Not much of a game per se, more like artistic storytelling using gaming language. This is one of those games that I truly wanted to like, the subject is very refreshing and the personal aspect it dwelves into gives some depth to the whole experience, but, sadly, it feels like a game for people who don't care that much about games, and frankly, if feels a little rushed and too much preoccupied with itself and the grandiosity of the gesture of share rather than give a truly remarkable take on the subject matter. Feels a little hollow to me.

Game play was terrible. Graphics are worse.
The story and the way the story was told is good.
I also hope this helps some people going through similar problems.

Good for you that you're becoming what you are on the inside. BUT- don't get mad when people assume what your gender is by your outside. After all, that's all anyone has to go on. I am a guy, but sometimes people mistake me for a girl (usually in photos, no idea why.) I don't really get butthurt over it, because I know better. Good art game.

Meh. Wasn't even really a game. Would've been more entertaining as a five sentence blog post.

I actually agree with SeelkadoomPL to an extent. This felt more like interactive modern "art" than a game. I'm not putting down your experiences, or the way you convey them (I actually liked the pixely art style in some areas, I also found lots of the ways you conveyed certain scenes as creative), but as a game, this just doesn't really cut it. Aside from the tiny little interactive parts, I felt like this would've fared much better as a movie than a game. I feel like McMillen has the perfect blend: interesting art/story along with strong gameplay. Again, I'm not against your story, or the way the art was portrayed, but how it fared as a "game", since you did label it so.
