I actually agree with SeelkadoomPL to an extent. This felt more like interactive modern "art" than a game. I'm not putting down your experiences, or the way you convey them (I actually liked the pixely art style in some areas, I also found lots of the ways you conveyed certain scenes as creative), but as a game, this just doesn't really cut it. Aside from the tiny little interactive parts, I felt like this would've fared much better as a movie than a game. I feel like McMillen has the perfect blend: interesting art/story along with strong gameplay. Again, I'm not against your story, or the way the art was portrayed, but how it fared as a "game", since you did label it so.

It was a pretty good game, I also think it will be very controversial though, but I have no problem with it. The art really contributed to how deep the game's message was as I saw it, and at first I thought this would be a fun, humorous game, but now, I think the message about accepting things like sex-change is more important than just having a game for fun. It did feel more like a movie than anything though, but I really appreciate what I think you were trying to convey with this game.

Minimalist, simple, but conveys a really strong and potent message. I really felt like I was taken through the struggles faced by something that I often only saw as a joke. Really an eye-opener.
