dys4ia is an autobiographical game about the period in my life when i started hormone replacement therapy.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Beautiful. I loved the image of the shape trying to pass through a gap in the wall and being unable to fit. Although the gameplay was simple, I played it less for that and more for the imagery and symbolism. The people leaving negative and rude comments are painfully obvious in their ignorance. "Remember, you're submitting a REVIEW for this CONTENT. This isn't a place for you to make smug jokes, post stupid nonsense, or act like a total jerk." Art is just another way of expressing emotion and personal experience, and this game does this nicely.

Wow, I have never seen a game so well crafted, and so symbolic. I don't think I have ever called a video game a masterpiece, but this is just art, it's a complete masterpiece. I think you have created one of the best video games I have ever played. The music is beautiful, the graphics are good, and the whole story is depressing. You have created one of the best video games that I have ever played, created one of the few games that I consider art, and probably created one of the best games on Newgrounds. Well done ma'am.

Wow, first time i played a "game" of this class...left me thinking a lot.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I really sympathize with your situation, I am a transgender person too. The story is beautiful and touching, although the gameplay is a bit lacking. But this kind of game is about the story. Ignore the haters who call you disgusting or horrible, and just be yourself. They don't understand what it's like, feeling like your body is all wrong, and having people call you the opposite of what your gender really is. Love, CoolGirl

To me, this is one of the great examples of an "art" game. Full disclosure, I am a Straight-ish White Male so I fall into the least discriminated category of the human race. Playing this game is like stepping into another persons shoes, it makes you open you mind a little bit and see things from a different perspective. I feel like I just got a small part of the experience of a transgendered person, a valuable experience in teaching people that don't understand and to comfort and provide affirmation for those undergoing the process of HRT. Its a very personal story told in an original fashion and I am glad to have had the opportunity to listen to it.
