As someone who occasionally scrolls through the Yandere Simulator tag for shits and gigs, I feel like there isn’t enough love for our Devpai, so I decided to make a quick post to remedy that.
Please note: I understand that there are two sides to this fandom - the side that loves Alex, and the side that’s out for his blood. I’m proudly in the former category, and this post ISN’T an invitation for you to tell me everything the guy’s ever done that could be seen as wrong in his life. Whatever your personal opinion is, our Devpai works very hard, and without him, we wouldn’t have this awesome game. Also, this isn’t a complete list of why we’re lucky to have Yandere Dev so feel free to add on.
Call me crazy, but I feel like YanDev “has” to apologise too much. Very complicated and time consuming feature not ready on time? Apology. Latest video not uploaded yet because he was too busy working on the game? Apology. Newest build so much as ten seconds late? Apology. I find this sweet but also sad. It’s great that he cares about his fanbase so much, and wants to stick to his promises, but these things happen, and I like to think that at least most of the fandom can respect that.
Dude works his ass off on the game, but still somehow finds time to implement things just to make us happy. Easter eggs, mission mode, you name it. Yandere Sim already has incredible replay value and it’s not even done yet.
YanDev often goes through social media and acknowledges work done by fans of the game. He doesn’t need to, and could easily be forgiven for not bothering, given how insane his schedule is; but somehow he finds the time for it, and that’s pretty cool. He treats fanwork like the compliment it is and is appropriately kind about it.
He’s not one of those developers who asks for input and then ignores it. You see it time and time again with people who ask others for their opinion, then disregard completely pet peeve right there. YanDev has his own view for the game and that should be respected, but whenever he puts out a poll or something, he always takes the results into account when deciding what to do next. It’s nice to be listened to.
He’s forever taking time to stop and acknowledge the rumours and controversy surrounding YanSim, and himself. It must be a total pain, but it’s very mature of him to do.
He referenced Jay in a stream (I think it was? The video was on YT), and anyone who also watches Kubz Scouts is OK in my book. Just saying.
I’m not going to pretend that he’s the most perfect human in the world because I don’t actually know him personally and therefore can’t make a judgement on what kind of human he is, but Alex is still our Devpai, and he’s still worked tirelessly to give us something very fun, so TL;DR:
the house party itself was uneventful, but the day wasnt~
etienne kissed kira, falon and titus got sad together, etienne kissed falon, falon wore a fancy glitter suit, balthazar got tiger stripes (and possibly infected etienne), falon and titus leveled up in their friendship, and raevel, kira, and etienne all sat and chilled at the fire for a bit
