Are we seriously making light of the sexual harassment of a crippled 8-year-old??

WE are not.
Welcome to the Katawa Shoujo Forums.
I'd prefer NOT to welcome people that want to talk about that sort of thing. Frankly, I'd rather show them the door.

I would have coded the thing, and hoped that someone who can write worth a damn was helping me, because I certainly can't.

Agreed, reading that article was horrific, and I'm pretty sure that this is just one of the places that you just don't go. I could go into a tirade about this, but I don't think it's the place.

But it sucks. BAD.

I agree... please don't do that again. We like to get weird here, but some things just aren't funny.

On topic, I probably would have made Lilly a bit of a daredevil beneath the polite, subdued exterior. Her description in the original image begs for some spice.

Personally, I would have made Lilly untilise echolocation instead of that pansy-ass fucking cane of hers.

Depending on my mood, it could vary from a sensible tongue click to a full-on bat screech
Like stupid, silly doodles with no point? You've come to the right place, friend :^)
I also occasionally write oneshots. Why not have a skimread?

Why not just give her Daredevil's radar sense while you're at it? Wait...
Hold on...
Okay, I know what I would have done if I made the game. It would still be set in a high school for the disabled. There would still be the usual teen romance drama. But at some point on every girl's route, you'd find out she had superpowers and fought crime on the side. Lilly, as mentioned, would have radar sense, Hanako would be able to turn invisible, Emi would have super-speed, Rin would be telekinetic, and Shizune would have sonic powers (which she would be immune to, of course.)
There wouldn't be a harem ending. There would, however, be a forming-a-superhero-team ending.

All you need is start her off with Daniel Kish.

0.0 I did not read the article. I should refrain from posting after a late night from now on. Yea, for sure.

So you posted an article with literally negative amounts of relevance to the topic without even reading it?

If I made the game, I'd have given Kenji a full route. And made it canon. 8)
I love the interpretation of Pac-Man where he's a just a lowly worker retrieving golf balls left all over the course by the rich masters and the ghosts are all previous workers who got conked on the head and killed by incoming golf balls in the line of duty.

I don't think I could have even created a character like Kenji.

It takes a special lack of sanity, for sure, but I think I could've managed. :lol:

Looking at some posters here(myself included), plenty of people could pull that off.
I myself would write Kenji as a crusader against all furniture worldwide because of this article. (#7)
