LOL what do you think

This is the guy who finished some unimportant minigames before he even finished the first rival, he has absolutely no concept of planning.
All would have been fine if it was some silly side project of his. Instead it’s his job that people pay him actually money to do.
“Work ethic? What’s that?”

I put my bet that Watashi no mono will be finished first and will be much better.

The last update on YT was February, but I think it's a good sign. The Developer takes the time to work on it instead of glorifying every tiny fart he put in it.

And the models aren't polished but at least they're self made and not bought store assets.

Yes.
But not this Cube World.

This Cube World:

Alex's sanity is crashing with no survivors, he will probably get obsessed and delusional about gremlins or what have you.
Alex is prone to believe his own propaganda, thus why he is not only evil, but also nuts.
Credit where it's due wol_lay is at least smart enough to not flip out on Twitter/YouTube when people troll him (if you count ddosing a store as trolling and not gay ops). Cube World was also actually good enough during its alpha 6 years ago to warrant a $20 tag while YS has never been good enough to be worth actually paying for it. That said, both games are a great example on why overprotective game devs should organize and listen to a QA team that's outside of the game's development. No single developer has enough perspective to spot-check their game's quality every step of the way, and especially not when the game is as large and ambitious as these two games are. Any dev who believes otherwise is doomed to have their games fail like YS and CW have.

honestly he is such a fucking autistic scumbag he will believe anything he says to try and keep the notion that his game and its community is alive and well. it would HONEST TO FUCKING GOD be better to see him carry out a massacre like the autistic NEET that he is and watch him utterly fail to even do that. its not that he lacks "motivation" anymore, its simply hes a delusional lazy sack of shit who will milk the cow until it is a rotting corpse.

I only ask because if it were me, my first goal would have been to prioritize Osana above all other tasks, use her as a template for all other rivals, run tests until I know her AI is stable and make tweeks to it in small increments, release a stable demo to see how players interact with Osana, then tailor the rest of the game on Osana and all other rivals moving forward.
That's what he said he planned ages ago, but his code is such spaghetti and his programming skills are such shit that he not only doesn't know how to pull this off, adding Osana probably crashes the game irredeemably.

He even has a better angle for why your MC is insane. In YS she just snaps for no raisin.

In YS there actually is a reason she's insane. Namely, that it's hereditary.

...Actually, it was better when there was no reason.
Yeah, he was afraid people wouldn't take his meme game seriously and added in a ton of supremely retarded backstory and autistic explanations for every fucking thing in the game. Even some of the OC fanfictions his tween fanbases churned out made more sense.

Even in that case. Let's say my side project is to make a cabinet out of wooden planks. What my goal would be? Well, to have a functioning cabinet. In my head I will have a plan on what to do and in what order. Alex doesn't have that. He probably has a goal of making a game, but his actions are more akin to a child, playing with Legos. "Oh, I like this, I'll put it here, oh, and this here". Come to think of it, if most of the Alexes ideas about the world come from anime and games, it could explain everything. He thinks, that if he works long and hard (from his perspective, of course) on this game, despite his "work" being unproductive as fuck, it will magically be done by itself. The worst part is that he does this shit with other people, who probably have some sort of plan, but it all gets wasted on another meme and mini-game in his trash murder simulator.

What has happened to the game in the past 2 years? I've heard of all of the leaks and learned how much of a scumbag Alex is, but it's been about 3 years since I have really gave a shit about the game. What happened?

The school map changed a bit. Other than that the game is more or less in the same state it was in at the end of 2015, except performance went from "tolerable" to "lol who needs 30fps".

Don’t worry it’s... uh... organic game desi-no... hmm. Well... you’re just a grem-wait, no that doesn’t work. Hmmm. Well, something something, persona and no more heroes are good games and he’s trying to make it more like those.

Imagine getting rich scamming kids
Tons of people do that (Jake Paul, PewDiePie, Minecraft YouTubers), but they actually produce the content they promise. YandereDev doesn't. Another thing is while communities like Roblox and Fortnite are some of the worst on the Internet, at least they are centered around the game. Alex's tween fanbase is centered around HIM instead of YanSim. It's exactly like a fucking cult. The followers are worshipping the "messiah" instead of the actual religion that drew them in the first place.

A lot of not perfectly optimized early access games get successful by being played by youtubers with beasty computers with gpus hung like a horse.

He finally added yakuza guy in a game?
I would say i liked idea of yakuza servises in game(if it was a full of stereotypes silly and over-the-top violent game, not a deep pshycho drama), but i wonder how eva will brake gamedesign feature this time
 

lolnope

His code is spaghetti but he's a money magneti!
kiwifarms.net
He literally said that even adding a single street of shops for the MC to use would delay the game significantly. And right when Osana is supposedly around the corner, too.

I feel like Alex is on a neverending cycle of finding something less important to do than Osana. Never has he actually stopped and reconsidered adding more pointless features. Truly, truly exceptional.
