I think the journey changes what the destination means to you. only speaking for my experience here, but if I hadn't spent a few years keeping track of KS and watching the dev blog like a hawk (or like a boss, or maybe like a boss hawk), the game and characters wouldn't matter as much to me. but it's like now, I've watched all this stuff happen, I've read a ton of speculation, I've posted here and talked up the game to friends. people still look at me weird when I tell them the premise, but who cares.
it's more than just another game I'm keeping track of.
and I think I'll appreciate the game more when it's done 'cause I've been here for the journey, y'know? after reading alllll the shit the devs have been through (or just the stuff they shared with us), the whole thing is more important to me, 'cause I know what went on behind it. and that's awesome.

amazing how preference changes now that the game's actually out.
Akira/Hanako for the win. Meiko/Nurse for even more win. Miki/Misha for win that goes BEYOND THE IMPOSSIBLE.
