Q: What is Kishi Kawaii?
A: You don't know? Why are you here? *grin* It's a multi-ending RPG; you
play an orphan girl who, after being turned out of the orphanage at 18, heads
over to the next town to seek her destiny. It's sort of like the Princess
Maker series of games. (And, if you needed to ask, see the next question.)
Q: I have the regular version, where do I get the Deluxe version?
If you got the Deluxe version directly from Hanako, http://www.hanakogames.com/ckd.shtml is offering a Deluxe upgrade for $5.
You can get the Deluxe demo here and buy the full version
(And you can get the demo and full versions of the original Cute Knight here and here. (Yay commissions! *bounce*!)
Q: How do I play?
Depending on what you do, your various stats are raised and lowered. Some
stats are special - Dream and Sin have significant effects that I won't explain
here (if you're curious, they're detailed in the walkthrough on gamezebo, but there be spoilers there.)
Q: Is it 'Cute Knight' or 'Kishi Kawaii'?
Either, 'Kishi Kawaii' is 'Cute Knight' in Japanese.
Q: When is Cute Knight 2 coming out?
A: I don't know! The author says 'maybe sometime', but she's working on a
new game (Which I'm helping test! Yay!) and won't start Kishi 2 until after
Fatal Hearts is finished. An enhanced version, Cute Knight Deluxe,
with better graphics and some new features, is now available online and
in stores (see above)
Q: Is there a Linux version?
A: YES! Download Cute Knight Deluxe/Linux demo free or Buy Cute Knight Deluxe for Linux. And I whined for it!
Q: Is there a Mac version?
A: Also yes. Buy Cute Knight Deluxe for Mac or download a free demo.
Q: Does the Mac version work on older Macs?
A: The Mac version works on Tiger and Leopard. It does not work on older
Macs as far as I know.
Q: Can I use the Windows version under Wine?
A: The lofi Windows version will run on Wine; the normal Windows version
won't. The Linux version runs better under Linux than the lofi one does.
Q: Can I help test Kishi 2 when it starts?
A: Probably not, I'm SPECIAL! :P
Er, I don't actually know, you'll need to ask
Q: Help, I got all the endings but one, and it's really really impossible to get!
Really old versions have a bug where you can't get one of the endings. If you're stuck trying to get Bodybuilder, save right before your birthday at the end of the game, hit F9. A dialog box will come up. Enter 'global.exer=global.exercise' (without the quotes) and then your points will be counted correctly.
Q: Are there any cheat codes?
A: If you've pushed all the buttons, you'll notice that F9 brings up a dialog
box - enter 'global.gold = 1337' (without the quotes) into that box
to get 1337 gold, mon! You can change other stats that way, too...
Also, the at the fair, the trader's items are randomly decided. So if you save
before going to him, and he doesn't have anything Nifty, just reload and try
Q: Where can I find a crack for Cute Knight?
A: *sigh* You suck. *grin* Besides, it wouldn't work - the demo doesn't have
whole game data, only the part that is actually playable in the demo; if you
cracked it, you'd be able to play longer, but you wouldn't be able to get
to any endings not in the demo.
Q: Hey, you're lying, I found a crack on fileshare...
A: No, that's a worm; I don't know what it will do to your computer, but
nothing good. Either the worm's author gave it a list of games to
impersonate or it watches all searches for 'something crack' and responds to
them with 'Something_Crack.zip'. And you still suck. =)
Q: I have a question that's not in this list!
A: Try emailing me or looking on answers.yahoo.com.
