    Although everyone working on the project has posted on 4chan before, some of them don't participate in the 4chan thing any more. That's how 4chan made it: it didn't.

    You know, this game seems a LOT better then most of the shit eroge on the market.

    This is breaking new grounds, and with this kind of scenario, I can really see it tugging on some heart strings.

    I have great faith in 4chan's writers, and I hope that this game turns out well!

    we are both alone together as the translator girl left to the toilet, ~I begin having thoughts about her not being able to scream for help... though, that isn't the case, she can scream I'm sure... well I'll never actually do such a thing to a cutey though...

    "hey, if you want, I can leave..."

    she shook her head, it was I who was here first anyway... this infirmary is the only place I can go to rest my heart, the only place with a decent bed, close to the school.

    I begin to think about her large breasts... dear god, when will her friend return, this silence is too awkward...

    her eyes are looking over the farthest wall, such cute eyes... her face is rather redder then usual though... maybe its because she feels awkward being alone with me...

    "hey erm... if you don't mind I'll just be going go now."

    I get up from the bed and start to walk passed her, I noticed that since recent scratch on her leg, had been bandaged it stopped bleeding... I look into her eyes as I pass them over her chest and face, she's looking directly at me, her stare seems somewhat apologetic as if trying to say sorry...

    seeing such a cute face gets my heart racing...

    "damn it..." I clutched my chest as I fell to the ground...

    I woke up on the bed, the deaf girl with the large breasts must have brought me here...

    "how long was I out?"
    she was closer now, closer to the bed, and to me... she looked a little sad.

    she tried speaking to me, since she knew I didn't know any of that sign language... it sounded pretty awful... but it was really helpful that she learned how to lip read for people like me...

    "how pretty, you have a beautiful voice..."

    she blushed...

    "ten minutes huh... where is your friend?"

    she told me that her friend got back and then left almost immediately after seeing me in this girls arms being propped up, she left before this girl could make any sense out of the situation, and decided it best to attend to the unconscious me...

    time passed slowly... but I just noticed, I forgot to thank her...

    "erm, thanks by the way..."

    she nodded... for some reason, she isn't leaving... I thought I should be going soon now anyway... I turn around and try to stand up...

    but she pulled me back down, insisting that I don't move until I'm checked out by the nurse...

    "don't worry it happens a lot when I'm around cute girls." I froze...

    did I just say that out loud?

    my relationships with the other girls have all been strenuous, to say the least, but to actually make a Fruedian slip like that, I'm probably going to be killed!...

    she doesn't say anything but her face seems redder than before... this girl doesn't like me right? that can't be the case right... no one can be happy like this, just from being called cute right?

    can it be? can I really try it on with her?

    "erm... do you want to do something to pass the time?"
    ...

    Oh, wow! lol, I remember seeing this on 4chan at the time. People went so crazy for it, but I never seriously thought it would one day be real! I think the girl with the prosthetic legs is cutest!

    Hahaha oh wow, I was expecting something like this to come out one day. The disabled girl moe isn't anything new (Rei in bandages anyone?). I'm surprised by the fact that something like 4chan spouted this out.

    The concept is bizarre, worrying, and downright disturbing to me... yet I am for some odd reason, compelled to play this. Dear god, what is wrong with me?

    certainly seems more interesting than the usual Key

    "that one girl you were friends with then forgot about when you turned teen" and
    "girl dying of some mysterious illness" and
    "magic girlfriend comes out of where because you have an uninteresting life"

    since i am not into being a hardcore fan of anime, keygames nor harbor a fetish for everything Japanese.

    i wish this game luck.

    wow, I saw this page in the raita doujinshi and thought this would be a cool as hell game to play. I never thought it would be made though, let alone by 4chan. and apparantly this has been going on for a while too, wow.

    The blind blonde (Lilly) - she looks, uh, interesting. As in, her route. Yeah.

    I have the actual artwork form the doujin, and im quite delighted that they actually developed this.

    I wonder what Raita would say though.

    Just played the Act I demo and I really enjoyed it. I thought the subject matter was tastefully done and heartwarming.

    PS. Yeah, Rin seems to be my favorite. Maybe because she's an artist like me.

    Looks kinda cute, and I don't mind the scars.

    I'd have to say Ikezawa-chan(Disfigured by Burns) or Tezuka-chan (Arm Amputee). Tezuka-chan is attractive based on the deep-seated conversations, but overall, Ikezawa-chan seems most attractive. I've generally found that the more scarred a person is on the outside, the greater the capacity for Inner Beauty.

    On a side note...I think the "Cripple Fetish", as I think I saw it termed earlier, is somewhat based on the whole Nurturing Reflex...but I also think it appeals to Man's higher Nature of looking past Flesh and Bone when choosing a Mate. Keep in mind that the way this is setup is that no matter who you end up with, you have a physical problem you have to look past to get closer to said interest...it's Perfect!

    It should be noted that the game wasn't actually produced by 4chan. The idea simply had its roots in a discussion that took place in the 4chan forums. To say that 4chan was responible for the creation of the game would be the same as saying, if the idea had been born in a dinner conversation at a restaurant, that said restaurant was the creator of the game.

    Four Leaf Studios developed the game. 4chan is a imageboard, not a game production company.

    As for the demo itself, contrary to what one might expect, it's tastefully done and very professional. The art and writing are top notch, and the characters themselves are given an unexpected level of depth. Overall a very pleasant surprise.

    Download the preview. It is amazing. Lot's of character development and a fairly decent story. Emi (No legs) is the super cute loli style; Shizune (deaf/mute) is the tsundere; Hanako (Burn scars) is the shy, deep character; Lilly (Blind) is the dainty, high society girl; Rin (Stunted arms) is the straight forward one; and Misha (No defined disability) is te really oboxious bubbly one.

    I remember him having some kind of heart disease that could bring a soon and sudden end to his life. But don't ask me why he gets transfered to a school for disabled people.

    might have been a better idea to have him disabled in another way to that, like in a wheel chair, or something else... but I suppose they won't put out ne.

    Pretty interesting. Inner parts of myself are in a little conflict. A part seems to thinks that this is simply too weird, and the other seems to like it.

    We are moved to tears by the sheer fact that 4channers managed to do something cooperative and productive...

    Still, good job... I guess... Definitely going to try it out.

    This should be interesting,
    though I've always viewed the "disabled" fetish was something that fed of our desire to nurture and protect something that is weak and helpless.

    You should go play ONE, it's quite enlightening (has a blind girl and a mute girl). Old-school goodness, and it's even translated for your enjoyment. :)

    Just because a person is blind doesn't mean they can't talk. And a thing called braille is helpful too. Mute people are usually taught sign language.

    But when they're blind AND mute? That's a double whammy right there. I guess it severity of the case depends on whether they were born like that or became like that.

    The mute girl signs to the pink haired one (Misha or something) who then speaks to the blind one. The blind on speaks and the pink haired on translates it to sign for the mute one.

    She's a deaf-mute, not blind and mute. The blind girl can hear and speak fine.

    That's simple to get around, I read something similar in a fictional novel before. A deaf-mute girl communicated with a blind girl by holding hands and arranging each other's hands into sign language positions.

    just wanted to say that in game it seems the deaf/mute girl(Shizune)doesn't get along with the blind girl(lily)because of the fact that she never knows shi is there due to her lack of speech ability and lily is unable to notice that shi is using Misha as a translator due to the fact that she can't see the signing.
