Katawa Shoujo

Yes, this is the best size I could find a picture of all girls.

Katawa Shoujo is a visual novel about a guy who gets sent to Yamaku Academy, where he meets five disabled girls. He can pursue any of them, depending on what choices the player makes. To many people this game seems like a perverted joke because many of the writers, artists and programmers are from 4chan and the player gets to have sex with disabled girls, but it's actually somewhat better than that.

Image

Katawa Shoujo, while poorly written and badly paced on some paths is actually better than I expected. Though there are quite a few sex scenes, they all seem realistic and they don't fetishize the girls based on their disabilities. The girls are also human and interesting characters. Even Shizune, who has the worst route is a fully fleshed out character.

Image

So yeah, this game starts off somewhat boring but is actually quite good depending on which path you take. Kenji, Lilly, Rin and Hanako are the top tier routes, Emi is a near top tier route, and Shizune is the worst route (although it's not really that bad, and it's made up for by the presence and backstory of Misha). I reccomend it as a guilty pleasure.

I don't think many people here will appreciate the game, but thanks for making me want to play this again. Time to go for the best girl! (Rin)

Yeah, I think IVHorseman's ex played it and I'm certain that Keldoclock has played it. Katawa Shoujo resonates well with people who are lonely or depressed, which is probably why IVHorseman's ex found it boring and Keldoclock found Hisao hard to relate to.

The reason I really like it is because I can relate the girls to people I know in real life, plus I was Kenji in High School.

How does anyone relate to this

Are there places I can fuck disabled girls this easily?

I don't hate Shizune, I thought she was interesting enough and her storyline was different from the others because she clearly wore the pants in the relationship. I also thought her sex scenes were the most well written, and her Dad is pretty quotable. I just found her route to be the slowest, and I thought it lacked real direction. Misha was the most interesting thing about Shizune's route in my opinion.

Also Rin is my waifu.

Honestly I've only completed her route. I'm working through Lily now who I also quite like. I'm also playing Dangan Ronpa and Ace Attorney in terms of VNs so I only spend a few minutes before bed playing usually. I'm pretty excited to see how other girls play out if Shizune is the worst route.

I should replay Rin's route

As a disabled person who spent a year in a wheelchair and understands how challenging even a fraction of life in such a condition, this game still sounds dumb as fuck.

You're just not moe enough.

Yeah, I understand why you would have a problem with it. Part of the game is the main character realizing his limits, and learning that students at Yamaku aren't freaks, as much as their lives are hampered by their disabilities they're just people. It sexualizes the characters, but in a tasteful way. You don't see Rin giving footjobs for instance.

Then again, since I don't really have any disabilities besides Ass Burgers or social anxiety, I should probably check my privilege.

Yeah I can see people being really offended by this game. But look at who made it. They probably don't care.

Why does everyone always say /b/ made this game

They didn't, most of the devs rarely browse 4chan
It really turns off a lot of potential players
