With Visual Novel Maker soon to be release, How do you feel about the possibility of people trying to make a Katawa Shoujo 2 or a VN based on the same idea?

That question has been answered multiple times before, and I dont think their stance has changed.

I'll clarify a point, since the question asked really touches on two different subjects.

Making a "Katawa Shoujo 2" is still a no, and it will always be a no. The reasons why have indeed been explained multiple times.

Making a VN based on the same idea, as long as that means "making a romance/adult VN about disabled high school students, without using material which is in any way, shape or form part of KS", generally leaves us pretty indifferent. We believe there are no great advantages, and several significant disadvantages, in trying to copy KS. Therefore, we think prospective VN creators would be much better off creating original content, instead of trying to duplicate our example.

Thanks for the reply, my apologies for asking "what may be a tiring" question. I was just curious if the teams opinion on the matter has changed since the announcement of VN maker.
Thank you

I do apologize if this is out of line, feel free to delete this post if so. A friend of mine wants to adapt KS into an audio drama that “takes a few creative liberties and uses a mix of the beta and the final product”. I’ve tried to explain to her that you guys probably don’t want her doing this, but she’s saying that there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with it in the license, and she’d be sad if you guys were dissatisfied. I’ve pointed her to this topic on numerous occasions, but she’s been “too lazy” (probably too scared), so I’m doing it for her (if you’re reading this, Sky, you’re welcome). So, I guess what I’m asking is:
1. Is she actually allowed to do this?
2. If so, how far is she allowed to go with her “creative liberties”?
3. Seeing as how the leaked beta is (understandably) a bit of a sore point, is she allowed to include any bit of it?
4. In the unlikely event she is allowed to do this, do you guys approve?
I’m sorry for asking so much, and thank you for reading all the way through here. I not-so-eagerly await likely having to show her your answer. /:

1,2,3,4:no. Well, 2 is just for the sake of providing all of our no, but still.

As I thought. Thank you for answering, and wish me luck breaking the news to her. XD

EDIT: If you don’t mind me asking as well, what did you mean by the part that I put in bold? That if she didn’t make some changes, it’d be okay?

No, I meant that since 1 got a negative answer and 2 is dependent on 1 receiving a positive answer, it was pointless to respond to 2.

Do you think Hanako would ever swear?

Probably. I think everyone swears at some point.

I've only ever known one person who didn't swear, and even then we got her to say "shit" once.

Then again there isn't that much swearing in Japan to begin with so it's a bit of a hard one
