Ukagaka Hub

If a technological feat is possible, man will do it. Almost as if it's wired into the core of our being.

An Ukagaka (伺か), also known as a Ghost, is a type of desktop toy from the early 2000s. Normally a Ghost is a character, or set of characters, that sit on your desktop and keep you company. If you'd like to know more, please check out this page from the English community wiki: Beginner's Guide

I'm a Ghost dev myself! I've published three Ghosts (and worked on many more), and know two Ghost coding languages (Kawari and YAYA). The English community has used primarily YAYA, so Kawari is a new curiosity. I'm currently working on creating a fully-fleshed Kawari Ghost template, using a middleware style.


These are my currently published Ghosts (or Ghost accessories) intended to be used for fun.

Development Tools

As a developer for Ukagakas, and one which is breaching new SHIORI that the community has not yet used, I have created various "things" for development purposes. I also am currently working on a project of running Kawari's documentation through machine translation. If you'd like to check my progress, please take a look at Kawari: Machine Translated.

In spite of the reputation of machine translation, I oversee and edit all of the translations, cross-reference, and do quite a lot of research for the project. So please do not doubt it. It's no substitute for a professional translation, but it will definitely do the job for learning Kawari. (I did not have the liberty of this edited version myself while learning!)
