You Saved My ex-girlfriend from Committing Suicide

Post by GuyOverThere » Fri Feb 03, 2012 1:25 am

I figured a topic name like "Thank you so much" would be very common and be overlooked so I got right to the point. And I'm going to try and keep it brief like that because I'm sure you're full of the love fest right now from people who were touched by this game.

I had a six year long relationship with a girl who had some form of aspergers. She basically sucked at getting her emotions across like most people would even though she said she cared about me. I guess the mis-communications came to a head and I broke up with her last August (I'm just a stinker, I know.) When we broke up, I was even more convinced it was all cool when she told me she didn't care (again, she sucked at showing her emotions.)

So my friend tells me 4chan made a game and links me to it (yeah yeah I know you guys aren't 4chan, now, you're from it or whatever) and even though I've really only played the no naku koro ni visual novels (and the only anime I've seen is Dragon Ball Z) I was bored on a Saturday night so I read it.

And I read it until I couldn't stop and ended up doing all of the girl's paths. Fun, simple. I was touched by a few, moved by others, unimpressed by some, but we all have our own opinions.

And I didn't even like Rin very much in Act 1. I honestly got her path by accident when I was trying to get Emi's or something (I didn't know flowcharts existed until after I finished KS). Anyway, Rin's personality really reminded me of my ex-girlfriend and I honestly feel like I didn't respect how she felt about the whole situation (I had no intention of getting back together with her, but I felt I should at least call her.) Anyway, I go to her house and knock on her door. Her mother is there (she lived alone.) I ask what's up and the mother tells me my ex-girlfriend has been having panic attacks for months and refused to leave the house and has basically been an emotionally mess. I walk into her room and my ex-girlfriend has a knife to her head, I pull her away and curse her out due to my shock. She says she likes to hold a knife to her head to see if she'll go through with suicide or not. Her mother walks in, sees the scene and bursts into tears.

Anyway, I drove them both to a hospital because my ex-girlfriend needed professional care and she had only seen a doctor once since the panic attacks started and the doctor said she was just recovering from a breakup. It turns out she actually has this really long name for a heart/mind condition that causes her to go clinically insane. Fuck her mother for not getting the attention sooner but that isn't what matters.

Anyway, my point is that I had resolved to never speak to her again, but your game made me feel like I should at least make sure her life has been okay after I left it. If I hadn't been there at that exact moment, maybe she wouldn't have killed herself (she probably wouldn't have to be honest) but maybe she would have.

It's kind of a weird thing to thank you for, but if you guys didn't make this game someone I still love could be dead. That's something I respect you for.

If this is in the wrong place or completely inappropriate delete it. Thanks anyway.

Seriously, no cripple porn game forum should have this many life stories in it.

Jokes aside, thanks for sharing. We here at the KS forums are always eager to hear a new and interesting life story.

I really hate bandwagoning, but someone had to be thanked.

Hey, we're generous people here. I can safely say that he probably took two levels in Man. One level in luck. A few in timing. And possibly one for kindness.
I'm not good with this sort of thing, so I"m just going to say it here:
Thank you, Four Leaf Studios.

That is all.

What's the right word here? Impressive? Touching? Thank god?

Anyway I hope your ex-girlfriend will pull through or at least manage. (I know this sounds like empty words, but I want to believe that I mean it.)

Thanks for sharing this with us.

If the game saved someones life, I believe the writers of KS have done their crafts well, even if their works can't be considered a masterpiece.

Mind if I include this story in my paper? It touches on the central point I'm attempting to make.

The manly tears...they keep coming :cry: I think this hit me harder since I literally just redid Rin's route to get the neutral route.
Thank you for sharing this dude.
