No.

Hisao is not Emi's first boyfriend.

I think they mention that in the script?
I think what they're trying to ask is did Emi's first boyfriend taker her virginity or did Hisao?
Yes, I was talking about her virginity
Well, let's first set aside that you're more or less asking the second question ever posted on this thread (which received an answer that probably won't satisfy you), you can also find an alternate Dev response here, along with a discussion in depth on the larger question at hand.

I apologize. I was already able to get an answer on another resource, from a person who passed the rest of the root of the game. It suits me perfectly. And what is it that she already had experience in sex. But she taught the main character everything. It was just an annoying question for me that stuck in my head. Thank you very much for your responsiveness and answers. All the best! :) P.S. Sorry for my bad English, I'm Russian

Recently, I've been wondering whether it would be feasible to assemble a team of amateurs and make a VN similar in scope to KS (not KS2). What made so many people (or at least enough to keep a project alive) willing to create a VN from a one page doujin? Was it a fluke gathering, widespread appeal of concept/characters, an organized drive by a few people, multiple/none of the above?

My money is on "dumb luck". :mrgreen: I'm a relative newcomer though, best to hear what crud has to say.

I'm subscribed to this thread. I get an email that tells me when someone posts anything here.

So when I saw a reply from Silent Cook I thought that I was in the clear.

But essentially, "dumb luck" is right.

We had a perfect storm of people that knew what they were doing, an interesting concept, and an EOLVN scene that was still relatively small. That last part is important, as it really helped us find each other.

It is still possible, but there are a lot more people involved in creating VNs these days, so finding a team that has the "right mix" of people that you want to work with is hard.

I'm gonna have to second this. Though I was never involved in KS, I have recently been helping another studio with some translation work and proofreading. But getting this kind of international team working on a project just based on a random image probably won't happen again. At least not long enough to actually complete a game. Kind of an internet miracle, if you will. :)

Thanks for the responses! Guess I'll have to wait for another miracle...

Is Takashi's band-aided ear a not so subtle reference to Van Gogh? Seeing how he was one of the artists' OCs, if I recall.

And what was the project Molly was a cameo of? Aura mentioned it way back but gave no specifics other than it was something the team made themselves.
A good writer knows his limits. A great writer finds ways around them.

I've got a general question for the devs(for the ones still checking in here at least), but how does it feel now that it's been this long since KS was made. Does it still resurface in your mind/life these days, or is it mostly forgotten as a long past project you've worked on.

It's something I feel like I'll never be able to completely forget, so I was curious how it felt for the writers of it.

Oh, sure. Easy to forget as getting a limb transplant. :twisted:

Yeah I think that something like Phantom Limb Syndrome might describe it well.

Even when you're not actively thinking about it, it's in the back of your mind.

Well, that's my take anyway

Some days I don't think about it at all, other days I get to thinking about it and still cannot wrap my head around the fact of its existence. It helps somewhat that I still get the odd message here and there from people discovering the game for the first time, which is somehow even weirder than anything else, although I guess the internet is forever so it's not terribly surprising.
