Oh man. I guess now we are just waiting for that call from KyoAni... oh wait, we actually have to *make* the game first.

I am still trying to decide whether more attention is a good or bad thing.

I was just about to post about this but you beat me to it. It's really cool seeing it getting "official" attention like this.

It is rather impressive to say the least, that is that KS was mentioned in a Japanese magazine (It would seem they're impressed?). As for the long-term effects, I doubt were going to see lots of morons and/or teenagers joining on the forums, it's not like KS was mentioned in some western magazine that that demographic reads (thankfully not mentioned in a western magazine atall). At least until KS is mentioned in western media (if ever), we probably wont see 'that sort of people' in the forums.

Saw this posted on /v/ and followed it back here. I hope this will result in positive attention for the game. Also what the hell was /jp/ going on about "marblecake" in the translation for the article? I dunno....

"Marblecake" is related to the other 4chan article below the KS one, about /b/ hijacking the Time magazine 100 most influential people vote. They arranged moot to win the vote and to show that they have complete control over the results, arranged the top10 so that the first letters would spell "marblecake" when put in order.

Oh man devs, you gotta give yourselves a pat on the back. There are no words to how awesome this is. This is only the beginning too. Who knows how they'll react once the translated demo gets finished.
