A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Yandere-chan is just an ordinary girl with ordinary hobbies, ordinary friends, ordinary problems, and one not-so-ordinary crush. She has feelings for the man standing in her street --not a stalker-- who's just loitering about --definitely not a stalker-- and who occasionally tries to look through her window --most definitely not a stalker--. But Yandere-chan doesn't know who this mysterious man is, why he's standing there and if he might be interested in her as well. Should she approach him and confess her feelings to him? Or should she keep her feelings hidden to avoid a heart-break?
A ±15.000 word story, rated PEGI13 as long as censor is kept on, rated M if you dare to turn it off. Made by me (writer&project leader), Yuukicrosspudding (sprite artist), Dark Sentinel (programmer), Jujube (GUI), Bokchois (CG artist), Banannasquid (BG artist).
Walkthrough: As this might be a bit difficult to find without knowing it exists, there is a second story to be unlocked. You've just got to... break the game.

Well I went through them all.
Boy I abused the load/save button.
Did Viv norm routes,
Did the Viv Yandere routes
Did the I AM VIVDERE routes
And did as many as I could with glasses on/glasses off just to see the differences.
Have to say, I'm a little disappointed there was no hanky panky time with the stalker even in the Vivdere routes towards the end :< So sad.
But it was fun! I have to say though, I spent 15 scrolling through all the files trying to figure out how to "break the game" without breaking it for real only to realize it fixes/breaks itself essentially.
Hi Artemis, glad to hear you liked the game so much that you kept trying until you found all the endings on your own. :D
If you were referring to +18 content, I don't really do that and our sprite and CG artists probably would've refused the project if I had. And this project was part of the NaNoRenO jam, meaning the game was made within one month, so we never really had the timetable to create the assets required for such scenes regardless. So sorry, but none of that.
Once again, thank you so much for playing and liking the game!
LMAO good game!
First of all: I LOVE this game, it's really fun and I love how twisted Yandere-chan gets. ヽ(o♡o)/
However, I do have a problem: So I did a playthrough months ago (July, I think?), "broke" the game to get the special endings, etc. Fast forward to now in November, I rediscover this game in my game folder and thought "Hey, this was a pretty good game, I wanna play it again, from the beginning." So I downloaded a new game and opened it up, only to have it still be "broken" and remember my old save files. I went "ok, that's weird, considering this is an entirely new game file, but whatever. Guess I'll delete this one and the original and download a third game." Even after deleting the original, every time I open up a new game, it's still "broken". Is there a way around this? I really want to start anew, but I can't do it. ;~;
Hi, thank you so much for liking it sooo much that you want to replay it! :D
If you want to reset the game, try skipping through the broken endings (press ctrl to skip, you can change skipping from seen to all in preferences) You don't need to see them all, just reach the last one in a similar way to how you reached the part where you could chat with Sebastian. Once you reach that ending, the game should un break itself in a similar way to how it got 'broken' in the first place, allowing you to start anew.
If that doesn't help, feel free to post again and see if you can access the .rpy files. I'll tell you how to manually set the persistents back to the starting position.
If you found out that Vivienne isn't actually Vivienne, I assume that you did find the 'second story' which is essentially the first endings minus the illusion of Vivienne being cute and innocent. If not, start a new game once the main menu CG and music changes to find 3-4 endings or so. Have you seen the scene where she hid in the closet etc.?
Anyway, thank you for playing the game and for liking it!
Umm, so any sexual content?
In the beginning when I started playing, I was super scared for an hour. Something about the game, and the stalker, and the fact that Yandere-chan idolized her stalker just put me on edge. Idk man maybe its because im also playing it super late at night with my window opened too hahaha. I got so creeped out that I had to turn on happy music so I could focus on the game and not get too scared lmfao. But! This game, other than creeping me out, was actually kinda fun! I don't think I've found all the endings (because i dont know what the tv or lonely ending are) but ive so far gotten the one where she sedates senpai, where she ends up with sebastian, where she kills all of senpais victims and takes care of his baby, and the hidden ending. I'm currently playing and i restarted the game and inputted my name as Vivienne. I didnt think it would change much, but to my surprise it opened up a new route! All in all, this game was a nice balance of suspense and humor. It made me laugh as much as it scared me, which was nice! I like the idea of this game because I haven't come across a game with this same theme (at least nothing this hardcore involving a stalker) so this was a nice new thing for me!
