Katawa Viruses

Post by bradpara » Thu Apr 14, 2011 10:24 pm

I have decided to work the old joke about anime computer viruses for KS, baiscally describing made up computer viruses that are inspired by the chars of the game. Let's begin

Shizune: The Shizune virus is very agressive attacking vital areas of infected systems and seeking to take over. Extremly difficult to remove once it has infected a system. It has a crious habit of disabling the sound cards and corrupting audio files. The virus orginated in Australia and used the country's advanced information infrastructure to spread all over the globe. Usually found alongside the Misha Virus. When it attacks a system that is also infected with the Lilly virus, it often sets off a cascade effect the crashes the system completly.

Hanako: The Hanako virus by contrast buries itself deep inside the system, so deeply in fact that one might not even realize they have been infected. The virus seems to be attracted to word processer and .pdf files. It also can cause some minor to moderate graphics distortion. Almost always found with the Lilly Virus.

Misha Virus:
Acts like a trojan horse would,after "drilling" into your computer, it hides in your files like a friendly fluffy teddy bear untill you click it, which activates spontaneously combusting pop ups saying nothing but:
"WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA~!"
Good joke... Everybody laugh... Roll on snare drum... Curtains...

Hanako = Shizune = Lilly = Rin > Kenji > Placeholder > Emi

Oddly enough, the Emi virus will speed up your machine, and cull any junk files.
It's a good thing Shizune is deaf, she is the only one who can stand (not) hearing "Wahaha~!" over and over.

It also overclocks your system and runs the risk of making it overheat if you run your computer for too long at any one time.

The Yuuko virus causes programs to fail unexpectedly but apologizes profusely every time it happens and offers to help you re-open them.

(By the way, the other ideas so far are just perfect!)

Let's get a couple of obvious ones out of the way.

Lilly: Short out connection to monitor
Shizune: Short out connection to speakers.
It would be beautiful if KS was released for download on October 7. Greatest. B-day gift. Ever. (This is not meant to be taken as telling the devs to hurry up, so please don't take it as such, it's just a dream of sorts.)

The Rin Virus. Hides self in recycle bin, mixes up shortcut paths thus leading to user confusion, also causes Paint to open randomly and for mouse drivers to fail. Usually found alongside The Emi Virus

Saki (because people liked her so much I'm sure they are going to consider her as an implicit part of the game) virus paralyzing the system very slowly, anyone?

And Shizune's virus could do something like buying food all over the Internet without your consent.
While we are here discussing, Hanako is somewhere hopping from dark to darker tiles. Alone.

This sounds familiar... Now where have I heard this.... Oh yeah! Windows!
Nothing to be seen here. Do check out my little dabbling in the art of words, though.

Slowly fills the ram buffer until it crashes?

Also, Suzu virus: Makes your pc hibernate randomly.

Just make sure you don't get the Hisao virus. It comes hidden in mails that claim to be from a cute girl who wants to confess to you. Once your computer is infected, the CPU will start to run at full speed until it overheats and the computer shuts down. What makes it so dangerous is its tendency to attract a wide variety of other viruses.

Hisao is a trojan.

Natsume will color the two halves of your screen differently. Naomi would periodically make the screen flash in a bid to give people seizures.

I feel like a fucking idiot, I just realized the joke here is that viruses disable some aspect of the computer and the game is about disabled people...

...I'm sorry, I've been dead on my feet for two days and counting, I'm extremely out of it.
