Rated 5 / 5 stars

I really enjoyed the story. I am about to start HRT myself and found it interesting and educational (thanks for the tip about letting the estrodiol dissolve under your tongue, but why?). I hope the inspirational message of this game is true. Thank you for your work and putting yourself out there.

For those who didn't bother to read the author comments, this is an interactive autobiographical game about hormone replacement therapy. It's clearly labeled for what it is, so I'm not sure exactly why at least one comment blasts it for it being "not something you should shove off on strangers." If you're uncomfortable with the concept, don't play it, and don't bother commenting, especially if you"could not give any shits."
With that out of the way, the "Wario Ware" comment is actually very accurate as you complete these simple, silly tasks to continue the story. The details of the author's struggles are what pull me into this game, and the way the author uses these images to present these struggles (the awkward tetris fit to describe feeling awkward about one's own body was my personal favorite) I thought was well done.
The game can be a bit slow-paced, and at times I had to press the arrow keys just to figure out what I was supposed to be doing (if anything), but there's really not penalty for error, so it doesn't take too much from the game.
So long as it's taken for what it is, an interactive autobiography, and not a typical game, it has a fair amount of insight for those open enough to listen.
