dys4ia is an autobiographical game about the period in my life when i started hormone replacement therapy. it's a story about me, and is certainly not meant to represent the experience of every trans person.

It was a fascinating insight into what it's like going through something so visible, yet at the same time so intensely personal. It meant a lot to play this game - a good friend of mine is going though the same procedure at the moment and it's given me a bit of an insight into her day-to-day struggles. The people calling you "sir" made me feel a bit guilty since it took a while for me to get used to calling her by her female name and use "her" when referring to her.

I loved how you made this game it was instantly charming. Congratulations on getting closer to your goal of self confidence and image. I work in the medical field and I know that the bullshit you had to go through was not hyperbole. Keep going for what makes you happy but please don't turn your quest for beauty into a never ending one. If your girlfriend says you're beautiful that should be all that matters.

This was beautiful. Everything about it was so powerful, inspiring.
Thank you for making this, and, more importantly, good luck.

This isn't bad. It's short, and involves very little gameplay, but I didn't have any problem seeing it through to the end, or wanting to get out of it. I love the 8-bit style, so that was a plus, but it's really the story, or lack thereof. It's just a step into someone's life, and on NG, that's an extremely original concept. The only thing preventing me from rating it higher is that there is very, very little gameplay, and I do think that a movie might've worked better for the concept, but it was okay, and I kind of liked it.
