It's christmas and I'm mildly drunk so here's a silly question.

If you had to spend christmas, and all that encompasses for you, with one of the girls in the game, who would it be?
Emi maybe? I think she would reign in my excessive eating. Also right now I feel like I need her energy level

Akira. She knows how to party.

Aw yeah she would be fun. Lots of appropriate answers here.

Also, just thinking about it... Would most of the girls be about 27-8 by now?

Well they are about 18-19 during the events of KS, I think. So add 4--soon to be 5--years to that and you get 22-23. Is that correct?

P.S. If I may, I would probably also go for Emi as well. Emi or Lilly.

Unless something changed or my memory fails me, the game is set in 2007

I see someone saw me on a stream. It's a reference to her bad end (and story in general) being aimed at standard VN conventions of whiteknighting moeblobs, being achieved by going down a typical set of choices one would expect in a VN and dealing with the consequences. Perhaps not the best wording (it was mentioned in passing in light conversation), but I'd say it still applies.

It seems pretty polarising, and that's fine. Maybe I didn't have the skill to pull it off. There certainly wasn't any intention to make a poor-quality path or story, though.
Here's another question: Do you really intend to keep lying about the nature of the rape scene 5 years later? There wasn't a choice for it like there was with Misha, and something so bad doesn't pop out of nowhere and insert itself into the game without an "intention to make a poor-quality path or story, though." Wasn't Lilly's route supposed to be something about telling the truth?

Hanako is just under a month older than me and I recall that Tanabata in 2007 fell on my birthday, August 8th. Just thinking that while I was celebrating my 18th birthday on a mountain railway deep in the Austrian Alps on the other side on the world, Hiaao is either taking Lilly or Shizune out to the festival, Miki has accepted Suzu's confession or the many possibilities that can happen with the KS cast...it makes me feel closer to them.

Ah, I had completely missed that it took place in 2007. I just assumed that the year was left vague. Also, Suriko, do you stream or were you just on a stream?

With how 2016 has been, with the sudden rise in global feminism, do you think Kenji was right? I feel the need to start preparing for the war...

This game and forum are pretty old so maybe these questions have already been answered before, but I couldn't find an answer anywhere so here it goes. How did you go about forming your dev team? Was it originally one person who had the idea and found friends to help or was it brain-stormed together by a group of people who formed 4LS together? Did any one aspect (art. music, writing, backend) of your game start development way ahead of the others?

Thanks for reading this. I've been working on a project myself for about 6 months with others helping on and off and now and I'm at the point where I need a stable dev team to continue working efficiently.

Among your most pertinent adversities, I'm sure you were posed with many paradoxical and often self-defeating inquiries that tested yourself and your fellow crew-mate's merits. However, I must pose to you now, the greatest question of which you have been faced through your many years of Katawa Shoujo affiliation.

And that question is: What do you think of Howard Stern's penis?

If you think Kenji's opinions sound reasonable you might need to take a break from the Internet.
<Aura> would you squeeze a warm PVC bottle between your thighs and call it "manaka-chan"
<Suriko> I would do it if it wouldn't be so hard to explain to my parents

KS's core idea was by one person but they never participated in the development itself in any way. The actual design ("brain-storming") was done by the dozens of anons who initially got the project started, and then 4LS. Music and coding started later than other things, since Nicol and delta didn't join 4LS until like 8-9 months into the project.

Bah! Never. The war is coming, and I know it!
