Re: Katawa Shoujo Will be Released on January 4th, 2012

"Hey, I haven't checked the KS blog in a while. I wonder if they have a release date yet?"

Well, fuck yes. Fuck fucking yes.

Re: About the game's erotica...

It'll be interesting to see Hisao's reaction and a full, unobstructed view of far the burns actually do cover. For all we know, she could be totally charred between the legs, and have one breast completely fried over when the sex scene comes along. Speaking of, was it ever said how the burns actual...

Re: Emi + Phantom limbs =

Oh, I remember this from my Psychology courses. Yeah, this is basically how it works: When you're born, your brain is unformed. It's very loosely organized -- it can be considered, in fact, only animal if even that. During your years of development, certain pathways between neurons are used more oft...

Re: Misha's disabillity?

The big hints I've seen are that she gets vertigo on the stairs, and that she does sign-language to herself even when she doesn't need to talk to Shiichan. This suggests something in the brain. Perhaps she suffered a stroke at some point, and has thin or weak blood vessels in the brain. Whatever th...

Re: If you *actually have* a physical disability, what is it?

Marfan syndrome. Nothing too serious; properly treated nowadays it's almost as if you're just a little tall and skinny with bad eyesight. I lucked out, too; no developmental deficiencies. All the same it's not fun to have because heavy exercise poses a threat of making my aorta decide it wants to br...

Re: Is katawa Shoujo the gateway drug of visual novels?

Think about how generic and limited, say, rock and roll was back in the '50s when it was still a niche genre. A lot of it still sucks (and a lot of the older stuff had its merits), but at least now people know how to use more than the same four-chord blues progression for every song. Now, your forg...

Re: which KS girl do you think would put out the easiest?

I always thought Lilly should be a bit silly Someone who's better at poems than I should turn this into a limerick, and rhyme "Lilly" with "willy." Sir, what you're asking is silly. Why should I waste time rhyming "Lilly" (And put it in meter, not being a cheater) With a word as archaic as "willy"?

Re: The future

y'know, I never really thought about that. it's like, it's one thing to tell a bunch of people "we made a game that not only has disabled people in it, but has them as the main characters, and shows that they're just like anybody else and that they deal with their issues without letting their disab...

Re: Gratz on ver. 3

Why the devs like to troll? We all came from the same place, I'm sure, and that place tends to instill a certain love of the fine arts... literature, music, politics, and makin' dudes angry over shit. You know, the classics. As for the criticism, they're (semi)professionals*. They can take a little ...

Re: V1/2 Music VS V3 Music discussion

Concord is sex for the ears, and The Student Council's new woodwinds work great. The melody for Out of the Loop is a little jarring, though. All the newer songs sound like they have greater differences between loud and quiet sections; whether that's a good thing or not I can't quite decide, personal...

Re: Katawa Shoujo Act 1 Preview feedback thread

Yep, but frankly, some of the everyday speech we all use is nowhere near grammatical or elegant. So it makes sense that some of the dialogue Hisao and the girls use is also like that. If anything they use very little slang for high school kids. Understood, but there's a certain point when you're wr...

No, it's not that; they just feel embarrassed that a bunch of foreigners did so much better than most of their stuff. 8)

scatological depiction in deaf heroine

See, you know he hasn't played the game. Hanako's not deaf.
