Just under 17 hours until midnight Eastern Standard Time.

Now I'm annoyed that I don't have physical therapy tomorrow, because that means that I'll be doing all my exercise in the morning, which will delay my playing of the game. :?
I found out about Katawa Shoujo through the forums of Misfile. There, I am the editor of Misfiled Dreams.

Completed: 100%, including bonus picture. Shizune>Emi>Lilly>Hanako>Rin

Hmm, haven't checked the 4LS blog in a while, let's see how they're doingHOLY SHIT MAN!

Wow, massive congratulations to you guys. Actually completing a project that was started by strangers coming together on a web forum is amazing. The amount of determination you guys must have is pretty great. I'm really hoping that you've all got something out of this that you can continue to use in your lives. Hell, maybe some of you even want to stick together and keep 4 Leaf Studios going. I know that I, for one, would be megas interested in seeing you guys do something new, especially if it was a commercial project.

Not to get too far ahead of ourselves, but if Katawa Shoujo is well received, you could even consider doing an alpha-funding type project, like minecraft. That is, let people purchase the game early for a steep discount, and give the early purchasers some sort of demo/preview of the upcoming game. Obviously it'd have to be done pretty differently, since this is such a different type of game, but you might be able to figure SOMETHING out. ;) Desura (think Steam, but smaller-scale) has started up a pretty successful Alpha-Funding project, with a whole section of their store just for games like that. They'd be a good contact if any of you are interested, I bet. (http://www.desura.com/groups/desura/new ... ndie-games - summary, http://www.desura.com/contact?subject=Alphafund+me - contact)

Meanwhile, of course, I can't way to try out this game. Ummm... I'm trying to think of more specific things to say, but I really just can't wait to see this story!

Hm, yep, just in case this is some sort of prank. Now I'm ready.
I thought about that too, but then I concluded it'd be too devilish, even for the devs. Although It kinda makes me want to see what would happen, surely the amount of rage around here would be unprecedent.

...Not giving you ideas guys, please continue with your current schedule.
If the Devs did do that, they'd be the greatest trolls since that one Yamaku Man thread. I'd probably be laughing so hard at first, but then I'd probably cry for a while.

LESS THAN TWELVE HOURS. So glad I have rehearsal later to pass the time before I ready my body for awesomeness. Good thing I don't start class again until the tenth.

Alas, this is truly fantastic. I remember playing the demo version and thinking "wow, this would be such a great VN/galgame/whatever you want to call it." Then, a couple short weeks ago, my friend posted the link to this blog post, and I marked the date on my brand new wall calendar. <3 I can't wait to see Lilly's path! <3 Congratulations to making an idea a complete and wonderfully executed reality!

I can't believe it will be out tomorrow I have been following katawa shoujo for a little over a year but since I never used my forum account it was gone so I made a new one just to post this. Even though I'm still in school atm. Thank you devs for giving this to us. -TrueSorrow 8)

It's countdown time! I can honestly say I haven't been this excited for the release of a game since Starcraft II. Thank you very much devs for everything. :D
