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.
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
"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
