Wow, this is incredibly inane.
This "game" combines the lazy pretentiousness of the worst indie games with the self-absorbed whining of a man who thinks he is a special little snowflake. If at least the gameplay was good this wouldn't be much of a problem. As it turns out, the gameplay (if it can be called that) is completely insignificant and vacuous.
I give it half a star because it could still have value as a time waster for certain types of people who do not value their time at all.

as someone who's struggled with similar (but not always identical, or even close) issues around identity, i can tell you, if we're basing this on emotional weight alone, as most artistic contributions should primarily be judged, this gets a 12/10, or, 5. that being said - skill can enchance presentation, presentation can lead to people letting go of preconceptions, but - you have found your answer, good luck to you! i wish you all the best; from the sidelines! now to end with a slightly-still-confused *confuzzledchirp!*

Dys4ria isn't so much of a game as it is an Interactive experience. It surely gives you a feeling of what it feels like to be a woman trapped in a man's body, and maybe even a man trapped in a woman's body. The gameplay is Relatively simple by just using the arrow keys to move the things in the game, such as a person or in one case, the sun. This is one of those experiences that someone should play when they have the time to. As for the Visual standpoint, it's a simple 8-bit looking game with a lot of colors. Although there was one point where the colors look almost felt eye hurting, such as the blue and Pink characters on a greenish yellow background. It's a Decent enough game to call an experience and if people get the chance to play it.

Gameplay: decent timewaster, not exactly exciting but not exactly boring either, occasionally the game broke, especially at the waiting room.

Story: Hearing someone complain about first world problems isn't very compelling, first worlders complaining about the consequences of their weight gain is pretty insulting and insensitive to the third world where hunger is an issue.

Conclusion: Mediocre gameplay, variety alone makes it decent but not deserving of the kind of "indie" praise it got, baseless pretentiousness and minority points might work on other people, but not me. 1 star is the best I can do.

Hun, I made an account JUST because this game is amazing. You'll be fine, I promise you that. Soon, you'll forget your past life! This game is amazing, this should be played in clinics like the one you went to. 5/5 for everything
