How do you feel after KS after all these years? Do you remember it with nostalgia? And how do you feel about the forums not being as busy anymore?

Also sorry for asking all these questions that someone else has probably asked before
I still feel that we somehow managed to pull something great out of the abyss, even though it took a toll on all of us (and taught us all a lot about honing our crafts).

Although since I started attending Comiket I feel a little more attached to the group than I did at the time of the release. I guess that's just me though.

I don't really use the forums (apart from a few threads that I follow - like this one), but I know that there are still a few pockets of fans where I kick around, like the subreddit, a couple of facebook pages and Twitter.

It would be great to have an active fanbase of thousands, but then again it's hard enough to manage the few people that are still around today without feeling like I'm not doing enough to engage with people.

Does Suriko know that Summer's Clover has been turned into a sort of VN?

He does now. Since the guy ripped our backgrounds, sprites and music I'm removing your link while waiting for further reactions, which I'd expect to be unpleasant.

Man that's just wrong It is not a fanfic or something, you are talking about a new project based on material that don't belong to whoever is doing that VN or even allowed to use the license for create a VN like that using their resources (sprites, backgrounds, etc) and the script made by Surikoo, even if it's free that's just abusing of others work.

1) I'm getting the feeling, that the inspiration for Lilly's theme "Concord" was "Sunshine on Leith" by The Proclaimers. It has the same vibe.
2) It's sad, that Miki and Suzu couldn't become a route, even, if the prototype existed. Oh well, but that's the reality. There wouldn't be this rip off mentioned above, if it was implemented. But... yeah.

The main thing is, that it would be have to be rewritten from Hisao's perspective.

If you make a fan work you can do whatever you like, really.

To be fair I really enjoy writing things from Hanako's perspective, and I tried to do Lilly for Duet (the Winter KS artbook)

What happened to the forum? Will we get the old look back?
A good writer knows his limits. A great writer find ways around them.

Do you really think Hanako's route was acceptable?

Pretty sure we've answered this question before in this very thread but yes obviously if it made it into the game we thought it was good enough to be in the game.

Some folk liked it. Some folk didn't. So it goes.

What did the editors, like Silentcook, of Katawa Shoujo do? As in, what where their jobs? Did they write minor characters, parts of the heroines? I was blazing through the fan works the devs wrote, and Summer's Clover tastes like Lilly, the Old series tastes like Emi, and so on. But Silentcook's writing just sort of feels a bit like Katawa Shoujo in general, did he spread his writing throughout everything? Perhaps I've been hit with some psychological effect.

What is the image in the pink flash that Hisao sees in Emi's Act 2, when Hisao is going to visit the sick Emi and has some lewd thoughts? It's too fast for me to recognize.

Is there a list of other dev projects that is stored somewhere? I had only heard of Suriko's Salty Salty Studios yesterday. What about a list of dev fan fiction? I enjoyed the Aoyama Chiyo route and all the future Hanakos and etc. from Silentcook and cpl_crud.

Also, where do I ask about the broken search function I realize the Support subforum is for the game and not this forum

I proofread and corrected grammar and syntax issues, did some reality checking and controlled continuity, provided feedback to and requested rewriting from the writers, wrote interstitial text, reworked or axed dead weight. All over.

None of the minor characters were "owned" by me, or by any of the writers specifically. The more they appear in a certain branch, the more that branch's writer was an "authority" on them, so to speak.

No list of dev projects or works exists to my knowledge, but there's a dev stalking guide on the blog.

Also, the Support subforum is the right place to ask about that... and no, I can't do anything about it myself. :?

How long did it take to write the script of Katawa Shoujo?
It's not how far you get before your done, but what you accomplish getting there.

The wine game took about 5 years, but there were lots of re-writes.

I'd say a single path took about 2 years to write, but that's not entirely accurate
