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.

I liked the style and the sound effects. Gameplay was simple and effective at conveying your point(s) with symbolism and explicit imagery. Overall it was a good little bit of educational fun and all... however, I think it was too easy. I know this game's main objective is to simply convey your thoughts on your experience... however, if you are trying to convey that it was at all challenging for you, then the GAME itself should ALSO present some better challenges to the player... just a thought.

On a side note, one thing I was rather curious about were the references to your girlfriend. This has nothing really to do with the game, I was just wondering what your relationship with her is. I'm not saying it doesent make sense for a man to want to become a woman and maintain a relationship with another female, I can easily imagine why one would desire this for a number of reasons. It's just out of the ordinary, so-to-speak, and therefore a curious point of interest, one that could have potential to be addressed in the game if you so desired, that is.

Interesting way of sharing you experience :) (made me think a bit of wario games)
I'd have wanted more info about you "psyche" changes (hormones influencing your emotions, etc)
Hope your blood pressure gets better ma'am.

This, is a good thing. There needs to be more things like this out there, and while I can't say this is a game, I mean it is. But it's not really a game in a sense that you can lose. Very little actual gameplay you see. But, in terms of what this represents. It's wonderful. I haven't played really anything that makes me take a look at this process. And while the game itself only gives a bit of an overview of what going through this can be like, (I understand it goes better or worse for other people). It's still wonderful that this can be played, and a lot of people can see it for what it is, instead of what might be different.
