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.

This is dark and funny.

great game i think i got all the ending but idk

OML LMFDAOO i was not expecting that- fantastic game bro!!! protagonist scared me more than the stalker. also sebastian's a real cinnamon roll cutie :)

got all endings :D that was... neat.

edit: . . . i did not have all the endings. 


I really love this!!! it was so fun to finally be a yandere in a game the only complaint I have it was turning off the censoring  was a little confusing, but other then that this game is a 10 out of 10! I really loved all the endings and the art style was so cute


how do you turn off censor, I went to preferences and didn't see it, is it under a different name?

dude i love stalkers and yanderes, them put together is so creative! this game reminds me of doki doki with the breaking the game part and the art style is pretty neat with texture and all. Pretty simple but a good way to pass the time, nicely done!

What is chibi cg and pink glasses

yandere-chan can be scarier than the stalker/pervert guy lol ,short but good in its kind of story ,art is good too

Twisted story but beautiful. :>

how do i turn the censor off


go all the way to the end of the choices and right after picking "Hype with Sebastian," press ESC, go to the preferences, and the choice will be there. You can also turn them off at the very beginning of the game if you wanna go down different endings first

those extra-endings were so perfect and I feel so awesome for unlocking them,10/10, have some things I didnt understard a 100% percent, like, who's who on what point you know? but like, that's fine, it was absolutely awesome. 


Censor?! Now that's worrying. Seems cool so I'll give it a try but if I go blind from it....I'm coming for you




Decided to give this game a play through, and I love it. Can anyone tell me if I'm missing anything? I feel like I've gone down every single route but there's a spot where after staring at a picture of  she says "I am..." and then it 'crashes' and resets, but doesn't give an "ending". Am I doing something wrong or missing something?

YANDERE CHAN? Where have I heard that before...

Looks cool.


plot twist? ON FUCKING POINT

a not so funny, but was funnier in my head story: my goal was to achieve all endings which was five and-  i didn't fucking realized that the 'hidden ending' they were talking about was the true love ending which i already achieved, and silly me didn't even bother to COUNT the endings that i already got.

Lonely ending

Yandere ending

Twisted love ending

True love ending

Continuum endng


i hate it

I love this game, the story line is ajhsbfh asjgfhjsdgfhjsdghjsdg, and the art is [insert 5 ok hand emojis here-], i just don't now how to "Break the game" ;-;

this game is great but i have two concerns; 

i dont know how to save ? i dont have the bar at the bottom most vns do i can only load ? also the menu button in the bottom right doesnt do anything when i click it.

and next; h-how do i turn off the censor... i have been looking for a while and i think im stupid


OK I FIGURED OUT THE SAVE THING JUST ESC IM DUMB i still dont know how to do censor off and have no idea how to get the secret endings

What is the meanin of transitions?

just try dowload 


Woah, that was twisted.. I was quite suprised by some of the endings! It's a nice game tho ^^

it won't work :(

I see, can you describe what exactly went wrong? The download from itch, installing, opening it, starting the game after opening it? Did you get an error report of the engine?

so i could not even play the game at all and i don't know why

so um when i downloaded it it would not let me  play i am playing on a Chromebook to

Hm, sorry. In that case I wouldn't know why you can't play the game. You did unpack the zip into a normal map and then execute the program to start, right? And you downloaded the one for your system, right? I wouldn't know if that would be pc or mac, but the pc one should work for most systems. If that didn't help, I too wouldn't know how to solve this problem. Do you experience the same problem with other ren'py games?

1 question does it work  on chromebooks

I wouldn't know, unfortunately. This is a game from two years ago, so it's quite possible that the ren'py updates to make the program chromebook compatible are not yet present in this game. If that's the case I'm afraid that this game would be inaccessible for you. Sorry.


I got the true love ending!

Gratz! Hope you enjoyed the game and will find the other endings as well!

Holy shit, I love this game! The art is so beautiful too!! I managed to break the game at the end and I'm really proud about that lmao. It was so twisted! One of the best Visual Novels I've ever played, thank you for creating such a great game <3

Thank you so much for playing and liking the game!

edit: nxjnsz i think i got it, or i might be wrong? was is the true love ending? or not?

because i've read somewhere that this game has 5 endings and i only achieved 4

Lonely ending,

Yandere ending, 

Twisted love ending

True love ending

Continuum ending

edit #2: i- im so sorry im so dumb, i just realized that i've achieved all five- jesus christ i was stressing out finding the hidden ending when i already got it-


I would like to communicate with the creators of this game, is there any way?

Ah, sorry for replying so late. Checked itch literally a day before you replied and forgot the weekly check-up after...

You can reach me on mammonn@outlook.com or PM me on Discord as Mammon#8272.




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!

Deleted post

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? 



(1 edit) (+1)

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) :

(1 edit)

Thanks for letplaying my game! Adding that Yuno Gasai special response is now worth it too! :D

P.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
