Gotta love Key school uniforms. Personally I'm a fan of the more normal looking Clannad and Littler Busters! uniforms, but more outlandish clothes are good too.
The Kanon uniform may have been weirdly designed but it sure looked good.

Chihaya's uniform is the best though. Probably because the blazer matches her hair. Though the plaid skirt and thigh highs don't hurt either.

The low-light shading looks excellent. Another plus.

If I had to guess where Key has looked to improve the most, it would be backgrounds. The backgrounds for those CGs look so nice. An improvement over Little Busters.

^ I thought it wold have been better if only Kotori had that outfit than it would have been better I think. The backgrounds do look amazing Busters were amazing too. I can't wait for the music. One of the best points of KEY games.

I miss the Clannad style of art the detail in the hair was so nice. Since Busters the detail is coming back. But still that was my favorite point of Itaru's style.

... Considering Key's past stories regarding April 1st... I can't even call head or tails if it is just a troll, or a trojan horse, hiding the fact they -really- are planning for a 18+ version

But seriously...pink...

No. Rewrite will still be an all-ages game. This was definitely an April Fools joke. The official site has also added the confirmation for 'all-age' on their banner.

I was expecting a bit more for the update. The magazine scans have more than the site updates....I think there is too much Kud focus lol.

Well the website has been updated with more info now. There are two new characters revealed and the Story section has been filled out too. Specs are also available.

Some new magazine scans can be found here (NSFW material may or may not be found, enter at your own risk).

I'm quite excited for this now. Once again, Itaru Hinoue's iffy art style has grown on me. Although her faces may look glossy and lacking of detail, they are still definitely cute. Her male characters have become more handsome too.

Oh, and the background art and lighting is gorgeous.

I would credit that to the CG artists perhaps to the detail. But I like this style compared to busters. I wish they would do detail like in Clannad hair.

I'm so surprised they didn't even update the Rewrite page for cast. I wonder how many more characters they will have.

According to 主題歌生披露!V.I.P 第8回 クドわふたースペシャル生放送!, a live event showcasing Kud Wafter! and broadcast live on Smile Videos (NND), the limited edition of Kud Wafter! will include the maxi single for the OP, and a demo of Rewrite.

Never been one to pre-order limited editions of visual novels, or even buy them close to the release date. But a demo of Rewrite huh? This may require some consideration.

On the plus note, having a demo must mean it's close to finishing. Although the same thing could be said about Katawa Shoujo and it's been almost a year since their demo.

It really a nice marketing maneuver on Key/Visual Arts part. Probably some fans out there thinking: "I like Key games and Little Busters, but Kud was never really my favorite heroine. I'll just wait for Rewrite." People would buy it just for the demo. I know I might.

I would advise against comparing an Internet-based amateur work to a work by an official company. Four Leaf Studios is just contributing to the KS project when they can, which obviously isn't most of the time. Working for Key is a paying job, so Key employees can devote more of their time to Kud Wafter and Rewrite and whatever else they may be cooking up.

It's not too common for professional works to enter development hell; on the Internet, an elaborate work that doesn't get temporarily or permanently stuck in development hell is truly surprising.

I'm going to laugh when it's a 10 minute long demo like Little Busters' was.
