Is it larger than Emi's old boyfriends?

It actually kinda worries me that so many people are asking about a fictional penis. Have you based your life around KS so much that not being able to compare Hisao to yourself will be detrimental to your health?

I'm not comparing Hisao to myself.

I'm playing as Hisao so I want to know if he has a monster or a baby penis.

Also, I want to know if it's bigger than Emi's other sexual partners, so I can either feel superior or realise that Hisao isn't able to satisfy her sexually.

Is the music recordings of real instruments or MIDI/synth'd? Playing it by ear it sounds like the latter, but I am a complete idiot, so I've no real clue.

1) I read somewhere that the developers didn't really like to draw the H-scenes. Is there a reason to include them? Having played through all paths, feels like only Rin's and Hanako's were justified..otherwise I didn't feel as much emotional connection for the others.

2) Having completed Rin's story last, her route was by far the most amazingly well written. I'm assuming you guys spent the most time writing her story. I was wondering if the developers had the same conclusion as I did or it was meant to be interpreted differently for everyone. I felt that her story was one of true love. Loving each other for who they were and accepting each other's shortcomings. Is this what the developers had intended? Just curious

In any case, thank you to the developers for creating such an amazing game..rin's route is more than worth it to pay 50 bucks for it. The melancholic music in the game is really the best and I would like to thank the developers who created the music for the game. Thank you so much 4LS.
1) We did H scenes because we wanted to. Maybe it was something like a dare, or maybe we were hung on the premise, maybe we just wanted to see if we could, who knows.
2) Any interpretation is more or less valid, regardless of author intentions (if any)

This was answered earlier in the thread (too lazy to find,) where Aura said all of the tracks were synth'd on the computer.

What's Rin's favorite food?
I don't know.

"I wanted to write a Kenji path, but was shot down due to technical issues." said Losstarot (Guest Art by Kamifish) in the blog long time ago.(July 24, 2009)
what was the original "path" of Kenji? i have the heartilly (i wrote this right?) who all that little hints and that strange-awesome scene without glasses is a hint of part of "his path",same with the rooftop scene,the bath scenes and even when he appears, enter to his room and want eat pizza with him(with Hisao money, of course)in the Shizune´s path. finally in Shizune path exist a kind of "Kenji friendship path"like bonus im really curious about how he was in the begin and how would be engaged with Hisao. was friendship route, love route (why not? more breaking barrriers in this kind of games) or both?
It was never written or even planned so we'll never know.

Thanks.

I have to say, I'd love to hear it all performed on real instruments... I mean, listen to this. Hnnnnnngh. One day...

That said, I was wondering if the concept of writing culturally Japanese characters as English authors was ever an issue. Did you decide from the get-go that you would refrain from using honorifics (e.g. san, chan, kun, etc.) to produce more natural sounding speech? I can't recall, but I also believe there might have been a few English idioms that found their way into the game. Did you have someone advising on Japanese language/culture?
We debated the honorifics issue for some time, but in the end it was an obvious choice to drop them. It's a bad idea to use Japanese honorifics in English text. We didn't have any advisor.

For the "teenage girly artists". Did your parents/siblings ever walk in while you were drawing explicit content for KS, or otherwise discover this? And if it happened/isn't too personal, how did that go?

Also, which members of 4LS made it all the way from the beginning to the end of the project?
For the second part: hivemind, me and A22. Possibly also crud could count.

Some of them play on the themes of the girls, but they are unique compositions. They're not in the jukebox, we'll decide about the inclusion to soundtrack later.

I don't think this has been asked, but how did you guys come up with Arrhythmia for Hisao?

It is a reference to chess, as Hanako plays it a lot
Specifically, it means "Knight at c5 captures the piece at b3". Or I think it does; my chess notation is pretty rusty.
See the nifty symbolism? White knight?
