Hello! I would like to ask this:
If RAITA had not specifically mentioned the name Katawa Shoujo and it had instead come up at a different point in development, do you think it would have stuck? As it stands, there's a great sort of irony with the respectful nature and "offensive" name.
Thanks!

A few pages back there's a post about KS's name that's sort of related. We absolutely wouldn't have picked Katawa Shoujo ourselves, or probably any title in Japanese. The name is so direct and audacious, even all offensiveness aside, that I doubt we would've come to consider it seriously.

Has there ever been any confirmation or rumors that Raita knows what that simple sketch of his inspired?

How would it have felt and how would you have responded if RAITA had wanted to be a part of the development?
A good writer knows his limits. A great writer finds ways around them.

Completely depends on the specifics. I think we likely had worked with him.

Was there any moments where one of your number came up with a idea or solution to a problem so brilliant that it knocked everyone sideways?

I'm thinking along the lines of being stuck in how to progress of the routes and someone went "Hey, what if we..." and everyone else just went full kaneclapping.gif

Also if someone were to do a youtube let's play of some or all of the...other version of the game thats out there that we arent allowed to talk about here, would you guys have any issue with that?

I have heard from somewhere that KS's backgrounds where inspired by real locations. Is this true? If so, where?

All of the backgrounds are photos of varios locations, taken by a number of the devs.

Most of them are from Brown University in the states

Do you believe there's still any question worth being asked in this thread?

Sure. The thing is, most of the questions asked thus far, and most that will be asked, are trivia. They're simple to answer provided whoever replies remembers the answer. Deeper questions that prompt real thinking are rarer and also have a wider range of possibilities that hasn't really been explored to the extent of the trivia questions (and not even all the trivia has been exhausted).

How much thought and care went into designing the sex scenes? Was it obvious from the start that you would have the characters use protection? And most importantly, was it an "exciting" process? :p

Adding to the trivia questions:

It seems like the students at Yamaku are somewhat computer-challenged. Lilly, if I remember, mentions that she doesn't get along with computers very well. In Shizune's route, Hisao is helping with data entry and remarks on the poor excuse for a laptop he is working with. There is other inference from the stories. For instance, when Hisao is helping Shizune and Misha with paperwork in Hanako's ropute, he's helping with *paperwork*. It would have made a lot of sense for each class to put together a spreadsheet with a list of their reciepts, and then reporting and collating is trivial.

Was the lack of computer expertise intentional, or am I making stuff up?
If it was intentional,what was the reason for it?
