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.

i really love this game its very complex as in its overall topic and there arent very many games that focus on any of the topics you have here. So good job keep improving.

Rad game, a lot of fun. I was immediately upset at cisbot for not letting me choose a non-binary gender on my first playthrough. I'd love to see more awesomeness like this ^_^

I really liked it! The music, the art, and the style. The gameplay was simple but fun. I like the social commentary aspect, and I'm glad that there are games that transpeople can identify with!

A fairly well crafted game, I'd say. It does a good job of doing what it sets out to do, namely highlighting the abuse and generally poor treatment of transgendered individuals by some of society's less understanding members. Not much to do within it, but that's not unusual for flashgames. That being said, gameplay does tend to get a little dull before long, but I can't really fault it for that due to the underlying messages. I'm at a bit of a loss as to what else to say, however. Overall, though, I'd say this was a pretty good creation.

I love when games serve as valid, poignant social commentary. As a cisfemale, this really helps me to understand what the trans* community must go through... to a certain extent, at least. Obviously as a cisfemale I'm never going to fully understand. But I digress. It's a solid game, short but sweet, and like I said- its message is incredibly valuable and timely. Well done.
