Today when I was browsing Sankaku Complex I was shocked to see 4Chan developed an english bishoujo eroge game ,Katawa Shoujo/かたわ少女.It seems the project started quite sometime and it was actually started by anonymous.The game revolve around a boy and 5 disabled girl(Why must it be disabled girl?) and the official date has yet to be announced.Cant wait to try out this game:neko:.

Katawa Shoujo Official Site (http://www.katawa-shoujo.com/staff.php)

Here is the preview:
Katawa Shoujo Perview (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cktRM8-nYck)
Katawa Shoujo - Emi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuKfPNM8LVk)
Katawa Shoujo OP (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HvGrce-E-8)(Pls dont expect too much)


This is taken from the official site
The New Year of 2007 was bound to be business as usual for the /a/ board of 4chan until on 4th of January, Anonymous posted an omake page from a doujin by Raita of doujin circle Zettai Shoujo, detailing character art for a dating sim he dubbed “Katawa Shoujo”.

For reasons we will never know, someone’s genius idea of actually realizing Raita’s idea of the game caught on like wildfire and soon suggestions ranging from tender love stories to depraved sex fantasies were running amok in the thread.

The insane idea of creating an actual original game, based on nothing but a single picture and the sparse ideas Raita had written in the margins titillated the imaginations of Anonymous so much that people became truly serious about the fledgling project.

Soon, there were development forums and for the next months, ideas and suggestions were flying around, with people trying to flesh out their ideas, drawing sample art, writing sample text, trying to control the chaos of dozens of people arguing and bickering about the direction of the game.

From there, the most active people began the actual game developement as a working group named Four Leaf Studios and the project truly took off in the summer ‘07.

The game revolve around a boy and 5 disabled girl(Why must it be disabled girl?

I see nothing wrong with dating disabled girls, after all they are human beings with feelings and can enjoy romance like normal people.

Indeed the story could have a similar emotional impact as Kana Little Sister. It is quite interesting to see somthing developed from a few obscure ideas on a forum. It will be interesting to see how this game turns out.

Agreed :D And it's not like you're being wrong here, ahinigami. Curiousity doesnt always kill the cat. Me too, am curious, about the the decision making though. Like, if there was any significant meaning to these disabled girls, more than just showing that they are the same as us, mind wise.

Thx for the update :D and waiting for the release.

Hi, I'm one of the developers of KS. Glad to see the Good Word getting around.

I just want to note that the preview clip in the first post isn't in any way indicative of the game any more. It's from nigh on two years ago, with the art, writing, music and interface all having changed a lot since then. The Emi video is current, though.

Also, the OP is not in fact the Katawa Shoujo OP, but a spoof of the Melty Blood Act Cadenza one with Katawa Shoujo characters.

If there's any questions, feel free to ask.

(Why must it be disabled girl?)


cuz 4chan believed that "whatever it is, it's someone else's fetish"
so there goes :)

I find your sarcasm amusing.

Stormwing

Nnnn~ No, that's not a sarcasm. I know one man, he has a wife that using wheelchair, and her wife is beautiful.

If you put it as sarcasm, i think YOU're the one who has no humanity & caring to our difabled fellows, comrade =_=;

I'll crawl out of my lurker hole long enough to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the demo.

Not only is it rare to have disabled characters in any form of entertainment, but having them treated so humanely (in the literal sense) is wonderful. Far too often such characters are either made of glass or are treated as unspeakably heroic just for living. My fiancee is in a wheelchair, and the main character's adjustment to the people in the school was dead-on what I experienced when I first entered the disabled community. The reactions of the characters themselves were very familiar, too, especially the armless girl's dark humor.

Beside all that, it was just a good game overall. I can't wait to see more of it :kakashi:

Agreed, I'm more interested in seeing how the storyline turns out then the actual ero scenes.

Hell, if you guys don't finish the game, I'd settle on just reading the script of the game >_>

Dang! Disabled girls? Why not? It's unique for casting 5 disabled girls and 1 guy with disability on his insides.

It shows how disabled people still goes on life even that they can't have normal lives anymore. Katawa Shoujo is really an interesting game. I've played ero sims many times but when I saw this on sankakucomplex I've become really curious.

It's a nice game. I finish the Demo left me wanting for more.

This game has actually made it to my favorites list for the time being. If the endings aren't as 'predictable' as I see it, it will stay there;D

I hope not too sad ...

If you check their website, it appears that most of them read 4chan from time to time but are not that big a user.

Anyway, kudos to the authors, this is one of the best eroge game i've seen in a long time, well-written english, with a promising story and nice graphics.
I'm looking forward to play the whole game.

True. I as well cannot wait for this game to be finished.

I wouldn't even care if there if there were no H-scenes whatsoever in the full version (although I certainly won't mind either); mainly I wanna know how things are going to progress with Hanako. I think I'm in love! :neko:

Is it possible to complete the library from the Demo? I only got Emi and Rin's endings. I'm having problems getting the other 3.

Suriko
06-07-2009, 07:31 AM
Yes. The demo is only complete once the percentage at the bottom of the library reads 100% and all CGs are unlocked.
