It's about an anti-social kid trying not to fail college. The demo just came out (because it's literally a work in progress) but I have personally played it and I think this might be one to look forward to, however too early to compare to KS. It's actually very well done though in my opinion. The unique art style really grows on you.

i know its not supposed to be compared to KS, but if they didt want that, MAYBE, they shouldnt have chosen a visual style so close to it..

You should compare the two. They're using the same medium.

Though it kinda looks like it's trying to follow in KS's shadow due to its popularity.

Is this the game reddit decided to develop after Four Leaf Studios released Katawa Shoujo?

Heard this rumour about some redditors were trying to develop a spiritual sequel to Katawa Shoujo, with the premise that it was about mentally-disabled rather than physically-disabled people. One of the issues I didn't like was that they supposedly chose all the "cool" diagnoses or grossly miss presented them.

That premise is stupid and doomed to failure, also kinda sick come to think of it, it's like raping a potato and give a pan flowers are flossing your nostrils.

I understood every single word of that up until potato.

But I agree, the cool thing about the way Katawa Shoujo handled the disabilities were very well because they didn't turn them into something lolrandumb (I believe one of the reddit girls would have been a sociopath) or demeaning.

Take Rin for example , Rin who has no arms has to do every thing with her legs, this also gives her a very unique way of thinking, which is her charm, but also proves to be a curse as no one can understand what she is thinking any more and she is not sure who she is or who she should be .

Thing about rin is, even if she had the arms you could tell a story about a misunderstood artist and ****.

Yeah that is definitely not what this is about, they're all able-bodied. It's about a kid who is trying not to flunk out of community college by taking on a few extra classes and meeting people along the way. I think it was somewhat inspired by KS but it's probably not the one you're thinking of.

Erhm... you said "able-bodied", did you mean "able-minded"? Because the fact that they are "able-bodied" doesn't rule out that this could be the reddit game.

Also, visual novels are nothing new, why is this one special?

No I played it, and the characters are able-bodied/minded. It's not particularly special but it's similar enough to Katawa Shoujo to interest users in this channel.

I don't think they are connected but I thought that Katawa Shoujo fans would definitely enjoy this so I decided to share because this game is almost completely unknown right now. SS Studios is not connected to four leaf.

I'm listening to the soundtrack they posted a link for and it definitely sounds like KS, I kinda want to wait for the final product but I already feel like just downloading it... eh, sorry I just lost my train of thought or rather I'm literally typing what I'm thinking, seriously a can't stop! alright I'm going to bite my hand you'll know if it succeed by whether or not you're reading this.

How do you contact them about suggestions, they've got rollback text but that just seems to skip you back to the beginning of the scene, a backlog would be far more convenient.

I never did finish katawa sjoujo or however you write it. Should I download this guys? How big is the demo? Is it any good? There's a lot of stuff I consider before I get a game, and I usually don't bother unless I know I'm gonna like it. the About page isn't really helping, and I really want to know

You could just test it out for yourself to see of you life it or not, it's only like 300 megabytes. If you didn't like Katawa Shoujo then you're probably not going to like this, but then again this is not about disabled girls so it seems a little more realistic.

I think that might actually be the point, portray a stereotypical anti-social kid and the thoughts that might be going through his head. I'm not really sure where the story will go but most likely he will obviously end up passing his classes and develop into a more mature character, but that's just a guess.

I see what you're saying, but he's the main character so I guess rules don't apply to him lol. Have you actually played through the whole thing? I haven't finished yet but I'm wondering what others think of it.

oh man, it's like 1.30 in the night, I should probably go to sleep now. Guess the story was bit more exciting than I thought ... Although this happens every time I read something. Once read a horrible fanfiction until 4 in the morning just to find out there was no ending ...

You can find out here: blog.salty-salty-studios.com/

I'll probably make another post in this channel when it does come out, because this is still a relatively unknown project (as I have found from searching the web), but that won't be for a while judging by the blog.
