dys4ia is no longer available on newgrounds. it can be downloaded at:
dys4ia is an autobiographical game about the period in my life when i started hormone replacement therapy.
Nice game, it gets a person thinking.
I should probably stop reading reviews, since I'm slowly remembering the amount of twats there are on the interwebs. But I should just come out and say that this was obviously meant to be choice-less and designed to be a story in game format, which is fine, but the only thing that I can review is the story. Also people who are posting why she said she was a woman despite having a penis is that the body can be much more different mentally then physically. Gender or sexuality is not binary since it will not always apply the same way to everyone, simply put, your mind might think that your a dude instead of being a female, or vice versa, but this doesn't always apply with things like Gender-queer and other things of that nature.
Thankfully the story is interesting and well told. Only issue is that there was no end for the actual story, but I'm pretty sure that it did get better. I think you could have named the chapters a bit more fittingly instead of 'Gender Bullshit' or 'Hormonal Bullshit'. I understand thats how you felt but it just comes off as a bit class-less. I think that this would have flowed better with people if it was a movie, rather then a game. While I do think that anything can be a game, when there is no interactivity with the player, then it stops being a game.
Overall, it was a good story, but not much else.
I'm not being mean...or rude...but why is this popular? It confused and to be honest disturbed me. Possibly keep these things private and not make them in to games and you won't get bad reviews that hurt your hormonal feelings. :c good luck though
It's not bad.
My only concern was that you put the 'medical' half in a negative light. I'm not trying to make excuses for the health care system, Lord knows it's has a lot of problems. It's just annoying that health care workers often get shown as the bad guy in this kind of situation, when insurance companies are usually the ones dictating what can and can't be done.
That said, if this story is true, then hopefully everything works out okay for you and you enjoy your new outlook on life.
i think you're really brave and totally awesome for making this game. Thank you for coding a way for outsiders to understand your struggle. Dispite some ass-burger down syndrome NG user comments, i think the game was good for what it was intended to do; give a look into someone's actual life. I wish you well in your lifes endevours.
