KS inspired project

Post by kazenokize » Sun Oct 28, 2012 2:35 pm

I hope this is not breaking any rules, but I don't think it is.
Anyways, I am one of the big fans of KS, and made all my friends play it since I wouldn't stop talking about it!
Now we have a university project wich I gave them the idea of base it on KS.
We decided to try to make it something closer to a VN, and we already have many many ideas!
Well I'll cut to the chase. For the first part of the project, our teacher asked us to hand in interviews, the more the better.
Apparently the idea is to get to know those who would be interested in our "product", and I instantly thought about you guys!
So I will just put the interview here and if any of you have time to answer, it would really help me :) You can answer only what you want, that's ok too.
Thank you very much in advance! And if this is against any rule, I understand if the post is deleted and apologize.

I don't think this sort of thing is against the rules, and I'll gladly answer.

1. Name:
Tyler Jackson

2. Gender:
Male

3. Age:
While normally forthcoming with this, I don't want to say publicly. If it's important information I can tell you privately.

4. What is the estimate amount of time you spend on your computer:
These days? About 24 hours/week. More on break. And WAY more if I had my way.

5. Do you read books often?
5.1. If so, how many per year?
Not as often as I once did. I've read maybe a half dozen this year of my own accord, but two or three is probably more standard.

6. What kind of movie do you like?
Plot is the most important, but to be more specific I tend to like some action. Comedy is good, but I don't like comedy movies. V for Vendetta, Sherlock Holmes, Wild Wild West, these are some of my favourites off the top of my head.

7. What kind of music do you like?
This is a most excellent question. About half of my library is electronica (dance, trance, rave, etc.). I have some classic/orchestral pieces (think KS soundtrack), and the rest is pretty general rock or miscellaneous.

8. Have you ever had any contact with a drug user?
Yes.

9. What do you think about the consume of alcoholic beverages?
I don't disagree with it, but I don't understand the appeal of drinking so much you get wasted, or of drinking alone. In moderation and with friends, I say.

10. Are you used to playing computer games?
Depends. I'm primarily a console gamer, so I don't play much on my PC, per se.

10.1. What kind of games?
My introduction to gaming was Halo, but I've come to love videogames first and foremost as a medium where you partake in a story. Mass Effect has been my thing for a while.

10.2. Have you ever played an RPG/Visual Novel? If not, would you?
Katawa Shoujo was my first. I do plan on giving some others a shot, but I don't know how many others can match quality of content with quality of English, since many are written in Japanese.

10.3. Which ones?
From the "reccomend a VN" thread, the ones I plan on looking at (and thus might play) include Narcissu, Yume Miru Kusuri, KiraKira, Edelweiss, Wanko To Kurasou, Snow Sakura, Sekien no Inganock, Ever17, True Remembrance, Swan Song, and Quartett.

11. Do you prefer big cities or the country side?
I don't much prefer one or the other, but I've never spent much time in either. Ironically, I hate the place I've lived my whole life, and that's a generic suburbia. But to answer the question better, while the countryside can be nice, I tend to be restless. The idea of the world around me being quiet is terrifying.

12. Do you prefer going out during day time or night time?
I like the nighttime hours better, but it's more accurate to say I don't like full daylight. If it's nice and overcast and blowy out, that's perfect.

13. What’s your education level?
I am currently a Junior in High School (American 11th Grade) and I plan to attend a four-year college.

14. What do you do on your spare time?
Computers. Video Games. And thinking. I don't get out as much as I really should.

15. Do you prefer national or international music?
Trick question. I don't have a preference, and this largely has to do with the fact that I was almost raised by the internet, so the concept of nationalism disgusts me. Patriotism is the conviction that your country is the best because you were born in it.

16. Do you pay attention to the lyrics?
A lot of my music doesn't have lyrics, but when it does, yes, I do. It's obvious why I would do so in english, but when they're in other languages, I pay attention beacuse I am fascinated by other languages. For example, I know more or less the translation of "Alles Neu" (Peter Fox, German), while I really only know the gist of "Blackjack" (Megurine Luka, Japanese).

1. Name (optional) : Joseph
2. Gender: Male
3. Age: 26
4. What is the estimate amount of time you spend on your computer: Anywhere from 2 to 12 hours a day. I use it for school (going for an IT degree), gaming, and social media.
5. Do you read books often?: Not terribly often, no. I do read some comics and manga, but BOOK books are rare.
5.1. If so, how many per year?: Maybe 3 to 5.
6. What kind of movie do you like?: Good ones. But seriously, a good plot and actors do the trick for me. I enjoy non-mindless action, drama, a little smart comedy here and there, and suspense. I do NOT like horror, stupid comedy or shaky-cam action.
7. What kind of music do you like?: Personal favorite genres include techno / trance / house, metal and orchestral music. I do NOT like most rap / hip-hop (though from time to time it can be quite good), nor do I like pretty much anything that's considered pop music - all same-y sounding garbage to me.
8. Have you ever had any contact with a drug user?: Contact? Sure. I used to work with a bunch of potheads and a few worse. Never done drugs myself, though.
9. What do you think about the consume of alcoholic beverages?: Everything in moderation. I don't enjoy drinking much myself, but I have no qualms with it so long as you aren't driving while drunk or going home to beat your wife.
10. Are you used to playing computer games?: All the time.
10.1. What kind of games?: Favorites would include fighting games, action / FPS, and RPGs, though I don't have as much time anymore as I used to for the "long ones".
10.2. Have you ever played an RPG/Visual Novel? If not, would you?: Of course I have. And if I hadn't, I'm always open to new experiences.
10.3. Which ones?: Katawa Shoujo comes to mind, of course... beyond that, a few odd hentai games, but nothing of much quality or note.
11. Do you prefer big cities or the country side?: Cities. The dark, lonely nighttime country frightens me.
12. Do you prefer going out during day time or night time?: I prefer dusk, when the weather is a bit more bearable and the sun isn't oppressing my eyeballs.
13. What’s your education level?: High school diploma, currently enrolled in college.
14. What do you do on your spare time?: Go to school, mostly. I also play Magic: the Gathering with friends once or twice a week, and I am the host of a Magic podcast as well. Other than that... vidya gaems.
15. Do you prefer national or international music?: Either is fine, so long as it's got a good tune and doesn't annoy me.
16. Do you pay attention to the lyrics?: Depends. Usually not so much, I'm more interested in the sounds than the words.
