I agree with the above, but looking into a name that is not offensive or possibly positive might the give the game a better footing from the start, as it is more edgy and taboo that KS was. Even though KS has turned the negative thoughts about itself around, that won't stop a much bigger backlash if this game has a somewhat offensive title.laamentio wrote:Katawa shoujo had bad press for everything.

However do you think it would be adequate the name you proposed? KS got some bad press because of it's name, even if it did attract several fans over the net. Though I don't mind either way.
I didn't like the name proposed, but I don't think that the name will define the success or not of this product (if is ever released). The problem itself could be that this work is a kind of spin off of the KS.
That's like the Damocles' sword over this project.
Might I suggest having a name that doesn't involve " something shoujo" as it will more likely, even by a little bit, give the game a better image. I mean, what would you see as more taboo, a game called the equivalent of "Mental Girls" or one called "States of Mind" for example,
