yuri.chr is a file that's present in the
characters folder of the game directory. It is not any apparent file type but does contain a large amount of text data identifiable as Base64. When decoded into ASCII, it is an excerpt of a short story about a 19-year-old girl who brutally murders someone out of curiosity, posted online in 2015. Dan Salvato admitted to having written the story and included it in yuri.chr as an easter egg.
