Seriously it hurts my eyes, even TK17 looks better and it's lmost 20 years old. I just never give a chance to any of these games. I did once for the TK8000 game cause I love Solvalley (made with Honey Select, outdated as fuck technically, but looking 100 times better than Koikatshit) and that was the first and last time. If the guy who made me appreciate a HS 1 game art can't make me like Koikatsu art, then it's over for everyone else.

And to stay on real time rendering stuff, Honey Select or VAM destroy Koikatsu. You don't even need to know DAZ or how to draw, or AI.

I understand a small number of people will play any game regardless of the art, if it has the specific rare fetish they want and don't find enough. But I don't see any type of game made with Koikatsu that can't be made with any other engine, besides ugly cheap generic looking anime with super limited facial expressions.

Anyways if you're a dev and you're making a game please don't use Koikatsu, it sucks.
I am from the ministry of good taste, and soon we'll throw you in prison if you persist in using that rubbish engine to make art.

But seriously, apart from people being blind, is there a specific reason to use it ? Like you can run it on a potato ? or it's easier to learn than Honey Select ?

I think because it's a copy-past thing: as they don't have a talent for drawing and don't associate with those who do, they use it as an easy and time-saving stuff.
Maybe it's for another reason, but i really doubt it.

I totally agree, koikatsu sucks, its ugly without depth and seems to be draw by my 7-years-old nephew (he's doing good with drawing). Even i said that some machine-art stuffs are better.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but I feel like it works just like Honey Select or TK17 : you create a character, choose body, face, clothes etc, then you pose it, move the camera where you want and take a screenshot. You even have abunch of pre made poses and assets from the community to use.
So if I'm correct about how it works, then why use it ? It's not more difficult to use HS1 or 2.

Or is it even easier than HS somehow ?

Maybe you're just not into the anime style. I will agree that most koikatsu games are kind of trash but there are a few good ones. The issue for me with koikatsu games is that most of the look the same. Most devs just use the default stuff that comes with the game and never really expand on it. TK8000 for example, he makes custom animations for his game and there are other devs that create other custom stuff like hairstyles, clothes, etc.

There are couple heavy-hitters like Corrupted Kingdoms 10k+ month, Hero's harem guild was 5k plus, champion-of-realms too(I think might not be koikatsu). Lessons in love was 10k+ at one point for sure.

I'm missing couple harem ones.
