I guess I learnt that most of the devs had similar insecurities about the project, but probably not too much...

Hello there~

Post by Dravening » Tue Oct 20, 2015 8:14 am

Kinda new to those forums here, and as I saw, there is still activity after all those years and I am quite glad to see that.
I noticed that the last version of this game is finally released, and there will be no more after it, reaching it's end as a wonderful game.
I do have some questions and I already know that they are probably answered before to these forums, but my time is limited and makes the searching for them diffucult for me to find them. As a big fan of the game, I would like to know from the developers themselves:

1- Since this game made it's final steps, what are the plans for the future from all of you? If there are still plans, will those plans be made for a new game, like entirely? A KS2 was as I saw not a suitable option, so maybe a similar game with a similar concept is in your field of views?
If details cannot unfortunately be told or explained, is a "time period" possible to be mentioned for those plans to be made from all of you?

2- This must sound like a weird question, but is there an online place that you sell products from this, or from further games?

3- Last but maybe a bit too much as a question. How old are you guys that worked for this visual novel? I am mostly asking this because I am kinda interested to know about people themselves putting that much spirit for project like this, and I would love to see myself also helping for the creation of such a masterpiece.

I apologise if I am making you repeat your answers from those frequently asked question(if asked already). Thank you for taking your time to read this and good luck with whatever you decide to do and follow with your lives!~

Sincerly, a fan of your work.

1 - most of us are working on something; I would check our Twitter feeds etc (or forum signatures below...)

2 - not really. Sometimes there are artbooks sold by the artists at conventions but that is about it. I have seen some websites that are making KS merchandise but these are mostly on their own bat.
3- I was 23-28 during development

Not sure if this has been asked so apologies if you heard this question already(haven't visited the forums in a while) but are there any plans for putting the Katawa Shoujo OST on Spotify?

I had a BSc, major/minor physics, before joining.

I had written for a few magazines and was also part of WinD fansubs. We did Higurashi and a few other Anime.

Now I have more boring degrees, and apart for looking at Square Enix's HQ from my office I have very little connection to the gaming industry

Do you actually read some early dev writings you made at that time? And how much of an improvement was it(from back then to now)?

You know that you can get the OST from KS main site right? There are also some other tracks spread out on the forum, like Summer's Clover and alt/unused versions of the tracks.
A good writer knows his limits. A great writer finds ways around them.

Yes I know :P Just thought, since I'm seeing things like Clannad get on spotify; why not KS.

I've read that Kenji was somewhat based on A22. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that A22 doesn't believe in a global feminist conspiracy, so in what way?

I'm not a writer, but I don't know that he was based on 22 so much as he was 22's character. I think 22 just used the character as an outlet for a lot of his personal quirkiness. Both 22 and Kenji have a habit of steering conversations into these hilarious off topic rants. The way they speak is also similar.
