dys4ia is an autobiographical game about the period in my life when i started hormone replacement therapy. it's a story about me, and is certainly not meant to represent the experience of every trans person.

Ok, as a game it's bad, and not fun. It has bad graphics and basic mechanics. But this is just wonderful. It's not meant to be fun, I don't think. It's expressive, very very expressive. It instills a different emotion on each level, building up to this happy hope at the end. It is a wonderful expression. I feel this is less of a game and more an interactive artistic medium. And as the latter, this nailed it. I hope to see more things like this in the future.

I'm not a fan of the term "art game". But this game here, this game made me feel something. And that's art for me.

The only thing that I would change about this is the "hub". I feel that it breaks me away from getting indulged into this 100%. Other then that, this is truly the potential of flash media. Hopefully this will inspire other people to do the same!

It's interesting and well presented. I usually wouldn't respect a trans- gendered person, but unlike most, you aren't shoving your sexuality/ 'gender' down anybody's throat. I wish you the best of luck, but you are what you were born as. If you prefer to be called ma'am, that's fine, but don't be too insulted if someone calls you a sir. On a lighter note- be glad you don't have to put up with 'natures little gift'. Be glad you have the best of both genders.

An "art-game", which, means, it's not really going to be very popular at NewGrounds (look at the various art-game parodies) and really not very popular with me, either. However, it does have a message, it's a positive message that potentially reaches across numerous audiences, so as a propaganda piece I think it deserves a pretty high score. And as a game there's one thing is absolutely does not do: disappoint! You reach all the objectives if you're willing to put in the slightest effort, and the narrative is told completely. So it's a narrative-based rails game, and there's no getting around that. I don't like those games but I find it hard to disagree with a game that has a complete message that I can comprehend and that I think is positive.
