    Katawa Shoujo, a VN that sprang to life from just one brainstorm page in the back of a doujin artist's book, releases in 3 days on January 4th, 2012! Despite numerous setbacks and delays, my favorite would-be vaporware is actually a ready-to-launch product!

    Katawa Shoujo is a bishoujo-style visual novel set in the fictional Yamaku High School for disabled children, located somewhere in modern Japan. Hisao Nakai, a normal boy living a normal life, has his life turned upside down when a congenital heart defect forces him to move to a new school after a long hospitalization. Despite his difficulties, Hisao is able to find friends—and perhaps love, if he plays his cards right. There are five main paths corresponding to the 5 main female characters, each path following the storyline pertaining to that character.

    The story is told through the perspective of the main character, using a first person narrative. The game uses a traditional text and sprite-based visual novel model with an ADV text box.

    All of my hype, goodness!

    Oh god they finally finished it? This is surprising. I always thought it was a bit overrated but it's nice to see they actually finished their project.

    @Poverty

    After obligatory "OMG YOU'RE HERE!", I must take the opposite stance. While Shizune is quite nice, she seems quite shallow, as a character.

    That is, judging from the Act I.

    I found a bit more depth and likability in Rin, when compared to most every other character save for Lily.

    So do i have to buy it in a store or download?

    Is it in english? If not, English patch soon?

    Never played a VN before and this seems like a good place to start.

    @break only the trials were all ages. The final release apparently will have ero. Only a day or two to find out though XD

    @Flywalker37 it's free AND will be in English as well as French, Chinese, Italian, German, Hungarian, Russian, Czech and of course Japanese.

    Seems like a good start yeah, the length will be long so don't be expecting a short read though.
