While browsing YouTube, I’ve seen a certain type of video; videos that communicate interesting trivia and little-known facts by having “info cards” scroll by. Every time I saw one of those videos, I wondered, “Am I capable of creating something similar to that?” So, I decided to give it a try!
Every few days, fans of the game will e-mail me and ask me questions about various characters in the game. If someone asks a question like, “Does Borupen have a brother?” I give it some thought and then come up with an answer: “Yes, he does have a brother, and he’s the polar opposite of Borupen, very energetic and lively…” In this manner, a lot of characters have gradually developed a lot of depth and backstory, but that information usually doesn’t get shared with the Yandere Sim community, so all of that depth is kinda going to waste. I think that a “scrolling trivia cards” video might be one potential way to communicate interesting facts about the characters to the fanbase!
I created a Unity project that can produce videos like this very quickly (under 3 minutes). So, if people are interested in this type of video, I could upload them on a regular basis. It’s so fast and easy that I could spit out a video like this on a daily basis…but once per week would probably be better, so that I don’t overwhelm people with uploads (especially if we learn that most people care about this type of video).
This is my first attempt at making this type of video, so I anticipate that there will be a lot of room for improvement. Please let me know if:
- The visuals are boring
- The trivia isn’t interesting
- The music isn’t appropriate
- The cards are moving too fast, too slow, etc
- There are obvious ways to improve the production values of the video and make it more fancy and visually engaging
Putting this video together was super fun, so please let me know if you want to see more of this in the future, or if you’re simply not interested.
Thank you for following the development of Yandere Simulator!
