Turnabout is fairplay.

Seriously, huge coincidence with the resurgence of KS posts.
I just found out there was an Android version last week, and have been reading it again on the train to/from work.

I owe a great deal to playing KS the first time... Made me realise I don't want to be lonely... Made me go out and ******* act on that and I couldn't be happier about how that turned out.
I'm not gonna go into the whole 'cool story', It's not particularly interesting. I just wanted to mention it in case it helps spur someone else into reading Katawa Shoujo, maybe it'll have an effect on them too.

whered ya download it from and is it made well?

I take it you've looked around and noticed how completely anal 4LS is about ports?
"We aren't making a KS port for android because it's too much effort"
"Well, ok, I'll make one for yo-"

*ahem* slight tangent, anyway:
It runs pretty well, played through Emi and Lillies stories with it and there's only reasonably minor problems
It's a bit system intensive for what it is, it takes up to a minute to start and my Xperia TX runs uncomfortably warm after an hour or so.
Some particles/flashes/animations can make the text lag a bit (nothing major).
There aren't any videos.
And the music often doesn't start/stop until one click after it was supposed to.

Here's the link to the main thing:
And here's the link to the pre-compiled latest version:

Hopefully that works for you, enjoy ^^

I wanna hear it, if you'd tell it? PM maybe

I wasn't kidding when I said it wasn't interesting, but ok, I'll try to put in a lot of detail or something.

At the time I played KS I was pretty bummed out with my life.
It was late in the year, I'd finished college (Tafe, but for non-aussies it's kinda like college) the year before, I had three decent friends, I was gaining weight, I was unemployed, and there was something else bugging me but I wasn't sure what.
After finishing KS I felt motivated, most people do I guess, and I tried doing something with my life.
I found work surprisingly quickly once I tried but whatever as bugging me was sapping my newfound motivation really quickly.

I found this song:
I realised what was wrong, I was lonely.
The lack of school brought with it a lack of socialising, I didn't go out, I didn't have many friends, the ones I did have were moving overseas.

One friend had moved to the US, I've known her about 6 years, we'd been chatting online a lot since she'd just ended an abusive relationship and was living on her own with little to do.
I trudged through work, was contemplating quitting, it's boring stuff for long hours and I was only getting through a day because I could talk with her using MSN on my phone.

After, maybe a month, it dawned on me who I'd found, someone who cared about me, someone I was happy just to see. Normally I wouldn't have said anything, but I thought back to KS... I only get one life, the lessons from that VN had sunk in, I went for it.
Turned out I didn't have much to worry about since she'd had a crush on me for a year!

So yeah, that's the tale.
I haven't really stated how important KS was to all of this, I'm not much of a writer and I'm kinda just spewing this onto the keyboard as I think of words.
But I wouldn't have gone for it if it weren't for KS, if I didn't tell her how I felt I wouldn't have the motivation to continue working (I need the money to help bring her back to Australia from the US), if I didn't continue working I wouldn't have made friends at work... If I was still alone with no friends no money and no job? well... That'd suck to say the least. I could never commit suicide but I'd be dead as far as anyone cared.

So that's it, not particularly interesting, not well written, but the whole thing is true, and I'm fairly certain it all hinges on realisations and motivation that I took from this game. It's something that changed my life, and hers, for the better.
And I could never give that up, and I hope others can get a similar experience from it

Posted a follow-up, just notifying you if you're interested.
User avatar #70 to #65 - suckittrebek (07/26/2013) [-]
Interesting? That is in the eye of the beholder..
Well-written? as long as it's honest and sincere, then the meaning will shine out brightly..
And without being sarcastic, I'd say: Cool story bro

Well Emi...

Let's play the alphabet game.

We'll go through the alphabet, and you think of the first word that comes to your head.

We'll start with A.

Can you think of a word that starts with A?


Can you?

I wonder what re sparked the interest anyways.
User avatar #77 to #22 - sketchE (07/26/2013) [-]
i heard an android version came out
#24 to #22 - anonymous (07/26/2013) [-]
Good point, maybe one person decided to post a KS post and well, it's not hard to get KS fans talking

I feel like a ******* hipster for liking it before it got popular the first time, but I'm glad a lot of other people are interested in it too....

In fact, I'm going to start playing it again.... wipe away my 100% and start all over again... oh man..

What is this anime called?
User avatar #28 to #18 - trailoftears (07/26/2013) [-]

Here's a brief and accurate description of what it's like.
#19 to #18 - harrywarden ONLINE (07/26/2013) [-]
It's a visual novel called Katawa Shoujo.

Is this really making a comeback? . . . . . I'm really okay with that.
#26 to #16 - anonymous (07/26/2013) [-]
I would be too.... but when it becomes popular, it kinda breaks the immersion you felt from going through it by yourself. I felt like I was the only one who was put into that world...

But, having other people to talk to about it is also nice...