I also feel like I'm missing a big chunk of something because I always forget what yandere is and I get it mixed up with another japanese term i cant think of rn....
But! keep up the good work! i can see you guys producing even funnier content in the future, and who knows, maybe a sebastian spin off? or maybe a serious romance vn showcasing sebastian falling for vivienne? you know, minus yandere chan killing her and stuff!
ok im just babbling at this point, but seriously, keep up your good work and ill be anticipating whatever new projects you guys set out!! sending love xoxo sending love
also sorry if some of this doesnt make sense lmfao its one am and my tired mind doesnt know what is what rn
Hi, thank you so much for playing and reviewing. Calling her Vivienne didn't actually trigger second story, you could've called her anything and she would've ignored you and called herself Vivienne. The new stuff opens up after you saw the hidden end and start a new game. If you want to see the endings you missed, if you played through the second story and reached the last ending, or if you just open a save file from before finding the hidden ending, you can get back to the first story and pick the two options you haven't picked yet. (Look at senpai and watch tv)
I'm trying to get the hidden endings, but I think I screwed it up. I turned pink glasses, and now I can't turn them on or off, unfortunately, and I don't really know what to do with that.
If you go to the choice of whether to Hype with Sebastian or not, scroll back twice and you'll hit an invisible persistent that will resolve the issue. Otherwise, you can also start a new game to solve it. When arriving at the choice of whether to Hype or not, have the pink glasses turned ON, and turn them OFF after picking the choice.
Idek how to play the downloaded game, I know stupid of me.
After you've downloaded the .zip file, open it and try to find the executable. This is not yet the logo of the game but instead the standard ren'py logo of a redheaded girl with a yellow snake. When you click on it, the computer will ask you in which map to unpack the .zip file. Let it unzip and once it's done the .zip file can be thrown away. In the new open game folder, click the same option as before (which has now changed it's logo) to start the game. Depending on your computer, starting the game may take a while but it's smooth and lag-free sailing from there on out. Pretty much always will your computer first ask you if you're sure, because it cannot determine if the file is safe (it is).
This technique should work for starting all Ren'py games.
Hey played your game and loved it, really original story and cool art
Here´s my gameplay (1of 3 EP) :
Thanks for letplaying my game! Adding that Yuno Gasai special response is now worth it too! :DP.S. There are 5 endings that are easy to find, one of which you've already seen. There are also four endings that are harder to find, because it will require you to find a way to break the pink glasses function (see preferences). See other comments or ask me if you can't figure it out.
Well in my lets play i got 2 different ending because it was really fun, but i only got like 3 ep in the series so i had to pick the ones thought it would be better in my opinion, but im still playing the game to get the other endings in the future.....when i have free time....god i really need to get a personal life
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, this game is amazing! I got all the endings (including the hidden ending, though I was a bit confused on how to get it at first). I literally said "what the fuck" during the "true" ending cause of "Senpai's" sudden turn of preference, one of my favorite endings to be honest. After the True Ending I thought about an odd ending: what if Sebastian-Kun was yandere too and killed Yandere-Chan when she tried to save him from Robert?
Thank you so much! (P.S. have you gotten all the hidden endings by starting a new game after seeing the True end?) Sebastian being a mandere? That's a fun idea! Not one I know how to do, but a funny idea nonetheless.
I can't access the hidden ending. :( I got all but it. I misread how to, and tried disabling the censor before I clicked to go Sebastian's route, then green text said there was an error basically so I had to switch it, so I switched it back on. But, when I got to the end of the route, there was a giant X on the censor option >-< And no matter what I do it won't go away. So I don't know what to do, please help? I love the game so much so I really wanting to see the True Ending.
Thanks you for liking my game enough to stick around for the hidden endings. (That's right, there's more than one. ;) ) When you arrive at the True love end, put your pink glasses ON, choose the option of chatting with Seb because you'll indeed won't be allowed to advance any further, then take the pink glasses OFF again. It'll take you to the hidden story from there. The big X will be there to prevent you from changing the censorship after you reached the route split, but until then you can change it. The problem you might experience is that this X unfortunately doesn't reset between loading files. You can resolve this by starting a new game (and hold in Ctrl to auto-skip) or go to the question of whether to Hype with Sebastian and scroll back two texts.
