Key limits can go past 3, good quality boards take deliberate key soup to hit the point where inputs are lost.
Not necessarily, most decent keyboards have more than 3-key rollover.
Ok, thank you for correcting me on that one.

This isn't even a particularly novel input range. light and heavy are pretty clear mouse button options, roll goes to space, and super goes on F. This takes like ten seconds of thought for a layout that'll work for 99.99% of people. If he did so and thinks its just too difficult, then his opinion of his own audience is lower than my own, and if he did some mangled keyboard soup, then he's even more ignorant than I'd expected.
This is what I'm talking about - Alex considers himself a game developer, but he doesn't seem to understand things that are obvious for people, who have just played more than one game in their lives. I still can't wrap my head around the fact, that he chose to put an air jump on dash instead of, you know, jump button in Lunar Scythe. It's unintuitive as hell.

The Lunar Scythe demo looked and played better than this.
Probably because, as shitty as Lunar Scythe was, it had a clear goal in mind and Alex sorta knew what he wanted it to be. YandereSim has no such thing and is basically all over the place with it's features. Alex maybe you should fucking flesh things out and see what sticks within the lore of the game and how it flows with it's gameplay? Some games have really well developed combat sandboxes that flows beautifully in the context of the game (like Halo Combat Evolved, and basically any Zelda game) and others seem really clunky and unsure wtf they are trying to do (Fallout 3, Minecraft).

Then you have shit like this that doesn't even compare to that. Honestly if Alex wants this game to succeed, he needs to cut out all the unnecessary gimmicks and focus on the core aspects of the game.

Hell yeah I'm playing it right now and the only thing that tells you it's made for controllers is that whenever you switch directions (press A or D while holding W) it makes a janky animation, or the character simply stops and starts running again.

But of course, that game is made by people who know and care about making games, and not just fap material for a pedophile man-child virgin

It's almost a year since it was this low:

I guess people don't like the direction the game is going to. They'd prefer some content and polish, not new half-arsed features.

Alex's Patreon usually drops down with the start of a new month and mostly recovers in a few days but that's a much larger drop than usual. Give it another day or two to see if any paypigs come crawling back, then that'll be a decent indicator of how his fanbase is taking his recent posts.

Ehm, no, he put as much effort and thought into it as he puts into anything he does. Just check this.
I still think he atleast had some clear vision and execution with that as shitty as it was. I can say more for Lunar Scythe than I can for the modern state of YanSim at this point

Do you realise that it is basically the same shit? Both had 0 thought put into it, just barebones "it would be cool, if...". Even though Alex says that he had an idea for Luna, somehow he found Unity Asset that looked almost like her concepts, which leads me to believe that he had model first, you know, just like with YS - he found AOI pack and asked his friend "where can I use it?". Both are rip-offs of Alex's autistic idea of different games - Lunar Shite is the rip-off of No More Heroes, YS is a rip-off of Hitman/Persona/Bully/Natsuhiro High School/Minecraft. Both Alex used to spam /v/ with, only in YS case weebs were more than happy to suck his cock for a couple of bought assets stabbing each other. If Alex had any people stupid enough to volunteer for Lunar Scythe, it would be in the same pathetic state as YS is now. Fuck, how can you even conclude that he put more effort into it, if he made one fucking level that he didn't even try to bugtest, even though somehow it is still able to fuck your fps, recorded himself playing it and the shilled this one recording as the proof of game existing for over a year?

Its been almost a decade now, how long can he hold a grudge over that?
You do realise why Alex is still working on YS, don't you?

This honestly just compounds what we already know about him; that he wants to amount to something with his life but has no talent for his chosen """"career"""". He just goes with the first idea that envokes a positive response without thinking about whether it actually works and doesn't have the skills to make it work properly, and refuses to obtain the skills. He's continued plodding along with his chosen career out of spite, and so far has failed miserably at it.

7 years later the game sucks and he has a multitude of drama under his belt that he tried to quell with little success, at points even pissing gasoline on the flames, so they were right about him all along. He really should have seen it coming.

You show them, Alex. :suffering:

Ironically he basically could have paid out of pocket for an education with the amount of money he has received monthly over the last 5 years as well as his Tinybuild event where he basically fired a guy who was hired to help him, for outshining him within 2 weeks.

Ehm, Alex has a degree, but here is a catch - from what I've been able to piece together, he took animation, gamedesign and prototyping courses. He is bad at all of those. In fact, do you remember his chat with Mike Z? Mike outright told him that using spreadsheets and big ass update functions is a terrible idea and guess what he uses in YS? Yep, all those things! And Mike was his idol i.e. a man he had the most chances to listen to. So no, paying for education would bave not helped Alex for one simple reason - he doesn't want to learn.

BTW I've heard rumors that TB approached him only because their CEO's wife liked that trash. Has anyone heard anything about this?

That's funny, actually. In 4chan threads or in his videos he said that he realizes - it won't last forever, people are going to move on and the longer it takes the worse outcome will be and in the end he did the opposite.

Anyway, here is something I've finally taken back from a drawer and finished. Hope. you'll have a laugh.

Is it just me, or is it a slight exaggeration to call 7 years “nearly a decade”?

Yes, that’s real

He clearly didn't learn any 3D modeling either since everything is an asset flip.
Especially the main character.

They are truly a prime example where education does NOT help anything.
Its been some years since I checked up on whether or not the project is still alive and dont remember a Mike Z.

(YS should just be abandonware and finished by fans at this point or altogether scrapped. )
