faggot who can't code.

I have zero inside information but I will bet real money that if we get emails/chat logs between Alex and the TinyBuild people it'll be TB's programmer being polite but firm in how poor the code is and how bad Alex's work ethic is while Alex whines about how it's his game and his vision and the programmer isn't wiling to listen to which the programmer replies something along the lines of "He's not allowing me to fix the game and keeps making demands that we can't fulfill in his timeframe."

I can't recall where I learned this but the South Park guys talked about working with THQ on Stick of Truth and mentioning they wanted a Skyrim scope game and THQ was like "Uhh, you don't have the budget and we don't have the team for a game that big." It's always best to listen to the people who will be doing the work when they tell you they need more money and more people to do what you want.

Keep in mind this is the same THQ that created the clusterfuck that was Homefront, a game many people believed would never be made because the original scope was so massive that the programmers honestly believed they would die of old age before the coding was finished.

I just saw the news about the intro cutscene and haven't been in this thread since last year, is Osana in the game yet or did he just give up
Osana not in the game yet
Alex is adamant on adding more easter eggs to the game

Considering his already existing chatlogs with Mike Z, I wouldn't be surprised.

Ah yes, go the way of low quality Steam indie developers (who later got their games removed on Steam for low quality) by responding to those that criticise the game for having low performance issues by criticising their PCs no matter how great they are.

"You need to get a job"
That's fucking rich coming from him

That's right kids his Easter egg meme game is for Adults with high end PCs only

(Even though in those youtube videos he's referencing the fps is all over the place going from 60 to 43 because I walked to a different bench)

Yknow Alex the whole gimmick of an indie game is that it's easily accessible and easy on low end machines

You elitist troglodyte

Wait did he just call Yansim "graphically intensive" :story:
The graphics on Yansim aren't bad but to call it graphically intensive is a really far stretch especially there's a lot of games that did far better in that department.

And even then you can run these graphically intensive games on 60 FPS compared with Yansim.

It's also really shabby shorthand for him to equate performance with visuals rather than computational demands. People play online games, they understand CPU-heavy processes and everybody knows games like CSGO, Planetside 2, Dwarf Fortress, etc that have a lot going on in the background that causes it to run poorly. Alex shifting the blame to "graphics", "tracking students", etc is a pretty disturbing sign that he views a lot of things in his game as hard-limitations because he doesn't understand and refuses to learn/seek help from people who know how to optimise these processes.

"Which means you first need to be old enough to work a job, which makes sense, because Yandere Sim should only be played by adults."
It always cracks me up watching him dismiss his underage demographic and insist that his game is for adults only these days considering how salty he got when Patreon (correctly) tagged his totally-not-M-rated, meme game under adult content last year. Thanks for reassuring us all that you still have no concrete idea of this game's identity despite wasting over five years of your life on it Alex.

Alpha indicates it might go through the usual optimisation on its path to completion. Alex's programming nous appears to cap out at the proof-of-concept stage.
