Why is everyone being assholes about this persons struggle? You dont like the game? Fine, give it a zero and move to another game. Don't verbally abuse this person because she doesn't feel comfortable as a man. Not all games have to fit a certain style, I personally love games that a different. Don't bash this person for being different. Grow up.

Chapeau, dear friend.
Deep feelings packed into simple imagery of 8-bit poetry.
I wish all the best for your bright new future.

I can't even keep reading reviews, they'll just make me mad. I think this was a bold submission. Innovative, original, a real point to be made, and wonderful imagery. You used metaphoric images, a great tone set by the music and colors, and you learned to connect to the "character," (you) quite quickly. I loved the style, and it helped me better understand your struggle. I liked the choiceless "gameplay" because that's how you lived it. You had to follow others' rules set by your body and by doctors and by what people were telling you what you are in their opinion, something that is still being told to you in these damn reviews.

It was brave, and shows your confidence and your triumph. This isn't the only game you don't get choices. At some points it had Warioware aspects, and I'm reminded of the Scarecrow Sequence in Arkham Asylum, and when the Joker rises his gun to you and you're told to press a button to dodge yet that button doesn't exist on your controller. It gives annoys and freaks you out for a moment until you realize the point. The whole time I "played" this and followed along, I could not wait to move on to see what happened and if this would be a happy ending. /rant. Great job. I think this was a new, great step for you. Congratulations! :D I hope you're much happier now.
