Re: Theoretical: Katawa Shoujo as a Hardcopy CYOA?

It would be quite a hefty CYOA- the word count on the game is somewhere around 450,000, which would make a book roughly the size of the whole Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Re: All in all, what was your favorite route?

While I do have to give hats off to Rin's route for providing the most "Well, that was unexpected", I actually like Hanako's route the most of all of them.

Re: I visited Yamaku High today

My grandpa went to Brown after he came back from the war, so there was a definite boggle moment. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have approved of his alma mater being used as the backdrop for an eroge, but things happen. :)

Re: The "thank you 4LS" thread.

I have never been more thankful for my sense of morbid curiosity. I had heard that a game was being based on that RAITA picture, so I decided to wait it out and see what was up. An initial balk at the premise was balanced by how /tg/ had actually produced some useful tabletop gaming material when th...

Which reminds me- going through Shizune's route can put some of Misha's lines in other routes in pretty harsh perspective.

Re: The Hanako Thread - Spoilers, obviously

3. I guess it is kind of ironic how initially "Lilly's and Hanako's" Hisao acts pretty much the same, but at the routes, they're totally different. Hanako's Hisao increases his paranoid protective instincts and lack of common sense, capability to think and communicate up to eleven. Lilly's Hisao is...

Re: The Hanako Thread - Spoilers, obviously

It was the zooming I think. As the screen zoomed out the muffins took up a large screen, and then my eyes just kind of got stuck on them cause it was a bit of "WTF Muffins?" thing going on and my mind is instantly drawn to "WTF?" things. Though I sort of liked how the people around theme were kind ...

Re: Reactions in Other Paths?

I was wondering what everyone's reactions were when they saw a girl whose path they've already finished while playing through another girl's. I played Shizune's path right after Lilly's, and it felt totally strange when Lilly and her were arguing. Lilly's dialogue had a lot more weight to it, and s...

Re: More of Miki

and yeah, even though she was only in a couple scenes, I like Miki's casual attitude and all that. any girl who sits on my desk to talk to me is good with me. 8) her route probably would have been a little similar to Emi's, though, with finding out what happened to her and helping her deal with it....

Re: Tension between the heroines

Specifically, I have a question of the tension between Lilly and Shizune. Having only finished reading Lilly's route (working my way towards Shizune right now), you learn that there is a tension between the two. After asking Shizune about it while Lilly was away, Shizune tells Hisao to ask Lilly, w...

Re: Easter Egg General

The exterior shots of Yamaku (the gate and courtyard, at least), are from Brown University, Rhode Island, and the main building shown is actually Andrews Hall. I knew this because that's where my grandpa went to college after he got back from the war. Not sure if he'd have approved of his alma mater...

Re: What you learned (and re-learned) from this game:

The big one for me was: "Demand more from other games." Not because KS was bad, but instead the opposite. Others include- -I can actually enjoy and be affected by good Romance stories. -I need to find myself a sweet hat to go with my suit. -There are circumstances that will make me willing to give u...
