So, you're interested in making your experience in Yandere Simulator even better? Well, for now, the developer is focused on fixing bugs and adding the remaining features before considering the demo “complete.” The only thing left after that is adding the other rivals. Yandere-chan is determined to do whatever it takes to eliminate her competition. When it's ready, your codespace will be available for you to use.
Now, let's talk about some improvements that have been made. One issue that has been bothering the developer for a while is the character models' mouths. To address this, a script has been written to make the characters' mouth blendshapes open and close based on the waveform of an audio clip. Another aspect that needed attention was the characters' necks. By updating the character models, the developer had the chance to fix various issues like poor geometry and inconsistent texel density. Hopefully, that makes more sense now.
But why not just create completely new character models with a different art style? Well, the game has had an established art style for years, and it wouldn't make sense to suddenly change it. Instead, the decision was made to extensively modify the current models and improve them significantly. This way, the improvements align with the existing art style. It's important to consider how much the characters' proportions can be altered before causing problems. This is a delicate balance that needs to be maintained.
Making changes to character models can be quite inconvenient. Any alteration made to one model must also be made to every other model wearing different clothes. It's a meticulous process, but it's necessary to maintain consistency throughout the game.
In Yandere Simulator, your mission is to eliminate a new girl each week before Friday arrives. This way, you can secure your crush without any competition. It's a challenging task, but it's also an exciting and immersive experience.
