Katawa Shoujo Review (Crush Frag Destroy)

CFD!'s Rob Rich takes a look at this odd indie PC title:

"It all started with a sketch on 4chan.

"On January 4, 2007, an anonymous poster uploaded an image by doujin artist RAITA. The illustrator credited it to a non-existent dating sim (a popular genre in Japan) called “Katawa Shoujo” or “Disability Girls.” 4chan being 4chan, people began talking. What if this were a real game? What would it be like? Serious? Light-hearted? Some sort of perverse sexual simulation? It wasn’t long before a number of posters took to the idea and got to work. Now, just about 5 years later, the game has been released and completed.

"The most shocking thing about it? Its actually really, really good."

Yes it is really really good. I was shocked as well when I downloaded it on a whim lol.

Been hearing so much about this lately. Guess I'll have to check it out so I'm not out of the loop when it's a cult classic or something.

After completing all the routes and got all the good endings, I must say I was very impressed. The script is very detailed and well written, yet it never tries to drag any scene out for the sake of increasing its word count, so the game comes out at just the perfect length. On top of that, each characters' personality differs greatly from one another, so no two routes feel even remotely the same. Overall, the game is definitely a must-play if you can enjoy a good piece of literature.

The game's good when you take into consideration the way it was conceived but compared to other "real" visual novels Katawa Shoujo is nothing more than a joke. If you really have that much time to waste then play Clannad, now that's a visual novel worth your time.

I watched ALL of Clanned, I don't have enough tears left to play the Visual Novel.
