I don't really remember, it was most certainly through a videogame site when the demo was out: I remember being intrigued by the concept of "romancing disabled people" and the picture of Rin that says "I don't have arms to hug you with", but then I mostly forgot about the whole thing, since I wasn't interested in VN... until about a month ago, when I found news again and started browsing the dev blog, the Mishimmie and the official site.
Katawa Shoujo is a game that, by all accounts, shouldn't exist, but it does and we're happier because of it!

I found it on knowyourmeme about a day or two after it was released, and basically said "That's a really interesting theme. I'll check it out." and did so. And loved it.

Where and when did you found out about Katawa Shoujo?

So, I know this is a little strange question, since probably most of you known Katawa Shoujo from the beggining, but I found out about it around three weeks ago and from this dude http://josefvstalin.com/.

So when and where did you hear about Katawa Shoujo?

A few weeks ago an old pal has sent me the link because he knows I like visual novels with a good story. That was the nicest thing he has ever done to me :D

BTW nice country, I really enjoyed my stay in Ljubljana a few years ago.

I never even heard about KS until about the 10th. I was reading the "Demotivational Posters!" thread on amvhell.com when some guy posted a reference to the game. That sparked my curiosity in what he was referring to so I downloaded the act 1 demo. I finished the demo and immediately went searching for the full game and found it rather quick. Replayed all my choices from the demo in the full game and never looked back. I now have 100% completion except for that last bonus pic in the gallery and am now in the process of replaying everything to get it. It just gives me another reason to enjoy KS all over again.

A few months ago I found this page on TVtropes. I played the act 1 demo, felt something special from it, and eagerly waited for the full release.

I heard about it from here: http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2012/01/0 ... wa-shoujo/
I didn't think much of it, though I wondered why they named a game 'cripple girl' essentially, plus i've never played a Visual Novel before (Just heard of them).
Then a couple of days after it was released I saw these guys post about it: http://kira-h.com/?p=4528 then decided that I should download it, and I don't regret it at all :D

Had only started browsing /a/ in November or so. Shortly after Christmas, I kept seeing people saying this game was coming out soon. So I ended up jumping on the bandwagon and getting it too.

I found out about a few days after the full release, the 8th or 9th from a random topic made in the General PC boards on Gamefaqs. Being bored and on break from classes I let the curiosity get the better of me and looked up the game and tried it. (Also remembered an article from Kotaku 2010 that I had tabbed to read later a month ago but forgot about it. :lol: )
94% Collected (Only have done Good endings.)

Kotaku, and an increasing media coverage in the usual circles of the internet I tend to lurk around, following the release. After waiting a few days for the DDL links to come up and passing the time with the act 1 demo I caved and fired up bittorrent.

Saw it around the release of the Act 1 demo, through a thread on /v/. Kept my beady little eyes on the project since. Shocked that was only 2 and a half years ago, feels longer.
