About Kho

Four-Letter Word is a gay, furry-themed Visual Novel for adults, based on a comic of the same name. Follow the stories of Asher Copeland and Colby Anders, two one-time lovers on the path of discovery of what they want; whether that ends up being each other or something else entirely is up to you and the decisions you make! While this Visual Novel serves as a continuation of the first chapter of the comic, it's not necessary to read it before jumping right in, but the comic is still available on FurAffinity, for those curious.

Four-Letter Word started out as my take on a romance story. All too often, these stories only focused on two people meeting, quickly falling in love, and culminating in the start of a relationship that we are left to assume ended happily ever after. But, how often do real relationships end this way? Four-Letter Word wanted to examine a relationship where "the honeymoon is over"; where most romance stories would have long been over, this one begins. In an attempt to make both characters more sympathetic, what was supposed to be defined relationship turned into an ambiguous "what are we to each other?" situation which ended badly because of the most common problem in any relationship; miscommunication. What it aims to be now is an exploration of how love means so many different things to so many different people, and Asher and Colby's journey towards finding out what it means to them.

Creating a Visual Novel is a lot of work, and I'm just one man! Aside from the sound effects, (which are public domain) I'm creating all assets - visual and audio - from scratch, and doing all the writing and coding. As you can imagine, all of this takes a lot of time and energy! It's work that I'm quite passionate about, and I'm excited to share it with all of you, but I can't do it alone; I need your help! You won't be left empty-handed, either. As thanks for your contributions, you will receive patron rewards to show my appreciation! Since I am the only person working on this project, all rewards are things that will either not take too much development time away from the project, or add substantial content for everyone to enjoy. After all, you wouldn't be supporting this project if you didn't want to see more of it!

Patrons can expect to see a new build on the first of every month! (Starting on March 1st, 2015) Patron rewards that aren't contained within updates of the Visual Novel itself (such as voting polls) can expect to see them updated on the same or next day. Public builds will be released two weeks later.

Early builds for patrons will be in patron-only posts on the activity feed. Public builds can be found on itch.io. You can also get updates through my FurAffinity page or my Twitter!
