Katawa Shoujo: Re-Engineered

(18+) A fan-made modernization of the classic visual novel

Katawa Shoujo (translated "Disability Girls") is a bishōjo-style visual novel by Four Leaf Studios that tells the story of a young man and five young women living with varying disabilities. The game uses a traditional text and sprite-based visual novel model with an ADV-style text box running on the Ren'Py visual novel engine. The game is licensed under the Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-ND.

Katawa Shoujo: Re-Engineered offers a battery of accessibility features to accommodate players with disabilities. Using the tools available in modern Ren'Py, we've added quick access to self-voicing, two dyslexic typefaces, a special high contrast text box, and various optimizations to improve functionality with common screenreaders- and that's just the beginning. We're already looking into other ways to make KS:RE even more accessible.

Open source. No archives. No obfuscation. KS:RE doesn't try to hide how it works. Anyone is welcome to peek under the hood and experiment, free of interference. The vastly simplified codebase of KS:RE allows developers of all skill levels to read, learn, and alter to their heart's content. If you have an idea- a new accessibility feature, an improvement to a menu, a further simplification of the code- you have everything you need to make it happen. KS:RE is a community project first and foremost. If you can make the game better, our door is always open.

KS:RE, under its default settings, plays exactly as you remember it. However, you have a few new options at your fingertips to tailor your experience to your liking. For a touch of visual flair, you can enable Parallax viewing, breathing a little extra life into your favorite characters. Sharing your experience has never been simpler - KS:RE seamlessly integrates with Discord's activity bar, letting your friends see your excellent taste in visual novels. All of these features are completely optional, and can be toggled with a single click.

KS:RE comes preloaded with Russian, French, Spanish translations, ready to use with no extra effort on the player's end. Every other official translation won't be far behind. The simplified codebase of KS:RE makes creating new translations easier than ever, requiring virtually zero programming knowledge. We're more than willing to port over any finished translation you create and add it to KS:RE- credited to you, of course.
