Re: A question regarding license

What is this, trying to probe ways to maximize your KS references? Since you asked whether I'd be happy about this, you're getting an unsolicited opinion. No, I wouldn't be happy. I cringe every time these questions pop up, because references like these are nearly always horribly bad ideas and make ...

Re: A question regarding license

The Rin Katawa example is fine because it's a small reference embedded into a meaningless detail. The character named Rin Katawa wouldn't resemble Rin in any way, and the character was one of dozens of randomly generated ones you'd possibly meet during a playthrough, with no actual bearing to the st...

Re: Ask!

Popular things have been imitated forever. Take a look around google play store. For every popular mobile game there are about 500 clones of it, trying to mine the same vein the original struck. Maybe it's a scumbag move, maybe it's not? There's no point getting worked up over it either way. Aside f...

Re: Ask!

Yeah. The KS project didn't have clear creative leadership, so the people who spent the most time or most vigor into the creative discussions and feedback clearly had more influence than others. I was one of them, but even though I was the head writer I didn't want to drown out the creative voices o...

Re: Ask!

When approaching the steps for writing the story, did you feel comfortable with the ability you had, or did you feel you had to touch up on it with a guide book to help some of your weaker points or even take writing classes? And in any case, would you suggest doing either of those things for anyon...

Re: Ask!

Why are there so many students at Yamaku when they play a very little role in the story? Almost every setting to a story is much larger than the space the story requires. Why are there so many hobbits in the Shire? Why are there so many buildings in Neo-Tokyo? This should be obvious; it's because o...

Re: Ask!

The hosting is donated by a lovely and wonderful friend of ours who probably has already forgotten he's hosting k-s.com. I actually don't know who owns and pays for the domain, but I believe it's crud. There was an interesting episode with the domain around 2007. It was initially registered by some ...

Re: Ask!

Like SC's smug references to inside jokes imply, a lot of it is just silly "you had to be there" comedy stuff. Aside from that, the releases of course felt great. The Speedboat Carousel thing was pretty important to me, since I instigated it. It happened in fall 2008, when we had been working a year...

Re: Ask!

No. Never even crossed my mind. There's nothing in KS that's so fundamentally awful that it would require changing the content, and so many small to medium problems that fixing them all would require overhauling massive portions of the story, and fixing just one or two would mean nothing, especially...
