I feel the need to publicise this, although it is already quite popular I want to share it with as many people as I can. Katawa Shoujo is a visual novel about a teenage boy who suffers a heart attack and is sent to a school for children with special needs and disabilities. It centres around his romance with some of the girls there, you make a few choices along the way that decide who he ends up with.
I was a complete newcomer to the visual novel genre when playing this, and its Japanese manga style is not my usual thing, but after playing through a couple of times I am so very glad that I picked this up. Each girls' story has it's own theme, often with heart wrenching emotions on display. I am not too concerned with masculine bravado to admit that I have shed real tears while seeing these stories unfold.
Even if it's not your usual style (it certainly isn't mine), I suggest you give it a go. I found it a very enlightening experience. It's free to download from the official website:
- I am an author, getting focused on my writing. This blog is to promote my writing and give me some feedback on my work. I'm a big fan of far-fetched fantasy including the works of Terry Pratchett and Robert Rankin, along with sci-fi, non-fiction and everything in between. I love to read.
