What You Need To Know About Yandere Dev

YandereDev, is 32-year-old freelance game developer identified as Alex based in Temecula, California who developed Yandere Simulator. In April 2014, YandereDev pitched the idea for Yandere Simulator on 4chan, where it got a lot of positive feedback, so he decided to start developing it.

It is a social stealth game that borrows elements from the Hitman series of video games, but also contains “school simulation” gameplay and other elements that seek to make it quite different. The developer has also cited influence from the Persona series of games, in addition to Hitman.[

Development for Yandere Simulator began in 2014, with YandereDev releasing test builds of the game for debugging purposes.

He has regularly released updates that add elements to the game, such as the ability to poison, electrocute, and drown rivals, befriend other schoolgirls, small mini games, a town the player can bike around in, and more.

On March 1, 2017, YandereDev announced a partnership with tinyBuild that would help him with polishing and promoting the game.

Through mutual agreement, the partnership was broken up in December that year.
