|This guide is a teaching aid for the game. I use embedded video and hoverable links to explain every concept about KI from the ground up.
|I might use language familiar to Street Fighter players sometimes. But if that's not you, don't panic. This guide is useful for players of all experience levels.
|How to move around, play basic offense and defense, and why you might want to do these things. You should probably start here.
|Sometimes you get to do extra flashy stuff. I explain that here.
