Can you imagine if we randomised the sprite sets so that every time you played KS, the sets representing each girl were swapped around?

Imagine if Shizune was represented by Rika sprites and Misha by Miki sprites or something like that. I'm trying to do that now, and it's giving me some truly wonderful ideas.

How so? I immediately ended up swapping Rin and Shizune, and it's giving me a rather large (though enjoyable) headache.

This thread is truly the /b/ of this board.
One page back we have Hanako masturbation and crusades, two pages back we have a discussion about waifus in pornography, now it's randomizing sprites for characters.

Swapping Rin with Shizune doesn't feel right.
Rin is Rin. Shizune is Shiichan. Imagine Shizune paiting... almost betting she is as good as Luffy from One Piece.

Katawa Roguelike. Awesome. :lol:

Even worse, randomized dialogue too...Stuttering Misha, rambling-text-box-covering-the-whole-screen Shizune...
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 have a theory behind that, Personally.

For the past 3 or so weeks now Katawa Shoujo has been getting ALOT of attention from r/gaming. http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/

Infact, Right now there is a post called "So he admits it" with a picture of Kenji saying if he were to kill someone he would push them off of a roof. So naturally..with 4 solid weeks of r/gaming interest...the game has gotten quite a bit of attention, More attention means more artists, More artists mean more R34 stuff :P

As well as normal fan-art too, But..still. The point stands lol

I also heard that all the attention actually crashed the KS website because so many people were downloading the game. Though I don't know if that's a rumor or not

This is enough. I've seen posts of Katawa Shoujo on 9gag. That's how I found out about it!
And lately /b/ has more waifu threads (filled with my lovely Hanako) than pony threads in /mlp/, so I can see where the attention came from.

Do the waifu threads on /b/ get as strange as the stuff on /mlp? I don't go to either site and am a little curious. And it's not purely because i want more Hanako artwork.

Well... lately /b/'s waifu threads consist mainly of anime's girl's pictures. Now and then a real photograph shows up. From KS, Hanako is always there. Some of the pictures are pretty nice. Others are just meh.

/mlp/ is just. Pure madness.
