I thought it would be like a 'NOBODY WILL TAKE ME ALIVE' sort of situation.
Nah. That would have risked a possible fun gameplay moment. A "hey if I'm gonna lose, might as well go down with a bang" or a way to take anger out on losing if you keep messing up by giving a freebie to kill everyone, no matter how invincible. Even Taro. Still lose. But at least it makes losing not as terrible and can feed the murder hungry players.
 
Newbie and used to be Yan-Dev fanhere, I've been reading this snowballing cluster-fuck since the beginning. And i feel stupid because not only did I blindly defend this game's omega-pasta code, but I also Dick-rode this Human paper-cut Dev. Thanks to this thread i saw the error of my ways and now I can say for sure that, Alex is a fucking phenomenon of lazy. It took five year's to put the first rival, a red shirt developer could've done that in a few months best and 1 year at worse, your sense of pacing is garbage dude . I could say more but I'm going to wait for the right time. P.S. Alex i genuinely thought you would make a interesting game and won't be a bad person but reality is cruel, and I have more of a chance of winning the lottery every day than you learning from your mistakes and being a good Dev.

Don't feel stupid. You're smart enough to stop bouncing on his dick and figure out what's really going on, that's all that matters. Can't say the same for Cleveland Rock or any of his other fans.

This is apparently his Patreon post in March 2020:

Although it's hilarious seeing him saying "'Anti-YandereDev' climate", on one hand I can understand why given he has a rise in notoriety and the "Consume the Cum Chalice" meme is not helping him either, but on the other hand, he still has his underaged fans to support him, as proven by the unlisted video.

Good job, Alex, now they know you're affected.

Which is fucking dumb, if we wanted that we could go back to a build from three years ago.
Wait, he implemented the ability before? Given that virtually nothing has changed in 3 years, why can't he just revert to the earlier build, or at least disable whatever chunk of code changed that from happening? This sounds like a 30 minute fix for 3 years of work.

No, his alpha build never had any of this "million things you have to do to avoid being caught" thing for years, Students walked into school staring at their phones and you could just stab them one after the other until there was a pile of bodies in front of the doors. A bit longer than three years, more like 2016-2017-ish

Good news! Yandere-Chan is finally starring in a finished game! No, it's not Yandere Simualtor.

She's been added as a character to a shitty gacha style mobile anime porn game. (Tweet is NSFW)

Good to know instead of working on Osana he's been busy adding his main character to YET ANOTHER Porn Game.

(Previously, he had his character added to Crush Crush. He also attempted to have her added to a Strip Poker style game)

But hey, I guess Alex now has more underage fap material of his characters.

Once again, I have to ask who is even the target audience of Yandere Simulator. He doesn't want the target audience to be underaged kids because of COPPA guidelines and he even discourages it (and this NSFW shitty gacha game isn't helping either). I would say the aforementioned "hardcore gaming indie anime fans" but even then once again, way too niche and that hentai game crossover is gonna greatly decrease that niche either.

At least Alex might get some funding from this collaboration.

How many is that now? Three? Wouldn't this still be considered cp even though she's fictional? I know Alex swears up and down that every single character is 18+, but anyone with a quarter of a brain can tell that's bullshit.

Hardcore gaming indie anime fans have thousands of finished Japanese indie games with good gameplay and decent story to play, they don't need to play some unfinished incoherent knockoff that looks like designed by a 10-yo weeb who doesn't know yet what Japan is. Fuck, even Chinese mobile gachas look more Japanese than Yansim and weebs gladly spend their bux for waifu jpgs in Azur Lane.

EDIT:

Given the setting, Ayano is either 15 or 16. The game starts in April, and that's the age of high school 1st and 2nd year students (she can't be 3rd year, as then there would be no senpais for her).
Also, given her birthday is April 1st, she is literally the youngest in her class (were she born a day later, she would go to school one year later, as April 2nd is the cutoff date). So she isn't "16 years and some months" old. She's 16 years and few days old, tops. (Of course, the birthdate can change, but this won't change much)

I can only assume he's trying to target men who are like him, knee deep into animu games and waifu culture, but I imagine most of them are indeed just playing azur lane or fate grand order and so on and wouldn't waste their time on a knockoff like this. Meanwhile last time I saw a Yandere simulator fan in the wild it was a 15-year-old with he/she/they pronouns.

Pretty much. Ignoring the fact that his game is still jank as fuck to the point where playing Gary's Mod yields more consistency (and Gary's Mod can actually be fun), everything he produces is just so goddamn boring. Were this game actually completed, he'd need to redesign a lot of the characters if he wanted a shot at attracting attention as they suck both visually and personality wise. Azur Lane has a lot of outrageous designs to compensate for their one-note personality. VA11 Hall-A has very mundane designs, but the characters possess a lot of depth that actually gets you interested in who they are.

Not to downplay writing/design ability because it's crucial in the creation process and requires a lot of practice, but conceptualization like what I just spoke about isn't that hard. At the very least being able to peer at something and realize it's fucking boring because it can be described in little under half a sentence.

Even to his target audience there's just literally zero reason to play his game. In fact, it's less than worthless because time spent on that game is time you could be spending on others that are far more well-developed.

According to the Wiki she's 17 (Archive)

Its some sort of cram school meant to catch you up before going to uni, or was that for a bit when there was a lot more questions being asked about the age.

Yeah, I'm not buying any of that.

If she's 17, then at 8:30am on workdays in April she should be at her highschool, not at a cram school. And if this is a prep school for people who failed their first uni exams, then 1. everyone would be 18+, not 17; 2. students wouldn't be grouped into years; 3. most likely there would be no uniforms. Academi High School looks like a stereotypical anime highschool, there's no denying that.

Besides, the wiki you linked to is some kid's pet project and is neither an official wiki nor the main YS fandom wiki, which is at https://yandere-simulator.fandom.com (and it says that Ayano is in class 2-1, which I suppose establishes her as a 16-year-old).

Anyway, you'll never get an official age from Alex, as first this would require him to admit the game is all about minors, and second he's incapable of creating a self-consistent timeline for the game.

I had to go WAY back to find it but finally got a snippet of it from this:
Reddit link (Archive)
He may not have gone with it but he was imagining it as a post high-school thing so students could enact in escapism and he'd have his safe 18-20 range instead.
