The Once Sentence Challenge!

Katawa Shoujo summed up in one sentence?

So, I've been thinking long and hard about how to sum up the very essence of Katawa Shoujo into a single sentence that could accurately and completely portray it to someone that has never read it before. Not going to lie, it's damn hard. Guess I failed that challenge. I then decided that I would ask the community what they thought would be the best sentence possible for this particular challenge. Please try to keep the sentences about one to two lines in length, and avoid run-on sentences, as a run-on would sort of ruin the point of the challenge.

I'll start.

"Katawa Shoujo takes every good and bad moment from your past and clusterfucks them together with even more emotions into something so disgustingly beautiful that not only will it crush your soul, make you cry, raise your spirits, make you laugh, enlighten you, destroy you, surprise you, and change your life, but it's a damn good read, too."

Katawa Shoujo will turn the mirror on your very soul, revealing to you things about yourself you never knew.

Katawa Shoujo rips out your terrible, deformed soul, then as you are crying over your loss, hands it back to you, purified by the ever-shining grace of the girl's hearts, and as you take it, crying tears of joy, you realize that you've given nothing in return, but nothing seems worthy, and you are left with a sadness in your heart, as it is now impossible to return the favor that has been done to you.

Wow. Just completely made that up as I went along... hopefully it sounds ok :P

So I have created a thread inadvertedly XD

I meant a short sentence, not that honker of a paragraph XD
...What? Not a real quote? Oh well, it's Yipyapper's quote now.

Katawa Shoujo : The best visual novel I ever played.

'Nuff said.
"If there can be no victory, then I will fight forever."
-Koth of the Hammer

"If you're not having fun, what's the point of living forever?"
-An unknown vampire

You can spot a werewolf-infested town by its lack of butcher shops.

Don't underestimate the aerodynamic qualities of the common goblin.

So I'm trying to convince someone who's never heard of it to play it?

"It's a creepy porn game about crippled girls."

We both laugh and wonder how anyone could play it. I also laugh on the inside, knowing the other person will now be curious and will search it up on their own time and end up playing it. Several days later I'll pass off some reference to the game, at which point they will wonder if I actually played the game, or if they just misinterpreted what I said. They go insane and explode.
My shoes aren't actually brown. Well, one pair is, but I mostly wear grey ones.
