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.


Desperately needs remappable keys. The controls are impossible for most of europe (Z is very far away from X and C)

This was not easy, but Castlevania uuber bosses r much harder, I died about 10 times but was a nice chalenge!

first boss was too hard.

i get this is a throwback to an older age of games where their difficulty was designed to make games not fun at all.

i could put some time into this and master it and destroy it. but i'd rather play something fun.

tip to the author: having to do the same thing over and over again is not reasonable difficulty. it's just bad game design.

her health barely moves when you hit her in the head with the whip. that means each attempt takes forever.


i know more about classic games and have beaten more of the classics than you have (with more ease i'm sure) and i can confidently say this was poorly designed with an elitist anti-player mentality that equals failure.

thanks for playing devil's advocate; it helps a lot, I'll consider this and add more variety and reduce length in the future.

this is a very good game, unfortunately, one of the most important keys is the z, which in my country is located far from x and c... Can we have an option to choose our keys pls?

Why is this rated Mature?

because this game is a parody of a dating sim where your goal is to make sweet tender love with crippled girls.
