=== ABOUT ===
This was only made for fun as a response to a tumblr post, don't take it too seriously.
Please keep an open mind while playing. Thank you.

Also I would like to note that this is in no way meant to insult cis people in general, I'm sorry for giving that impression and apologize to anyone that might have felt insulted.
If you are hateful against transgender people or any other group, please feel insulted.

If you have any suggestions or ideas for improvement, please let me know.

For added fun while playing: Be transgender.

Hm.. 'interestin' would be one way to describe this game.

And aww,it didn't let me cheat. Playing as female, i saw the word 'brother' so shot off the 'brot' leaving me with 'her' and then got promptly beaten for trying to pick it up :D

well I tried :D

Relax. This is just a game making fun of these idiotic Tumblr social justice warriors (SJWs).

So you put out an entire game that basically said, "Cisgender people are stupid, throw rocks at them"?

It's hard NOT to take it seriously, especially since it's another step towards turning "cisgender" into an insult.


VOEC responds:

I agree with you on that.
I did not write the original idea, but if I would have I wouldn't have called the enemy cisbot, since as you said not every cis person is ignorant towards trans people.
But I wanted to stick to the original tumblr post since that was kind of the idea behind the whole thing.
I guess it stems from the writers personal experience with some cis people in her life.
I did not in any way wanted to say that cis people are all hateful and insult transgender people, but I recognize that it can give that impression and I'm very sorry for it.
I knew that this might be a problem. But I also didn't know if I should change it and how to call him other than asshole-bot, and that seems a bit stupid.
But if you have any suggestion how to make it clear, that this is not meant to insult cis people in the context of the game, I would very, very much appreciate your input. Thanks.
