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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Utterly spellbinding. Magnificent. Heartbreaking. One of the finest flash games of the year so far. Anna Anthropy has paired the conflicting emotions and nervous anxiety of a young man's decision to follow his heart and undergo hormone replacement therapy with the perfect genre to fully encapsulate the boiling pot of raw emotions and outside opinions that often accompany such a momentous life choice: the mini-game collection. Visually inventive, mechanically whimsical; dys4ia strikes a major blow for the idea that games can be a respectable medium for art and story-telling. But dys4ia is more than just respectable: it's revolutionary.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Inspiring. I wish you the best of luck.
Also, the style of this game is simple but highly engaging, do make more?

An interesting way in which to show an event that most people don't understand.

Seeing your story like this has given me hope that my own story will turn out just as good in the end. As someone going through this journey myself, I have to say that you've helped me continue to be inspired and not give up hope for my own sake. Thank you.

Art is not necessarily beautiful because it portrays life alone; rather, it is beautiful and worth experiencing because it conveys the sensations that come with the condition of life- to me, this "game" is art in the truest since of the word because you put out for all to see what you felt over the course of a process where you were realizing yourself becoming who you always truly were. This is sensation over a digital medium; this is art; this is touching because it is showcasing one person's definition of finding (if not happiness) peace with themselves and the world they live in. Please follow this up. Please.
