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.
I enjoyed the game, mostly because I somehow feel I can relate to this. It's weird because I haven't had any hormone therapy or anything like it, but something just clicks in my brain. I suppose it's because of my mind-set that everyone should be kind and understanding to people. Perhaps it's because you're a brave person, unlike myself. I'm not sure, but I hope you live a happy life, even if this comment/review didn't make any sense at all.
As a game, this stunk. However, as a story, I would have liked to have seen; more explanation into the reasoning behind your decisions, what other options there are available and why you chose to use a specific type of hormone replacement. I believe a lot is left unanswered. Questions that a viewer did not have going into the flash, but would pick up along the way.
Sadly, this is one of the most boring games I've played on Newgrounds in quite some time. There just isn't anything to it. Screens where there are no real obstacles, no choices to make in what you do or how you do it. No real sense of accomplishment. The oddly-colored visuals are nice, however. But the odd blabbering in the background gets annoying quickly. Also, the whole thing is rather confusing. What was your purpose in taking the hormones? What was wrong to begin with? What are you trying to attain, and what kind of hormone therapy was it? Not everyone knows those things off the top of their heads. Indeed, it seems like most people know little about different types of hormone therapy. The game should have at least explained it a bit.
What I don't get is why you have to change your gender just to express yourself or to feel normal.
Im sorry,but im fairly certain that your story is not unlike other peoples,just you have the ability to make flash,though in semi poor quality. This "game" is a game in the sense that a dvd has an interactive section,making this questionable to being a game. I was growing up and continue to see people start the trend into transsexualism,but those who do usually pass those "hoops". It sounds like you really just went to the least strictest office just so you didnt go through any problems,which is kind of the easy way out. Doesnt quite sound like you even talked with people about this aside your girlfriend and one or two friends. Most people shunned you because of the lack of talking or understanding,which is a common problem among human beings.
Although id like to give this "game" some love about how you are making a big decision,i can't get into it as with most art games,for they are usually secular to like one percent of the population. I wish you the best in this transition in life,but please dont make it a bigger deal than it is.
