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.
The sound direction in the game is really what makes this game really special. The music is wonderful, the sound effects are wonderful, they synergize with the game in a visceral way that a lot of games lack.
As a (white, male) guy who has had literally no experience with people who struggle with gender identity issues it's... difficult for me to understand what it's like. On a basic level, sure, I understand that it's hard being seen as something you don't feel you are, or to experience derision or prejudice from people who refuse to show any empathy or understanding to people different from them. But it's only a passing understanding. I try to imagine what it might be like and often it's a struggle to appreciate that not every person in the world comes from my same background and thinks the way I do about the things I think about
And I know how hard it is to properly express even simple ideas, let alone complex ones like these. So I really appreciate when a game, or a book, or a TV show or whatever deeply personal work like this comes out and is accessible enough that a naive dope like me can appreciate it and internalize a little bit of understanding that I didn't have before.
can I help you sir?
Brilliant... I almost never share stuff from here but this I will.
Well done, inspiring and unusually personal - I will recommend this
Insightful and honest. The gameplay is clever, and blends in will with the experience of a transperson. I am inspired, thankyou.
