Diss Ability

Apparently there is a visual novel-style game called Katawa Shoujo that is totally a real thing and not just some weird shit from 4chan. The plot of this girlfriend sim is centered on a player-controlled character searching for love in a specialty high school for disabled children.

And again I must point out that this is an actual product.

Stranger still – or perhaps not strange at all considering the source – our own Karl "Ultraklystron" Olson has penned a musical homage to the property for his forthcoming release Animatic. The more impatient among you will be pleased to know that you can download "Katawa Tribute" right now from Soundcloud, and the requisite fan-made video, which has already received an impressive 1300+ views, is available below.

I'm presenting it without comment – aside from this brief note that Karl sounds pretty great on it – mostly because there's little I can say that could possibly be as weird as the actual game concept itself.

You win this round, internet!
