me neither. :mrgreen:
Hmm... well then, seal of approval.

exactly. but I think a lot of people only know VNs 'cause of h-games, so they expect they'll all be nothing but UNF-UNF-UNF. hell, I was the same way when I first heard about KS. but it's all good. it just makes explaining that it's not an h-game harder. totally worth it, though. :mrgreen:

amazing how preference changes now that the game's actually out.
Akira/Hanako for the win. Meiko/Nurse for even more win. Miki/Misha for win that goes BEYOND THE IMPOSSIBLE.

I was thinking about this as well. The project may have started as an eroge, but this whole fanbase is so gaga over the first chapter, which has no sex. We all care so much about it because of how colorful, relatable, and lovable the characters are, not for the promise of fapping material. And yet, almost everyone who knows about it, knows about it as being an H game, when it really isn't at this point. Hell, it's so lovely that I want to tell everyone I know about it, yet I have to show better judgment since it's classified the way it is.

My one one big comment, thank you so much for making an OSX port. I was so happy to see that I didn't have to reboot/use Crossover to play KS. It really shows that you give a damn. Thank you.

... Although, I'm not sure if the game makes me more or less lonely. I guess it depends on how down to earth I'm feeling when I play.

Hey,

I saw the article about Katawa Shoujo on Kotaku today, and it intrigued me into taking a closer look at your project. I just got done playing threw Act 1 and I have to say I'm very impressed. I eagerly await the final release of the game.

Best of luck to the development team in finishing this project.

WHAT?! KS was posted on Kotaku?!

BRACE YOURSELVES SOLDIERS!


EDIT: I just read the article and I must say it was the best KS-related news story I've ever read. I'm kinda surprised honestly. Most of the comments seem non-jerky too (except one guy criticizing it and even stating he hasn't played it >_>;)

EDIT 2: turns out most if not all the jerky comments are the early ones...

Well, what do you know, what they say about publicity has some merit. Though most of the people who read that article will think this is a 4chan orgy of memes. Hell, I even did when I first heard about it. I say let the game speak for itself. It is just that good.
It's a good thing Shizune is deaf, she is the only one who can stand (not) hearing "Wahaha~!" over and over.

Came from the article, myself. After reading it, I didn't believe that something beautiful could come from 4Chan, but I stand very, very much corrected. Excellent game with excellent content. Loveable characters, high quality writing, and great art. I couldn't throw enough praise at this game to my friends, who I've now got obsessing over it.

Desperately longing for the full version and more Hanako.

"in hospital" is fine. Compare "in jail".

"In hospital" sounds very strange. It would have to be "hospitalized" or "in the hospital"

"In jail"/"In prison" are special phrases which lack an article, as is "at school", for example. You can't just say it applies to every locational noun. "In airport", "at mall", et cetera, are all grammatically incorrect.

Reason: Just checked through the script again. That one was fixed already, but got rid of it elsewhere. Thanks all. :)

Well... actually while we acknowledge that the games origins come from 4chan, the people who are actually making this game aren't anonymous, or channers really. 4chan isn't a good place to develop things. And I'll agree that something this beautiful can't come from 4chan, and it didn't.

Read this if you want to know how the game was really developed:

Sure, but I'm pretty sure "hospital" belongs in the first category.

No. Try saying it aloud.

"Oh god! My heart! Take me to hospital!"
"Honey my water just broke! We have to get to hospital."
"Yeah, Jim broke his leg, he's in hospital right now."

Do these sound correct?
