After five years in the making, much-discussed indie release Katawa Shoujo is finally available for download. The English-language visual novel was developed by an international team apparently composed of 4-chan members, and has been praised for its sensitive treatment of issues pertaining to disabilities. There are five ladies to romance, and you can grab it for free on PC, Mac and Linux via a torrent; the game’s main website appears to have buckled under demand.
