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.

the game play was... admittedly simplistic, but I didn't really play for the game, I wanted to hear the opinions expressed, and they, were beautiful, Simply Beautiful. Like How I am sure you the game author are. Thank you for sharing this experience with us.

Holy mother of fuck a lot of people didn't get the point. It's not about the game experience itself, you thick sons of bitches. It's about this woman's story of pain and the prejudice she had to overcome to finally feel like herself. I mean, this is the absolute epitome of an "art game"; it's not about how much fun the game is, it's about realizing what it all means, and realizing what it means by all of us. The creator of this game is very brave for putting her story out for others to judge like this. As an author, I'm perfectly aware of how difficult it can be to let other people in on your thoughts like this, and given the personal nature of this story, and how much it means to her, I can only imagine that this must have been a hundred thousand times more difficult for her to share with the world that anything I've ever made. I for one applaud her, not only for her struggle, but for her bravery and, I think, kindness, to allow us to experience this with her. I'm not a homosexual, or transgendered, or a furry, or anything of those sorts, but I understand how she felt. And I can wholeheartedly say that the game--listen carefully now--doesn't fucking matter. It's her story in flash form, and we should all feel damn honored to be allowed to experience it.

5/5, 10/10, et cetera. Great game, and I'm sorry that not everyone could truly appreciate it.

So simple yet so perfect! Fully expressive as possible as such "art games" must to be. I can only congratulate and praise your honesty. Surely you've helped people in similar situations.

I wish I could give this more stars!

This is beautiful thank you so much for making & sharing this. You seem to have a wonderful girlfriend.

I have dated a few trans people in the past and have witnessed first hand how hard it can be but also how exciting when the little changes appear. The T in LGBT(etc) needs to be more visible and with your art/game you just made it a touch more visible. I hope you make more.
