From what I've gathered its a dating simulator and I just can't help but feel bad about myself for playing a dating simulation. I'm sure someone will rush to the defense of this game, but that is my initial impression. If someone wants to explain the basic premise of the game, then I'm all ears.

To add to mowgaycraft's comment below and to address your specific concern: The relationship tends to focus more on the reparation of those within it, i.e. addressing their life problem, instead of focusing on the relationship between the lead male and female. It should be mentioned that each route has one or two H-scenes. However, these can be (should you wish to) switched off. Sort of standard fare for VNs.

It's a visual novel. Dating sims and visual novels usually get clumped together though Dating sims tend to focus more on the relationship of characters and have more options on how to do that, like planning dates and all that kinda stuff. While visual novels stick to a branching or linear story, not necessarily needing romance in them though Katawa Shoujo is one that does, its way of branching the story is by having multiple choice scenarios where you pick and choose what you want to do, some others do different but that's the usual go for them, KS being no different.

I'm not rushing to the defense of the game, I heard about it about...2-3 years before it was finished and by the time I'd played it I'd already gotten a good experience of the medium and KS didn't really stand out beyond the fact that it uses people with disabilities as its hook as well as the fact that it's one of the first few mainstream OELVNs (Orignal English Language Visual Novel). Hope I answered what you wanted to know and if I missed what you wanted just ask and I'll try to clarify some for you.

That explains it then. Thank you for explanation, it was actually very enlightening.
