Katawa Shoujo 1.1.1 patch (Mac OS X only)

The Mac OS X version of KS 1.1 has a bug where the game crashes on reaching the Act 1 bad end in French. This is a patch to fix it:[4ls]_katawa_shoujo_1.1.1_patch_[mac][E4951D8E].zip

Again, this patch ONLY applies to the OS X version of 1.1, it is not necessary for any other version (or if you do not intend to ever read it in French).

Fifth Katawa Shoujo illustration book to be released at Comiket 84

Are you one of the thousands of people attending the 84th Comic Market, despite the sweltering late summer heat? Come chill out at the Katawa Shoujo translation project table and say hello! You'll find us on the third day of Comiket (12th August) at East Hall 5, table プ-46a.

As a new item for this event, 4LS is releasing our fifth illustration book, Imperfect Spectrum. It's a 20-page full colour book featuring Katawa Shoujo-themed artworks by 4LS staff members and our friends. As with previous illustration books, a limited physical edition will be on sale at Comiket and a free digital edition will be released later.

Katawa Shoujo 1.1 Released

After a year and a half, the first update to Katawa Shoujo is released! The occasion is brought upon by the completion of the French translation project. Give your monitor a high five to congratulate the hard-working translation team. We've also included some other, mostly minor upgrades to the game, such as typo corrections. 1.1 replaces the original release as the main distribution of KS so if you are distributing KS in any way, it'd be nice to swap to this version. Meanwhile, many other translation projects are still forging ahead and when completed, will be integrated into further updates to KS.

The main features of the 1.1 version are:
  • French localization
  • New version of the "Red Velvet" track, featuring luscious live saxophone tunes from our friend Japes
  • Engine upgrade to version 6.15 for OS X, allowing usage of Retina displays and fullscreen.
Get the new release from the Katawa Shoujo website, or directly from these links:
