<Aura> would you squeeze a warm PVC bottle between your thighs and call it "manaka-chan"
<Suriko> I would do it if it wouldn't be so hard to explain to my parents

Congrats!
Trip across the Atlantic would be a bit difficult though.
Any of the devs going to be there?

Seconded, even if I live on the other side of our small country's central lake >_>

I just checked, I'm literally on the opposite side of the Ijssel lake compared to Haarlem O.o

freakin' sweet, congrats to all the devs for this. getting recognized is awesome, and KS getting some coverage as an indie game is awesome too. seems like a lot of people think VNs are only porn games, but "indie games" is a huge damn category, so it's great to see the game in this.

hopefully some people will play the demo and realize it's well-made and go talk about how good the writing and art is, and get reactions aside from "you get to do what to a crippled girl?" :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.

Oh, nice for KS to be one of the featured projects for sure. I wonder if KS is the example of, "How the f*** did they make this work with so many people involved, from all over, and development taking such a long period of time??!!? The project should have self-destructed but look at this lovely demo!" :mrgreen:

Man, I wish I could go to see it also. Because of starting my new job last month I couldn't even go down to Anime Expo; let alone flying cross country to New York. Time and cash constraints are the suck. :cry:

Hmm, pretty weird.

Here's an article about Babycastles that gives you an idea of what it's like:

Congratulations!

Even if congratulations are the obvious thing here.

Sorry if this is redundant.

In any case, congratulations!

To answer question, not me.
