Re: Which ending is most likely for you?

You could just as easily get a good end by ignoring Lilly's advice while also not being a douche about it. Just the game never gives you that option. :lol: I was deliberately limiting myself to the options presented in the game (except for Rin, where I kinda flailed for an answer at the end). I, to...

Weird. I can't remember the last time I saw a door like that.

Not just yet. Tell me: where is it you're from where the doors are not just about universally like this?

Re: Preconceptions about the routes

People keep mentioning a lack of resolution in Shizune's route...I guess they just skip over the part where they all resolve to get over the petty depressing bullshit and better themselves. I meant more from a relationship point of view. It's just kinda "hey, maybe see ya around, bye". And it's not...

Re: Which ending is most likely for you?

Well, I tried to play as I would really choose at first. Much to my chagrin, trying to be nice to everyone within reason and taking my own preferences when they didn't seem to hurt nor help anyone but me (as in the case of promising to run, or joining the art club) resulted in Manly Picnic Bloody Gr...

Re: Preconceptions about the routes

I glad to say I came to the game by word of mouth, of the more cryptic "came for the fapping, stayed for the feels" variety, so there was little to nothing in the way of spoilers. On the downside, it means I came to the game after its one year anniversary had already passed. :( However, I'm not beyo...

Re: For Want of a Nail - Misha Route (New Chapter 8/7)

Otherwise, I'm not sure what to think about this chapter. You kind of gave Misha a disability, only no one knows what that is. I guess I'll have to wait until later to see where this is going...? I kind of feel like this story is not about the Misha we all know and love. She has a disability, she h...

I'm not sure I'm on board with the swan thing. They're pretty and elegant and stuff, but they're total assholes in person.

On par, but along different axes. Emi is cute like this:

Re: Reading Katawa Shoujo to someone else

screen readers function off of being able to copy/paste text. Mmm, that's not strictly true. In Windows, for example, there's a whole API that, if implemented in the code's controls, allows it offer accessibility properties. Try running Narrator sometime and just do normal stuff. Lots of things you...

Re: Reading Katawa Shoujo to someone else

Geez. You've really gotten yourself into something here haven't you? :lol:

By the way, isn't it a bit ironic that the game is not screen-reader friendly? :oops:

Well that would disqualify what Lilly said as speechifying, since she had a very good reason — never seeing Hanako again. Also saying goodbye forever is not exactly mundane.

Re: Reading Katawa Shoujo to someone else

She had a negative reaction to a lot of things in the arc, really, most notably: * The lack of buildup to the first lovemaking scene. She did like the others, though. * The sheer length of Act 4 * The repetitive nature of the dialogue, especially in Act 4 again * The "speechifying", especially Lill...
