It's time for me to apologize to 4 Leaf Studios.

During early 2013, I made an attempt to read Katawa Shoujo . At the time, I did not want to enjoy it. Why is that? Because I had a grudge against 4 Leaf Studios. It's only within the last couple weeks that I have felt ready to forgive the group. I'm using this post to say "I'm sorry." Let me try to ...

Re: Playing Multiple Paths (A VN virgin's question)

Oh, I called KS a dating sim. Is it not? Did I just commit some kind of faux pas or blasphemy or something? :P Don't worry. I use phrases incorrectly all the time. It wasn't all that long ago when I used to throw around terms such as "porn game" even when I was referencing something that's relative...

Re: Katawa DLCs

Perhaps a bit silly, but I would also go for a reboot-esque dlc that changed it to a Mass Effect-esque or JRPG version, battles with the evil and all. Relevant to my interests. I've always wanted to see more than one WRPG with genuine cute aesthetics. (The only one I can think of is Sonic Chronicle...

Re: Recommend a VN

I've been slowly reading Toradora Portable lately, thanks to the more recent translation patch. Just like the source material, it can be quite silly and also surprisingly serious. Is it amazing? No. I've had complaints with some seemingly out-of-nowhere endings, and there is a little too much emphas...

Re: Other love stories you read before Katawa Shoujo

I started delving into romance comics just a couple years after I discovered there were comics about topics other than costumed heroes. A few indie romance comics held my interest for a while: the first book of Red String , an early volume of Strangers in Paradise , and the last few issues of Shades...

Re: Recommend a VN

Anyone know of any good Dating/life like (Kinda like KS) VNs? Ive seen a couple that look interesting but forking out $80 is a bummer... Romance visual novels are quite common. Think about what you specifically want, and there's a good chance it exists. *If* there is an official English translation...

Re: Journey of a Non-weeaboo

To follow up on the somewhat rushed post I made earlier... Another way to talk with other fans, and find out what they like, is a few communities on Reddit. I say this because I've read and posted on r/animesuggest, r/manga, r/visualnovels, and other related sub-Reddits. This is what I do in order t...

Re: Journey of a Non-weeaboo

I see a lot of anime-related content indirectly on gaming forums and such, and so often it seems that girls are treated quite unfairly. Always in skimpy clothing, being preyed on by weird guys, et cetera. I just really don't like that stuff. And then I hear about there being women's underwear vendi...

Re: Recommend a VN

Since SpunkySix asked, Juniper's Knot is available for OS X. It was created with Ren'py, so it's reasonably compatible with all recent computers. Also, way too many are exclusive to Japan and relying on Internet translations can be hit-or-miss. If you gave me a few minutes, I could probably name a d...

Re: What would you have done if you made the game?

First, I would consider all of my plotbunnies, and try to settle on one premise. I would make sure that my story is not overly complex, pretentious, or long. I would also make sure that I'm passionate about the story's ideas. Second, I'd commit to start writing on a specific day, set aside specific ...

Re: How would you feel about being able to change Hisao's na

A large number of my old favorite video games let the player change characters' names. It didn't matter whether or not the characters had personalities. This level of player control seemed to be more common in the '80s and early '90s, when story had to be conveyed through dialogue and sprites rather...

Re: How many people would pay for KS?

I've purchased at least ten indie VNs on PC, a few more on iOS, and one on Vita. The last one I bought was Princess Battles . In my opinion, $20-25 US is about right. I believe it shows that the creator has enough confidence in their product that they can sell it for a modest amount. A free demo and...

Re: Telling friends and/or family?

According to my family's religion, I shouldn't be playing this game as it involves premarital love and sex scenes. Recently I've been reading A Gentler God . The book isn't for everyone, and I admit that I have a few complaints with it. The author uses too many footnotes, and uses some of them to m...

Re: So I was reading a KS review...

There has been a lot of overlap between VNs, romance games, and porn. If you want to change that, then start writing, coding, and creating art. You might not become internet famous, but you can help the EVN community. I entered the VN fandom after hearing so much about Tokimemo and Sakura Wars. In t...
