Re: The Music of Katawa Shoujo

Yeah, it's really just an experience that all elements are contributing to, I think you're right.

PS, I found this.

Re: Sisterhood (Hanako Epilogue) (Completed)

Welp. Here it is. At least one of the reasons I actually registered on here, so's I could say something about it. I find constructive criticism is more or less my way of speaking, but I hope that the emphasis here will be on the 'constructive' part. First off, I will go ahead and echo everyone else ...

Re: Katawa Shoujo, my first VN....

Yeah, I wasn't really aware of the existence of such a thing as a VN before I played Katawa Shoujo. It kind of blew my mind how unexpectedly effective it ended up being at just telling a story in ways that books and film just can't. I started out wanting to try Hanako's route. She really interested ...

Re: Finally giving KS a chance

I think it's a shame you didn't manage to get any further than the second decision. I'd say you haven't really ended up giving it a chance just yet.

Curious to hear the threadposter's thoughts on what other people are saying.

The Music of Katawa Shoujo

My guess is there's a thread for this somewhere already, but I'd also guess that it's well buried, and I want to start a new discussion topic anyway. As I think back on the experience of Katawa Shoujo, I'm finding myself more and more inclined to think that Nicol Amarfi's music was probably the most...

Re: Hanako inspired song

Yeah, I think it fits all right. It seems like you really tried to make something that works for her, and I think you succeeded.

For a Thousand Years

It's just an AMV.
But, it's the only good KS AMV I was able to find on Youtube, so I thought I'd share it. The song's lyrics are kind of dumb or weird, but I think it's nice all the same.

Re: Staggering Harmony - OCs, Art, and Q&A (Updated 1/28/13)

The fanart is decent for what it is, I'd say. I'm wary of OCs for something like Katawa Shoujo, though, and am severely tempted to write them off as unnecessary and shoehorned in almost on sight. I see a lot of people make OCs from the Design your character thread and maybe give just some informati...

Re: Thoughts on the H-scenes?

Pfeh. I don't see why it can't be called both. On a purely literal basis, I could make a case for both. If anything, I'd think that being able to be called a 'dating sim' would be a point of pride for Katawa Shoujo-- it's evidence that such a thing as a good dating sim can, in fact, exist. (I would...

Re: jesse does katawa shoujo!

Considering that most mainstream game devs these days more or less tiptoe around their audience like we're made of china, I found such a punch in the face quite refreshing. I wasn't aware there was any tiptoeing. :lol: It has to do with things like obvious-ass tutorialish stuff for supposedly-adult...

Re: Thoughts on the H-scenes?

Did you just call KS a dating sim? :lol: Run... You're saying it's not? I don't particularly care either way but there are those around who will fight you to the death over the distinction between a romantically-inclined VN and a dating sim . :lol: Pfeh. I don't see why it can't be called both. On ...

Re: What scene made you "cry" the most

Your definition of manliness seems to be confused. This is why the term "manly tears" is only ever seriously used by people who haven't a shred of manliness. They're just unmanly and confused. And weak. And idiots. Incidentally, I don't like those people. :lol: That may certainly be the case. It do...

Re: Thoughts on the H-scenes?

I liked that the sex scenes weren't there strictly for the purpose of being, to use Xanatos' word, 'fappable' (as they are in-- let's be honest-- most similar games. At least the ones that I've seen). I totally appreciate that, because it's so easy to let that be the mindless goal of stupid dating ...
