I'm Amaterasu Nakazato, or Ama for short! I want to get this blog up and running again, or at least try to to. I promise! This is going to be My first post here!
So I'm going to start with a Visual Novel. This is for those who may like Visual Novels or for those just getting into them. This reminds me of how I was helping some of my RL friends get into them.
|I liked one, aimed for another and ended up into some random route!|
Katawa Shoujo [means Disabled Girls] is the visual novel I want to talk about. Its a simple premise, youre playing the game from the boys perspective and youre trying to date some nice girls. But, with these girls they all have a past and some scars. Because these girls have disabilities and fears stemming from their disabilities. Gotta put in the work to win their hearts.
|Introduce yourself or just be sorry? Kinda difficult choice for me.|
As a traditional Visual Novel, its read and choose an option. These choices are always important. If you think well, they are always related to a specific girl and its quite easy to read. You have five girls to chose from. Quite hard to not like one of them~
|No, Misha, you has no route in Katawa Shoujo...|
Some feedback that I got on Facebook was that Act 1 has a LOT of text, with almost no action. Maybe it's because of the presentation of each character, this can make things slower and stall the story for a while. But, Act 2 is pretty sweet because you are already with the girl you chose, so the story will revolve around you and her.
|Ends here/Begins here?|
It is great that this a FREE game! This way people can get familiar with Visual Novels by playing this one for free. Its a lot better than trying to find pirated versions on the net. The pirated versions usual need needs a lot of programs and steps to work. For example, a program like AppLocale, its used for applying patches and other things. It was quite confusing at first.
If you enjoy cute girls and like a bit of drama, this game may be for you.
Heres the Torrent
And heres a DDL (not a official one)
"Enjoy Katawa Shoujo!"
