got this video recommended to me
Dunno why, but I really don't like this guy.
Not only he spills the same shit that everyone had been spilling for the last decade. But he also speaks to his audience like they're a bunch of literal retards.

If you can't stand the guy for whatever reasons, Whang appears at the min 16 and shouts out the farm. @Diesel Boogaloo and @Not Based or Redpilled you guys are in the video, congrats!

I mean, is it really surprising? Alex has become the new Onision, a popular hate figure that every single youtuber has to make a video on, he's nothing new, and people should stop posting these type of videos on the thread, nothing of real value besides the Farms shoutout.

Honest question, will there be a day when this project is going to die with a whimper, with no followers whatsoever because everyone moved to games with better graphics and technology? How long is it going to take? You know, VR games are constantly better, and modern conventional games are already dwarfing Yandere Simulator, making it look like some outdated game from 15 years ago. There has to be a time in the future when Yandere Simulator will be an exotic curiosity to game journalists to probe and wrote articles about.
Good question. On the one hand, every new weeb has a chance to fall for this trash. On the other, there is hardly a way anyone can nurture his infamy for so long. In the end, Alex's dickriders will move on or join haters and the new weebs will be met with the ton of videos about YS's terrible code, design, idea itself anf Alex's terrible personality, laziness, non-existent work ethic and pedophilia. There is also a chance, that someone will try to create something similar, only good and not to just spite Alex. If that potential someone succeeds in dragging that game at least to demo version, Alex will be done, there will be literally no excuses for him.

I do honestly think that if Yansim dies in a blaze, rather than a whimper, that it will be because of this. Yansim proves there's more than enough money available for this idea to draw the attention of someone who's actually competent and capable. While the yansim clone curse is an amusing thing to joke about, the fact is that the clones have either been low skill ripoffs, or people chasing the clout of being the next yandev, and not the money of selling the next game.

And if such a viable competitor made by someone who doesn't have a waifu bodypillow up their ass inflating their ego, that will be when Yandev tries to go nuclear. Otherwise, in the absence of a competitor, it'll just go as has been speculated, slowly disappearing into the corners of the web, a dead project of a bygone era of gamedev and games media.

It's not even that, every fangame is trying to one-up or spite Alex, as if to say: "Look at me Alex I made a game and you didn't."

And it should go without saying: Something made purely out of spite will end up just as pathetic or even more so then the thing you're spiting.

There won't be a competent indie yandersim-like game. Everr. You really believe, that now after 6 years of development someone competent is going to pick the idea up? They had 6 years to do so. Yandersim isn't even that popular anymore.

"Yansim proves there's more than enough money available for this idea to draw the attention of someone who's actually competent and capable."
Wrong. He doesnt get money for the game. The game is free. He gets money for the development of the game. He is in the buisness of selling a pipe dream to stupid children.

There are reason no one competent works on a clone.

Yanderesims basic game design doesnt work. In real life, killing someone in a school is very easy. Getting away with it is impossible. Thus modeling the games mechanics after real life is retarded. Alex's demo clearly shows the difficulty balancing such a game. I don't believe throwing more money or talent at it will make it work any better at a fundamental level.

Yanderesims design is poison for indie games. Yanderesim relies on "theme park" mechanics. Its base game requires little to know skill, all fun comes from the variety of different elimination methods. But doing a elimination method is only fun exactly once. There is no variation.
Now, AAA could implement enough different elimination methods (see Hitman and look at all the voice lines and animations that game has to make killing interesting) to fill a decently long game. An indie doesnt have the time or budget for this.

Making games is hard. Making a themepark game with 50 students in 3d AS A SOLO DEV is suicide.

Here are my predictions:
Next up, kickstarter. It will fail. Yanderedev doesn't want and probably can't get a real job. So, he will continue developement till his income drops below what ever he absolutly requires to life. (If DSP is an example, this day might never come)
This is all he has in his life. He calls himself "yanderedev" ffs. Its has become his identity and with a little help of the "sunk cost fallacy" and a tendency to massivly under scope, he will continue working on it, till he can't no more. An ending to the game is not in sight. He is only at rival 1 after all.

At this point is kinda impossible to make such project, firstly; most of these "developers" are just angry weebs that think they could do better, and they think since someone as useless like Alex can use Unity, they can use it too.

Basically this:
While the yansim clone curse is an amusing thing to joke about, the fact is that the clones have either been low skill ripoffs, or people chasing the clout of being the next yandev, and not the money of selling the next game.

And if such a viable competitor made by someone who doesn't have a waifu bodypillow up their ass inflating their ego, that will be when Yandev tries to go nuclear.

