Learned of its existence through /a/ several years ago. I didn't want to pick up an incomplete VN, so I didn't play the trial and never took part in the community. Suddenly, on January this year, KS became the flavor of the month on /a/ after it got released. Then I thought, "why not?" and picked it up after I finished playing Yume Miru Kusuri.
Mmm, crispy!

Funny, I heard about it from internet radio.
"A funny, touching and awesome game made by handful of people has been released."-ME: nahhhh..
"(...)It's a visual novel(...)"-ME:Naaahhh, never played visual novel and I'm not interested".
"(...)You can date with virtual girls(...)"-ME:...
"(...)Game ws in production for 5 years, like cave story!(...)"-DOWNLOAD.
Seriously, KS was first VN I ever played. :D
Paths done (in order): Hanako, Lilly, Shizune, Emi, Rin
Hardest decision so far: Agree with Lilly or trust my own judgement in Hanako path.

I read the kokatu article http://kotaku.com/5905626/that-game-abo ... ld-play-it back in april / may whilst browsing my feedler and thought I would give it a go.

Playing VNs like there's no tomorrow now and loving it.

I found out about through Mike Inel's constant posting of fan art for the game. Needless to say, I was pretty happy when I saw the cut scenes :)

The first time I heard about KS was when I encountered this video review on YouTube, made by a guy called Asymmetrisch. When I had watched several of his other reviews on various manga series before, I noticed that he evidently owns a similar taste for ecchi stories with some meaning behind them as I do, so I decided it couldn't hurt to check out this one as well - and then I realized that I just had been introduced to one of my favourite computer games.

By now there's a review of the full version, too.

Oddly enough, I heard about this game on the Escapist as well but it was in this Critical Miss comic. I clicked on the link to this site, read all the background and downloaded the game. After a few false starts, I finally found the time to play all the way through. I was so happy with Emi finish that I stayed up far too late for several weeks so I could do them all.

It's led me into the world of VNs which I'd never really known about. There are now over a dozen on my machine, waiting for me to steal time from my sleep cycle. Still I have a hunch that none of them will seem as delightful as this game....

Not the best way to learn about VNs, but i'm grateful either way.
Same for me. I was never into anime, manga or anything like that. So im really thankful that ChilleChaos introduced me to KS.

It was all thanks to this fandub of Hisao's first meeting with Hanako that I stumbled upon YouTube (after watching the user's cute voice-acting shenanigans :3).

I'm so thankful I got curious and downloaded KS. Thank you, LilyPichu!

Well I discovered it from a picture on facebook my friend posted with Lilly's line Healthy Adolescent Sex Drive, so I thought I would check it out. Funny thing I think this VN made the genre from a rare existence in America to a somewhat more known single handedly

No one, I discovered the game partially because I was looking for a freeware VN, and because the memes related to it caught my attention.

I saw a few posts about it on RPS and Kotaku, not the best places to get into VNs but I worked none the less.

I was browsing for a new VN after I finished FSN in 2008-09 I think. Maybe less, back when ACT I is still 'ACT I' (without v1, v2, v3, v4, etc.)

Somehow, I stumbled upon KS and thought 'hey, what is this? Seems legit' so I downloaded ACT I and ended up in Shizune's route.
My eyes just became wide open and I went '...now this, I have to follow'.

and so I did.
They say they hate Shizune? What is this? BLASPHEMY!
