He's been talking about it for years, we just didn't realize it would manifest this way.

This is the Yanchan's mom mode. This is that 1980's or whatever mode. Thats why there's no infochan, thats why your hand crafting items, thats why there's ten completely different rivals, but it still in the same school.

I wonder how he's going to react when he releases his "99% gameplay 1% story" mode, and realizes nobody really gives a fuck about the janky ass gameplay. At this point he's running a BATIM situation, where the community is more invested in the lore they built up themselves than whats actually present in the game. Detaching to a whole new mode with new chars loses that.
I think you got it! Now that you said it, I believe 100% that this is what he is doing.

He also posted this recently. Looks kinda 1980...

Oh, come one, really? I can't recall anyone giving a fuck about that mode. And what that retardation about Minecraft had to do with any of that?

Also, don't forget this.

Adding a rival would not be as simple as just spawn a student with specific appearance and adding a cutscene upon their deaths.

A rival need to feel like they are in a completely different category than other students. A rival needs to have a very carefully designed daily routine that puts them in close proximity to senpai or numerous witnesses at nearly all times.

A rival needs to have special interactions with senpai.

A rival needs their own sidestory playing out in the background.

A rival needs to have a confession cutscene under a cherry tree as well a cutscene for being rejected by senpai.

But Alex will go with a method, that he himself considered half-assed.
It would be easy to just tell a game to spawn a student with a certain name and appearance, but that would not be the same as adding true rival to the game.

And he doesn't even have a hair models! This is going to be a disaster.

He's clearly backpedaling from the minecraft thing. Remember, regardless of what he says about wanting to make things for the current fans, he's also been extremely explicit about trying to bring the gremlins into supporting him, so that they'll back his kickstarter or patreon or what have you. The Gremlin reaction was "Lol dumbass is giving up on the core concept" and then suddenly he's not doing any of that sandbox at all, and he's focusing entirely on the 10 rivals, which is totally what he was always gonna do. But he's worried that the Gremlins will point and laugh at how shit they are, and that'll become the gremlin perception of the main game.

Alex here thinks he's got it clever, being able to throw out any and all criticism about his rival experiments by segregating them into a whole separate mode. Of course, thats not how reality works at all, and the fundamental design failures in these new rivals will reflect what comes of the 'final' rivals, as Alex has shown repeatedly to not be able to learn from any of his design mistakes. All he's doing is wasting another couple years making shit thats not what he promised to deliver, to try and deflect criticism of it when he inevitably fails.

I genuinely wonder if its delusion or ignorance thats leading him to think he can just reconvince everyone who saw his shitty decisions the last seven years to suddenly come back and totally give him money. Is he deluded, avoiding the reality of the consequences of his actions? Or does he genuinely think he can just turn people around, as if the entire public perception of the project was just a score system he can increase with sufficient 'good' actions.

Alex, if you're reading this, and I bet you are, that's never going to work. At absolute BEST you could, with extreme effort, bring people from the "fuck no" camp, to the "Maybe I'll buy it on release" camp. The goodwill you burned that would convince people to publicly back the unfinished development is gone for good, its not a resource you can ever restore, for this project or any other. You've proven yourself untrustworthy with getting paid up front, and that stain will never go away. The best you can ever hope for is to convince them to give the finished product a fair shot.

You killed the golden goose, and you can't convince it to reanimate with good intentions.

No-no, both of those things were mentioned in "7 years down the drain" video - Minecraft and "I have an idea how to shove the remaining rivals into the game". My guess is he is going to add placeholder rivals and then say "Well, now you can make your own rivals with mods, isn't that genius?".

Yes. This literally what got him to this point.

Oh, come on, dude, you should know better than this by this point. There are always people who would rather eat their own dicks, than admit to being wrong. Look at Spoony's Patreon.

There was no golden goose. 4chan and 8chan(or rather /v/irgins who followed him after he left 4chan) were tolerating him only because they wanted game with their weeb fetishes and little children loved it only because some swedish nazi played it or because it's edgy. But yeah, even that opportunity Alex successfully pissed away while learning fucking nothing in the process.

If that's it, he's going to take forever removing modern technology from the school and I bet you there will be tons of bugs related to that.

If he is really only going to update his patreons for the next months, this is going to get really boring.
I remember a few years ago people were criticising him for constantly making long, rambling YouTube videos instead of making the game.
His defence was that he had to keep making those videos to keep hype high for the game - because otherwise his income streams could drop and then he wouldn't be able to work on YanSim full time.
It's hilarious to see him to a 180 on it. :story:

His approach to game devolvement at this point is "Whatever route he thinks will take the longest while raising the least amount of questions from the fanbase."

Expect him to make another long-ass video in a month or two. He never keeps those promises, since he needs those dopamine hits. Fun fact: 90% of update delays were caused not by some critical bugs, but by the fact that "video isn't ready, expect it in 27 hours".

His approach to game devolvement at this point is "Whatever route he thinks will take the longest while raising the least amount of questions from the fanbase."
Then he is doing a shit job. I doubt no one will ask "hey, you promised all 10 rivals, you've never said they are going to be in a different environment with a different protagonist".

Still dont believe that even he knows what the 100% completed vision of this game even is.
Do you know who Mike Z is to guess such things?

I was always pretty intrigued with Alex thinking he could pull off 1980s mode, since supposedly the school had a strict uniform and hairstyle policy - i.e. no crazy clown colours or novelty accessories - so all the students had the same uniform and all had black hair. But the crazy clown colours and customised uniforms are literally the only way to tell character models apart in this game.

I don't feel the 1980's vibe coming from this pic, unless if it reminds you of Ryu from Street Fighter (since the series became a thing since 1987), but go off, I guess.

Also, why would Yandere Dev add 10 more rivals to another part of Yandere Simulator when the only rival he implemented on the main game was Osana? I know he said that he'd add more rivals to the main game, but if he's gonna add the other 9 rivals to the main game in one update (after only having one rival since last September), then it'll not end well for him.

It's simple - rivals in the main game are already established, they have distinct appearances and personalities. Just giving them some half-assed routine and 2 interactions with senpai in a span of a week is going to degrade them to the same level with the rest of the students. Also, even with that little features it will take Alex at least 6 months to do that, since no one's been starting a fire under his ass after the downfall of Apedois.

He probably thinks he can add all 10 rivals to the 80's mode, since they were never established and are basically Rival1, Rival2, etc. He thinks he can throw them all together to give some sort of experience of eliminating 10 rivals and say "Hey, do you want this in the main game? Donate to my Kickstarter campaign!" However, no one gives two fucks about that mode and about Ayano's mom, who is almost absent from the story. Killing 10 rivals who were added that way will be incredibly boring, bland and tiresome. And when it happens, anyone sane will ask him "you've spent 7+ years just to give this half-assed excuse in the end?".

He is way past the point of winning that one.
