That Game About Dating Disabled Girls is Excellent (And You Should Play It)

Kotaku - When I first heard that a visual novel centered around dating girls with physical disabilities was being made, my first thought was "only in Japan." Of course, I was completely wrong. While made in the style of a typical Japanese visual novel—and even based on a Japanese sketch—Katawa Shoujo was created by a group of fans from all over the world who met on the message board 4chan. In case you are unaware of who and what one might encounter on 4chan, be forewarned as you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy on the internet than in the bowels of 4chan. So heading in, I was sure this would be at best a satire of visual novels and at worst a horribly insensitive, offensive, racist, sexist pile of irreverent hate. I never expected it to be the best visual novel I have ever played. (Katawa Shoujo, PC)

Actually it was made by 4chan users. I'm not sure if the guys who made it are Japanese though.

Katawa Shoujo is an excellent visual novel. Everyone should give it a shot! It is free after all.

This is a really good game and believe it or not, it's very respectable. You almost find it hard to believe it came from 4chan users.

This game is amazing, simply put. The characters are so well-written and unique, and even though you can see the hint of various stereotypes, their individuality- and the script- makes it seem like it's not even there.

If only my computer hadn't died and destroyed my saves...

Proudly admit, I cried manly tears while playing this.
