Yandere Simulator is a stealth game about a young girl and her unhealthy obsession with a boy. The goal of Yandere Simulator is to stalk your crush while secretly eliminating any girl who shows any interest in him. You must get rid of other girls by matching her with another suitor, tarnish her reputation, or kill her when nobody is looking. Killing other classmates requires that you clean up after yourself; any blood, weapons, and corpses must be disposed of. The game’s challenge is to avoid any suspicion so you will need to be careful how you behave around others.
Yandere Simulator centers around Ayano Aishi, a high school girl who is obsessed with Taro Yamada. Ayano is also known as Yandere-chan and it is her life’s goal to be in a relationship with Taro or her Senpai. Within 10 in-game weeks, you must prevent other girls from piquing Senapai’s interest. This can be accomplished through different methods ranging from peaceful to violent. You will also receive aid from a broker named Info-chan. She will provide you weapons, plans, and other items in exchange for information or blackmail material.
The main obstacle of the Yandere Simulator is to keep Ayano from getting caught committing a crime or suffering a penalty. Anyone that catches Yandere-chan acting suspiciously or performing a criminal act will lose trust in her. This will also result in her losing her sanity which will hinder her ability to remain calm and stealthily carry out a crime. Game over will be declared if Taro witnesses you acting suspiciously, in an act of crime, or being apprehended. Another challenge is to manage the School Atmosphere.
Students and teachers will become more cautious and anxious about their surroundings whenever someone goes missing or is declared dead. During this time, you must bring Ayano to classes, school clubs, and other school activities to forge trusting relationships between her and her classmates. This will allow her to gain new skills and easier access to weapons. The game has a variety of weapons that include household items, sporting goods, construction tools, and other objects that can inflict harm onto other characters.