Hopefully you'll find it this time. Another thing we unfortunately couldn't change properly is that the main menu will not change right away, the main menu theme will be different only if you were to start the program again or got one ending rather than right away. Do start a new game though for all the last content!
Just going to mention this: Bitdefender is blocking your executable as a potential threat. I doubt you have any malicious software in the game, but wanted to inform you.
Thanks for the tip. There are quite a few programs that consider ren'py games a possible threat because these tend to be bare-bones in terms of certification. In 99% of the cases you may ignore this because it stems from the developers (myself included) not knowing where and how to change these certificates.
Oh man! This was brilliant :D I got the Yandere end first, and I went from totally creeped out to laughing my socks off!
It's so awesome, can't wait to get the other endings now! (Also, I love the MC's jacket, very pretty).
WOW. I love this game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IT GETS EVEN BETTER, HOW EVER????
Like, I found quickly the first endings (the Yandere ending, the Lonely one and that other one with the baby & the tv one), and was like: cool, cute, but the game didn't really stuck with me? Maybe because Mr golden eyes was very "URGGGHH" to me from the start...
THENSebastian, you sweet pea!
... I found the True Love end and the True end... And lemme say, I'm beyond amazed.
I mean, I was so confused when it started to deviate, because what? Two of them? Wasn't the creep...
And then I was all "Holy fuck, I get it. Good gods was I slow, but DAMN I get it!"
This game is so good. So short, but so good!
Thank you so much for sharing it, and I wonder... Can you tell us more of what became of poor Sebastian's fate? Did he "learn to love" MC, if only for self-preservation? Does she hurt him? Was here ever a Creeper Mc Creeper at all?
Thank you so much for liking it! About Sebastian, I'll leave that to your imagination. I'd say that the police would eventually rescue him, Yandere-chan is meticulous to a degree but it's only a matter of an unforeseen event before he'd manage to escape or alert anyone. But a story of Stockholm Syndrome love might also be what'd happen. Mr. McCreeper did exist, stalking the real Vivienne.
Hey, this game seemed way too fun to not try out! Though I wound up getting silly w/ it, it really was enjoyable.
Yay, a letsplay! Thank you for making my game your 100subs video (suck on it, Dora). Very amusing, but I was soooo sad when you didn't pick the 'Approach Senpai' option after mentioning birdwatching because that's actually in that ending. :(
So best game or best game ever? I had waaay too much fun playing this game, going from concerned to creeped out to extremly impressed with that secret ending, great job.
If there is a final real ending I can't find it. Typing in different names didn't change anything in neither "worlds", and I feel like I'm missing a conclusion to the overall story. If anyone can give me a hint it would be appriciated.
When you arrive at the True love end, turn censor OFF, choose the option of chatting with Seb, turn back ON again. It'll take you to the hidden story from there. If you've already got that one, you've seen everything.
Just played this, and it's pretty good! I managed to get all of the endings. The way you made this was just genius!
I hope there aren't any jumpscares in this T^T
Don't worry, there aren't any. Jumpscares are cheap tricks that don't actually add anything of value.
Hi! How long is it in minutes/hours? :)
Give and take two or three depending on your reading speed and if you find the hidden section easily.
Loving the game, but I'm struggling to get the hidden ending, what am I missing? Thanks :)
There a more detailed Walkthrough on Lemmasoft here:https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=...
But the simplest explanation: When you arrive at the True love end, turn censor OFF, choose the option of chatting with Seb, turn back ON again. It'll take you to the hidden story from there.
i was confused by the end lol . really want to know what happened next :D
Oh, a letsplay! Yay! Thank you for reading it out loud, the trouble you had with phrasing here and there will help me improve my grammar for the reader's pleasure in projects to come.
Absolutely amazing. It was hilarious and creepy, and I was very happy to see the happy ending. That part with the mace cracked me up. Loved it.
What can I say, I'm very unoriginal with names. :) Although she does get her own name eventually, and if you don't like the name you can change it.
'You realize Yandere-dev didn't coin the term "Yandere", right? Anyway, Ayano Aishi's story is completely different to this one's.
OMG, enjoyed the game so much! The story, style and dialogs are amazing! It's interesting how you can mess with the settings practically any time you want. :)
Thank you, dear author, for your work and good luck for anyone who will try to do it to the true ending!
p.s. hidden things always seem to capture me ;) and this one is siiick
p.p.s. miss V. is so adventurous
