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

This game was utterly beautiful. This should be shown to every unsupportive person, because it's really touching. I hope that you have finally achieved the body that shows how you feel on the inside. It's hard, but I give you my best wishes!
If labels are important, I'm a cis bi girl who almost cried while "playing" this interactive story.

Great way of telling a story that needs to be told.

I don't really want to write much about myself, seeing as how the focus is on your game and, in particular, your experience. But just know that this has been a motivation for me, and I am so proud of you. I've been on this site for a good chunk of my browsing life, and I have never come across another game that has touched me personally on such a deep level. I feel like all of my emotions were amplified during the playthrough. I nearly cried when I was touched, I nearly threw my computer when I was angry, I nearly woke up the entire house when I laughed. Knowing your journey, and what you went through, has given me motivation for the future, as I plan on hormone therapy as well. I hope to be as visible and brave as you one day, Anna.
Sorry for all that.
As for the game, the visuals were fantastic and accurate in how they portrayed the emotions and frustrations felt in those situations. The variety of activities kept the game interesting and complex, and the presentation was astounding. One would not expect a narrative journey such as this to progress in the traditional leveling system. It was a bit unresponsive at times, but at this point, it could be more broken than The War Z and I would still love it.
Overall, amazing. From the bottom of my heart, as a gamer, musician, and a mtf, I thank you for letting me experience this.

Very emotional. There was a short while I considered hormones but now I'm thinking more along the lines of top surgery. I know it's gonna be hard and I particularly related to you when you said everything your girlfriend said made you cry. I kind of went through something like that but with my mum. sorry if that sounds whiny haha
