Hard4Games Writes Katawa Shoujo: A New Form Of Torture

"If I’ve learned anything from this journey, it’s that some concepts should not be translated into books, films, music, or games. Many stories work better in a book, but not so much in a film. The same applies for films failing when translated into games. Katawa Shoujo (translated directly as “Cripple Girls”) is a bold attempt to maintain the visual novel genre; bold, because the plotline digs into a subject where games haven’t gone before. You assume the role of Hisao, a high school student who suffers from cardiac dysrhythmia (meaning he has a dangerously irregular heartbeat), and he is transferred to a school for disabled youths. You, the player, are tasked with reading large bulks of text and choosing prompted options that further the story. The heart of the story is Hisao’s romance with one of five disabled young ladies, hence the title of the game. At the very least, the game is free to download, so you don't feel cheated when you die on the inside. I leave you now with a written log by Huckleberry Ric, as he and Hard4Games’ John Bennett attempt to find their lost comrade, Coyote. Enjoy." (Culture, Katawa Shoujo, PC)

This was the only game I played that made me cry. And I mean that in a good emotional way. :)
