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.

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.

-nice mellow music
- creative with presentation,
- peer into the mind of a hormonally dis-balanced and confused individual modern diet has produced. a victim of eugenics and population control.

- i didn't have fun or feel i'm putting any meaningful input
- the objectives bear no consequences
- i don't know if i failed to do something or if a succeeded, vague shapes
- tries to be an emotional story but ends up feeling bland, with a bitter, unresolved end.
thoughts on the topic (no part of this is aimed at offending anyone):
I'm doing the reader a favor here, so no bitching and complaining!

BPA: Death by Plastic, "Bisphenol A" a dangerous estrogenic is put in most soft plastics, foils and tin cans. It is especially dangerous when microwaving plastic with acidic food.

This along with some other factors like deficiency in zinc and other necessary vitamins and minerals can lead to ;

sterility, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation,cranial bones not growing properly,myopia, bad teeth, lack of energy and sex drive, fat tissue deposits in the chest area, buttocks, inability to gain muscle or grow a beard and general lack of testosterone.
While first or second generation may take abuse and still be able to procreate, we are now seeing 3d and 4th males become more and more feminine (feeling of "being in the wrong body") or simply sterile while girl are entering sexual maturity MUCH MUCH sooner than normal.

Breast and prostate cancers are on the rise.

if you don't want to be part of this sinister eugenics program, educate yourself, spare your offspring and yourself of these dangers.
U.S. citizens are the most exposed but that doesn't make others are safe and sound.

Eat proper, exercise be healthy, love, be loved and pass it on to your children.

Your are a trooper and the battlefield and there's a war going on.
Good luck, soldier and godspeed! :)

This isn't bad. It's short, and involves very little gameplay, but I didn't have any problem seeing it through to the end, or wanting to get out of it. I love the 8-bit style, so that was a plus, but it's really the story, or lack thereof. It's just a step into someone's life, and on NG, that's an extremely original concept. The only thing preventing me from rating it higher is that there is very, very little gameplay, and I do think that a movie might've worked better for the concept, but it was okay, and I kind of liked it.
