Does Looking Forward to This Make me a Bad Person?

Of course not.
Being a bad person makes me look forward to this.


Understanding cause and effect are important.

Yes, the full version of Katawa Shoujo, better known as That Atrociously Atrocious Atrocity (with the really cool characterizations) is coming out on January 4th.

Why the cringing you ask? Well, this is a dating-sim visual novel in which all of the young ladies posses various disabilities. Put together by a group of US fans, it is based on a joke sketch by a Japanese Doujinshi artist. Given such dubious subject matter and provenance, the correct response would normally be NO FREAKKING WAI GTFO!

However...

Back in '09 I sent a link to the demo release to our EBP who provided a review here. I played through the abomination myself and was impressed. The demo was quite large and the characters were superbly realized. The demo was not exploitative or insulting in the least. It was actually engaging, thoughtful and even touching.  This promises to be a quite entertaining visual novel. I find myself looking forward to it. Still, I feel funny posting this heads up on my blog since I'm pretty sure that...well...there's gonna be talk.

..you know...talk.
