midwinter : (18 August 2017 - 04:07 PM) I think it's because people are starting to talk about Halloween and Yuletide, so I'm getting into that end-of-the-year frame of mind
Hex : (19 August 2017 - 02:55 PM) I could set this year's up soon if you'd like?  I was thinking of starting earlier as well.   :icon_tengai:
midwinter : (19 August 2017 - 09:37 PM) Oh man, my heart is saying yes but my head is saying, how much earlier are we talking? Cause I think even starting in November we had people sign up and then forget it was a thing
Rezz : (19 August 2017 - 10:24 PM) (I'm game for whenever)
Eisenalex : (19 August 2017 - 11:43 PM) Oh, christmas exchange. I'd like to participate, too.
Eisenalex : (19 August 2017 - 11:48 PM) and since I now "lost" my job, I'll have more time to actually work on stuff, lol.
Eisenalex : (20 August 2017 - 01:03 AM) Is anything wrong with the forum? Because my browser keeps giving me warnings about it for quite a while now.
midwinter : (20 August 2017 - 10:08 AM) I'm not sure :\ I haven't been getting warnings, and I think it might be because the forum software is out of date
midwinter : (20 August 2017 - 10:08 AM) but the main site did get hacked once, so idk
Hex : (20 August 2017 - 10:21 AM) I think we could be okay if we set up the sidebar to promote the exchange, so people won't forget.  I could post the sign up topic today if you guys like?
Eisenalex : (20 August 2017 - 10:22 AM) Ah, ok. I sent the FB page a message a while ago but didn't get a response, so I thought I could just give it a try without it being too dangerous for me, lol.
Hex : (20 August 2017 - 07:33 PM) Or not.
Rezz : (20 August 2017 - 09:23 PM) Or not
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 12:59 PM) Whoa, I just heard Yashuu say "You might as well give up" to Kei - I don't think I've ever heard that before
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:00 PM) You tell him, Ms Kuze
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:42 PM) Ohhhh
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:42 PM) Okay, Miku's first crawlspace, the bodies at the back behind the gratings are the bodies in the entrance to the Bell Hallway
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:43 PM) That is cool, I never realised that before
Hex : (22 August 2017 - 05:16 PM) :o !
Eisenalex : (23 August 2017 - 03:20 PM) The Dreadout games are currently in the lowest tier of the Humble Bundle, if anybody here is interested.

I'm posting this here instead of Deep Crimson Butterfly because she was originally going to be in the PS2 game, and the character she ended up becoming is incompatible with the original vision for her.

 

Could the original concept for Kureha (A warning for Mio as an echo to what she will become if she fails and would become in one of the scrapped endings) have still worked in the story with Itsuki still having the role that he does?  They said that Kureha's concept became Itsuki's character but it sounds like she wouldn't have played the same role that he did.  Could the story have still worked if she was include as she was conceptualized, while still keeping Itsuki and his impact on the storyline in the game?

Do you mean, could they have worked simultaneously?  I don't think so.  Mio's interactions with both of them are important for their reveals later on, so having two white-haired Remainings encourage you throughout the game would be repetitive.  If you were asking which suits the game better, I would say Itsuki for having Ryozo return, the escape plot and actually knowing Yae and Sae for the misnaming mindscrew and angst later on.   

 

The more I think about it, the timey-wimey twist with Mio doesn't do Kureha's current character any justice.  I much prefer she be her own independent character with the new lore and mind-reading than stuck on her tod waiting to make sense in a reveal you might not get.   :P

Yeah, I meant as the original concept for Kureha fitting into the story alongside Itsuki.

 

In that case though...gosh dang it why didn't she get a bigger role in DCB.

Their intention initially was to keep her story entirely within side material, so I think we got lucky.  Like everything else, the additions were bare bones.
