Lol nice one Aura.

Also, thanks for the interesting blog post... when I read the last question at the end of the post... I was somewhat stumped, I hadn't thought of an answer to that question since my university admission interview (which is about 4 yrs ago)
"If Hisao took one thing away from his time at Yamaku it was the fact that people who have handicaps don't actually have handicaps. People like Lilly and Shizune are more able-bodied and well-adjusted than most of the kids at Hisao's old high school. He shook his head slightly. No, students at Yamaku weren't handicapped; everyone else was." - WetCrate

I think I should've clarified when I posted mine on IRC. I'm not INSPIRED by you guys. I'm INFLUENCED. Inspiration is... a whole different thing altogether.

2001 a space odyssey and Yume Nikki had absolutely no plot whatsoever. Not that it detracts from their stunning visuals, but can you even have that kind of visual direction in a eroge visual novel?

So nice to see a deeper understand of all you devs who contributed. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, then that makes this thing a dictionary of 4LS.

A nice exercise and fun for us to see, but it isn't like this is the "ultimate encapsulation of 4LS" or anything. If they had done this 5 years previously I bet it'd reflect different influences. I expect the map would look much different 5 years in the future also. After all, if you aren't growing and changing you are stagnating and dieing.

Yeah, picking out some of Aura's influences is pretty easy, but seriously... Why Matti Syrjä? Or more like: please, could you at least censor his face out? *grin*
Nothing to be seen here. Do check out my little dabbling in the art of words, though.

The "Mummified Corpses" part interests me greatly.
I hear it's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on Hari-kari rock.

The size of the Murakami influence gives me great hope for the finished product. That is all.

I was thinking that as well... I think its just a snapshot of what influenced the involved devs as of now... like you said, it is dynamic, ppl get boredof certain things over time and tend to become influenced by other things instead, its how we change.

What would have been interesting was making this influence map at the beginning and at the end of KS development, while seeing how writers/devs influences changed over time... I can imagine the changes would be for the worst after working on KS for so long

What would be even better is if they did an influence map (after release) of the other works (VN's, books, anime, films) that influenced the plot/characters/art in KS
