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.

Yes.
I hereby ask that all future articles written on use use Comic Sans for the text and re-draw all the art assets with Crayon.
See! Thats why you need a media flake... errr... flack. To enforce those standards of conceptual purity on the "Media Hordes" :lol:

Am I the only one that sees the Lilly sprite in the main picture as the older version? That is, not the one being used in the Act 1 release?
Anyway, congrats to the devs. It seems weird that they think that 4chan users made it, though. It makes me think that they didn't really did their homework on the subject.
Siiiiigh....

I gotta say, congrats to the devs. getting KS noticed in any kind of print media is huge, especially a foreign-language one. sad to say it probably won't happen in any major American magazine - I know VNs are bigger in Japan than they are here. but damn, that'd be awesome if it did. :mrgreen:

Akira/Hanako for the win. Meiko/Nurse for even more win. Miki/Misha for win that goes BEYOND THE IMPOSSIBLE.

.......... I'm not sure if I understand what you just said..... 3 hours of sleep may be the problem...
Either way, I'll try to answer based on what I think you tried to. If you say that the devs are users from 4chan, I'll bring a piece of the FAQ:
Q: Are you all Anonymous posters from 4chan?
A: No. Several of us browse 4chan occasionally, and we might post even more occasionally, but that's it. Believe it or not, we never start threads about KS. We might respond to them now and then, but most of the time we're far more busy working on the project.

exactly, man. languages may separate people, but we all know awesome when we see it. (...I think I just channeled Jack Black.) hopefully some friendly neighborhood bilinguals will translate the Act 1 demo into Japanese soon, so more people can play KS.

though I do kinda wonder how you say "MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!" in Japanese.

Devs you really have tapped into something special. I think the fact this is a labor of love rather than pure smut or a cash cow is what makes this game stand out. It is the same thing that makes a good home cooked meal better than anything you can buy, because the secrete ingredient is the effort and care you put into it because it is yours. Keep up the good work and I hope this gives you a little boost in knowing that all your hard work is worth it, and we appreciate it.
We are such greedy creatures, no matter how much we consume we need more and more...........KS feed the beast, it hungers, it hungers from the very depths.

There are several translation projects for Act 1 ongoing, and yes one of them is Japanese.
