Only Mostly Dead

For the past several months, no progress at all has been made on the VN. I just got back to coding it, and I'm only doing a little bit at a time. The next update might take awhile, as we need a few sprites to be made before we can make Volume II, specifically the Yakuza, Dr.Sakura, the Student Council president, and others.

Good news though, the download links to the first volume have been fixed, although I do not know how long they will last. See the Volume I post for MD5 sums.

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

Mediafire links have stopped working (again), I will work on fixing them eventually.

The 4shared mirror links however, still function:

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

And if those fail as well, there's a link to a torrent. Click the following to open in your torrent client: magnet link

The torrent is of uncertain reliability, but will probably work faster than the hosted downloads.

Progress Update

For those of you who thought we were dead, we were never dead. Only resting.

The next release will contain up to chapter 9. We already have the script for everything up to chapter 10 done, and chapter 11 is in the works. Chapters 6-10 needs a good bit of spit and polish, and another sprite or two, and that should be done in time. Expect Volume II to be done soon!

In the meantime, we've gotten new screenwriters-in-training to help out and get chapters done even faster!

Until then, some more screenshots of what's to come!

Video version now available

Thanks to Oroboro, we now have a video version of the prologue, and more to come. This should be handy for those who don't want to bother with installing, or are on computers they don't own.

Volume I, released!

After quite some time and work, here's the first real release!

This is Volume I, covering the prologue through the first half of Chapter 5. Many thanks to all who participated in development and contributed help and material.

UPDATE 5/30/12: The download for this release has been updated to include a few bug fixes. Issues corrected include: SFX volume is now persistently settable, the plain/vanilla setting is back in the options screen, and whether or not to autoscroll the preview is now an option.

UPDATE 2013/06/19: Mediafire kicked us off for using multipart archives, so now we just have torrent files. On the bright side, we now don't have to worry about multipart archives anymore, since no file size limit.

The download is packaged as a multi-part RAR archive; make sure all the files are in the same folder, then unarchive the file 'KBDH-VN-1.01.part1.rar'.

If you still have the original Volume I release, the change patch containing only the files that have been altered or added are available here:

MD5 sum for the change patch:


When applying the patch, please ensure that the change patch is unzipped into the same directory that contains both your 'game' directory and the file 'KBDH-VN.exe', and that you choose to replace all files.

We're already hard at work on Volume II, and are still interested in recruiting more team members. If you think you can lend a hand, especially if you're an artist, or know one, we'd love to have you aboard.

If you need to know more, or just feel like chatting, feel free to pop into IRC at, channel #bdh-vn. Our forums are located here if you want to keep an eye on progress.

Enjoy the game, and stay tuned for what's to come!
