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 thought this was creative beyond all reason and I enjoyed it a lot even though it was more of an interactive flash about yourself than a game.

Good overall but I'd say that in the spirit of mantaining the narrative flowing you missed some opportunities to insert some more interesting gameplay elements.

There's one example in the screen about going though loops. The text tells me I have to go through "too many loops", but the game just makes me go through 3. What I'm trying to explain is that you could have included more gameplay challenges as metaphors of the real-life challenges you are illustrating.

In short, the game as such didn't compel me very much to keep playing it. All that kept me going was wanting to learn more about your experience.

The graphics and sound have a nice touch to them, and the controls are just right.

I understand that it's an "art game" but it seems you forgot the "game" part. I would at least let the art part slide over it if that was interesting or meaningful, but it wasn't, gender reassignment is nothing to get your panties in a bunch about or to go through all the effort to make an engine about. You should have made a video instead.

I liked the story. But the gameplay, audio, graphics? YUCK. Terrible. Crappy. The story was beautiful, but this shouldn't be a game.