And secondly; the fandom, any developer that might venture into those waters should to be prepared to the influx of retard weebs that would try to start a beef with Alex's cult, and of course the sperg of Alex himself. Nobody wants that.

There also another option: 505 makes Kickstarter succeed, they grab the money, close the Patreon, feed Alex money for 2 years as per contract, and in the meantime they realize that the whole game idea is pointless, quietly cancel the game and merely sell YS merch, without sharing a penny of profit with Alex. Cue 2023, no YS, no income, no way to get investors, third rival still not ready, President Kamala introduces incel tax.

I think that after the Kickstarter fails, he'll pretend to work on Amai for 6-12 months before he just stops.

I feel it's reasonably safe to assume that at this point 505 has fucked off to greener and more productive pastures and has nothing to do with Alex anymore. We'll know for certain sometime next year.

I feel like we can cross this possibility now. He said, it will go like this - when Osana is added and demo is made, Kickstarter launches, then some competent people make other rivals and waste their time trying to polish a turd. What do we see now? Osana is there, I guess, demo is done, from the Alex's point of view, of course, but no announcement and he talks about working on other rival alone with the group of volunteers. Something probably has changed.

Yes, that's why I wasn't talking about a clone, but "something similar". Either 100% anime parody game or just non-violent social simulator, where you try to keep girls away from senpai. People will play it and realize "hey, even without all this blood and gore it's good and it's finished".

If DSP is an example, this day might never come
Ehm, no, these are completely different things, here is why - despite being incredibly bad at games and streaming as a whole, DSP was consistent in the majority of cases. He had some broken promises, but in the end those people left, but they were replaced by people, who'd never cared. If he promised to stream 6 days a week for a year and then streamed 3 or 4 a week instead, then yes, he would be like Alex. And of course, Phil is called a Pigroach for a reason - he is disgusting, but completely unkillable, when Alex managed to sink his Patreon with his own video. Also, keep in mind, that DSP is literally dancing monkey, so he can get money from his fans AND haters, when Alex's haters would rather raid his discord and make videos about his spaghetti code.

I didn't want to write about "clone" myself because it's a cursed trope. But the possibility of something similar still exist in the future. Take Among Us, make it anime school and with 2030's technology VR. Yandere Simulator would be forgotten instantly.

Archive everything. Use archival tools to preserve content forever. Upload directly to posts where applicable.

Something saved that is useless is fine. Real archives save plenty of useless information (whether the information is truly useless or just not useful at the moment is another debate).

Something useful lost because someone thought it might not be important is against our very principles.

Besides, a lot of these bandwagoners may be future cows themselves. We already had Sleuth out himself as a total idiot.

Y'know what? Fair point.

But, is there a way we could keep these videos to their own separate places? Someone posting a video like the one I quoted is inevitably gonna cause a small discussion, disrupting the more important stuff. Kind of like how YanSim fangames got their own board, could something like that happen to these videos?

Well, I took the break from Farms and indulged myself into playing last two Persona games. And it safes to say that Alex is even worse at stealing that you could imagine.
First of all, I can already predict that Alex gona ripoff P5 plot points. Mostly because Alex spitted too much info already, plus Principals phone conversation at the end of the demo really reminds me of scenes with Special Investigations Unit Director in P5 with same "Just as planned" style of phone conversation. But nothing interesting will happen till the very end, when it's discovered that Highschool is somehow built in order to set in motion autistic plan of powergrab for Saikou family.
Than he took all the unique game aspects, like going through calendar days, to astablish the deadlinge and let player do whatever he wants inbetween the main meat of the gameplay, but problem is, currently the only reason for calendar days mechanics is to halt the murder stealth sim with RPG stat grind and going through railroad ways of ellimination, which kinda kills the purpouse of making a killer sim where you are just left with enemy to kill and tools to do so in different ways. The only fun you can have from it is to follow the Lord British Postualte and exploit the shit out of the game to secure the kill on the first day.
Not to mention that whole, school life aspect that probably is the main reason why Yandev keeps with this shit doesn't suite the main character, and execution overall sucks, if someone like Ayano interracts with people solely to get something and doesn't understand their feelings, why would player, who is immeresed into the role, give a fuck. At least Persona protags cared about people they hanged out with.

Also, Alex has done nothing of importance since Osana's release. This thread is at a standstill too.
He's still managed to annoy someone, regardless. I don't know if this has been mentioned at all, let me know if it has, but he made this post on Reddit at the start of the month
1606167627616.png


People got angry because that Empress he randomly Googled for his "Aishis are everywhere in human history and do the bad things" assassination scenario was brutally murdered by the Japanese and her death apparently had long-term consequences for Korea. He edited the post to "apologise", but evidently after ignoring it for a couple of weeks because he himself admits that he assumed trolls were pranking him.
