Unfortunately the rumors for a KS2 and KS3 stem from a dev blob stating that KS2 was cancelled, and that they would skip straight to KS3. This was posted on April 1st

There will be NOTHING new related to KS aside from occasional art as far as I know, no game updates, no new content, no new game, nothing. While I wish that wasn't true, I see no signs indicating otherwise unless the devs are hiding it for a surprise, which I just don't see happening.

~I hate endings~ Fan fiction is the only way to keep KS alive!
~The only good ending is a sequel~

Really? thats odd considering Hebrew is a semitic language and Japanease is far from being semitic. odd

Thanks but, I didn't get it xD
Which of the vowels is accentuated? Hah, nah or koh?

I mean in the sense that 'A' is pronounced like 'ah', for example, Shizune in Hebrew letters would naturally be read as "She-zoo-ne" or however you'd type that xD
There would be absolutely no way to think it's "She-zoon".
My intention was that it's more similar to Japanese than English is.

That is just the example I was about to use there, but realized how it sounds just before I wrote it XD

Hi, I think 4LeafStudio members on several occasions mentioned that the visual novel "narcissu" was a big influence, and a favourite VN of some of the writers/team members.

How exactly would you say Narcissu influenced KS?

Read the chapter "7F" of Narcissu. Then read the first two scenes of KS.
<Aura> would you squeeze a warm PVC bottle between your thighs and call it "manaka-chan"
<Suriko> I would do it if it wouldn't be so hard to explain to my parents

I'm attempting to write a fan fiction(Hanako - Epilogue of sorts), but it follows the good ending of the Hanako route from Alpha. If we can't talk about Alpha does that mean I can't go after the Alpha ending for my fan fiction?
I'm just a rusty old goat and a poor writer by anyone's standards, so no need to take my advice to heart, and when you do, take a handful of salt with it.

The ban on talking about the Alpha only applies to the forums. The internet is your own dominion. We're not going to stop fansposting their own stuff on their own blogs etc..

I had planned on posting the fan fic in the fan fiction thread, seems like the best place to get views and feedback for a Katawa Shoujo fan fiction. If I want to post it on these forums, should I change it so that it follows the release route instead?

I honestly think that you'll be fine if you post it there. Just don't try discussing the alpha in this thread as if it were canon.
