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.

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.

I was very confused when I first started but found myself thoroughly interested in seeing the rest of it. Like many people before me have said, this is incredibly engaging for such a simple "game." It's 100% about the story and it was totally worth the five minutes it took. I'm sorry if this is redundant or useless. haha

Love me some art games. We don't get enough submissions that properly use game mechanics as a form of story telling that allow for the user to understand concepts in ways they couldn't as easily in other mediums. 5/5 to counter balance all the idiots who think that something needs a level up system or other generic Skinner box techniques to be a game.

The piece isn't without flaws, but they are few and don't really take away from the overall experience. I feel like the art could be slightly higher resolution, the atari feel seems like it's stretching the concept a bit.
