Yandere Simulator is still in development, but you can download a sandbox build that is intended for testing and debugging. Before playing the debug build, please keep the following information in mind:
- There is no way to win the game yet.
- The game is less than 50% complete.
- Most features are currently missing or unfinished.
- The debug build uses placeholder graphics and animations.
- The final game will have much better graphics and animations.
- As of now, Yandere Simulator is a PC-only game. I cannot provide you with a Mac, Linux, or Android build of the game right now. I'm sorry.
- The game is updated frequently, and some updates may contain huge bugs. The game is not guaranteed to run smoothly.
- This debug sandbox build is not representative of the final game. This build only exists for testing purposes.
- Please do not report any bugs unless you've read all of the information on the Bug Reporting page.
- If you want a smooth, bug-free experience, please wait until the game has been completed.
Yandere Simulator has a launcher that will allow you to easily download new updates for the game! The launcher is very simple to use; no tutorial should be necessary! Click below to download the launcher:
