How the 4Chan Visual Novel beat Japan at its own game.

Disabled school children, romance and exceptional writing make Katawa Shoujo one of the finest visual novels ever made. (Culture, Katawa Shoujo, PC)

Great overview of this game. Katawa Shouo is amazing - probably one of the best Visual Novels I've ever read - and it's free!

Not playing the game.. too much of a wuss.. I have been following someone on YT playing it tho.. it dampens any emotional impact that would be too much for me :P

JRPGs, not just digital novels, need writing like this. At least once in a while versus the usual vapid and rehashed storyline.

"JRPGs, not just digital novels, need writing like this."
There is some, you just have to look for them.

But none of them are "mainstream". Have the initials "FF".

I hate the name of this article. I should download the game and give it a try.

You should. It's a superb game. Some of the best characters I've seen in a while.

I wouldn't say it necessarily beats Japan, though. I WOULD put it on the level of a Type-Moon game in terms of quality and character.

I loved this game.

It was such a surprise as the concept of the game would make you think that all the people praising the game are creepy neckbeards who enjoy watching disabled hentai. I mean there will be a few of those but this is a genuinely good game.
