1. You can modify controls after dying to Lilly once.
2. You can press down+jump to slide
3. You can replay the game to find something more challenging

Katawa Shoujo is a bittersweet romance visual novel where the reader roleplays as Hisao Necktie: a highschooler who has become afflicted with a heart condition that forces him to enroll at Yamaku, a school designed for physically disabled students. Hisao eventually copes with his new condition and regains a new outlook in life with the help of one of the five possible romantic interest; all crippled in some way or form.

Katawa Shoujo: Symphony of the Feminists is something completely different.

Did I mention you guys gave awesome reviews? The praises were great but the criticisms were even better, it lets me know exactly what players liked and hated. All other reviews I've read elsewhere are one line spams that are shit, but this? this is pure gold. Thanks for putting time into this.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

well, i can't beat the first i quit :/


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Great music, my only problem is the spontaneous difficulty.Also, nice voice acting. Kenji is a douche. (BTW, I noticed that Akira has Craft (from Mega Man Zero 4)'s moveset, is this intended?)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I absolutely hated Kenji, he was such a crazy son of a gun.

I could hardly keep up with him and I actually started to develop some serious anxiety issues when he'd pop up in the corridor.

Great game, nice sprites and funny dialogue.

Katawa Shoujo is a great game too, so nice to see that getting a shout out.

Well, having just beaten the second boss, I gotta say I'm a little disappointed.
You had the prime chance to introduce Kenji Satou to his most dangerous foe, or rather foes. A pair of blue and pinked haired succubi, one of whom who may or may not be a female duplicate of such a manly hero, meant to replace him in a feminist-regime ruled world.

Honest thoughts though, I didn't have any real issues with controls. It felt good enough to control and attack, though I never did figure out what pushing the up arrow did (must not of been anything too amazing, at least I'm hoping so). That second boss can be a real bugger, but once you get the timing down on how long a certain attack takes to go off, its not all that hard, specially since there is no blindness trick tossed in near the last part of the fight, just dodging said attack and hoping a certain other attack isn't flying about at the same time.

A shame you haven't played much of the series though. You could of put in some neat little easter eggs into the game, specially since the area this is based off of in Symphony had a few nice things. Heck, first time I played it, I was expecting Hisao to come running in for a revive when I first died. Heck, if you beat Lily without using any items or dying, you should of got Kenji's epic optical blast.

if I ever gain the artistic ability to draw Misha and Shizune in Panty and Stocking transformation sequence, and have them fire drills and eyeglass beams at Kenji, I would burn away my life force to see it completed, alas, I'm still learning. Food for thought.

Will throw less parody and more content at people next time I try something like this, thanks.
