dys4ia is an autobiographical game about the period in my life when i started hormone replacement therapy.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

I really appreciated this, because one of my best friends is still in 'stage 1' of this game in his day-to-day. You communicated feelings and experience well.

However, ordering pills online? Ick. Literally made me cringe. I pray to god nobody in this situation who plays this takes that as an endorsement of that route.

When i started the game i got ear rape from the intro as i had my headphones On 100%, Then i played the game and I loved it,

I think it's a great way to make people understand more about this. I personally worked with 2 transgender, but I didnt quite get them. I think it is as hard to be a woman trapped in a man body as to be someone outside this trying to understand how can someone be so uncomfortable with their gender that they they mentally are something else.
this game is great, thank you. and might I say you are lucky to have found a girl like your girlfriend, she truly loves you for what you truly are ^^!

The world needs something like this!!! Gender dysphoria is still way, way, way, way, WAY too little-known and misunderstood in this world. I also love the idea of it being put together as a game, as this is probably the best way of reaching a demographic of increasing size. The levels themselves are easy, but I think it's actually better that way so more people can play through and get the whole story in the process.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Good overall but I'd say that in the spirit of mantaining the narrative flowing you missed some opportunities to insert some more interesting gameplay elements.

There's one example in the screen about going though loops. The text tells me I have to go through "too many loops", but the game just makes me go through 3. What I'm trying to explain is that you could have included more gameplay challenges as metaphors of the real-life challenges you are illustrating.

In short, the game as such didn't compel me very much to keep playing it. All that kept me going was wanting to learn more about your experience.

The graphics and sound have a nice touch to them, and the controls are just right.
