Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

The game expresses your feelings well, though the graphics and sounds were poorly made, and, though it qualifies as a game, I guess, it isn't very good. I understand, the point wasn't to entertain people or to make a fun game, it was to get your message and story out. But you don't have to take hormones or try to change your gender to make yourself feel better. God loves you and if he created you as a man, you don't need to take hormones or try to change yourself to be a woman or otherwise in order to feel satisfaction and fulfillment. The same if he created you as a woman. But just as he is the God of mercy, love, kindness, creativity, humor (yes he can tell jokes I'm sure), God is also a God of Free Will, which is why we are allowed to obey him or disobey him, to choose whether to wear red green or purple, or what kind of life we lead. God bless you.

rock on \m/ I'm genderqueer myself and generally feeling more masculine all the time oops totally confused about my gender lol and I'd say this is a good art game, nice interactive story. shows experiences well, but I do have to say I don't like the flashing on the menus screen and such, could be bad for epilptics too/ Great ways of illustrating etc.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

although i must agree it was a basic and unfortunatly kinda boring game, i think the story was beautiful and ur tougher than u think. for all you out there that think its ok to be abusive to someone who isnt confortable with the gender that they were born with and the position that society has put them in, then i feel sorry for you, you are weak and cowardly. i wish you all the best anna.

This game was pretty good in helping me understand your emotions. You put a lot of simple, subtle nuances to simple controls. I really liked the psych test one, the draining energy one, all the shield/mouth ones. My favorite was the breasts/spikes one; the moment I realized I could not only be immune to spikes, but kill the spikes altogether was great.

Not the greatest flash I've seen, but some good work.

Good for you that you're becoming what you are on the inside. BUT- don't get mad when people assume what your gender is by your outside. After all, that's all anyone has to go on. I am a guy, but sometimes people mistake me for a girl (usually in photos, no idea why.) I don't really get butthurt over it, because I know better. Good art game.
