Katawa Shoujo

Post by Kawazoe Taiki on January 29th 2012, 4:36 am



Katawa Shoujo is a bishōjo-style visual novel by Four Leaf Studios that tells a story of a young man and five young women living with varying disabilities. The game uses a traditional text and sprite-based visual novel model.
The majority of the story takes place at the fictional Yamaku High School for disabled children, located somewhere in modern Japan. Hisao Nakai, a normal boy, has his life turned upside down when a long-dormant Cardiac dysrhythmia forces him to move to a new school after a long hospitalization. Despite his difficulties, Hisao is able to find friends, and perhaps love.
The gameplay of Katawa Shoujo is choice-based, with the player reading through text and occasionally making decisions that impact events or dialogue within the story. Depending on the choices made by the player, the story branches into a path chronicling Hisao's developing relationship with one of the five heroines.

I personally doubted this very heavily when it was first released but quickly fell in love with every aspect of it the more I played it. I recommend this to anyone who loves reading a good story, or enjoy visual novels at all.

I really do love everything about this game.. I prefer men but even I can appreciate the pure sincerity of the choices you can make toward achieving a young man's diamond in the rough.

Good on the creators for making a game with a topic such as this, and on you for making a thread to showcase it.

I really do recommend this game to any fans of the dating-sim genre, or if you're looking for a new experience.

It sounds like an interesting game as I am a fan of games where you make choices and those choices affect how the story goes.

You can get with Kenchi who is a male anti-feminist. Although most of those paths end terribly <<

One thing I found funny were the photographic backgrounds slightly unfocused, haha

Though, I'm thoroughly enjoying this game. I didn't play a lot of visual novels (this one is my second, I think), but I can say that it's really interesting, and manages to put a new look even on cliches. I only started it briefly yesterday, but nevertheless it's pretty good and atmospheric. The music is nice also.

Thanks for posting it, KT, I've seen it both on the boards and in some blogs, but this thread was that final nudge to make me actually play it.

So it seems Hanako is 100% of first choices, lol
After I complete her line, I'll probably go the Rin, and then Shizuna line, with no exact sequence

The first act is just a prelude where you meet all the main characters. Then it branches out, and continues

I'm at Act 3 right now

There's 4 acts+prelude for each character, meaning there the Prelude, the first act which decide which girl you go for, then 3 acts in which you hang with them. If you f*ck up, you get a bad ending. If you do good, happy ending which always seems to be carrying on with your future with said girl. Some have neutral endings, and some have different paths you can take to branch out the story further and unlock more CG's and Scenes.

Kenji ending was surprising. You get it because you don't draw the attention of any of the girls.

There should be a good one. After you finish Act 1, you should try saving in separate savegames for every choice. It should make backtracking easier.
