In their defense, the parts they played through were not all that serious/dramatic yet, and I know I for one didn't know how serious this game would be until i got at a serious point in the game.
Uh...The game starts off with a heart attack and a depressing upheaval of some guy's whole life.

:lol: As someone who's played a few VNs (granted, more perverse than this one), this thing punched me in the face with its seriousness from the start. :lol:

Considering that most mainstream game devs these days more or less tiptoe around their audience like we're made of china, I found such a punch in the face quite refreshing.

I actually started KS thinking it was some cripple emotional porn, before i even saw Iwanako i found myself caught in the story and was quite surprised at how well made and honest it was. I don't really play VNs by the way. KS is my first and is probable that Analogue will be my second.

I wasn't aware there was any tiptoeing. :lol:

It has to do with things like obvious-ass tutorialish stuff for supposedly-adult games, constantly-lowering difficulty levels, and other things sprinkled whether light- or heavy-handedly to ensure that general audiences won't be offended by them. I... I'm probably not explaining it very well. It just has to do with the modern video game industry, I guess. I'm studying game design so maybe I'm more conscious of it than I realize other people are... or, maybe I'm cynical and hypercritical. However you want to see it. *shrug*

Nah. The twisted humor comes from the censor. :twisted:
