Bit of an odd question:

regarding the BGM track 'Breathlessly' (plays in Rin's route quite a bit):
  • Was it composed by one of the two composers listed in the credits?
  • Was it created specifically for Katawa Shoujo?
  • If not, was it originally created for a different English VN project?

I mean, he only appears in what, 3 scenes ?


What's the significance of the guy?
He has no special importance, the scene visualization worked a whole lot better when he could actually be shown.

Yes it was composed by Blue123, for KS.

One spot of dialogue with Kenji I noticed...

"But if I were going to kill someone, I'd do it by throwing them off the roof and making it look like an accident."

Coincidence? Or a joke/Easter egg?

First of all, thank you to all KS Devs, and most importantly to Suriko for unleashing a torrent of that feel onto /v/.

But something irks me. From what I understand, many people claim that Lilly's route has a higher quality due to being a personal favorite on the team, while Shizune's route...was disregarded. Now I may or may not believe this; simply the messenger. Just want to know what's your perspective of this rumor?
I don't really have any. I've read praise and bashing for every route. Which route is the favourite of some part of the audience doesn't really move me one way or another right now.

I'm surprised the Lilly route didn't have more two heads and sex with siblings given where the writer comes from.

Nah...it was good though.

Is there any chance we could get some summaries of the larger scrapped story arcs and such, now that the game has been released? And excuse my newfriendlyness, but isn't there a subforum only visible to devs where a lot of these types of things are posted? If so, would it be hard to set it so that anyone can view it? The main reason I ask is due to the statements about the developers having scrapped more content than what actually remains in the game. Honestly, I think it would be really cool to see the kinds of things that have changed over the years.

I have two questions, if you don't mind.

1. Did the community's visions and feedback alter how you wrote the story at all? As in did their views on certain characters and ideas they have influence you at all?

2. How did some, if not all of the story writers/artists (Hanako, Lilly, and Rin stick out to me in particular on this) feel when they began writing/drawing the sex scenes? Did it feel strange at all that the character they had been writing and drawing up to that point now had to be written and drawn having sex?

Did any of the devs put themselves into the game as a side/main character? :P

How much did the writers interact with the other writers in writing their own paths? I know apparently Suriko cowrote Hanako's path, but other than that, did each writer pretty much come up with every idea and line of dialogue for their respective paths?

1) No.
2) Our army of teenage girl artists couldn't draw penises without fits of giggling. Does that count?

Is that the reason you don't see any in KS? :)
