Happy birthday, Alex Your 32nd, huh? Well, I guess we can look back on the six years from when you were 27 to when you're 32 now.
If Osana really is implemented into the game, it will have taken 6 years to get to this point - that's not something to be proud of, Alex.

I'm almost entirely sure that this may not be the case, but is YandereDev one of the lolcows with nearly 2000 pages? And is it possible that we'll hit 2000 pages before the end of 2020?
There has been 37,820 posts from the 04/10/2016 (10//042016 for UK) till today, 06/30/2020 (30/06/2020). This translates to 1543 days of this thread being up.
Assuming a constant average post rate, there's 24 posts a day. For it to be 2000 pages, there needs to be 39981 posts in this thread. So there needs to be 2161 new posts.
Going by the average post rate, we would get to page 2000 in 90 days, this is half as much time as the year has left, so we'll definitely get there.

Though this is a lazy estimate as I don't have the motivation to calculate daily post rates.

We'll be there by the end of July if he releases Hate & Shame 2 and/or Osana by the end of the week.

At least MikeZ has a better work ethic than Yanderedev, with regards to the tweet above.

At least Mike Z HAS a work ethic. Or at least, one that lets him do something other than uploading overly long YouTube videos with repetitive information, which is what will probably happen tomorrow.

Dude is just 32? Holy cow, I would have guessed 37+ based on recent pics. What drugs is he on?

Wow! For once when Alex is talking about why Osana isn't out yet in a public medium he didn't mention the "trolls" or the "haters." Maybe it's finally gotten through his thick lolcow skull that REE-ing at the "gremlins" and blaming others for your incompetence only makes you look even worse?

EDIT - I'm an idiot, he linked his Valentine's suicide day Tweet in the blog post

For the past few years, there was always something else that took priority over Osana; putting more students in the school, making the students react to blood, implementing a save/load feature, etc.
Yeah sure dude, before the game had a functional save/load feature you were writing paragraphs of lore about an in-game anime ripoff of Madoka.

And just like that Alex continues to make a fool of himself and with these new "student names" and "nicknames" proves he doesn't have an original thought in his body and finally made his ripping off blatant.
I'm not really active in this thread, but that is not new at all. It must've been at least two years since he first talked about his Scooby Doo ripoffs (who I have no idea what they're doing in the game to begin with), or even more.

Fixed bug that prevented long sharp weapons from spilling blood.
This wasn't even a bug, it was a logical error that resulted from a feature Alex implemented on purpose.

From the June 15th Update

Short weapons (like knives) can be concealed, so that the player can transport weapons in secrecy. However, long weapons (like baseball bats) cannot be concealed. For years, this meant that long weapons were objectively inferior to short weapons, and that there was no reason to use long weapons.

To give the player incentive to use more than one weapon type, long weapons were given an advantage; victims killed by a long weapon would not leave blood pools. However, this made long weapons too overpowered; it removed all incentive to use short weapons.

To balance the advantages/disadvantages of both weapon times, non-concealable weapons are now 5x more suspicious than concealable weapons; this means that students will notice you carrying long weapons and become alarmed 5x as quickly. This means that the player needs to be very careful and stealthy when carrying around a long weapon, or else their reputation will get annihilated quickly.
Did he just forget he implemented this, or did he realize how stupid the idea of a katana not leaving a pool of blood behind was, changed it back to how it used to work, and try to play it off like it was a bug?

What always confused me about Alex's code is that he doesn't seem to understand the SOLID principles of object-oriented programming, especially the single-responsibility principle.
That gigantic update function can be trimmed down quite a bit (in terms of line count) by defining the statements that should be executed for each circumstance as their own function and then just calling it where it "used to be" in the actual update function. Right now the update function holds all the information necessary to make the students act the way he wants them to, but he really should be breaking it down into separate functions that each have one sole purpose. It would make it a lot easier for him to debug his code. They teach this shit in introduction to programming classes in college, so why does he not know this?
