Wow, this is taking stalking or obsession of a fictional person in love to a new level. I wonder what anime of this would be like.

It's "senpai", not "sempai". :/

Both are acceptable romanizations of the word.

There's an older Romanization convention wherein non-terminal "ん" would be transliterated as "m," but still pronounced as "n." Terminal "ん" would still be transliterated as "n."

I saw this game on pewdiepie's channel on youtube and was totally freaked out.

Honestly?? It would just be like future diary, without the supernatural element.

I wonder if the more insane the yandere character becomes, the stronger she gets (Yuno Gasai from Future Diary seemed to get more strong/precise as time went by).

p.s. I also wonder if they rivals are females, maybe the yandere can gain the title "nutcracker" Laughing

Curious to see if they actually plan on doing some character development for this girl. As of right now she seems like a Michael Myers-esque blank void, but then again the game isn't finished yet.

Also anticipating if (or how) the character designs will be changed before it's released.

The guy's voice creeps me out. He pauses way too often in a sinister way.

Sometimes, though, a game is deliberately designed to have its player character be a void with a few traits necessary to get the plot going and nothing more. The Pokémon games are a good example of this.

I'm not sure if this game's existence is creepy as hell or just hilarious. Probably both.

"Sem-pie" is close to the way the Japanese pronounce "senpai". So I would spell it "sempai" too.
