Katawa Shoujo is a visual novel set in the fictional Yamaku High School for disabled children, located 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.

Produced by 4chan...

i have watched this project being born from a single image years ago. its a shame i dont have time to actually play it nor do i care enough to.
the idea itself still makes me smile, however.

D'you know, after finishing KS I calculated I'd spent 40 hours playing it... Compare to the last game I played (Portal 2) which ate 30, cost more, and didn't stick in my thoughts nearly as much afterwards.

I think what drew me to it was that it was the idea of an amateur online production, spawned on 4chan no less, which produced something that turned out so well and succeeded so thoroughly. I think the kickstarter artbook project shows they had no idea how many people they'd touched.

I also have to wonder how many of the KS devs are now rethinking their decision to disband, or of starting another project.
